As other DJs make music videos featuring fast cars, loose women, and expensive bottle service, Kaskade and CID take a very different approach on their latest collaborative effort in the video "Us".

Set in a small village in the Philippines, the video features real-life circumstances of a Filipino family. Of modest means, the father of this small household provides for his family from his earnings as a motor-bike taxi driver.

The juxtaposition of the excess and upper echelon life that is most commonly seen as the 'DJ lifestyle' is in stark contrast with the humble lifestyle of the characters in “Us”, showing the viewer that we all have hopes and dreams, regardless of our financial situation. Most often, the things that bring us the most joy manifest themselves in the simplest ways.

See for yourself in the video below.
