See Patoranking’s sunny video for “Available”

Directed by Clarence Peters

If we’re talking EDM energy and Afropop’s groove, South Africa’s gqom is that sound. Last year, Patoranking tapped into the South African house music to create his latest single, “Available”, spreading his range with the DJ Catzico and Vista produced beat.

Opening with panegyrics to a deity, the accompanying video for the South African inspired song appreciates different elements of South African culture from traditional religion to clothing and face painting. Patoranking himself is however not seen wearing any of these clothes or trying to be part of the ritual. It’s a lesson on appreciation without appropriating.
