Unknown T 'Throwback' by Labi Odebunmi
Grime videos don't usually get labelled as being charming, but Labi Odebunmi's video for Unknown T deserves that description.
The video for Throwback taps into the nostalgic theme of the song, with T reminiscing about growing up in Hackney, East London, back in the day.
It's all sparked off when a puzzled young relative of his finds his very old Sony Erickson phone. Then we head back to 2003, with T as a primary school age kid, messing around with his mates on the bus, having his first crush. Then it's later on, in 2009, when he's a more streetwise teenager.
The 'period detail' is very good, with lots of Noughties-generation cultural touches. It's also nicely shot by Arran Green, employing different ratios to establish the different time periods. Clearly a lot of heart, soul and smart production work has gone into this. Very good work by director Labi and his team.
