GENER8TION (aka Surkin) has released a new EP called The New International Sound (Part II), and the title track featuring M.I.A. debuts with a massive video. What you’re looking at is not CGI, the video features 36,000 students of the biggest fighting school for kids in China, Shaolin Tagou. Director Inigo Westmeier previously shot a documentary called “Dragon Girls”, featuring three students from the school.

The video also features graphics by designer David Rudnick, and was executive produced by Romain Gavras who helmed the controversial video for M.I.A.’s “Born Free” (watch here) and “Bad Girls” (watch here).
