Celebrated voiceover artist and Zambian Hip Hop pioneer Chilu Lemba releases Timing Lemba’s third full-length studio album after Sound Legacy (2005), Flowers, Needles and Drumbeats (2012) and the EP, The Romaside Sessions (2017).
The songs on Timing shine a soft spotlight onto our lives online.
The first single off the new album is DOUBLE STEP (remix). Grammy award-winning Craig Bauer, whose credits includes work with Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco, mixed Double Tap and it was mastered by Shawn Joseph, famed for working on songs for the likes of David Guetta and Black Coffee.
Double Tap looks at our desire to find meaning in our lives online, which might be elusive offline. It explores how we are guilty of getting pleasure and self-validation in the form of ‘likes’ for both joyful occasions and tragic incidents. The song features South African duo Sai Hle and Bryan the Mensah.
The video was shot on location in Johannesburg, South Africa by Fanwell Soko of Dope Arts Media, Executive Producer & Co-Director, Chilu Lemba and produced by PodHouse Pictures
