Video Premiere: Brey "Bengela"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
The ever-crowded London music scene is full of unusual characters, but few can match Brey when it comes to out-and-out weirdness. The Angolan-born producer will soon be releasing his proper debut, the Brasil EP, a tempo-hopping, four-song effort that's slated to drop via Serbian imprint Svetlana Industries. The vinyl won't be ready until March 19, with a digital release to follow on April 2, but in the meantime, Brey has unveiled this trippy video for lead cut "Bengela." Interspersing footage of Brey behind the decks with a trip he made to a gypsy flea market in Belgrade, the wildly edited, albeit colorfully lively, clip is an oddly perfect match for the song's shuffling rhythms and blaring melodies. (By the way, those are actual live horns on the track.) It's just one of many flavors that Brasil has to offer, but Svetlana has put together a streaming preview of the rest. It's been posted below, along with the EP artwork and tracklist.
