In a recently released interview with All Hip Hop, the West African wordsmith details what inspired him to create the track: 
“My music changes the room, that’s what it’s about. Same way you can be in a room full of gangsters, but you put on Michael Jackson, it’s hard for them not to move. Put on Prince, it’s hard for them not to move. There are certain artists, that when the music is played — Afrobeat is one of those spaces where as soon as that music comes on, it’s hard for you not to move. The atmosphere changes, so this is a song that changes the atmosphere. Makes you feel good.”

Following the launch of his restaurant Romeo’s Vegan Burgers, the Sierra Leonean native credits his time spent visiting monks at Buddhist Temples in China‘s Anhui Province for the new found ability to properly obtain a new level of spirituality through ancient meditation techniques. These practices have aided him tremendously in not only further developing his artistry, but jump started his journey into veganism; spawning the birth of his vegan burger brand after COVID-19 put his music career on hold.

Born Monty Faulkner in the Carolina city of RaleighTigo B is an entertainer turned entrepreneur whose notable tracks include “Vibes” and “69” with frequent collaborator Ricco Barrino as well as “Where You Come From” featuring DJ Luke Nasty and Tigo discovered his musical gift at the age of 20 during an impromptu studio session where friends encouraged him to get on the mic. Since then, he has dedicated his life to honing in on his craft and developing as a well rounded artist; spawning the release of projects ‘Return of The Artist‘ (2013), ‘Rise: A Gemini Story‘ (2014), ‘The Preylude‘ EP (2015), ‘Playa Trap‘ (2016), and ‘Better of Both Worlds‘ (2019). 

“Pops in particular, literally listened to everything. I’m talking from soca to reggae to classical to R&B,” Tigo states in a previous interview. Though an untrained ear may not be able to hear all the influences that inspire the music he creates, he humorously adds that “…everything but rock and country was played in my house.” His commitment to music these past few years, has awarded him the opportunity to share stages with the likes of JeezyYoung DolphWaleMoneybagg Yo, and the City Girls. With more than 2M+ collective views on YouTube and 5M+ streams on SpotifyTigo B is just getting started.

BermudaCal’s Music Video Mastery takes centerstage leading up to new album “The Divinity of Doubt”

Published

on

By

In a world where the essence of urban culture is often captured within the constraints of a stereotypical narrative, BermudaCal stands out as the true architect of soundscapes that redefine experimental rap. The recent release of his music videos “Promise Me You’ll Be Alright,” “Pulse,” “Silver Lining,” and “GOD” is more than an introduction to his album The Divinity of Doubt; it is an invitation to an immersive experience of a complex soul. BermudaCal bares his spirituality, layering his raps with varied vocal tones to convey a complex relationship with faith and the often-frustrating pursuit of understanding mental health in a world that can feel indifferent.

Directed by the unseen lens of New York’s shadows, “Promise Me You’ll Be Alright” captures the essence of the city’s pulsating contradiction. Filmed in Brooklyn’s chilling December air, the music video offers a backdrop of engaging beats and melancholy piano melodies that juxtapose the dark lyrical themes portrayed. “Pulse” is an embodiment of life lived out loud, set against the electrifying backdrop of Times Square. BermudaCal channels the ceaseless energy of the city that never sleeps, merging genres and unraveling the cadence of urban nights. The visuals are vibrant and frenetic, mirroring the relentless rhythm of the iconic locale, making every viewer feel the potent buzz of the metropolitan pulse.

Set amidst the tranquility of Central Park, “Silver Lining” explores the yearning for unwavering love and devotion. Through the fusion of evocative jazz hooks and the modern cadences of hip-hop, BermudaCal creates a track teeming with poignant questioning and rich metaphors, crowned with a haunting saxophone solo. With “GOD,” BermudaCal returns to his roots in Bermuda. The intimacy of this track is amplified by the personal visuals, shot by Edd Roberts and PIGG FILMS, which juxtapose the grandeur of natural landscapes with the internal struggle of seeking divine answers.

BermudaCal’s music genius doesn’t merely operate within the music but within the fabric of the urban tapestry, where each video becomes a time capsule for the contemporary state of being.
