Interview Meikee Magnetic
You have an exciting New Years Eve live performance opening for Bonobo at The Midway in San Francisco happening at 10pm. What are the highlights that you in store for the audience?
We’re debuting brand new songs that have never been performed live before, live vocals, percussion and surprise guests. After being in the studio crafting and developing our sound to be a multi-dimensional experience for our fans, it’s really nice to bring the music to life in a live setting with instrumentation, lighting and visuals.
Gianina, tell us about your directing process for the video?
Listening to the song for the 1st time inspired a lot of creative visuals taking me to a different world and I wanted to bring that to life. We got the opportunity to film at the House of Kaya in LA, working with an incredible creative crew and my director of photography Amanda Lee. The 1st half of the video was initially suppose to be shot in a forest and after a spontaneous change of events the House of Kaya opened theirs doors to our project helping us take it to the next level. During the editing process I was able to play with a lot of creative cuts inspired by the percussion.
Roxy, we love the look and styling, how did you go about choosing the costumes?
I wanted to help Bosa develop their image and create an iconic look. My vision for them was these striking silhouettes in a mystical astral plane. We are developing a visual style that tells a story, and represents a larger movement.
After NYE, what does 2020 have in store for Bosa?
January 15th-ish we’re releasing a collaboration song ‘Walking in the Stars’ that we made with David Starfire and Ahee. Another highlight is we’re featuring Sunev’s vocals which is a first for the project but not the last. Mid spring we have a new album that we’re releasing with Gravitas Recordings. We did a remix for Desert Dwellers and just finished up a collab with Beats Antique.
