Dance music crown holder A-Trak adds another jewel to his catalog of boundary-pushing music videos with “Push,” premiering today on TheFADER.com. Director Ramon Ayala creates a truly surreal, decadent world that flips “party” scenes inside out. “My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle ‘lets make this night live forever!’ videos,” says A-Trak. “Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It’s kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man.” Starring ATL producer TM88 (808 Mafia), a cast of European semi-nude models, and a tiger, “Push” is audiovisual indulgence like none other. Watch it immediately and get “Push” now on iTunes!
