No one makes a party track quite like Boys Noize, so it only feels appropriate that we're premiering the video for what may be his ultimate celebration turn-up track, "Birthday" (featuring Hudson Mohawke and Spank Rock).
Directed by (and starring) Beyonce/Diplo-affiliated producer @LILINTERNET, the video documents an entire night of lavish, candlelit shenanigans, lighting cigarettes with sparklers and FaceTiming faraway friends (aka NYC party staple Venus X, who's also opening for Boys Noize's NYC show), all distilled down into three minutes. Aka the ultimate visual for a song that kind of just makes you want to strip down, drunkenly take a dip and finish it all off with another mate tequila.
"Getting a cake smashed in your face isn't cool because whipped cream gets in your ear," @LILINTERNET said, explaining that part of the video was also filmed at Labanna Babalon's actual house party. "Also if you get shot in the head with a confetti cannon it HURTS, it feels like getting shot with a paintball gun at point blank range. It was a really fun day though, more fun than real birthdays, maybe I'll just shoot a music video on every birthday from now on." Cheers to that -- watch the video below.
Catch Boys Noize's live show at Studio E in NYC July 30th.
