On Tuesday the video for "Night Out Prep" will be out. It's the first single of of CitYearning EP.
|The premiere night.|
We already had a private premiere on Friday with the cast and selected people attending. After the screening I played a live that was a bit different from what you have heard before. If you would like to get an invitation to the next secret show then press like on the fan page box on the right. Read on for the stories of how we made the video.

It all started about 8 years ago when I met Raphael in a religious camp in France. We were both into hip-hop and we bonded over that. I hadn't met him after that, but he had been reading Fluon and was amazed about the nightlife we had over here. So the logical conclusion was to invite him over here. As he had started producing videos for Red Bull's parties, sports' and dance events he suggested that we make a Barthol Lo Mejor music video when he comes over. I couldn't have agreed more.

He came during the last weeks of April and I invited over the cast to do the video. It has become a kind of a tradition that our music videos' budgets can rather be measured in bottles than money. So this video took 4 bottles of regular size champagne, bottle of big ass champagne, two bottles of vodka and countless beers and ciders.
|The smoky selfie moment|
We filmed over the weekend with 11 different cast members plus a cat. A big thanks to everyone who came as the people who didn't come were about as much. The very special moment was when my friend from Latvia called me while we were shooting asking about what to do with her two friends in Tallinn. I immediately invited them over and gave them a surprise part.

The vibe of the shoot was between ecstatic and dull as we drifted through several creative bursts and withdrawals. By the end of both nights people were drunk and there wasn't much more to do than head out to show our guest the nightlife at EKKM, Red Emperor and so on.

It took over the summer to get the video done and there were altogether 3 cuts made. I remixed the music between the second and third cut to make it suite the video better. Like the video for "Frank Call" this one also had a crew of two if you don't count the cast.
