BRASS DEPARTMENT - The Rescue Of A Birthday Party (Hip Hop Medley)

We've all experienced how awkward and cringe-worthy a lame birthday party can be. Luckily turning that around is precisely Brass Department's speciality. The Swiss band take on their next case, doing what they do best in energetic Hip Hop medley action!

This music video was filmed and edited independently by Alex Ventling, shot in the iconic streets of Basel, which this band calls home. Key images in the well-known hip hop music videos of the original songs from the medley were remade and creatively adapted to the band and storyline.
On an ultra-low budget and with the help of party-hungry friends, Brass Department's heroic and energetic performance is exactly what serves this mission as accomplished.
