As a member of the Hot Natured family, one-half of Infinity Ink, and an accomplished solo artist, Ali Love has established himself as a jack of all trades of sorts. Back in July, he birthed his second album P.U.M.P (for Crosstown Records) and it's twelve tracks of splendid sounds, ranging from after-hours surrealism to peaktime floor-fillers.
One of the LP's most engrossing cuts is "Picture Perfect," a tune littered with shuffling jungle breaks and an infectious vocal line that pulls you downward like an encroaching riptide. Today, we have a visual accompaniment to the tune, and it remains on brand with the track's immersive, (third) eye opening nature. Slowly shifting blinds unveil everything one longs for in the darkest hour of the nightclub: masked dancing beauties, hazy red plumes of smoke, and a few segments of animalistic expression.
If you ever wondered what goes on in the backroom of your local nightclub...this is pretty much it.
