Video Premiere: Sano "Contonéate"
- Words: Melkorka Licea
An affably funky groove backed by a strong four-to-the-floor beat helps generate a suave atmosphere that the video for "Contonéate"—a track from Columbian producer Sano's self-titled debut LP for Cómeme, the same one we posted as a free download back in October—does not fail to emulate. Directed by Kingababy and Julia "Yula" Kasprzak, the piece features interchanging black-and-white shots of the artist himself and extreme angular shots of dancing shadows, inspiring a spiral motion that translates through the camera's movements and the quick, synchronized editing. With accents of yellow-tinted texture and distorted images interspersed throughout Sano's new video, "Contonéate" has been given a visual treatment perfectly fitting for its lively and percussive dancefloor sounds.
