Cat Velez - 19th Jan 2016

Ian Pons Jewell has directed this banger of a video for Valentino Khan's Deep Down Low, following a delirious young man as he walks the streets of Tokyo.

Whether it's caused by fever, hallucinogenic drugs or the track's craze-inducing beat, his nightmarish visions only get progressively wackier after he sits down at a restaurant. But with peoples' dancing facial features and tentacles bursting out of the waitresses eye sockets, there's only so much the man can take before running back on to the streets again.
