Cat Velez - 31st Mar 2016

Shot in Hackney, East London, Shockone's video for City Lock follows a homeless man wheeling around an elaborate soundsystem on a trolley, hypnotising city-dwellers as he passes by with the sound of City Lock.

Armed with an irresistible bass, the man single-handedly entrances his random subjects, who can't help but drop whatever they're doing to dance - in zombie fashion - towards the direction of the music. And once he hikes up the sound, the number of dancers grows to a nice little following behind him, until the song ends and the spell is broken, leaving the people dazzled where they stand.
