The music video for Ragga Bomb, Skrillex‘s collaboration with British jungle group Ragga Twins, debuted on rollingstone.com last night (our time). The video was directed by SA’s own Terence Neale of Egg Films and shot in a post-apocalyptic Johannesburg and Alexandra.
The video features rival, scavenger, street crews in a burning city where fierce dance groups are preparing for an upcoming showdown. The feuding gangs eventually meet for an epic light sabre battle cheerleaded by drum majorettes and glow-in-the-dark mouthed dancers.
Ragga Bomb is off Skrillex’s new album, Recess.
