Joakim turned 25 this weekend, and to celebrate, he gave us all a gift: a unique look into his day-today via the “This is My Life” video. The video chronicles the French producer’s life through a series of Instagram videos played from his own laptop. Videos flash by as error messages, emails, and update alerts clutter his screen, creating memorizing chaos. A robotic voice narrates the captions of the videos in a detached monotone. When the vocals come in, the video morphs into a montage of Joakim’s face superimposed onto the faces of several movie characters, blending fantasy with true-life events. Joakim is also releasing a This Is My Life EP, which includes a remix by Kindness. The remix adds a funky disco beat to the electronic track, and makes use of subtle but persistent beats to build tension in the song. Watch and listen below.
