afropunk premiere: mc & beatmaker alexandre francisco diaphra’s new video – ‘nota de autor/ o bode cuspia’

June 8, 2015

Today we’re premiering the new video from Lisbon, Portugal based MC and Beatmaker Alexandre Francisco Diaphra. The 2-in1 video is for his songs ‘Nota de Autor’ and ‘O Bode Cuspia’, taken from his new album ‘Diaphra’s Blackbook Of The Beats’ – out July 6th via Mental Groove Records / Bazzerk. His camp tells us that the album is “a mix of spoken word over his beats and instrumental tracks” and that it “was created and inspired by making beats in an outdoors environment”. Check out the video below (directed by Diaphra himself and Manuel Bello Lino).
