Despite what it’s become in recent years, we have to give it up to MTV for revolutionized music with the music video, especially when done right. It’s videos like Sydney filmmaker Lorin Askill‘s interpretation of Flume and Chet Faker‘s “Drop the Game” that seamlessly weaves the sonic components and visuals together to create a simultaneous storyboard experience.

The dancer in “Drop the Game” is Storyboard P, a Brooklyn dancer that previously interpreted Jay’Z’s entire¬†Magna Carta Holy Grail, who essentially acts as the light among the shadowy streets that he dances upon. Let’s put it this way: if Flume’s dark, lush production is the video’s backdrop, then Storyboard P is Chet Faker’s vocals: the haunting, yet beautiful element that resonates over the track — a direct visual mirror to the balancing act in the sounds.

Flume and Chet Faker are set to release a collaboration project, The Lockjaw EP, on November 26.
