Get ready for summer vibes and a visual trip around the world. The weather has been hot as hell, and tonight one of Aarhus’ most blooming homeboys has dropped his newest video to accompany the heat. Earlier this year we featured erik as one of our Class Of 2016 picks, so we are honoured to exclusively premiere his newest video release via SoundOfAarhus. After spending months abroad, erik is finally ready to show the world his new video to ‘Enthusiasm’, the first track on his March debut EP produced by HansSolo and featuring both CunninLynguist and Fjer – his talented sister.
Visually, the video follows the philosophy of erik, which is also specified by the title of his debut ‘No Boundaries’ EP; that you can reach beyond the borders of the country – far beyond your own imagination and the spheres in which you let your creativity free. It is recorded in multiple locations so expect to see parts of Hollywood in LA, Brooklyn in New York City, Vilnius in Lithuania, Istanbul in Turkey, and Aarhus. In other words, if you haven’t booked a flight and made plans for a vacation abroad, do not worry. This video is in itself a visual trip around the world. I won’t describe it in more detail, as I really think you should check it out for yourself.
Currently, erik just returned from a show with Ukendt Kunstner and is now laying the foundation for his expansion of Danish hip hop music to the rest of Europe. Therefore, keep an eye out for his social media channels in order to catch his next shows, both the official and unofficial ones. According to the mastermind himself, you can also expect some exciting gigs in the fall, as well as international collaborations with i.e. a Toronto-based rapper. Check out the video for ‘Enthusiasm feat. Fjer’ below. Moreover, you can find his entire ‘No Boundaries’ album here.
