David Knight - 26th June 2017

Drawing inspiration from the early rave days and grainy VHS videos, Taichi Kimura's video for Sub Focus follows a group of friends as they head out to an underground warehouse party. The video takes the viewer back to the era that influenced both artists’ careers and style.

Kimura, who’s originally from Japan, says: “To try and portray London in a different manner looking from the outside in, that was my biggest challenge for this project. I used locations and outfits to create a futuristic London.”
