animation for GRUFF Records


Created with Elkha, commisioned by Gruff Records.

This video features music by Blackmass Plastics and The Gruffians. All four tracks are mega-mixed by DJ Jerome Hill.

Animation inspired by the urban landscape of Hackney Wick. Weekend long illegal raves in derelict warehouses were commonplace. Tumbleweed rolled through dead industrial side streets. Hidden pirate sound systems ruled.

These free parties embodied the true spirit of the temporary autonomous zone. Hackney Wick and the surrounding Marshes felt like it was located the very end of London. In more ways than one.
