JONTI - ZUKI
Wednesday 22 November, 2017
"Zuki" takes a trip through the afterlife, via one woman's journey after a car accident. The protagonist weaves her way through the underworld, chasing away demons and welcoming angles through dance.
The director Andy Koeger writes, "Jonti is one of my favorite artists so I was super stoked when he expressed interest in working together on a music video. The song Zuki deals with a person coming to terms with their demons- a concept that I became totally obsessed with. For me, my demons stem from the fact that I only have a finite amount of time to live. All this is going to end, for everybody, and as scary as that is, it's also fundamentally what makes life so beautiful".
Tokorats is Jonti's third album for Stones Throw, following back-to-back releases Twirligig (2012) and Sine & Moon (2013). Recording for the album began in 2013, and after four years and hundreds of versions for each song, it will be released November 3, 2017.
Jonti grew up in South Africa, lived in Los Angeles and New York, and settled near Sydney, Australia, where Tokorats was recorded. Collaborators on the record include Gotye, Kirin J Callinan, Moses Macrae, Jo Ling, Vanessa Tammetta, Tess Nicolaou, Hodgy, and rising Australian hip-hop star Sampa The Great.
