Premiere: Watch the intense video clip for rapper BAD MATH's new single, Dead Jokers

Faeturing Viking N3, it's also the Sydney artist's debut video.

Sydney-based alt-hip hop artist BAD MATH has unveiled a dark af new single called Dead Jokers, one that comes with a suitably intense video clip. Part Batman homage, part MF Doom tribute, it features Viking N3 on some verses, altogether combining for a sinister, strong new release: "I’m a huge fan of MF DOOM, so I was playing around with cartoon voice samples (as DOOM does) when I accidentally sampled a trumpet part of the excerpt. I started pitching the trumpets which created this bouncy tuba type of sequence, layered some drums over the top and then I had hook for Dead Jokers."

Following a recent signing with the Fight Music Record Label, the experimental and hardware-focused beatmaker looks set to go from strength to strength, since releasing his Celestial beat tape earlier this year to a heap of appraisal from all corners.
