Following the release of recent single ‘Big Belly Flow (Push It Back)’ multi-talented polymath Pauli The PSM today returns with his entrancing new track ‘Buss Case’, alongside a celestial video. The song’s intergalactic visuals were screened for the first time at the California Science Centre alongside keynote speeches from Story Musgrave and Bill Nye. The video continues along a path renowned spacehead Pauli has set himself on following a recent performance at NASA Kennedy Space Center, where Pauli was invited to perform and was welcomed as a Constellation crew-mate sharing the Earth 2068 mission.
“I believe the artist and the astronaut aren’t too dissimilar – we both leave the earth’s atmosphere, astronauts physically and artists mentally, to pursue a voyage that yields new information that can offer new truth to the world. If someone explained to me that I could be an astronaut when I was a kid, I’m quite certain that I wouldn’t be CGI-ing myself into space! I started the ‘Badman Space Program’ to provide disenfranchised kids with resources to learn about space exploration, science and to widen their horizons using music and art.”
Having spent the last few years touring as Sampha’s drummer, alongside involvement in a number of other high profile projects (Gorillaz Sound System + Africa Express), through to providing musical direction to FKA twigs’ Congregata tour and Jamie xx’s live performances of ‘Loud Places’, Pauli has built an incredible reputation as one of London’s most enigmatic and impressive young creatives. Not just content contributing to the musical zeitgeist, he has also been involved with campaigns for the likes of Adidas and Porsche as well as part of Somerset House’s ‘Return Of The Rudeboy’ exhibition and taken his cult club night ‘BackToLife’ across the US and Asia.
‘Buss Case’ is available to stream / purchase now and follows recent single ‘Big Belly Flow (Push It Back) and the ‘Secret Life of a Badman’ EP, a gorgeous and intricate four-track EP which saw the artist challenge hyper- masculinity, new-age dating, infidelity and second chances.
