RUFFMERCY wields animation wizardry in video for DJ Snake & Mercer’s ‘Let’s Get Ill’
Something of an anthem was born in DJ Snake and Mercer‘s invigorating future house smash, “Let’s Get Ill.” It only makes sense, then, that the powerhouse collaborators behind the tune would tap the talents of RUFFMERCY in fashioning a music video worthy of their brainchild’s madness. The animator boasts some strong credentials, boasting a resume that includes projects for Thom Yorke and Flying Lotus.
In “Let’s Get Ill,” RUFFMERCY brings the colorful track to life with equally vibrant visuals that fit in well with the graffiti-laden enclaves of Paris where it was filmed. The animations dance along with the real life breakdancers in the video, who do well in tying together the gritty urban aesthetic presented within. It might be difficult to not want to get on the floor and join them by the end, especially given the track’s hollowed, jacking house kicks and commanding vocals.
