Cape Town-based director and photographer Adriaan Louw gives a distinctly African take to a downtown 70s vibe in his video for Major Lazer and DJ Maphorista.

It's vibrant, feelgood, and beautifully photographed by DoP Thomas Revington as it features rollicking performances by the featured artists Nasty C, Ice Prince, Patoranking and Jidenna.
