WATCH: Blood Diamonds ‘Barcode’ ft. Dominic Lord (Official Video)
A collaboration between a couple of rising talents within their respective scenes has been lifted from near obscurity, as BLOOD DIAMONDS‘ ‘Barcode’ gets itself a very slick looking official video clip.
The clip casts Lord as the director of a film production and follows him as he makes his way around the pre-made neighbourhood set whilst spitting his lines, at one point he makes his assistant strip just cause he said he can. There’s also a detour into a house party, a choreographed dance routine and a bizarre cameo from a caped Blood Diamonds in there too.
And even if on the surface it seems bizarrely abstract, there is a lot going on here, so make sure you have a second or third watch to pick up on all the intricate details and misc-en-scene. But in saying that, we’re yet to pick up on anything anyway.
The release of the clip coincides with the release of Barcode, Pt2 EP – a 3 track release featuring an instrumental of ‘Barcode’ as well as two massive remixes from Widdler and Com Truise. The latter which you can stream below. The EP is available exclusively via nesthq.com
