New Music Video: Rapid Fire – Santi (ft. Shane Eagle & Amaarae)

Following the success of his last single ‘Freaky’, which was championed by Complex, The FADER, i-D Magazine, BBC 1Xtra, Hunger Magazine, Spotify, Apple Music, Soulection and Hype Machine, among others, exciting genre-bending rapper and vocalist SANTI returns with an exuberant music video for his brand new single titled ‘Rapid Fire’ featuring award-winning South African emcee Shane Eagle and Ghanaian alté newcomer AMAARAE.

Produced by longtime collaborator and one-quarter of Santi’s tight-knit Monster Boys crew, Genio, ‘Rapid Fire’ sees Santi, Shane Eagle and Amaarae delivering on an exciting fusion of dancehall grooves, captivating brag-raps and nostalgic R&B licks, and the accompanying music video, which was shot in South Africa and Nigeria, brings the record further to life. Directed by Santi himself, the visuals explore themes of freedom and rage, and make for gripping viewing from start to finish.

Shane Eagle sets the track off, with his absurdist charm, delicately delivered bars, and a swift rap flow, over a canoodling loop and delayed snares that expand into something beyond magical once the drums kick in. The chief conductor Santi then takes the lead, serving top shotta lyrics and toasting up the mic in a fashion that salutes the old skool era that birthed his style, and Amaarae elevates the vibe even further, as her voice purrs, while she narrates youthful takes with an old soul’s flair.

New Track: Body – Fintan

When inspiration struck FINTAN in the middle of the night, he grabbed his keyboard and head straight to the bathroom – well he didn’t want to wake up his girlfriend (ah, that’s sweet!)

That bout of inspiration turned out to be his first ever single entitled ‘Body’. Showcasing a spine-tingling overtones which glitters alongside atmospheric soundscapes, the young singer/songwriter’s marshmallow vocals float over the arrangements, captivating all those spine-tingling moments of being in love.

Speaking of his latest release, FINTAN says: “It’s easy to love somebody when everything is going well, but the true test of any relationship is how you love someone when things are tough. I wanted “Body” to be a promise to that person that no matter what, it was always gonna be love.”  (ah, that’s REALLY sweet!)

‘Body’ is the first release from his upcoming EP, ‘When We Fall’ – look out for that – but for now, check out the official music video for the pop ballad:
