Featured in the ‘Double Life’ music video are competitive ballroom dancers Nikolas Constantine and Kateryna Osminina, the latter a refugee from war torn Ukrain.
The viewer is instantly drawn into the ‘Double Live’ video, captivated from beginning to end by Imgonefishings triumphant lyrics, the steaming jazz saxophone, the sultry ballroom dance moves all captured in a multicolored dream in sharp dark future psychedelic imagery that has become a calling card of filmmaker Carlos A. Hurtado.
The young San Diego rapper who is a fan of Hurtado’s films states, “I was really impressed by Carlos’ past works, some featuring bolero dancers, some with dreamy water choreography, and even his animated stuff, they all have this beautiful blend of shadows and colors.” Say’s Imgonefishing, “I told Carlos I wanted it all, everything he’s done in the past, even the stuff he’s planning on doing, the ideas he’s shared with me about his future projects, I told him I wanted it all condense into my music video. That’s a huge request, but he nailed it!”
Hurtado comments on the ease of making the music video. “When I heard the lyrics, they were so relatable, yet boastful, as if they could be stated looking in the mirror as a morning affirmation, or proudly shouted from the stage in front of a packed arena, I just envisioned a faceless Imgonefishing in the shadows so the viewer or listener could place their self in his spotlight.’ Hurtado remarks about Constantine’s and Osminina’s dancing, “when I heard that sax, I instantly envisioned some sexy ballroom dancers bringing the video alive.”
A rising artist from San Diego, Imgonefishing was surrounded by music from an early age. He was exposed to a wide range of genres, from hip-hop to rock, and he quickly fell in love with the power of music to tell stories and evoke emotions. As he got older, Imgonefishing began to experiment with different sounds and styles, blending elements of his favorite artists, including Xavier Wulf, XXXTentacion, Mac Miller, and Lil Peep, to create something unique and entirely his own. He drew inspiration from the world around him, crafting lyrics that spoke to the struggles and triumphs of everyday life. With his eclectic sound, and infectious energy, he has captivated audiences both online and in person. And with his relatable lyrics and catchy melodies he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
