WATCH: Danny Brown ‘Dip’ (Sampology Video Remix)
“Dip I dip you dip, dip I dip you dip I dip”. If you read this and didn’t instantly start chanting DANNY BROWN’s ‘Dip’, you better have a damn good reason why as the drug fuelled hip-hop anthem has been drilled into our heads from its many plays on radio, iPods, online and in clubs – not to mention it’s crazy reception at Laneway this year.
As well as hearing it (taken from the mammoth that is Brown’s LP Old), we can also enjoy ‘Dip’ visually, thanks to the official clip directed by Rollo Jackson. Alongside the excerpts taken from his Paris and London performances during his 2013 European tour, the clip also documents Danny Brown walking about showing off the animated representation and effect of “mollies”. In other words, it’s all we expected it to be.
In saying that, we’ve been treated with another adaption of ‘Dip’, as one of our favourite audio/visual artists SAMPOLOGY has given us his take on the track for both our eyes and our ears. Housed by Vice’s Thump, the new clip consists of some old school Indian footage, where a man (sporting the pink and blue face of Danny Brown) and woman are seen to be frolicking about the place.
Running through an open field towards the end of the clip as the words of the chorus continue to sprawl across the screen, Sampology has managed to pair Danny Brown up with The Sound Of Music, as well as sneakily rearrange the sonic background with some of his own beats and samples.
Danny Brown’s ‘Dip’ is found on his latest LP Old that was released last October through Fool’s Gold Records. You can digitally purchase the full-length album HERE.
