Digital FORT: Watch DJ Shadow’s “Rocket Fuel” come to life

Director Sam Pilling walks us through the video from behind the scenes.

March 31, 2020
Digital FORT Day 1 is now over, and this video has been removed from The FADER.

Almost 25 years on from his game-changing debut Entroducing…, DJ Shadow is still on his game. His latest album, Our Pathetic Age, blended old and new, with contributions from Nas and Ghostface Killah brushing up against verses from Wiki and Samuel T. Herring. On “Rocket Fuel,” a collaborative single with De La Soul, nobody was imagining a fight between two wound-up spacemen until director Sam Pilling and production company Pulse Productions came onboard for the video. In an exclusive clip submitted to Digital FORT, Pilling takes us behind the scenes of the “Rocket Fuel” video, from conception to shoot.
