Sometimes the most incredible things happen on the fly. Dani Mari and I mashed up Tycho’s “Awake” with our release, “The Rain” and came up with the above. After hearing it, Carolina Iwanow came down to Washington D.C. with us to shoot the video and a few days later…this collaboration was born. Filmed at 18th Street Lounge, DuPont Circle, and Kitty Su in New Delhi, the video captures *some* (but not all) of the energy Jahdan Blakkamoore, Dani Mari and I have been bringing to crowds on the road while promoting Bedstuyle. Below is the Soundcloud embed, and hey – our friends and Brooklyn Radio premiered the track along with the Bedstuyle Collection with BPM Jewelry yesterday (yay!). Pretty cool, no?

Someplace Called Brooklyn released Brooklyn Shanti’s “Garden of Ghosts” video today which features songstress, Dani Mari. Brooklyn Shanti’s personal statement below:

“Garden of Ghosts” is the third single from my latest album, Bedstuyle. It features acclaimed vocalist, Dani Mari, and the song continues my thematic narrative describing the changing landscape in Bedstuy, Brooklyn. It is directed and shot by Rod Morata and myself, the video locations were in the heart of Williamsburg and at Dead Horse Bay in Brooklyn aka “Bottle Beach” (named for the fact that bottles dating back to the 1920s have been discovered in the bottle-laden landscape constituting the beach’s shoreline). Carolina Iwanow, of BPM Jewelry, created all of the jewelry and did all of the styling for the visuals, and we will be launching the “Bedstuyle” Collection through BPM Jewelry on 9/9/14 along with the album and this video.”
– Brooklyn Shanti

The video made its premier today at Pop Matters where you can check out the write up or simply have a look below.
