Premiere: Mali Jo$e celebrate their Fremantle home in the clip to Mistakes
The Perth hip-hop pairing cap off a big year thus far with a new video clip, a nod to the area they're from.
It's difficult to find a local rapper who has caught our attention so much in the past few months than that of Mali Jo$e, the pairing of Fremantle's Mali and his production partner-in-crime OJC43 (Oskar Johns Carpenter) that since emerging a couple of months back with their introductory debut Mistakes, have proved unstoppable. Whether it's teaming up with fellow local champion Adrian Dzvuke and playing One Day's Fright Night Lights show or finding themselves a finalist of triple j's Unearthed High competition, Mali has consistently been unbeatable in their small-time as a local rap front-runner - a big reason why we named them an act putting our local rap scene on the national map.
Today, they put a cap on their mammoth year thus far with the video clip to Mistakes, which as they duo explain, is a bit of a nod to their home - Fremantle. "The video clip was filmed in our hometown, Fremantle. Couldn't think of a better place to do it," says Oscar on the video clip, which sees the pair run around the Perth south with a handful of Fremantle landmarks in the background (something you'll easily spot if you're a fan of the city). "Honestly is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The sunsets are the best in the world."
Continuing, Mali and Oscar explain how the single's clip came about in the form of another collaboration with Dylan Guy - who has been a big part of the Mali Jo$e story visually-speaking. "Dylan Guy helped us create this video clip, he is the king! He has helped us with pretty much all our photos and now directed our video clip. When we talked about the VHS aesthetic being a major part of the video he was straight on the same page as us and we knew it was going to be a pretty ass video clip!" says Oscar, before Mali continues: "This actual creating of this video clip was super chill, we chilled at our favourite spots in Freo and basically pressed record. We didn't want some stupid over produced crap. We wanted to keep it authentic and organic."
"So glad to be getting this video clip out before the end of the year! Its the perfect way to wrap up this crazy, crazy 2019! So much happened for us and we could be more stoked to get a video out for this. It's just the right thing to do before we show everyone what going down in 2020! We got some major moves to pull and we’re excited to share!!"
Dive into the clip now, and stay tuned as Mali Jo$e continue to soar in 2019 and beyond:
