Riding high on a “career defining” moment that saw Australian DJ/producer Hook N Sling join Arty and Destructo in the Insomniac / Interscope Records family earlier this year, HNS is releasing an official music video for “Break Yourself.” Out last month, Hook’s latest original single sees him team up with electro-rap lords Far East Movement for the unexpected and infectious dancefloor thumper.
Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada and Nelson De Castro, the video for “Break Yourself” spins a tantalizing visual counterpart to the viral club single that will really get viewers moving. This team up of directors is truly a match made in cinematic heaven. Estrada, a Latin Grammy award winner, and Castro boast a healthy roster of music video work for esteemed artists including OK GO, Digitalism, Goo Goo Dolls and more. For “Break Yourself” the auteurs dream up a whirlwind adventure with Hook N Sling manning the party bus at the helm.
