"Alternative R&B must die" FKA Twigs speaks out on racism in the music industry through genre-specifying:

"When I first released music and no one knew what I looked like, I would read comments like: ‘I’ve never heard anything like this before, it’s not in a genre,’” she continued. “And then my picture came out six months later, now she’s an R&B singer. I share certain sonic threads with classical music; my song “Preface” is like a hymn. So let’s talk about that. If I was white and blonde and said I went to church all the time, you’d be talking about the ‘choral aspect’. But you’re not talking about that because I’m a mixed-race girl from south London."



Wow. Speak on it god!!!

Chasing Musical Moments with Director @nabildo

For more snapshots from Nabil’s journeys, follow @nabildo on Instagram. To follow the 2014 MTV Music Video Awards—where Nabil’s video for “All Of Me” has been nominated—browse the #VMA hashtag.

"When I hear music I like, my mind turns into a pinball machine," says Nabil Elderkin (@nabildo). “Music, traveling and even some self-doubt are probably what drive me the most creatively.”

Though Nabil is perhaps best known as a video director—his recent work includes John Legend’s “All Of Me" and Beats by Dr. Dre’s "The Game Before The Game"—Nabil also self-identifies as a photographer and “amateur professional.”

"My film work can be pretty dark," he admits. "I like to think I am a little more approachable and humorous on Instagram."

His account reflects this playful, almost music-video-like sensibility, and often feels like a scrapbook of vibrant street photography from his international travels.

"I chase birds all over the world with my iPhone,” jokes Nabil. "When I get off a plane in a new place, my lungs fill with a new air."

Oooo thx Instagram
