Dave: “Verdansk” - 5 mins 19s

UK rapper Dave (aka David Orobosa Omoregie) brings a passion for video games to a whole new level in latest track 'Verdansk'. Named after a battle map in Activision's Call of Duty: Warzone, the artist raps about girls and luxury cars but seems mainly focused on logging online hours with his mates. "Man try beef with my dargy/ Warzone ting how I come third party."

The accompanying promo embraces the game's combat-focused aesthetic in cinematic style, as director Nathan James Tettey situates Dave at the heart of an extraction mission. The evolving action creates a feeling of travelling through the different levels of a video game, with POV shots and slick SFX drawing viewers further into the digital drama.
