Jimmy Brown - 6th July 2010

The Japanese Popstars - an electronic trio from Derry, Northern Ireland and winners of Best Live Act award at the Irish Dance Music Awards - have signed to Virgin in the UK and enlisted Jon Watts to direct the video to new single Destroy.

Featuring an excellent performance from Jon Spencer looking very serious on an urban walkabout, this excellent, monochrome promo compliments the hypnotic meshing of dirty bass and beats perfectly.
