Rag'N'Bone Man, Dabbla,

Dabbla links up with Rag’n’Bone Man for animated ‘Tweeters’ video

In Hip Hop by James Wijesinghe

The latest and perhaps final video from last year’s Death Moves album, Dabbla pulls out all the stops and enlists the South Coast’s favourite global hit maker Rag’N’Bone man for the feature. Dripping in nostalgia, the ‘Tweeters’ video shows Dabbz and Ragz getting sucked into a retro console, to land in Pac-Man, Crash Bandicoot and Mario Kart. Fuck 8-bit, this is 4K. It’s taken one man two years to craft a fully CGI universe for the animated amigos to play around in. It took so long partly because Rag’n’Bone Man got a face tat half way through the process, so everything had to be rendered again, from scratch!

In the music video from George Telis, the digital duo complete the classic games from inside the broken system. But when the games are over, live action Dabbz and Ragz are back in control of the joysticks. Their animated bedroom was tirelessly designed to be truthful to any 90s kid’s cave. Drawn from old photos and hazy memories, the room features a Walkman, trading cards, and an original Game Boy.

Dabbla’s third solo album is just around the corner, but stream Death Moves now, or cop physical copies before the holy waters run dry.
