What Habbens in Lenden…

My video for ma muse Fatima Al-Qadiri’s Genre Specific X-Perience album came out a few weeks ago and I forgot to post it.

Pitchfork, Fader and a truck of others featured it and it was Tumbled to its high water mark closing in at around 14,000 views on the Youtube since then.

Some info on the track & the vid:

Fatima Al Qadiri’s ‘How Can I Resist U’ is a love letter to London in general and Dubstep (before it wobbled) in particular.
“Lenden” as it’s known has become a historic site of pilgrimage for wealthy Arabs seeking the forbidden fruits of sex, drugs, gambling and alcohol.
Interspersed with Youtube footage of Ma’alaya dances specific to Gulf countries like UAE and Oman–the super cars, dancing girls and brutal council estates

in the video are part of the down-and-dirty dream that a trip to London signifies for Khaleejis (Gulf Arabs). The color of the video is based on an
infamous Arab royal’s custom ‘Gulf Blue’ Koenigsegg CCXR that terrorized the streets of the city’s posh neighborhoods.

How Can I Resist U? is viewable behind these blue letters.
