Producer/singer and member of Skrillex's OWSLA collective josh pan teamed up with collaborators X&G to release an incredible video for their anthem “nowhere." Directed by Liam Underwood, the video depicts josh's voice and piano entrancing audiences whose oft-misguided pursuits of truth and virtue are ultimately met with suspicious oppression and force.
“Among the chaos of politics and war today, it may be hard to find purpose for some people. We as humans need to embrace the current state of technology and empower ourselves through freedom of speech despite government efforts to suppress us," says director Liam Underwood.
josh pan is based in NYC and has been a part of Skrillex's OWSLA collective for quite a few years. The solo act was once believed to be a team of 20 creatives, which is a testament to both his talent and ability to troll.
Speaking on the video via email, josh explained, “at times like this, we need to stick together and realize that we're all from the same place and that we all want to feel safe and loved. i've always known that music has to ability to speak a language much deeper than we know and to bring people together. this is the vision we had for ‘nowhere.’”
