Davonte Jolly Talks the Making of ‘GODSPEED’

GODSPEED, the new full-length from Davonte Jolly is dropping tomorrow. The video features an insane roster of amazing skateboarders including Ishod Wair, Zion Wright, Alex Midler, Robert Neal, and others.

No, we don’t have an early at the footage. But, we did come across a rad feature interview with Jolly. He sat down to chat with Tony Hufnagel, while Atiba provided a handful of photos to go along with the article.

You can read the full interview with Jolly here. We’ve also included some highlights below along with a quick clip from ‘GODSPEED’ featuring Ishod and Zion.

What was probably your favorite place you guys traveled to?
Ooh, Damn, that’s a good one. I want to say Copenhagen. Copenhagen was really sick. It was just me, Rob, and Zach (Saraceno). We had our own house, kind of a little away from everything. We just had to take the train to meet up with everyone. But that was so refreshing, going to the train, seeing everyone because I felt like we really got to see the city, not just being in the heart of it, everyone was nice.

Who has the last part in the video?
Alex (Midler).

How did you come up with the name?
Originally, there’s this Frank Ocean song called Godspeed. I was like, damn, this song would be like fire for an intro. Because the song has such a dramatic build-up. And then I was like, wait, what the fuck? This name just looks fire, like Godspeed would be a fire name. So, looked it up in the car and it meant to wish you well on your journey. And I was like, wow, I love that definition, especially for this project. So yeah, that’s how I picked the name.
