Nikhil P. Yerawadekar, one of the coolest cats on the scene, and his band Low Mentality have an awesome new video out for their single Run Fast. It premiered on OkayAfrica a couple weeks ago, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post it here as well. Nikhil is a veteran of afrobeat heavyweights like Antibalas and Akoya, with appearances along the way in bands like Superhuman Happiness and Ikebe Shakedown. All that to say, Nikhil is down with some of my favorite musicians on the planet. Dig the video and cop the 7" from Ubiquity Records when it drops.
