Sharam could be the next Sergio Leone. Well, maybe. As if producing and DJing around the world wasn't enough to keep him busy, he elected to direct the video for his last track. A film obsessive, he chose the genre of the Spaghetti Western for the clip to 'She Came Along', his track featuring Kanye West's current protégé Kid Cudi. "It raised my level of respect for the medium a lot," he jokes. "I'm so much more respectful now. There was a lot of work, and it's not easy. The video is very much a homage to Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone, the way they made and scored their movies. I'm a huge movie buff." Like Sharam needs more strings to his bow. 'Get Wild', his album released last month in most of Europe, features appearances from an eclectic group of collaborators, from Cudi to former Motley Crue bad boy Tommy Lee, Public Enemy's Chuck D, Daniel Bedingfield and P Diddy. He has almost another whole album's worth of material in the can too, so we can expect to see some of that in the new year.
