Richie Jackson Video

Richie Jackson: Down The Road I Go

French Band C2C hires Richie Jackson for their new clip...

Another band from France is making a big splash before the summer. The C2C Band from Nantes (France), four times DMC World Team champions just released their newest video for their song "Down The Road" excerpt from their latest EP of the same title you can find on iTunes. A superb achievement led by Thomas Tyman, produced by Wanda and where we find the guest skater Richie Jackson!

The French quartet went from Nantes to California to shoot the video for her new single "Down The Road", second extract of an eponymous EP launched on May 10. Available on download platforms, this mini-album contains six tracks including "Fuya", released last December as a radio. This clip is bringing good news for the C2C group from Mercury label, who wants to make a name for itself.

For this new video, the group has not only followed the US trend but also managed to get creative thinking by inviting the Australian skateboarder whizz kid Richie Jackson. In the middle of sunny streets, something is not clicking: people get caught up, disappear, like tires and dolls, while the sun sets in... Eventually, all come alive prisoners inside a skateboard.

For many this video will be the first encounter with C2C, but the group had already achieved some notoriety, particularly among their peers. C2C has repeatedly won the famous competition of DMC (Disco Mix Club). From 2003 to 2006, C2C was placed on top of the podium by becoming quadruple world champion in the art of turntablism (art of creating music from turntables and vinyl records). More recently, the Norwegian singer Bernhoft asked C2C to help with the remix his remake song "Shout" from Tears For Fears.
