UK house outfit Friend Within's video for 'The Renegade' showcases pantsula dance in Soweto.
Just because we've seen this before doesn't make it any less awesome. For the second notable time this year, a UK house outfit has made pantsula dancing a video shoot centerpiece. Whereas Basement Jaxx's Alexandra-shot visuals were a feel good ode to familial love (and house music), the latest from UK Ministry of Sound's Friend Within is a grittier ordeal, with friendly competition taking the place of family ties. The Soweto-set video follows Pantsula Crew, Shakers and Movers, and the 021 B Boys in a vividly shot showdown of moves. Watch the We Are Familia-produced video for "The Renegade" below.
