Since we’re all about Shanghai, we could not miss (freshly relocated in L.A after 8 years living in Shanghai) UK music producer CONRANK x ZEAN latest video ‘I’m About’. Urban beats and dub bass blend in smoothly with iLLaman tight & fast flow. Shanghai skyscrapers, destroyed buildings and Long-Museum full-concrete structures sets a new perspective of the city.
Ultimately ‘I’m About’ is a proof of the city’s potential to uplift underground-music culture worldwide. Even though we would have appreciated a little more diversity in the locations, Shanghai + dub/rap music is a refreshing formula for music-videos isn’t it?

This was a super fun shoot. I literally got a call the night before to see if I wanted to shoot a music video in the morning, i said sure why not. We did this whole thing run and gun in Shanghai with just 1 lens, 1 gimbal and 1 Sony A7Rii.
UK-born and bred DJ and producer Conrank has quickly established himself as one of bass music’s most innovative voices. After spending years as a globe-trotting musician, including an 8 year residency in Shanghai, Conrank settled into his new home base in Los Angeles, CA in early 2017.
