Video Premiere: The Busy Twist 'Friday Night'


London producers The Busy Twist have spent the past 3 years traveling back-and-forth to Ghana, working with musicians from the country on tracks that bridge their hometown's bass scene with hiplife and highlife — such as the previously featured "LDN LUANDA." Their latest single "Friday Night" features Ghanaian singers Yaga Yo and Daniel lamenting "money grabbing women and men's willingness to hand over the cash." For the video, The Busy Twist ventured the Accra streets — boombox in hand and blasting — capturing a slew of friends, school children and passers-by as they got down to their beat. Friday Night EP is out September 10 via Soundway Records.
