The end of 2019 saw Italian Michele Manzo release his first album on Singaporean super-underground label Darker Than Wax. The jazz and funk artist sought to widen his palette whilst remaining deep in the groove.
Everything on the album was recorded live, and this comes across particularly well on his latest single Blind, featuring Los Angeles based rapper RayClev.
Below we premiere the video, ’90s-inspired and shot in LA’s Venice Beach district by director Rick Brex. Blind is RayClev’s metaphor for not wanted to witness the violence and struggle happening around the globe, sadly all the more relevant as we begin a new year.
