Dizzee's new one, and he's having a fine old time by the pool in his white suit...

It's the first video by directing duo Ryan Hope and Egoitz Audikana at new company Stamp Films - and a lot less dark than their highly atmospheric and impressive video for Newham Generals (on Dizzee's label) earlier this year. But just as sexy.

Goldie guest stars - and sounds like they had a fine old time making it too. Meanwhile, Hope Audikana are on a roll, having just shot the new vid for Skunk Anansie.

Hope Audikana on making the video for Dizzee Rascal's Holiday

"The film is definitely outside of our normal aesthetic, but its not hard to see why we took the project on really... It was an experience to say the least.

"Everyone involved played a total blinder really, we can't thank everyone enough who was involved in making it happen. Goldie was on top form camping it up at the door and cracked us up all day long.

"Whatever you've heard or read about orgies and drugs, it's all true. Particularly the story regarding our DoP Tony Miller and his gaffer Lee Parfitt and their naked tattooing exploits. Fact."
