David Knight - 22nd June 2018

Kamasi Washington has created an instant jazz classic with Street Fighter Mas. Now AG Rojas has made a brilliant video for it, that puts Kamasi's warm yet rather enigmatic personality at its heart - together with his obsession with the king of vintage arcade games.

Kamasi gets fine support from BattleCat too as his more excitable foil in a story of stately simplicity, beautifully composed shots and a general mood of gentle surrealism that works perfectly with the vibe of the song.

If you don't have a smile on your face after a minute, check your pulse.
