Dance battles, satin and one gold gun… 88 Rising interprets Goldlink’s “Spectrum”
The first installment of Made in 88, a series of originally-produced music videos by production house 88 Rising, takes a stab at visualizing Goldlink’s hit, “Spectrum.”
Based out of New York City and heavily repping the Eastern hemisphere, the company’s library of videos focuses on highlighting Asians and Asian-Americans dabbling in the world of hip-hop (with their Facebook mission listed as, “Get Oriented”). With co-signs from Soulection and partially responsible for a possible Ghostface “Dat Stick” remix, 88 Rising’s version of “Spectrum” is but an open door to see what the video house has in store.
A sprinkling of Tagalog is the first thing you hear on Goldlink’s “Spectrum” and the very ex that spoke recorded those words takes centerstage in this video, alongside dancer Brian Puspos.
As the video unfolds, we see some dance battles, motorcycles, a whole slew of satin bombers and one conniving chick that’s out for GoldLink’s shorty and Puspos’s Netflix-and-chill interest. There’s a tale to be told here it seems, one of love, lust, betrayal and a single gold gun… a whole love revenge story, if you will.
