N’toko words on MIND BUSINESS
This song did quite a bit of traveling. The video was recorded by Matt Schley in Tokyo last summer (it was originally meant to be part of a different project, but worked much better with Mind Business), the beat was made by Swiss producer Beckoning and the vocals were recorded in Ljubljana. The final result is one of the darkest, dirtiest pieces of music I’ve done in a while. Beckoning (one half of electro duo Volatile with whom I recorded the song Snob a while back) does filthy old school boom-bap beats that are awesome to rap to, and I feel that Matt really did the song justice with the video’s menacing, post-apocalyptic setting. The concept was to film a trailer to an imaginary sci-fi flick with me and mystery girl Kaki playing the main roles.
