David Dallas – Runnin’
Filmed in Hokianga, in the Far North of New Zealand, here’s the latest clip from Kiwi rapper David Dallas, and it’s fairly spectacular. Mostly for all the amazing helicopter shots, but even the shots of the running boy/watching girl and the church interiors are beautiful. Might just be me though, I’m slightly biased, being born and raised there! Judge for yourself, but I reckon you’ll concur.
What is not even vaguely in dispute is that this lad is doing pretty damn well for himself, with this tune picked up by gaming powerhouses EA Sports for their legendary Madden Football and Fifa 14 titles as part of their soundtracks, as well as being used in the trailers. With it already doing well in the states, this should push it over the top. The track itself showcases nicely his ear for a hook, in this case a gospel sample as well as his own rapped hook, and smooth flows bouncing along the top of the beat.
He’ll be touring the Oz capitals soon, here are the dates…
Wednesday 18th December – Causeway Bar, Perth
Thursday 19th December – Alhambra Lounge, Brisbane
Friday 20th December – Bondi Beach Road Hotel, Sydney
Saturday 21st December – The Espy, Melbourne
