Depicting the virtuosity of Araabmuzik in a music video can prove challenging. You can cram but so many performance shots of him pounding away at MPC pads into one clip. But translating Araabmuzik’s skill on the beat machine into a video with a storyline was a challenge director Tilla was more than up for.
In the video for “The Prince is Coming” we get the requisite AraabMuzik performance shots juxtaposed with scenes from some ancient, quasi-Egyptian, ritual in the past and future where “giving the drummer some” can decide who wins the battle between the forces of good and evil. Pretty high concept stuff and though we can tell they didn’t break the bank in producing the video, the final product is dope.
