Theme lacks originality
[dropcap]C[/dropcap]oming from Washington, D.C. by way of Lithuania is one of the Capital City’s top spinners, DJ FOtiFO. He has teamed up with DJBothPills to create “White Smoke (Белый дым)”, six minutes of adrenaline fueled, fist pumping music that will command you to dance. I just finished watching the video and here’s my $.02:
The Good – The song is totally Amped. It is a bona fide turntable treat for Dance and Club DJs. Throw this one on at a party and you’re set. MidiaXe Production does a great job capturing the crazy but cool moments of the video. Each scene is precise and well thought out.
The Bad – Here’s a few things I’d like to throw out there…
- I’m not for the whole “scantly clothed girls + hot bests= more views” formula. A great song/video can hold its own without all the extra flesh and this song is definitely a must-have playlist addition.
- If you’re going to have gratuitous ass shots, make sure the lady actually has an ass.
- Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder; and I didn’t behold too much beauty while I was tuned in.
Overall – “White Smoke (Белый дым)” is a great song, but its video could use some attention. Casting and theme seem to be the biggest areas that could be tweaked. A song as powerful and attention grabbing as this probably should have been shot in a club setting with people rocking out to this audio gem. It’s definitely worth checking out though. That’s my $.02. What’s yours?
