Bristol based international hip hop label The Get Down Records are pleased to announce their latest offering, “Haunted House Party”, a collaboration between Finland’s own boom bap beatsmith extraordinaire J-Boom and South West UK hip hop crew The Scribes.
The music video for “Haunted House Party”, filmed and edited entirely during lockdown by RaSh Media, will be released on the 15th of March. The haunting visual features The Scribes and alter ego Mr Teatime throwing a house party for a selection of stuffed toys that quickly descends into chaos and debauchery.
The imagery and theming perfectly encapsulates the feelings of loneliness and isolation brought on by the continuing lockdowns of the last year.
The single is available now exclusively through The Get Down Records bandcamp store as a digital download and a limited edition double A-Side transparent 7” vinyl with second collaboration track “Stir Crazy”, the video for which was launched on December the 18th. The entire project is also available on Spotify and all good online retailers.
“Haunted House Party” rides the rollercoaster of emotions brought on by the constant uncertainty of 2020. J-Boom provides a bubbling boom bap MPC production that is hauntingly head nodding, packed with strident horns and dusty breaks.
This sets the mood perfectly for The Scribes and Mr Teatime to drop poignant bars regarding the ups and downs of being an artist during the pandemic, and the commitment needed to keep creating during these strange times. DJ Stedi provides cuts that tie the track together for that classic house party vibe.
Together with “Stir Crazy” the release provides a perfect and entertaining summary of the year 2020 and the claustrophobic environment that the world has suffered throughout the year.
