Pa Salieu 'Block Boy' by Nos
Nos directs Pa Salieu's latest high energy number, paying homage to pre-Covid era club settings.
Encapsulating the euphoria of unabashed partying and dancing - something of a distant memory for nearly everyone right now - the visual moves at a breakneck pace, getting right in on the breathless action.
DoP Olan Collardy creates a sense of frenzied fun through the cinematography, utilising coruscating strobe lights and off-kilter camera angles to match the energy of the performance.
"I've been wanting to work with Pa Salieu for a long time and was really excited to jump on such a high energy track," says Nos. "The idea was to emulate the typical Gambian raves that Pa is so familiar with, but in the UK.
"I was excited to work with so many dancers in one video, the energy they brought was perfect for that dancehall vibe we are so familiar with."
