Baile funk duo BlckBx is beyond thrilled to be releasing their music video for “SLOMO.” The Los Angeles based, internationally raised duo is bringing the sounds and culture of Baile Funk to the States. The track draws influence from a native Brazilian dance culture while simultaneously incorporating aspects of 90’s R&B. The duo lives by “music-meets-mantra,” intersecting their lifestyles, influences, and cultures to shape their music.
Citizens of the world, Maite and Richard’s diverse backgrounds and influences is clearly displayed in their music. “SLOMO” is their attempt at a modern visualization of the Brazilian ideology of music and the notion of standing out from the crowd, loving yourself, and finding someone else crazy enough to stand out and love themselves with you. Not necessarily a true love, but also not necessarily a platonic love; that interpretation is up to you. That artistic ambiguity is apparent in the music video that finds the two at the beach all day, singing, exploring, and just being.
