Pharrell Williams & Gesaffelstein Premiere Video For “Blast Off”
Last month, Pharrell and DJ Gesaffelstein quietly dropped off their “Blast Off” collaboration, with Pharrell’s appearance gifting the French producer with a solid co-sign in the process ahead of Gesaffelstein’s solid Hyperion album, which featured additional looks from The Weekend and HAIM among others.
Shortly after his set at Coachella, Gesaffelstein capitalized on the momentum and decided to dish out the new music video for the collaboration. Directed by Warren Fu, the new flick is a balancing act of opposites light and dark and retro and futuristic elements bounce off one another, underscoring the infectious beauty of “Blast Off” as P repeats, “When I’m looking in your face/You give me faith/I feel this faith/This must be fate.”
