Oddisee

Today we give you a musical genius who experiments with instruments the way an artist does paint. His recent visual to the song ‘Brea’ contains no words however the instrumentation provides its own story.  Graced by the beauty of a Ballerina in environments uncommon for a professional dancer, showing duality and two perspective’s  of the spectrum. This theme resides throughout the video with the black and white treatment shoots connecting conceptually to the song. Oddisee spends his day wandering the streets, while the elegant ballerina acts as a guardian angel watching every moment of failure and success channeling her emotion through dance. Mimicking each other  while demonstrating balance until they  eventually combining energies to duel humorously while celebrating and trading moves. Check out “Brea” below and as always…

Run!

The London-based Tanzanian artist Tiggs Da Author releases his latest uplifting energetic single “Run” featuring the magical Lady Leshurr. The 25 year old poet, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer is inspired by obscure 60s narrative film, East African Jazz and Motown. His resulting sound is very rare to say the least. In his latest track “Run” Tiggs explains escaping life’s troubles with a distinctively reminiscent style of a modern day Ray Charles. Encouraging listeners not to let life’s dramas bring you down and sometimes it’s better to just run! Tiggs is accompanied by the lovely Lady Leshurr who adds a warm vibe that makes you want to dance and sing along instantly. Already making headway this track appeared on Fifa ’16 and ITV’s 2015 Rugby World Cup trailer.  Shot in South Africa this video accents the catchy lighthearted lyrics perfectly with shots of people hanging out of cars while gusheshe drifting (a popular phrase in South African culture), dope breakdancing and choreographed dancers running throughout the fun kinetic clip. Check out the video below and as always…
