Building yet more hype for his album release, the innovative artist shares an epic tale of friendship and war…in space
Boundary-pushing producer Apashe unveils his latest mind-bending video for new single ‘Human’ featuring frequent collaborator Wasiu, out on 28th September.
An epic, space-faring narrative, the music video for ‘Human’ is a typically extraordinary visual from Apashe. The video features frequent collaborator Wasiu, who previously worked on Apashe cuts including ‘Majesty’ and ‘Legend’, as well as joining the producer on tour.
It depicts the pair rising to megastardom and conquering planet Earth, before blasting off to space in a rocket, only to crash on a desolate planet. As Apashe and Wasiu separate the desert of this new terrain, they each join warring tribes, leading to an epic climactic battle between the two. Directed by Adrian Villagomez, the video was shot at Electric Forest and on location in Tokyo, Montreal & Mongolia.
Following the recent Magugu collaboration ‘Revenge of the Orchestra’ and the stunning ‘Devil May Cry’ ft Sofiane Pamart, ‘Human’ offers another taste of Apashe’s upcoming album Antagonist, which is set to feature crossover influences of classical music with recordings of the Prague Philharmonic and Bulgarian Symphony Orchestras, and collaborations with a number of high-profile artists. The single also follows the release of ‘Fracture’, the acclaimed collaboration with Joey Valance & Brae and Flux Pavilion, and ‘Gasoline’ featuring Delhi hiphop star RAGA, and precedes the producer’s upcoming headlining tour with a Brass Orchestra.
A strong conceptual thinker and rhyming technician, Wasiu is perhaps known best for ‘Majesty’, his hit song with Apashe that boasts 50 million cumulative views and 67 million streams. The Montreal artist has performed at SXSW, The Montreal Jazz Fest, POP Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Sled Island, and has opened for the likes of Playboi Carti, Little Simz, Jazz Cartier, BadBadNotGood, Lauryn Hill, Eric B, Rakim and Grandmaster Flash. He will also join Apashe’s ‘Antagonist Tour’, where he’ll perform material for his upcoming project called ‘The Traveller’.
