Sweeter – Tessellated ft. Protoje (Music Video)

Unclassifiable Jamaican singer-songwriter-producer Tessellated has released the official video for his “Sweeter” collaboration song with contemporary reggae star Protoje. The brand new visuals premiered on Tessellated’s YouTube channel today. 

Co-directed by Gabrielle Blackwood and Tessellated himself, the video was filmed on location in Kingston, Jamaica at Comfitanya Restaurant and Lounge. Tessellated and GRAMMY-nominated RCA recording artist Protoje are seen dueling it out (musically, of course) for the attentions of a fiery barmaid at a local cantina. Some of Jamaica’s hottest young creatives like Naomi CowanZac JonesJoshua Solas, and Anna-Lisa Guthrieadd their star power with cameos. 

Incorporating Spaghetti Western-style filmmaking, the video serves to complement the Jamaican and Latin fusion of the song’s rhythm and lyrics. The track, produced by Tessellated and Circa Eleven, is characterized by a lush horn arrangement that accompanies the spitfire deejays as they trade verses over an unexpected Latin rhythm that crescendos with a Santana-esque guitar solo, served up by Phillip Myers of Circa Eleven. Renowned UK DJ Seani B initially world premiered the collaboration on his BBC Radio 1xtra just hours before the EP dropped.
