Voices of Jamaica feat. Jorja Smith - The Face
At the end of 2019, The Face travelled to Jamaica's renowned Geejam Studios with a selection of the world’s finest recording artists and producers, for a weeklong writing retreat curated by UK producer Cadenza.
Directed by Marcus McSweeney, the film stars Cadenza alongside Jorja Smith, Guilty Beatz, Dre Skull, P2J, Miraa May, Marlon Roudette, Agent Sasco, Amine, Protoje, Kelvin Krash, Kasien, Sevana, Stalk Ashley and Bella Blair.
Steeped in a rich culture of music and a way of life that lends itself to creativity like no other, Jamaica has long served as a musical retreat for artists from around the world.
This film gives us a taste of the magic of the island and shows how it inspires the creativity and flow of this talented group of musicians while they make music and create some of the brand new unreleased tracks that you are about to hear.
Recorded at Geejam Studios, Jamaica.
Thanks to the Jamaica Tourist Board

Dua Lipa - The Face Magazine Cover
A platinum debut album, constant touring, collaborations with Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson and Diplo, three BRITs, two Grammys, and streaming figures so massive they simply don't sound like real numbers. We go down the rabbit hole with British-Albanian superstar Dua Lipa on the cusp of album two.

Sending For Home - Skrill
Skrill asked us to create a film around the idea of sending money back home. We made a film about Nikky and his Barbershop in Camberwell “Slick Rick” where he has created an extraordinary place to hang out. Every Friday night people come from all over London and the surrounds to dance to their favourite tracks and to watch other people dance. It’s more than a shop.
Featuring Nikky Okyere, Mr. Eazi and French Nana.
