“When The Lights Go Down” The video takes place in a cool loft apartment in the Skid Row section of Los Angeles. Based on the title alone, you know what comes next - the story is simple and time tested of what happens “When The Lights Go Down.” Folex displays admiration, adoration and affection for his costar, played by adult actress, Jojo Kiss. Her sensuality is balanced by her ability to laugh and be light hearted. The track moves to the boom bap drum line led by the vibes and cool Rhodes piano that accompany it. The sultry voice in the background in the call and response that’s played out is visualized by Rachael Madori. The song progresses and takes the viewer from the various performance scenes in the loft as well as showcasing the downtown L.A. landscape from a rooftop view.
This is the first solo release from Folex. His previous recordings come through the 90’s seminal rap group, Justice System, who was originally signed to MCA in 1994. Since then releases on Illrivermuzic, BBE and Handcuts/Universal have helped round out his commercial career. In addition to being a talented MC, Folex has has written and produced songs for television shows and series including Oprah, Animal Planet and the E! Channel to name a few.
