double trouble: it’s a demo
A scratching DJ, two records with a breakbeat and a rocking M.C. According to Double Trouble, that’s all you ever need to make a great hip-hop track. Inspired by Kool G Rap’s demo of 1989, this Dutch hip hop duo went into the studio to produce a demo of their own. And just as the song was made with predominatly analogue studio equipment, this music video was shot in a similar way.
Shot on black & white super 8 film, this video pays homage to the rap videos of old. Following the pressing of the actual demo in a Vinyl pressing plant, the record finds the hands of a freerunner/b-boy, who then delivers it to the played, scratched and celebrated.
