Ghana Meets UK Bass In Bryte's New 'Ice Cream' Music Video

PREMIERE: Ghanaian artist Bryte connects with Korean afrobeats dancers for this Seoul-shot video.

Accra-based vocalist Bryte goes in over some haywire electronic beat work in his new single "Ice Cream."

The new track sees Bryte linking up with frequent collaborator Mina and Tarquin for a booming production that marries his Ghanaian style with production that straddles UK bass, funky, grime and techno.

Today, we're premiering the new music video for "Ice Cream," which follows Bryte and a crew of dancers across Seoul.

"We had so much fun running around the streets of Hongdae with Korean afrobeats dancers exploring the markets and different varieties of ice cream unique to Seoul," Bryte tells OkayAfrica.

That cross-pollination of styles can be heard in Bryte's debut album, Too Good For Your Liking, which also saw him collaborate with a solid roster of producers like Gafacci, Max Le Daron, and The Busy Twist.

"Ice Cream" is the lead track from the upcoming 4-song EP, R&S presents: More Time Records Vol. 1, which is due November 29.
