This past weekend “Fashion Week: The Visual Album” was premiered at Room Seven, a popular local night club in Chicago. “Fashion Week” is a fusion of fashion, music, dance and art in one captivating 40-minute music video. Approaching this project as if they were designers rather than producers, Jason and Zaena have captured a collection of ten eclectic songs and seventeen videos, which serve as an introspection into various aspects of fashion culture. Experimenting with a wide range of influences, the duo feature elements from all over the dance music spectrum in each track, resulting in a musically complex and diverse compilation.
“Fashion Week: The Visual Album” starts off with the trap-influenced track “Birthday,” a stunning visual that shows a couple dancing gracefully with the sea as their backdrop. “Fashion” is the third track is a fun and energetic tune with a fitting animated music video involving dolls, shoes and percussion. “Texting You” is a dance number with catchy vocals, a funky beat and a dance-filled music video. Slowing the tempo down, “Rain On Me” is a techno-infused track, which comes with abstract video with impressive and captivating dance routines. “Models All Around Me” is a club-ready number with a video showing off the life of a superstar with photo-shoots, clubbing, and high-end fashion. The final track, “I Need Love,” accompanied by an intriguing video that follows the struggles of two lovers across the video’s duration.
“Fashion Week: The Visual Album” brims with texture and flows smoothly; tracks are outfits coming down the runway with ease. In order to compose this album, Jason Maek & Zaena interviewed designers about their process, using mood boards to pinpoint the feelings and ideas they wanted to portray with each track. We can expect big things from this dynamic duo in the near future.
