Requiem is in a long distance relationship with a city. While enjoying the tropics of Darwin and its monsoonal rains the young MC reflects on the city that gave him his start in hip hop and inspired him to make music.
It’s the city of crews he grew up listening to and a constant source of inspiration.Away from music it’s a city of art, arguably the graffiti capital of Australia and one of the premier graf capitals in the world. With its vibrant laneway and coffee culture and buzzing nightlife Melbourne is the place Requiem says welcomes him back every time he visits. This is an ode to the city where they sell wax under a train station and denizens sprawl from Footscray to Brunswick.
Love Affair is the lead single from Requiem’s new EP Digital Blues which is set to drop on March 1 for free via www.requiemhiphop.com The single, like the entire release, is produced by the rising UK maestro Beat Butcha and features the vocal talents of Melbourne soul singer Joshua Tavares.
Director Andrew Wood and his team at Rockaway Creative take this audio love letter and project visuals that represent it to the fullest in the video clip. For anyone that has lived in Melbourne, just visited or has heard of it as a melting pot for culture Love Affair is sure to resonate.
