2013 has been a watershed year for the legendary experimental hip-hop and bass producer of Cypress Hill fame, DJ Muggs. On top of the January release latest album, Bass For Your Face via Ultra Records, in March he announced his partnership with producer Andrew Kline of L.A. hardcore band Strife and singer Brevi for his latest, quite intriguing musical project, called Cross My Heart Hope To Die (CMHHTD).
Cross My Heart Hope To Die just dropped this music video on BoingBoing for their latest cut, “Rollercoasting”. L.A. Magazine describes the clip as “Trippy, ominous, languid, cinematic. All these words have been used to describe the sound of Cross My Heart Hope To Die, a musical collaboration between DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, singer Brevi, and producer Andrew Kline. The video for “Rollercoasting,” which was shot in Tokyo by Uchujin Films, features people walking–sometimes forward, sometimes backward–into parking garages, onto the subway, in parks, in strip malls. Their faces are occasionally blurred; flashes of light sometimes interrupt their progress. And all of it is set to strange, looping, predatory beats that evoke the high-pitched haze of an altered state of mind–just before the paranoia sets in. This is not your average ride.”
Cross My Heart Hope To Die’s debut self-titled EP is available now on iTunes
