PUSH | Behind The Scenes With DDG + Pro Skater Neen Williams For New Interactive Music Video


Light work. That’s crazy! We’re collabing with skaters. With the creativity of music. With technology. With art. The Berrics skatepark is lit up. It’s something I’ve never seen before in my life. Today we’re at The Berrics and we’re
doing a Sony collaboration. So Neen Williams is skating to my song, Push. It’s like MESH sensors throughout the entire skatepark. And every time he goes past
the sensor something happens in the park. What’s good, how you doing man? How you doing. Neen. This about to be dope man. I always wanted to be a skateboarder. Oh yeah? Yeah, but I’m terrible. I’m trash. Can’t wait to see what you do though. Thanks man. Yeah it’s gonna be crazy. The kind of professional skater
that I am is a street skater. No helmets, no kneepads, none of that. There’s a couple of
tricks that I actually perfected here and then took them to the streets. The Berrics is Steve Berra and Eric Koston’s skate park. They create a home for skaters. On any typical day here the best
pro skateboarders in the world are here training, shooting content with us. To do something like this type of production
this is probably the only place in LA you can do it, we have really high
ceilings it’s indoor it’s a controlled environment. The ten stair is the biggest
obstacle at The Berrics. That’s gonna hurt huh? Could go either… either way, you know. Scary man. Action! What’s good it’s your boy DDG.
We’re gonna rework my song Push while Neen Williams skate around. Check it out. So this right here is a motion
control MESH sensor. It’s going to go off like this.
And it changes my track. Now the lyrics start coming in to Push It. What makes Neen perfect for this is his precision. Now you got the snares… Now he jumps on the mic to trigger the vocals. It’s like making the song.
Like I’m making the song. This is the part where he drops the track. When I made the song I didn’t expect it to be
so perfectly connected to skating. Push, you push to move a skateboard. and I even say skated in the song. Tech and skating has been working
hand in hand for the longest time. Especially in my profession.
We live off of filming each other doing tricks so we’ve been using Sony cameras forever like
VX-1000 that’s the famous skateboard camera Without tech there is no professional street skating Try a couple of heels, see where we get to. I’ll see if it comes to my feet. The risk is so much higher on something big. Knowing that 90% of the
time you’re probably gonna be falling only 10% of it is you actually riding away That was crazy. Thanks my brother. The collaboration was dope. A shoot like this expresses what Sony is. showing different types of aspects
that Sony brings together collabing with musical
artists as well as skaters as well as technology. This is pure art.

PUNKS, THE OUTLIERS OF SOCIETY, BEING PUT FRONT AND CENTER, AND CHOSEN TO BE GLORIFIED. HELLUVA WAY TO ADD YET ANOTHER DROP IN THE BUCKET TO ALL OF THE ALREADY TOO MANY EFFORTS TO TOTALLY WRECK SOCIETY AND DESTROY HUMAN CIVILIZATION AS A WHOLE! (NOTHING WRONG W/SKATERS. I SAID PUNKS. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE.)
