Oneohtrix Point Never Deconstructs Janet Jackson’s ‘Rhythm Nation’ for Fashion Show

Definitely not something Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis would ever have imagined

At their showcase during Paris Fashion Week the KENZO Fall/Winter 2016 collection was soundtracked by a remix of Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation,” commissioned of avant producer Oneohtrix Point Never. Of course “remix” is a relative term, as the free-form drone piece (with a live choir accompaniment, arranged by composer Thomas Roussel) held remarkably little resemblance to the Jam/Lewis-produced original, besides the closing “We are a part of a rhythm nation” chant.

It’s an arresting video regardless, and Dominic Sena would undoubtedly approve. Watch here, courtesy of Pitchfork.
