The Prototypes ft. B3NDU - Enter The Warrior (Official Video)
"Enter The Warrior is where we are at in 2020”, explain The Prototypes, “it’s dark, aggressive but still has the ultimate dancefloor swag and B3ndu incredible vocals keep it pure party. We know many of our influences are represented in this track and when you will listen to our upcoming album, this is the first ruffneck riddim you will be graced with”. Talking about the powerful video accompanying the track, directed by Daniel Broadley (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis), the band explains“The idea was to create a fast paced motion dance piece with the amazing dancer AggieNonsizi that captured the intensity of the song whilst she moved around her native Bristol. Dan the director let her lead the video with her movements as he captured her energy without any real direction”. Talking about the collaboration writing the track with the duo B3ndu says, “it was an amazing experience, it just flowed. When I heard the instrumental for the first time, I just felt this surge of energy and felt that the lyrics and melody had to match the intensity.”
Bendu’s words are the testament to The Prototypes production skills, ‘Ten Thousand Feet & Rising’, it’s the sound of an intense studio lockdown, entirely written and composed by The Prototypes and spread over eleven tracks, it includes features by 2Shy MC, Kudu Blue, Elle Exxe and Lowesl, with Chris and Nick producing, mixing and mastering every track.

Music is not a virus! Admittedly, it contaminates you with the melody, the lyrics, but it can be bought, discovered, hummed, tickles the hollow of your ear, is released on your lips ... Think of the artists, they illuminate your daily life and feed the memory of pretty refrains which will become memories.
