Eye Traveler (@eyetraveler) - "Marrakesh" (Video)
"Marrakesh" is a fresh visual offering from the instrumental album Kingdom of the Gold Tooth Nubians, a beat tape choke-full of quality grooves to transverse any cityscape from corner to corner. On Marrakesh, Eye Traveler takes traditional Middle Eastern and African melodies & rhythms and gives it that hip hop touch. Visually, Eye Traveler tapped animator Misfit Sleep to use an animation style that was in line with his production method; layering, chopping, and rearranging images in a collage style much like a beat digger hovering over a pile of records with a sampler. The result is something that is both familiar and other worldly plus rugged and elegant. Enjoy the music and stay tuned for what Eye Traveler delivers next. Eye Traveler is a Los Angeles, California native and former co-owner of streetwear and boutique Regal Tenant. When he is not hunched over his beat machine he is a seafarer of the cosmos and collector of ancient antiquities.
