Breathe – [IDK] & [Kaytranada]

Kaytranada has long been one of my all-time favorite producers ever because of the groovy, easygoing nature that he is able to bring to every piece of music that he’s involved in. While I admittedly slept on IDK for brief stints throughout my writing career, when I found out that this duo was teaming up for their project Simple., I realized that this was the wake-up call that I needed in order to fully engulf myself in the world of IDK knowing that I wasn’t venturing too far outside of my preferred comfort zone because regardless of how he sounded, I knew Kaytra would kill it.

Well, within seconds I was rapidly proven wrong because IDK showed exactly how insanely adaptable and skilled he is no matter what kind of instrumental is thrown his way, and all 8 songs on this 18-minute-long project were nothing short of magnificent. Luckily, we haven’t had to wait long for a few music videos to come out in support of this effort, and his latest flick is for his record “Breathe”.

Directed by Remi Besse, we are transported to Paris where IDK sits on top of a skyscraper overlooking the city. After this cinematic opening scene, there are a collection of equally captivating moments that follow various bike riders around the city. As they pedal, it appears that their wheels lift off of the ground and they begin to float high in the sky, vibing out to the song without a care in the world.

This seems like a straight dream, but we are brought to reality by the end as one of the characters is shown totally daydreaming, closing his eyes in an attempt to zone out and live life as on top of the world as possible. I was definitely beyond grateful for how clean and photographic this video turned out, and I am not afraid to say that it’s most likely going to be one of the purest, most pleasureful visuals you’ll see all day, so give it a watch as soon as you can.
