    Awate: New Single & Video 'Jewels'

    A quick-witted and crisp '70s throwback, Awate's Jewels video takes viewers on a blaxploitation-inspired escapade.

    Directed by Saoud Khalaf, the film includes dramatic martial arts, spy equipment, rolling papers used as ninja stars and a shining Black Power fist. Its themes reflect battles Awate faced whilst creating his debut 'Happiness' LP, a project he wrote whilst on bail.

    'Jewels', the first single from 'Happiness', builds on the rapper's reputation for witty, sophisticated hip hop. It featured as The Line of Best Fit's 'Song of the Day' and DLSO's 'Tracks of the Week'.
    The song has also received praise from the Independent Music Podcast, Sonic Mag and the Heart to Art Podcast, with radioplay on KISS, Pyro, Fubar and Triple J.

    Fresh from supporting Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Talib Kweli in October, Awate drops the video right before his size? Session on 9th November, at the retailer's brand new Camden store.

    With striking lyrics, psychedelic beats from producer, Turkish and visuals like these, Awate has firmly placed himself as an artist to watch for 2018 - being announced as one of The Great Escape's 'First Fifty Artists' for next year's festival.

    Shabazz Palaces: New Video 'Since C.A.Y.A.'

    Shabazz Palaces have delivered a powerful new video for 'Since C.A.Y.A.', the elastic and transportive track from the group's acclaimed 'Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star'. The new visual stars Shabazz Palaces' Palaceer Lazaro with footage shot by director Kahlil Joseph, cinematography by Marcus Reposar, and is helmed by returning collaborator Stephan Gray ('Dawn in Luxor').

    DIY calls the 'Since C.A.Y.A.' video "glitchy and disquieting... The Thundercat - featuring track gets a black and white visual to match; all crashing waves, pixelated distortion, foreboding tunnels, and writhing snakes."

    'Since C.A.Y.A.' features dazzlingly funky bass licks by the magnificent Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner and was produced by Knife Knights (aka Ishmael Butler and Erik Blood), recorded and mixed by Blood at Protect and Exalt Labs: A Black Space in Seattle.
