New Music Video: Sanctified – Otis Mensah

OTIS MENSAH continues his run of video releases through track entitled ‘Sanctified.’

The three-and-a-half minute production featured the experimental hip-hop conscious prodigy expresses his truth through artistic self-expression, tempered by the burden of self-doubt and depression.

The young Sheffield native was previously featured with a hazy boombap effort, ‘Oh Jane’ back in February, which tackles the issue isolation after losing a love interest.

Check out his latest work; deep as ever…

New Track: Oh Jane – Otis Mensah

Following the release of mellow/melancholic track, ‘Day Dream’ back in December, OTIS MENSAH delivers another moody yet toe-curling piece, taken in shape of ‘Oh Jane.’

His collaboration with Berlin-based producer, The Intern definitely paid off as the two-and-a-half minute release oozes a hazy experimentation hip-hop and Jazz. Produced by Grit Multimedia, Otis Mensah and Raluca de Soleil,  the accompanied visual sees the Sheffield wordsmith poetically vents on the issue of depression, isolation, materialisation and love loss.

New Track: Aurora – Otis Mensah

Following his last appearance in July with single ‘Free The Slaves’ , OTIS MENSAH is here with a follow-up single entitled ‘Aurora’ – which paints the story of frustration with a system in modern-day society.

Unlike his previous release, which sports feather light boombap-esque soundscapes, ‘Aurora’ goes down the atmospheric hip-hop/rap route, where the Sheffield conscious emcee, delivered in a rapid light flow, shed light on his personal journey of self-doubt.

This guy has a lot to say…check out ‘Aurora.’
