For the full-throttle dubstep of True Tiger's Slang Like This, Sam Pilling unveils a 'day in the life' type scenario with rapper P-Money walking the viewer through his 'hood.

"For me the song has a real good vibes community feel to it and I wanted to emphasise this in the video by getting community members to sync different lyrics from the track" explains Pilling.

"A one-day shoot in and around P-Money's neighbourhood, we spent the morning wandering around Forest Hill Station and up Dartmouth Road approaching members of the public to feature in the video.? ?Alongside this we filmed a lot of sync and P really nailed the performances, banging them out with energy and dynamic, all day long. As another way of making it appear that P was showing 'us' a glimpse of South London life I wanted to break the 'fourth wall' by following behind P-Money as he walked around, in an almost documentary style then getting him to turn and rap directly to camera.??

"To further emphasise the community spirit and as a nice visual to end the track, we orchestrated a sort of 'street party' (reminiscent of one of DJ Kool Herc's from the 70s in the Bronx.) Void Audio very kindly brought down some epic 'Stasys 3' speakers, The True Tiger boys set up their DJ gear and we stole some power from a local tower block tenant. True Tiger mixed live for the crowd, DJ Cable showed up to scratch up the records and some break-dancers came down to rock the party! I think it is safe to say that a good time was had by all!"
