The independent cross-over jazz artist from Berlin released his first single in two years last week. Now, he followed up with a music video, directed by Dennis Kragers. An homage to low-fi aesthetics, 80s dance moves and most of all self-love.
Danny Lito, a master of mixing styles and eras. Somewhere between nu-jazz, R’n’B and that touch of 80s pop was what we had learned from his debut EP ‘Blurry Notes‘ in 2019. And despite the German-Chilean promising new adventures on his upcoming project, we can certainly still find all of those elements in the lastest single ‘Lessons‘. It seems Danny Lito has learned quite a few of those, mostly about himself. The song is an ode to self-love and the joy and power it brings and holds.
The music video couldn’t express Lito’s aesthetic any better. Director & photographer Dennis Kragers’ decision to capture the multi-instrumentalist with a lo-fi film camera plays perfectly into the sequences. Whether it’s his daring dance moves or his smile, brighter than the reverb on his jazz chords – Danny Lito has found his look. If this is the energy we can expect in the future, we can look forward to a lot of fun. Although his previous releases have proven that it’s not at last his range of moods and styles that make him so unique.
Convinced that this joyful sign of life is to be taken as an early announcement of a full body of work, we are excited to see what’s next.
