The new clip from this Sydney MC ought to get you moving.

We're very pleased to be able to bring you an exclusive look the video from Dance, the latest single taken from Sydney MC Skryptcha's killer record Mindful, which was released a couple of weeks ago. The very cool clip – which was directed by John-Paul McElwee – is heartwarming, funny and very entertaining. But we'll let Skyrptcha explain the clip in his own words.

“Jonathan is a regular guy, with a regular job.  He doesn't stand for much, doesn't stand up for himself, and lets others walk all over him.

“One thing that makes him forget all that is '60s-'70s funk.  It's his escape. One day when everything seems to go wrong for him (losing his job, public humiliation etc.) something changes...  He unknowingly taps into his favourite funk artist (Hilton Denis) and starts busting moves on anyone who gets in his way.  Hilton is everything that Jonathan is not.  He is funky, strong, savvy and he can dance.  He acts on all the things that Jonathan can't. It soon dawns on Jonathan what has happened, he realises that Hilton has taught him how to dance and stand up to the people bringing him down.”
