DOPE D.O.D. – TRAPAZOID (BARRICE & LONE REMIX )
Fast cuts, glitches and VHS distortions with unstoppable rhyme flow and punchlines combined with monster wobbles in the background sums up this intense production. My duties in this case included visualizing and enhancing the motion picture in with a minimal yet a grimy approach and mirrored imagery. Proud to have Dope D.O.D. filed in my client list as their new generation of mixed sounding styles gave me the ability creatively to gasp old school hip hop ideology with the fresh look of 2015.
Dope D.O.D. is a Dutch hip hop crew that puts strong vocal lines on heavy aggressive beats. The group consists of Skits Vicious & Jay Reaper.
