check out the recently released music video for "BACK HAFFI BEND" by DANCEHALL artist HILLA BUNDEM off his YALE COURT EP.
this video was shot and edited by 8 MARKS cofounder and DEER GOD camera-dude extraordinaire LJ BEATS and marks his third published collaboration with BUNDEM as they both previously participated in the SKYE DOMINO "KONKADA" video (linked HERE).
the editing here is sick and holds its own with the bold, propulsive stabs of bass brought courtesy of BUNDEM and DJ KUSH ARORA. always interesting to see what completely conked-out visuals this pair cooks up next.
and definitely check out LJ's past work HERE.

seems only fitting that we start with LJ AVALOS to kick off our DEER GOD TEAM profiles over the coming weeks. the man is a beast and is the heart and soul of our company. not only is he a proven audio engineer and beat-maker that proved his worth at the late [the end] recording studio in greenpoint where he collaborated with THE LONDON SOULS and PHAROAHE MONCH among other notable artists, the dude is also a gifted camera-operator, having his fingerprint on virtually every DEER GOD and 8 MARKS related video. 8 MARKS is an affiliate production team consisting of LJ and his brother Antonio, who is a wizard of an editor.
here are some examples from DEER GOD:
