For renowned South African DJ, DJ Dimpelz, crafting a banger is least of his worries. His latest, ‘FUYD’ (Fuck Up Your Day) is an attestation to his credentials as a producer who knows what the streets, the radio and clubs want. Featuring Reason, Ice Prince and Royal Empire (Ice Prince was on his ‘Bae Coupe’ tune last year) he created a simple and fun video for FUYD.
Shot mostly in black and white in a leisure centre (thanks to the skate boarding arena and swings), the video has the artistes doing the dab whiles telling the world why they are here to FUYD.
One of the beat moments in the video comes around the 3:48 sec and 4:36 sec marks when TRK’s line ‘oh my God, I think I’m sexy’ was met with camera snapping sound. For them to shoot the video in an open space rather than in a club or enclosed area for a song with a club feel is commendable.
FUYD is an anthem for the successful: those who have achieved or achieving in their respective fields. They are the ones who can scream ‘ No one can tell me to behave’ along with Reason. And As DJ Dimpelz reminded all on the opening of the song ‘All y’all niggas keep hoping I fall off mayne, I’m about to fuck up your day’. And truly, he did it with a bang.
