London newcomer Bakar highlights himself under soft red light in his latest video for “All In”, a taste of great things in store. Cut from his forthcoming mixtape, the single assumes no pure form – mixing the tranquility of trip hop with the vocal honesty of R&B. In the video, our young artist fronts a band as they play a church, whose empty pews provide for the acoustic needs of VHS-style recording. If the band is hopping but there’s no one around to jam, did it really happen? This is why you always show up for the opener.

Bakar’s forthcoming mixtape, BADKID, is out May 25th via bash* with a release show at Camden’s Assembly Hall May 22nd. If you’re in the area, don’t miss it.
