Remember when music videos were a new thing? In those days, few people had any kind of solid grasp on what a video was or should be. There was a lot of “we don’t know what the hell we’re doing” bandwagon-hopping back then.
But from the ridiculous chaos of it all, there emerged a new breed of artist who were able to fully utilize the potential the new medium offered. Sometimes poignant, touching or humorous, a well-done video could add a whole new artistic dimension to a song. A smartly done video was a very good thing. Turns out, it still is…
The Mdahts have just finished their first-ever video and it is set to premier Apr. 1. The tune is “Time is Passin’”. It features MC Warner and Floami Fly along with the usual gang.
The Mdahts, known for exemplary production technique in the studio, have settled for no less in terms of video production, resulting in a piece that is slick, professional, entertaining and filmed entirely on location right here in our fair city. It’s a sharp little film, a perfect example of “New Old School” and the first of many to come.
