"Push the Power"
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (and the Tropics)
We’ve already mentioned that we’d like to step into the shoes of the world-traveling Zakee, who glides from Rio to Philly and back again like it’s no thing at all. That’s how his album Assimilations goes too, effortlessly working that sweet spot between hip hop, lo-fi, and global bass. In the cut “Push the Power,” Zakee leans towards sunny, lo-fi goodness, and for the video he cobbles together what looks like vacation footage of surf and palm trees, amusement park rides, and cannonball dives. It’s a sun-faded good time for everyone.
“Push the Power” is a party groove song, vibing like an indie calypso. So funny that the best part of the video was shot back in Philly. Images of aqua waters cut between footage of an impromptu jam session in somebody’s living room that somehow looks more fun than an exotic island vacation. Of course, the session turns into a Philly house party full of dancing hipsters. Happy hipsters — this video and song will make you wonder, is there any other kind?
