David Knight - 25th Nov 2014

The combination of Skrillex and Nabil Elderkin has resulted in everything you might hope for - a balls-to-the-wall, all-action, white-knuckle ride of a music video for the unsubtle Fuck Th#t, where even the hero is really quite a bad boy.

Nabil headed to Morocco to shoot this tale of a hot-headed ball of energy stuck in jail, keeping fit while everyone else is on the pipe – and then on release promptly ignores his girlfriend's advice, and heads to the nearest illegal bare-knuckle boxing match. 

Fighting, shooting, car chases.... it's a seriously good pulp drama, North African-style, with a dose of mysticism thrown in. And when the guy in the black robes and the big book turns up, your number may be up...
