With his highly-anticipated debut album and feature film Duszt landing on May 1, emerging rapper Jody Bigfoot has returned with the new video for his latest single ‘Hands’.
Following up the previously shared pair of trailers for his upcoming film, with production supplied by Tandaro, ‘Hands’ sees the artist deliver more of his distinct, vibrant aesthetic. With his driven flow running effortlessly over the top of dark and pulsing production, we are now beginning to see the full picture of what to expect on his forthcoming projects.
Born at home to a pair of socialist vegetarians, Jody Bigfoot has always stood out from the crowd, standing at two meters tall with size 15 shoes, this is both literal and figurative!
After playing a leading role in the local anti-Iraq-war movement and attending the largest protest in history to no avail, he became disillusioned with conventional forms of protest. Equally fed up with mainstream education and English hedonism, he spent most of his twenties traveling and working in any country he could get a visa, doing everything from packing cow hides in Australia to climbing and dismantling 250 foot trees in ancient Canadian rainforest.
Bigfoot experienced a spiritual epiphany listening to New Zealand reggae and Maori roots band Trinity Roots, which convinced him that the way forward was to spread this positivity and emotion through music. That seminal moment provided the inspiration behind the moniker of Trinity Lo Fi, a group he spearheaded alongside Zico MC spawning five albums and five EPs in a prodigious five year stint.
He was drawn to Japan as he has always loved Japanese cinematography so wanted to film there with his new camera. He spent a year there, between 2011 and 2012, before later returning in autumn 2018 to film the feature-length music video for his twelve-track solo LP. Music and film combined, this would become his debut solo project Duszt.
