Blackstar is a track created by London-based producer/DJ Richy Pitch featuring MC M.anifest. It develops a connection between modern electronic music and African rap playing tribute to the “Black Stars”, Ghana’s beloved soccer team. Inspired by ZX Spectrum video games, we created a music video / game showcasing the journeys of an 8-bit Hip Hop superstar.
