New “trap-vant garde” rap from Kassa Overall, who we first met years ago as a drummer on several projects by singer-songwriter Tecla Esposito. These days, Overall is best known as a member of the rap duo Peaceful Solutions with Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist). He currently performs nightly as DJ/hype man with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. As a drummer, he performs regularly with Theo Croker, and co-produced Croker’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Escape Velocity. For the past three years, Kassa has toured with legendary jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater.
In addition to the music, what’s cool about this video is that you can literally look around it. It’s created via 3D stereoscopic virtual reality filmmaking, which means you can drag your mouse over it to change the point of view. Give it a try.
In the meantime, it’s great to see artists embracing new technology as a service and aid to their creations.
