Tune in and turn up

The new video from Congo-born, Belgium-based rapper Baloji is out now ahead of his forthcoming EP 64 Bits and a Malachite, set to be released in October. “Capture” is one of the first tracks off the release and features rising South African star Petite Noir and Kinshasa-based singer Muanza. His style mixes Congolese soukous with rap and a touch of American soul, funk and R&B.

Written and produced alongside Metronomy’s Olu, the video is set in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Shot and created by the young rapper himself, it’s a moving portrayal and celebration of Baloji’s birthplace.

64 Bits and a Malachite will be launching alongside Baloji’s malachite eyewear collection created in collaboration with Komono.
