The UK-based Mazi Chukz just released his first video of the year for “Dem Hail” featuring Maleek Berry. The new song is filled with club-ready drums, auto-tune vocals, and synth punctuations that let “Mr. Mazi, run this party,” as the track goes.

From dabs to getting in formation, Mazi and his crew stomp around back alleys and dance in front of shipping containers to the pulsing beat of “Dem Hail.” Maleek Berry, a signee of Wizkid’s Star Boy Entertainment, handles production and even lays down his own verse on the energetic track. Peep the dance-packed video, directed by Alex Adjei, below.
