One of those new projects is seeing the light of day today in the form of Blinky Bill’s 5-track We Cut Keys While You Wait EP.
The new release sees Blinky Bill experimenting with different shades of dance beats—from the hazy "Intro" and "Don't Doubt" to the more upbeat "Wacha Maneno"—and all kinds of synthesizer noises.
He’s sharing the EP along with a nightmarish music video for “Kwani Iko Nini,” which stars a fire dancer and masked hula-hooper who may or may not live in Blinky’s dreams.
“ ‘Kwani Iko Nini' means 'What's going on' in Swahili,” Blinky Bill tells Okayafrica. “This is my first music video as a solo artist. It's a dance video for one of the songs from my EP that came out today. Yay.”
“The EP is a precursor to my debut album that I'm currently working on that's slated to come out early next year. [These] were experiments that I wanted to test out the waters with.”
