Radioactive Video and Track Release
The Tour de Moon festival may be over, but its legacy is not. The Legacy Music Project is a project headed by OSOM. OSOM was brought on as artist in residence for the legacy phase of Tour de Moon and will be working on musical works from now till December.
'Radioactive' fuses elements of Jazz, Afrobeats and Hip hop to create a vibesy track for you to get into the mood. The instrumental made by Shola Dayo provides a perfect platform for OSOM with his raspy vocal signature and intellectual lyricism.
The Radioactive music video has been shot by Shot Focus in Shiny Gold - Nelly Ben Hayoun's solo show at La Gaîté Lyrique. Commissioned by Tour de Moon as a part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK. Tour de Moon is using this legacy phase to inspire the next generation of musicians, providing more opportunities for music-making for artists and enabling people to benefit from the therapeutic effects of music
