Bankrobber Remixes Songs from the Past to Call Action on the Future



Sister agency to Madwell, Bankrobber supports the Black Lives Matter movement with timely remixes

Bankrobber Remixes Songs from the Past to Call Action on the Future

With the state of the nation being as it is, experiential agency Bankrobber (a sister company of Brooklyn-based creative agency Madwell), wanted to support the Black Lives Matter movement with a call-to-action. The team created remixes of two songs from another time that draw sad, yet real parallels to the current day:

  • The Temptations ‘Ball of Confusion’, a song that shouldn’t be so timely 50 years later: The Temptations | Ball of Confusion | A Bankrobber Remix (Trigger Warning: Police violence)

  • Junior Byles reggae classic, ‘Fade Away’ reminding us that those bereft of humanity and love will eventually do just that:  Junior Byles | Fade Away | A Bankrobber Remix 

The two songs balance both tension and resolution and were debuted to the whole team last Friday as the introduction to their company-wide observation of Juneteenth. In order to execute this project, the Bankrobber team called upon Sajjad Musa, a Brooklyn-based visual artist who is largely focused on social commentary, to design the cover art. The prints are being sold and 100% of the profits are being donated to The National Bail Fund.
