New Music Video: Tonight – Dutch Rebelle

DUTCH REBELLE is back with the first visual for ‘Tonight’, the Cartier C-produced lead
single from her new album ‘Bang Bang’ released in October. Shot by Carson Lund in Downtown Los Angeles, the video reveals the usually fierce rapper’s vulnerable side, with her walking thru the streets of Chinatown by herself reflecting on the night she’s had and what she’s about to get into.

The album received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. With additional production from Hum Beats, Milty Maose, DJ Smalls, Althasi, Duggy Flex, Newm Nera, Tedd Boyd and
Latrell James (who also lends guest verse) and Congolese MC S. Black Winner the
album shows all of Dutch’s influence and growth since her first release ‘Married to
the Music’ in 2012.

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.
