The Blackmoth AKA Alexander Nilere is striking out on his own after a number of high profile collaborations including The Prodigy, Bjork, Nellee Hooper and Guy Sigsworth. He first came to prominence with the critically acclaimed Acacia also featuring Guy Sigsworth (who has worked with Britney Spears and Madonna amongst many others and is currently working with Alanis Morissette). Acacia was also where Imogen Heap got her first break singing backing vocals. Alexander went on to form the R’n’B/club music project Hexdragon with Nellee Hooper (Soul II Soul, Massive Attack and many others), which produced the singles “Da Boogaloo” and “Two Summers”. He is currently working on a solo record in collaboration with the producers and writers Sean McGhee, Jake Bullit and Jay Tronica. You can also look forward to the release of Mixtape Vol 1 from The Blackmoth soon.

Cocaine Psychosis from The Blackmoth on Vimeo.

Sporting a YSL black leather jellaba, The Blackmoth begins to see his evil self around his penthouse apartment in a drug haze and decides to fight his unknown enemy amidst guests at his party (and he can fight if he wants to.) Shot by Dir. Martin Weisz in Hollywood to a track co written with Guy Sigsworth with a sample from James Brown’s “Black and Proud” and a interpretation of Dillinger’s “Cocaine in my Brain” At the end one Blackmoth is thrown through a window but which one survived?
