Cyber – Down Low ft. Green Hypnotic & Kaytranada [Video]
Montreal, QC – Montreal houses some of the North’s best musical talent and this video (which came out last year) for Cyber‘s track “Down Low” (featuring Kaytranada and Green Hypnotic) sees these young voices coming together to make something fresher than ever. If there is one thing I love, it’s seeing crisp, slowed-down visuals in videos. What can I say? It just looks good. But if there’s anything that the visuals for “Down Low” establish, it’s that there is so much more than this video for this outstanding track coming out of Montreal, that is managing to make some major waves.
Decked out in super all black, ultra-demure clothing and jewelry, Cyber holds center stage in this monochrome masterpiece of a music video directed by Pierre-Olivier Giradot and filmed by Will Gignac. Check it out.
In-and-out of a trill beat (that sounds like it was FedExed from somewhere south of the border), “Down Low” rides out with crazy drum kicks, a smooth beat and - of course - Cyber’s beautiful vocals and style. Before long, Green Hypnotic hits the track and oozes ounces of swag all over this dreamy song.
Talking about the ills of an unstable relationship, “Down Low” gets on different levels by being undeniably sexy and truthful all in one tune. Unlike the thousands of other trill-influenced videos hitting the net, “Down Low” is dope because it replaces the overdone plumes of weed smoke (that many feel are necessary to make a worthwhile video). Instead this fun production captures Cyber, Kaytranada and Green Hypnotic having an awesome time.
