feature11

Independent African artist Kage Sparks pays homage to one of his favorite groups, The Prodigy, by putting his own spin on their classic smash hit Firestarter which was first released in 1996 via XL recordings.

As a group they have inspired him with their creative vision, artistic integrity, conceptual songs and ground breaking music videos.

Firestarter 2012 is his artistic interpretation of what it means to be a Firestarter.

The treatment and creative vision of the music video was written and conceptualized by Kage Sparks and directed by French Director Wolfcut.

Firestarter 2012, was done as a tribute by Kage Sparks to The Prodigy for providing a blueprint he applies today in his own music and videos.

Some of the Highlights of the Video include:

  • Kage Sparks rapping with a poisonous snake wrapped around his neck while driving one handed through the Gateways of the Sahara.
  • Shutting down for four hours and filming on one of the largest Manganese mines in the world.
  • Kage Sparks jumping out a plane at 4,800 meters and landing by himself.
  • Using real life Yahia Bedouin nomads as extras in the video.
