Blinky Bill Drops Creative Music Video For Single Showdown ft MVROE, Kiwango
Talking about Showdown
"I was experimenting with bass sounds in studio. I love how Busta and Missy made songs that referenced African percussion and I wanted to make something in the same spirit but with my own vibe, that bridges African drum and bass that I've heard in the countryside and how that links to electronic music. Plus I had been making a lot of music that is heavy and political lately and I wanted for this beat, to make a song to make girls/women feel good about themselves."
