Bass, Drum & Bass, Electro, Electronic, Trap | Daytrip x Vybz Kartel – Up To The Crime (Video)

Posted by on January 27, 2015

When you hear a song for the first time, it’s easy to jump to conclusions about the songs meaning, or perhaps what the artist was envisioning while he or she composed it.

In music videos, like Act Natural’s for “Up To The Crime”, it’s captivating to see an entirely new spin on a previous piece of work. The video takes a viewer on a tour of London’s illegal gun trade. There are no actors used and all of the real people from where the video was shot in West London add a scary reality to the already dark story.

As the video twists and turns from alley to club, the melodic, yet powerful builds structured by traveling production duo, Daytrip, keeps your ears just as your eyes.

Hip-Hop, Reggae, Videos | Vybz Kartel & Busta Rhymes

For the avid Reggae fan, Vybz is a staple of any playlist and arguably the best at this finely tuned craft.  Although he’s had his ups and downs over the years, the Jamaican born artist is one of the hottest recording artists to come out of the country.  Oddly enough, my two Jamaican “breddas” from work turned me onto Vybz and since summer is upon us, I felt obligated to spread the good word.  The video posted above is about a year old, but too fitting for the occasion not to post.  In addition, Vybz recently linked up with Bussa Bussa for a reggae inspired hip-hop track not suitable for children under 17.  How do I say this…

“Dis is naut sometin’ Mudda shud let Dawta list’n to.  Dis dat “eat unda sheet” typa music’ bruddas be playin with pears to.  Only dem Skettle bi jookin’!”
