Nacional Records presents the new video for DJ Raff’s “Impala,” a collaboration between Raff and Andrés Nusser, former lead singer of Astro. The video follows a young woman’s metamorphosis as she journey[s] through the jungle and the natural world via syncopated beats and flowery lyrics. “Impala” is the second single to come out of DJ Raff’s most recent album, Movimiento.
Raff says of the video, “I really like how the actress represents the “Cat of the Mountain,” a being that symbolizes human nature – feminist and feline – echoing the lyrics that
Andrés Nusser wrote for the track.”
Based in London, DJ Raff has come a long way since his early excursions in hip-hop and B-boy culture. After years of meeting and working with likeminded musicians in his hometown Santiago, DJ Raff helped to sow the seeds of what is now considered one of the most important hip-hop scenes in Latin America. His blend of creative sampling, phat beats, keyboard arrangements, and scratching have already earned him a place amongst Latin America’s most highly-regarded DJs and music producers. More recently, Raff launched the Pirotecnia label to showcase upcoming sounds from the Chilean underground to give global exposure to the country’s burgeoning electronic music scene.
