Xilent – Boss Wave
In 2013 we were approached by Colonal Blimp to produce a music video for dubstep artist Xilent and their track “Boss Wave”, released on Audioporn Records the same year. The brief was short, but sweet: Can we make a video game themed music video?
We’re not going to keep it a secret that we’re all into video games, and the brief couldn’t have fit us better. But we wanted to give it a twist. During the initial process we discussed the opportunities of taking the video game characters into the real world and make something funny yet visual stunning from it.
When presented to Xilent, they absolutely loved it! From there on, it was game on!
The video was awarded a Vimeo Staff Pick on release and was later also rewarded “Best Music Video” on the BMA Music Awards in 2013.
