MUSIC VIDEO: Hervé - Better Than A BMX

James Harvey, aka Hervé, is a producer, songwriter and DJ who goes by various names, including The Count (with Sinden), Voodoo Chilli, Speaker Junk, Action Man, Dead Soul Brothers and Young Lovers. BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe recently declared this his "hottest record in the world". A slight exaggeration perhaps, but the track itself is indubitably fantastic enough to make up for the rather lame concept behind it. The video features pro-BMXers Ben Lewis, Peter Sawyer, Paul Ryan, Lloyd Wright and Kayley Ashworth (according to Gotta Dance Dirty; I myself wouldn't know).

The song precedes Hervé's debut full length album, "Pick Me Up, Sort Me Out, Calm Me Down", out on his own label Cheap Thrills February 26th - definitely one to keep an eye out for.

Interestingly, the vocalist (is it Hervé or someone else?) sounds incredibly like none other than erstwhile BMXer Frankmusik
