After just releasing the single a few days ago, Torii and Premier return to share the visual component for their new single. “Shadows Crawl” is the only track DJ Premier did not produce specifically for Torii and the Flow Riiot project.
“Making the video for “Shadows Crawl” was cool, but it was a much different process then the video for ‘1st.'” Torii explains. “While we knew what we wanted conceptually and visually, we didn’t really know the full direction. We all wanted smoke and we wanted to project images on the layer of smoke engulfing my body on the upright mattress up against the wall. Visually, the video takes you into a dream state with a touch of darkness and sweat where we convey what the inner world of my spinning mind might look like. It’s such a vulnerable place, to be verbally expressive and not know what could creep out of your subconscious.”
A Hip Hop king who has a habit of contributing and producing historic projects behind the boards, mixed with Torii Wolf’s full clip of moods, range, and vast musical talent. What’s not to like? Torii and Premier’s collaborative union bum-rushes the walls of genre, age, and expectations to let the world know there’s a Flow Riiot going on.
