Bris­tol based inter­na­tion­al hip hop label The Get Down Records are pleased to announce their latest offer­ing, “Stir Crazy”, a col­lab­or­a­tion between Fin­land­’s own boom bap beat­s­mith extraordin­aire J‑Boom and South West UK hip hop crew The Scribes.

The single will be avail­able exclus­ively through The Get Down Records band­camp from Decem­ber the 11th as a digit­al down­load and a lim­ited edi­tion double A‑Side trans­par­ent 7” vinyl with second col­lab­or­a­tion track “Haunted House Party”. The video for “Stir Crazy” will then be launched a week later on Decem­ber the 18th before the single is made avail­able on all online stream­ing services/retailers from the 15th of Janu­ary.

“Stir Crazy” show­cases J‑Boom’s trade­mark MPC pro­duc­tion at it’s effort­less finest, pair­ing a haunt­ing piano loop with hard hit­ting drums to cre­ate a moody, atmo­spher­ic sound­scape fit­ting for these strange times. The incis­ive vocals, provided by The Scribes along­side dark alter-ego Mr Teatime, talk can­didly about the feel­ings of isol­a­tion and help­less­ness brought on by the vari­ous lock­downs of 2020, doc­u­ment­ing the artists cre­ation of an ima­gin­ary friend who goes on to take over his mind.

The accom­pa­ny­ing music video, with cloth­ing provided by The Scribes’ spon­sors Aekor Appar­el and Bones Cloth­ing, is a strik­ingly bleak visu­al telling the story of the track across a day in the life of The Scribes. The sin­is­ter pres­ence of Mr Teatime gives the video an edgy b‑movie hor­ror feel that per­fectly suits the vibe of the release as whole.

Togeth­er the release provides a per­fect and enter­tain­ing sum­mary of the year 2020 and the claus­tro­phobic envir­on­ment that the world has suffered through­out the year and is cer­tain to find fans both in the hip hop scene and bey­ond.
