Rudimental’s New Clip On The Global Refugee Crisis Is Incredible!

Rudimental – I Will For Love ft. Will Heard

I love Rudimental. I yell about how dope they are every chance I get. But this video really does blow the rest of their work away. As the immigration debate in America reaches white hot levels of racism & hatred, and the Syrian refugee crisis floods Europe with people just trying to escape Assad the madman, Rudimental has done it again. I don’t usually get into politics on this blog, but this is one of the most compelling 5 minutes of cinematic music I’ve seen in a very long time.

There are no words to describe the humanizing force that this video could have if it was seen by the greater world. Please, take the time to watch it and to remember that the people you spit on & call illegal immigrants are running for their lives sometimes. Other times they’re simply trying to build a better life for their families. I Will For Love features the impressive vocal work of Will Heard and the video is a heart-wrenching portrayal of the dangerous journey across the Mexican-American border. See everyone at Webster Hall on the 29th for their latest live show.

Hey Trump, this family full of rapists & drug dealers too?

Damascus Still Gets Down: A Dozen clubs remain open in the Syrian capital.

While Assad terrorizes the Syrian people, according to the Daily Mail, there are about a dozen clubs still operating in Damascus. The clubgoers hit up one such establishment in the neighborhood of Shaalan, where they dance, drink and listen to music that’s generally pretty kind to al-Assad and his military. Throwing parties must get pretty tough, especially in a capital under attack, so I can imagine it’s necessary to maintain a pretty non-rebellious stance. Apparently there are clubs where there is still champagne, and with one mentioned closing at 2 AM, that’s officially better than last call in a lot of American cities.

I’ll let the rest of the article do the talking, but it’s good to know people are still dancing in the ancient city. I hope they find peaceful streets to dance in again soon.
