Dancehall Upstart Alandon Shows Hometown Pride In “1980” Video

And when he says hometown, he’s talking Hartford, Connecticut.

October 16, 2015

Alandon is a dancehall youngster who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, but now is proud to call Connecticut home. That hometown pride shines through in this new video for "1980," a catchy for-the-ladies track that features buttery melodies offset by just a touch of EDM glitch.

"We shot the video in Hartford, my city," Alandon explained in an email to The FADER, adding that "what made this video so interesting are the different locations." The locations—and all those women wining. "Nuff respect to Blacka Di Danca and his whole team. The dancers added the finishing touch to the video!"
