Astoria’s TReZ presents the visuals for “Crescent Moon,” which reveals the Q-Borough emcee’s evil alter ego, and the inner duality that ensues. Self directed, the visuals depict TReZ at odds with his evil reflection, which he comes to realize has been responsible for his criminal behavior, despite his inherently good nature. Conflicted, TReZ decides the only way to defeat his twin, is to put an end to his own existence. Production is supplied by DJ Skizz of WNYU’s Halftime Show (89 Tech Nine), who fuses hard drums over a haunting sample, which proves to be quite a fitting soundtrack to TREZ’s narrative.
“I’ve been struggling with my alter ego for a while. Only now I realize that this character is a perfectly natural psychological construct. We can all become subservient to our imaginary self, however we must realize that we are far more superior than this mental projection. For without our thoughts and desires to fuel this identity, it would not exist. My only problem is that sometimes, I can’t tell who’s who?” -TReZ
