[Video] Eye Traveler (@eyetraveler) – “Marrakesh” 

“Marrakesh” is a fresh visual offering from the instrumental album Kingdom of the Gold Tooth Nubians, a beat tape choke-full of quality grooves to transverse any cityscape from corner to corner.  On Marrakesh, Eye Traveler takes traditional Middle Eastern and African melodies & rhythms and gives it that hip hop touch.  Visually, Eye Traveler tapped animator Misfit Sleep to use an animation style that was in line with his production method; layering, chopping, and rearranging images in a collage style much like a beat digger hovering over a pile of records with a sampler.  The result is something that is both familiar and other worldly plus rugged and elegant.  Enjoy the music and stay tuned for what Eye Traveler delivers next.

Eye Traveler is a Los Angeles, California native and former co-owner of streetwear and boutique Regal Tenant.  When he is not hunched over his beat machine he is a seafarer of the cosmos and collector of ancient antiquities.
