LV and Okmalumkoolkat “Sebenza (Only Rest In December)”

The other night we were working late in the studio and this track started playing – aptly “sebenza” means “work” in Zulu. It reminded me how much I loved the “Sebenza” video when it first came out – the crisp grade and authentic locations, topped with styling that is so innate to this music movement that combines local and international electro sounds. The beats are by British producers, LV who are long time collaborators with local acts. Styled in matching bomber jackets (very Boys II Men), the crew move through the city – playful, aggressive and totally infectious. Perfectly captured by a long time follower of the movement, Chris Saunders who’s photographs and films have always been a regular on my inspiration boards – waiting for an opportunity to work with him.
