William Kouam Djoko, “Deflourished”

In a childlike animation full of vibrant colors and Savannah animals, the video for William Kouam Djoko's "Deflourished" feels like a return to storytime before bed. Paired with the distinct African beats and the lulling of the track, the animation has a sleepy quality to it—it will lull you and also stun you. Dutch house musician William Kouam Djoko had this to say about the video, “One day after the Lowlands festival in 2012, I got on my bike and while cycling to the studio, I could clearly hear African drums and rhythms. The only thing I needed to do was give-in and get lost in the moment. Two hours later it was done."
