Exclusive Q&A with the director and Kojey Radical
We journey into the mind of one of the UK’s most exciting, emerging musical artists; Kojey Radical.
A true creative in every sense of the word, Kojey is, for many, becoming the voice of his generation. Transcending the limitations of one genre, the poet-turned-rapper is confidently carving out his own unique sound. This inner-city sound is pushing British music in bold new directions, uninhibited with a strong socio-political consciousness.
From the beginning of the film the tone is set, this reflective and illuminating piece allows us to have a personal moment with Kojey, his considerations, process and humour. Far from being a clichéd pop promo, this atmospheric piece reveals Kojey’s mind state, inspiration, his need for freedom, creative refuge and how elements of his music are interpreted. The film is rooted in the neighbourhood of Hoxton, East London, where Kojey grew up and this particular housing estate is where he finds a kind of solace.
The film’s underlying soundtrack is Kwame Nkrumah punctuated through a glitchy audio and visual counterpoint reflecting Kojey’s rationale and stream of thought.
