new music video ”aLAcarte pt. 2

After a fiery, devastating initial single & video, London/Lagos artist Ekiti Sound unveils another corner of his upcoming, multi-faceted new album Drum Money (out June 23 on Crammed Discs). Shot in Paris with directors Léonard Porche & Patricia Gloom, this intriguing, surreal video shows that Ekiti Sound’s boundary-pushing world encompasses a lot more than funky neo-afrobeat!

Here’s the story:

aLAcarte pt.2 tells the story of a reclusive masterchef who, after a period away from the public, has returned with a new tasting delight. A cast of curious dinner guests arrives in a variety of fabulous entrances, akin to gourmet food served, a plank walked or a catwalk slayed. They arrive on the stroke of midnight at the iconic "
Le Bouillon" bistro in the Republique district of Paris. France.

All the while, like the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, the hostess and tanned angel hovering over 
(Ekiti Sound aka) Leke’s shoulder is the enigmatic waitress Vanessa swirling through the scenes ushering and dancing. With the submerged drums bringing us into the world as we come up for air, we go again. We're back, doing the two step shuffle in the back of the back. 

Leke is Willy Wonka welcoming in this curious melee of people as the broken beat Ekiti drum pattern beats tapdances the groove, and minor rhodes chords chorus out with a gleeful melancholy, comparable to watching that weird circus leave your town... or come back to town.  Again, the sense of urgency remains, the heavy tom hits like an elephant beating through the jungle. Somethings coming. Drums are thundering

Shot by Patricia Gloum & Léonard Porche, the music video was a testament to the power of collaboration, the thrill of improvisation, and the magic of bringing diverse personalities together. They say: “
Ekiti Sound's abstract and spatial electronic production of aLAcarte pt2 immersed us in a floating sensation making us feel as if we were hurtling through a black hole in the universe at high speed."

Patricia and Leo embarked on a surreal creative journey, fueled by their passion for the song, and inspired by the vibrant Parisian atmosphere around them.
