The League Of Extraordinary Supergrans, comprising of Blinky Bill, Mitya, and Kasiva have produced a new track ATIE. Its music video spanning for about 2.22 minutes, was directed by Andrew Mageto and Osborne. It begins by displaying stunning views of desert plains which remain a constant setting throughout the entire video.
The track hits you with a mash of traditional African drum beats, reciprocated by a white-haired, old woman beating the drums. The song is a fusion of instrumental and electric rhythm. Blinky bill’s deep voice intertwines with the music telling the listener ‘wacha ku lala, changamuka…’ (stop sleeping, be pro-active).
As the song progresses, the intensity of the beats are heightened-probably intending to hype the listener. The climactic feel of the music mirrors the visuals which take a somewhat paranormal twist, displaying a warm range of colors. Shots of fire, light and aerial views of sandy plains are seen before the camera focuses on three old women, previously captured separately; as they stride gracefully together decorated in colorful garments and face paintings.
Atie is the first song Blinky Bill has been a part of this year, and with more than 2000 views on its second day of release, it’s a promising sign of what more is to come from the artist as his listeners continue to religiously embrace his musical talent.
He couldn’t take all the credit however, Mitya, also known as Dmitry Burmistrov is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and internationally recognized beatboxer based in Russia. He has had his share of achievements, honored as an RBMA Moscow OneBeat, TED Talker, and PopTech fellow, among other things. Jackline Kasiva Mutua (Kasiva) is an internationally touring drummer and percussionist, probably the producer of the drum like beats throughout the song.
Jackline Kasiva Mutua (Kasiva) is an internationally touring drummer and percussionist, probably the producer of the drum-like beats throughout the song.
Together they have created a possible club banger that makes you want to ‘changamuka’ and hit the dance floor. However, I will say no more, you can be the judge of it yourself.
