Melbourne rapper Jordan Dennis has been impressing us for a while now, having released his debut EP HDM1 in 2019, showcasing one of the coldest flows in our 16 Bars AUNZ series, and recently hitting the gas even harder on his single ‘Doc Marty‘ back in April. We’re pleased to know that the young spitter shows no signs of slowing as he releases his new track ‘The Link’ today, alongside a fresh visual that turned out sick despite being up against isolation constraints, injuries and cross-continental borders.
‘The Link’ was brought to life remotely by Japanese director Kensaku Kakimoto (Film Reaktor) and had initially been planned to feature Jordan, however, he injured himself days before filming. Deciding to continue shooting regardless, the music video was filmed in an abandoned Sydney train tunnel and features a fierce troupe of dancers.
Speaking to Jordan Dennis about the track, he told us: “The link started out as a joke between myself and thatkidmaz which upon further thought, I decided it could be a dope track and universally enjoyable since we’re constantly sending/being sent links to pretty much everything through our phones. With the current state of the world, we need to not forget that we are all connected beyond our screens. We are inherently linked. I’m grateful to Filmreaktor for creating the opportunity and the vision of director Kensaku Kakimoto who truly brought the idea to life with the traditional Japanese cultural belief of the thin red string that connects us to someone else, deeply understanding the root of the song. Send me the link.”
