The beauty of animation is that you can have all of your wildest dreams come true within the lines and colours. In the case of Warm Brew and Wiz Khalifa, I don’t doubt that they have experienced real-life parties with a similar energy to the one that kicks off the clip for “Player Way”. After all, this is a group of creators who know something about doing things their own way.
Warm Brew is a trio who have been friends since their high school days. LA-based, these guys cut their teeth in the competitive SoCal scene and have since launched their presence by touring North America supporting Dom Kennedy. “Player Way” takes all that successful and exciting energy and plays it out slow. Wiz Khalifa provides the more-than-addictive hook while Warm Brew slide around it. The melodies are simultaneously heavy and smooth.
Tristan Zammit and Alex Sarzosa directed and animated the clip, which fills an apartment with a plethora of bikini-clad women. There is steady movement from the crowd in the background, which shifts into the crowd at a race track. There’s no slowing down here. And after all that partying and racing, what else could you expect but a drive-off into the sunset scene? It’s animated heaven worthy of the chilled out track.
