Video: Blanco – Anakin

Anakin is the new track from British grime artist Blanco. Unsurprising from a track named after a character from Star Wars, it’s chock full of pop culture references as he explores his upbringing.

That exploration is both lyrical in the track and physical in the video which is shot in his childhood neighbourhood. Just like Memphis, which I featured a few months ago, the track is defined by laid-back vocal delivery and a musical merge between African and Latin influences. The result is a style that is really easy to listen to and draws you in.

Anakin is another great track from a rising star of the UK scene. You can check out the video below.
