Kay2 x The $trange Days - Live to Let You Shine
Directed by myself Matthew Peltier, the video and concept was written by me and shot over two days in North London.
Kay2 x The $trange Days like their name straddle two worlds, two rapper/producers, constantly contrasting music styles and each other to create their distinctive and eclectic sound.
Love fuelled raps dripped over dark and haunting melodies, to songs that deliver that extreme hatred for a love lost almost contradicted by ballad like production. K2x$D are haunting storytellers x beautiful song makers, in equal measure.
I wanted to build on this already filmic world that K2x$D had created by telling a story of ‘extreme love’, a love the causes victims on both sides.
I wanted to express what lengths the obsessed might go to get what they wanted in the name of passion. Starring the angel like talents of Charlotte Hunter and the K2x$D boys themselves we set out to make a film with an amazing soundtrack rather than just another music promo.
‘Live to Let You Shine’ is a beautiful song with a horror-film like intensity and I sought only to strength the emotional narrative K2x$D offer us with images that both compliment and contrast each other while being equally beautiful and haunting.
UK rap stalwart Smiler blesses the crowd at Yoyo London with his rock refix SBTV F64. He kills it, the crowd go cray: done.

Wired bless Concrete @ Shoreditch House with another stellar line-up of emerging musical talent. From the sultry tones of Louise Golbey, the love-soaked words of Sam Garrett to a climactic finish from the electric Special K’s, it was a reaffirmation of the Wirey skills of Kate Bond and Michael Duke. A spring-kled line-up in the ever popular East London.
