Congo Blue Productions Leaves An Impression With Tate McRae

Did you catch Tate McRae performing "Slower" on Jimmy Kimmel Live? Did you notice the whopping FIFTY-SIX GLP Impression X4 Bar20 fixtures hung above the set? Well, we did... and we had to find out more about it. In this month's COOL RIG's feature we got the breakdown from LD Gideon Ayesu of Congo Blue Productions on what all was involved in bringing the performance to life.

The song begins with Tate McRae in a bedroom playing the piano, an allusion to the first viral video she ever created online. As the camera pans, she gets up from the keyboard and walks over to... well we really didn't know what, until the music kicks in.

Watch the performance below.
