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.
