Brace yourselves, Diplo‘s “Blow Your Head” has exploded for a second season.
The EDM superstar teams-up with director Shane McCauley for six documentaries profiling the musicians of today. “Pure creativity, talent, and an expression of youth at a time before someone tells you ‘you can’t do that,” says McCauley of the project.
In the new run, the crew travels to South Africa, Kenya, New Orleans and other places in search of young new talent that tells the story of their environment and their world.
Episode one takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa, where the boys of Material Culture show-off their Pantsula dance skills. Episode two sees McCauley explore Cairo, Egypt with Sadat, a star of the emerging musical genre Maheraba. The third episode is set in New Orleans with a bounce artist Delish, and in the fourth, McCauley takes the fans to Kenya. The fifth sees McCauley in Durban, South Africa and the sixth is yet another New Orleans feature.
“Blow Your Head” premiered in 2012 as a web-magazine with a docuseries of short videos exploring the lesser known-artists of the world along with their culture and environment. The title comes from a Fred Wesley & The JB’s song and what started as a collaboration with Diplo is now its own vision of the young music scene worldwide.
