Premiered on the website of L’Espresso, one of Italy’s most popular newspapers, the brand new video to Italo-Moroccan musician Momo Said‘s track “Basement” has landed! “Basement” is a blaxploitation-style soul-funk number where Said both raps and sings, and is taken from his debut album “Break The Rules“.
In the video directed by Corrado Magalotti, views of the past are projected onto an old movie screen. Despite being blurred, the images are significant, from a time perhaps not that distant. The cyclical nature of human affairs, history that repeats itself in a duality that is eternal and illusory, the struggle between good and evil, war and peace, love and hate—all intermingled and mixed through dance. The primordial essence of artistic expression reemerges from the early 20th-century cinematography of Mellier and his colleagues, as if to remind us of the fundamental importance of art, irrespective of era or technology.
“Break The Rules” is a breezy cocktail of funk, soul, disco, latin & jazz and is available on LP and Digital via Tam Tam Studio Recordings. According to famed UK magazine Blues & Soul you can “rest assured you are in for a great ride with this fresh sounding, string laden, soul stirring album… A real touch of class!”. And we quite agree!
