The heartbreak at the heart of Jakwob's Fade - with vocals by Maiday - is expressed through a riveting performance by a single dancer in the video directed by exciting new talent Billy Boyd Cape.

Billy is still at film school in Bournemouth, yet has already notched up a few music video commissions. For this one, he engaged the support of Shameless and shot the video 'in-house', in the Park Village studio. Everything is focussed around the dancer Nicole O'Neill, who gives a powerful performance - with the mood embellished by excellent lighting design, by Enda Bowe, and excellent camera work by Toby Elwes. Clearly one to watch.
