Dizzy Monks Are A New And Diverse Group Of Artists
We recently met a new music creative and we were pleasantly surprised because these guys are ahead of their time. Dizzy Monks are an eclectic music collective who invited us to their epic music video screening. We got to chat to the guys about their individual contributions to the collective as well as their music.
The Dizzy Monk Entertainment stable mainly comprises of hip hop artists as well as a talented R&B singer. The current members of the collective include Top Gogg, Ginger Trill, Dust and Young Native. They work with a host of other young and talented producers, sound engineers and other notable content creators.
DME is a fully functional studio that has a small team of in-house sound engineers, content producers and admin to fulfil projects and work on in-house operations.
The gents decided to launch their group into the mainstream in the most amazing way! The Dizzy Monks movie is a video which consists of 5 tracks which all have a different kind of vibe and sound. The video was shot by AYTCH, a relatively new production company omprising of Tamzyn Botha, Marco Filby and Jono Kryiakou.
After having worked with Tamzyn before, Dizzy Monks approached her about creating the Dizzy Monks Movie- which is essentially five videos in one!
“The Dizzy Monks video is our third video. For this video we worked with the newly formed Aytch Productions. Having worked with Tamzyn before, we knew she had a creative flair and hands-on approach, and thought she would be great for this video project. She assembled an A team and we made magic together,“ the gents say.
They each broke down the concept for their individual music videos. Check out the rest of the interview we handled with them below!
NEW VIDEO: AKA Drops Fully Monochrome Visuals For #FullyIn
Since dropping his highly anticipated third and last album, Touch My Blood, AKA has been on our lips. The album lives up to all the hype and so does the visuals that accompany it. Today, Supa Mega finally dropped the visuals for his latest single, Fully In.
What makes AKA an exceptional South African artist is not only his use of classic and nostalgic drum patterns and baselines in his music. Songs like Amen and Caiphus Song sound familiar and remind us of a time we have long forgotten. It is also not the use of vernac here and there. What makes him unique is his use of classic South African references in his rhymes.
Fully In is the 7th track to be taken off Touch My Blood and it’s the 3rd music video to come from AKA this year. The joint is about him being fully invested in himself, his music and the game. AKA is firmly on his game on this one with the chant-like hook and the on pace flow giving this song a vibrant feel.
Shot entirely in monochrome, the video is highly energetic and sees AKA engage and interact with the locals. The black and white aspect of it makes the video feel timeless yet contemporary feel.
Peep the video below!
