Sega Bodega (aka Salvador Navarrete) recently dropped a new video for surprise single ‘Nivea‘ via Bristol’s Crazylegs on July 23. Following the February release of his Ess B EP — which also includes the excellent track ‘CC feat. Shygirl‘ — the London-based Gaswegian producer worked with filmmaker Luke Carlisle to realise ‘Nivea”s mesmerising visual accompaniment.
The topless body of performer Oliver Bizhan convulses through the constant quick cuts, and strong tonal contrasts of light and dark (with the occasional strobe) to the gasping malfunctions of a cut-up vocal sample hiccuping over the hard and heavy bass lines that Navarette, by now, is known for. That track, taking its name from the famous German skin and body care brand, is paired with the famous Cuban rum in B-side ‘Bacardi‘.
In producing music for eight years, five of those as Sega Bodega, and no doubt listening and discovering it well beyond that, we asked Navarette to share five of his favourite tracks right now, so we could hear more of where his heads at:
Lolina, ‘Miss Understood’
“So so so refreshing.”
“Definitely one of the more exhilarating tracks ive heard in i cant think how long”
“Always thought this is bold as fuck.”
“Christ, this track.”
Kai Whiston, ‘Throat Behaviour’
“This guy has a special place in my heart.”
Sega Bodega’s ‘Nivea’ single was released via Bristol’s Crazylegs on July 23, 2017.
