West Coast trio Warm Brew are back with a new video from their incredibly fresh Ghetto Beach Boyz LP. Shot in West Los Angeles, the Topshelf Junior-directed clip for “A1Day1” finds Ray Wright, Manu Li and Serk Spliff (and Alexander Spit) putting their spin on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet (the one with Leonardo DiCaprio).
“On a lonely night of channel searching we stumbled on Baz Luhrmann’s rendition of Romeo and Juliet. Outside of the story, the way it was filmed was intriguing, almost like a dream sequence. We decided to put our own little spin on it,” Serk Spliff told SuspendMag. “Keep that forbidden fruit theme to it, but have it be more about your dedication and loyalty to those closest to you. Alexander Spit was first in mind when it came to down to “casting;” he looks like the leader of some sort of counterculture already and in many ways he is. Arnelle [Lozada] who plays the sharpest part of the love triangle did a great job riling people up to really sell that rivalry. In terms of the aesthetic, we wanted people to see the contrast in the two sides rather than go in deep in character development. It’s easy to see through the outfits we were wearing that the two sides were rivals.”
