“I wanted to have it my way, and it is my way,” says young producer Piotr Krygier a.k.a. Duit about his just-released, appropriately titled debut album “Now I’m Here“.
And here he is, mixing electronic music with digital r&b in 13 tracks that make a low-key soundtrack for your late night drive across a neon lighted city. He’s not alone in this mellow journey. Among half a dozen local and foreign guests on the record, you might already know acclaimed Polish star Dawid Podsiadło. Or maybe American singer Jesse Boykins III, who featured in Duit’s first single “All The People”.
The accompanying video was a result of “hundreds of kilograms of equipment, 3500 km trip, and 12 hours in the filming location,” namely at the famous marble quarry in the Italian city of Carrara. The clip was directed by Krzysztof Grajper in cooperation with an acclaimed group Lunapark (they recently worked on Mark Pritchard’s new video featuring Thom Yorke, and also directed by a Polish director Michał Marczak).
But dancer and choreographer Magdalena Fejdasz is the one you’ll pay attention to during her 4-minute choreography:
Since the whole video is a mastershot, she had to dance the whole thing perfectly from start to finish – not once, as you can guess. But Duit said that the time he’s spent working on this album himself is no less than 29 years.
Just yesterday, Duit premiered his new video “Understand in Time” featuring New York-based singer Govales and filmed in the former Institute of Power Engineering in Warsaw. You can now watch it below, and afterwards check out Duit’s new album “Now I’m Here” in its entirety on YouTube.
