D Double E sets visuals to 'Flatmate' from recent album Jackuum
The walking legend, D Double E, produces strong visuals for Flatmate, taken from his most recent album Jackuum.
After the comically, incredible viral-ish sensation that was Double getting a colossal reload from just an “Ughh Ughh” adlib (Sus x Novelist, Reload King Set, Boiler Room at 17m30s). He now returns to drop the visuals for ‘Flatmate’.
Taken from Jackuum, the third song from the project is heavy, menacing and powerful. The Swifta Beater production holds thick, pounding bass that almost swallows the rest of the record. To balance this, he places dramatic trumpets and chanting choirs to usher in a sense of danger, tension and dominance. As if feeling like Double and Swifta are going to war, the beat sets a dangerous, medieval stage.
The Newham General follows suit with big, bold and lyrically combative bars. Amongst a flurry of infamous adlibs from all sides, Double spits on how he deals with booky guys - “It’s that mate. I will come to your yard, to your flat mate. Lick down you and your flatmate…”
In his frequent lowkey attire, the visuals show Double sporting all black, somewhat militant clothing, that even looks like he’s going to war. Spitting in various location, the camera focuses on the grime veteran, and a couple parkour runners.
