12th Planet has enlisted the directorial talents of Johnson Diep for the visual treatment of ‘Let Me Help You ft. Taylr Renee’. The single was originally featured on the American-dubstep don’s December 2016 EP ‘Gully Squad’.
Diep’s cinematic affair encapsulates the frantic shifts of 12th’s production style.
“I'm super stoked on how Johnson's vision for the video came to life,” offers 12th Planet about the visual work. “It's an ode to the old dance music videos with talented freestylers and poppers. When I was younger, I would go to raves and see loads of dance cyphers in the back of the rooms. Now, I see mostly people with their phone cameras out with synchronized head banging and jumping up and down. This video portrays individuality in that regard, and I hope that translates and influences people to be themselves and that it's ok to be different.”
12th Planet even makes a cameo. Catch him at the 3:46 mark without his customary ball cap.
Catch 12th Planet live 6th July at Exchange LA as part of the Best of DJ Mag North America showcase. Chris Lake and Blaise James will also be taking over the decks at 618 Spring Street in Los Angeles, CA. Secure your tickets here.
