now team up with Cameroonian artist Tasa for its latest release - a powerful theme song titled "Cookie Crumbles" for its upcoming movie of the same name, which will be released by the label's movie production unit. Currently shooting in Cameroon, the movie is described by Don Julio
Bats as having the feel of a James
Bond movie in the tropics. Infused with infectious melodies, hypnotic beats and lush vocals by Tasa, the theme song is an amapiano-EDM fusion with Afrobeats undertones aimed at giving listeners a taste of what it would be like if a James
Bond theme song was produced as African urban music.
Elaborating further, Don Julio
Bats says, "This is what James
Bond would sound like if 007 was an African secret agent. I asked my beatmaker to produce me beats that fused a James
Bond-type theme with modern African beats. Our goal was to deliver what it would sound like if the James
Bond franchise ever reached out to us to deliver a song for one of their productions. And yes, I personally wanted Idris Elba to hear the song and say to himself: 'I can be James
Bond 007!'" "Cookie Crumbles" is available to buy/stream now on all platforms: https://ffm.to/cookiecrumbles.
