Published Sep 27, 2016After having his 99.9% crowned the winner of this year's Polaris Music Prize, Kaytranada has revealed a regal and retro music video for the collection's outstandingly groovable "You're the One."
Directed by Shomi Patwary, the video pays tribute to various pieces of vintage pop culture, from a Martin logo bite, to a narrative inspired by Eddie Murphy vehicle Coming to America. With the latter in mind, the clip finds a group of women enjoying a night dancing around an apartment filled with VHS tapes and a Super Nintendo before being tempted into calling a hotline to meet up with a travelling prince. As it happens, the connect is Kaytranada.
The video concludes with a fancy party at which the overalls-adorned producer shows off moves for various dignitaries. You can see it all play out down below, where you'll also find a recent interview Kaytranada and River Tiber did for the Red Bull Music Academy's animated series The Junction.
