David Knight - 8th Jan 2016

Here's Edward John Drake's shelved video for Skrillex & Diplo project Jack Ü's Beats Knockin' - now cleared for release on Vimeo - featuring an unlikely fight between an ass-kicking blonde and a motorbike rider in shorts.

The finished video's rejection was clearly not a pleasant outcome for Drake and his colleagues. "It's been a helluva experience," he says. "But I would like Jake Ures' amazing camerawork to be highlighted and championed."
