By echoing unique artists like Beck with its deadpan, somewhat odd hip hop sound – Joshua Hatkins is back with the new music video for “Time to Waste”. Shot in his home city of Portland, OR the “Time To Waste” music video is a chill affair. Despite being filmed with limited funds, viewers would never suspect it. Masterminded by Hatkins himself who commuted across “The City Of Roses” for over two weeks to find the best places to shoot, was his own stylist (buying all the major wardrobe pieces himself) and recruited his own cousin for hair and make-up, the video is in fact a kind of American struggle story where one is forced to make their own way out of nothing. Throughout the beautifully crafted video Hatkins is featured hanging out in various locations with two impressive women who are dancing their butts off. Josh and his crew post up for the camera in front of a store, on the playground, and in a nod to the Japanese countdown in the lyrics, inside of a minimalist dojo, it’s simple visuals so perfectly placed and executed.
