Cleo and Donatan, Poland’s 2014 participants and emerging hip-hop powerhouses, have released a new video today. It’s called “B.I.T” and comes from their debut album “Hiper/Cimera” chronicles. “B.I.T” was not one of the original singles, but has been quite popular nevertheless. It is a stunning mix of Cleo’s vocals with Donatan’s electronic capabilities. Even Waldemar Kasta’s verse fits well in this powerful song!
The video is very different from the usual style of Cleo and Donatan’s music videos. Unlike the videos for “My Slowianie,” “Brac”, “Slavica”, and their other recent work, this music video does not focus that much on Cleo or the escapades of her accompanying Slavic girls, but rather on other people that are normally not glitzy enough for a music video. Cleo wears street apparel and she is seen singing in the street in front of a frozen scene and while in a parking garage.
The story follows a man from a cemetery. He walks around a city, observing the various people he encounters. At the same time, a young jogger is making her rounds around the city, facing not only the same scenes but also her goal for self-improvement and empowerment. This video is gritty, down-to-earth, and shows that Cleo and Donatan are not one-trick ponies, but rather flexible in their own artistry. This music video elevates “B.I.T” to a true power anthem and song about personal empowerment, and we love it!
