Blinky Bill has shared his debut 6- track project ‘ We Cut Keys While You Wait‘. The year has seen Blinky put out more solo music in a bid to consolidate his fan base after his band, Just A Band, temporarily went on a break. The Ted fellow released the surprise EP just a few hours before he performed at the historic EA Wave and Friends concert which happened to fall on Blinky’s birthday.
The EP weaves Blinky’s trademark electro-funk, his Hip Hop influence laced with tribal beats and all that is Blinky! The EP has interesting features as well, from songbirds Maia Von Lekow, Sage to rapper Shappaman. The EP also lists fellow band member Nairobidhobi and South African artist Aero Manyelo as collaborators on the outro track ‘I should have learnt Kung Fu‘. Blinky self produced the whole project but enlisted hit maker Dillie for ‘Rise’ a collaboration with singer Sage.
