Today, Sydney’s neo-soul artist imbi & West Sydney MC-producer duo Slim Set share the accompanying video for their debut collaborative DnB burner ‘Heatsink’ out now via Pointer Recordings.

Premiered via Acclaim, the video is inspired by the ‘Heatsink’ game, released alongside the single and coded by Slim Set’s Atro, in which avatars of the artists, illustrated by Alvin Ruiyuan Zhong, navigate their way from Parramatta station to Sydney’s CBD over a myriad of obstacles.

Speaking on the clip Slim Set state “Life feels like a game. We level up, complete objectives, take hits and die time and time again only to keep grinding day in and day out. ‘Heatsink’ is about pushing pause, even if your task is incomplete. Pushing through with minimal hearts is usually less than ideal, instead, we opt for an energy boost, drink break, and moment to breathe as we reassess what’s best for moving forward.”

Amongst common feelings of perpetual overwhelm and existential dread, it’s easy to forget to pause and breathe but the hard-hitting ‘Heatsink’ is the reminder we all need. With a relentlessly catchy hook and irresistible DnB production, ‘Heatsink’ offers a brief reminder of a sweaty 3:00 AM club moment. Check out the new video below.
