incredible animated hiphop music video for 66notes “Empathy”

New Bones Culture collaborator & graphic artist, Hive Drive aka @unimpressed.media created this incredible music video for the latest Beastcoast boombap single from Bones Culture- 66notes “Empathy”

“They (Notes & Oax) brought the concept of using an avatar for 66notes, in the form of a hooded sweatshirt with some type of anamorphic face emoting for him. And this video is the product of that. I think the lone character shrouded in this hoodie represents the loneliness we all feel and that works really cohesively with the lyrical content.


I also wanted to include graphics that give a comic book type of feel. I think I’m today’s society the ability to empathize with another human is rare enough to be a superpower.”

Hive Driver (a mixed media artist- photographer, digital artist, painter) is, “just a guy who wants to put as much creativity out in the ether as possible.” look for music collaborations with V1TAL and DHXQHU in 2021. Hive Drive also designed the cover for the last single featuring 66notes from Jefferson Ambrose “Give it Away”. He also designed the recent merch line in new Bones Culture store!

66notes and BenOaks have been creating music together for close to 10 years (though they have still yet to meet in person): starting with their triphop project the Numinous (along with Devy Dev Dev released a full length album and an EP) and continuing with their soon to be released, side-project D3DM3N.

Gentle Jones x BenOaks

Delaware’s own versatile artist (and OG skateboarder) Gentle Jones and Philly’s notorious producer Benjamin Oaks have collaborated on a handful of interesting hiphop tracks the past few years. These gems feature the extreme mental dexterity of Gentle Jones and the lyrical flow of a microphone veteran. Ranging from classic 90’s style soul/funk flavored boombap to experimental electro jams and dubstep/grime bass heavy bangers, Benjamin Oaks showcases the broad range of his musical palette.

Here is a trippy video for the triphop/electro jam by Gentle Jones and our co-founder Benjamin Oaks (of the Numinous).

 

And here is another banger from Gentle Jones’ latest album Blood King.

 

from Remys Music and Film review of ‘Blood King’. the latest album from Gentle Jones

“Blood King ends with strands of Gentle Jones’ origins, a brief snap of ska sets closing track ‘So High I Think I Might Die’ on its way. Lyrically it reads like a reflection of a heightened awareness of mortality, the invincibility and enjoyable trappings of youth versus facing the future, a cosmically set look at what awaits us all on our own day of reckoning. I could be wrong, but one of the enjoyable aspects of Gentle Jones’ music is it’s thematic value, and confusion, it could all mean absolutely nothing, or it could be masking his fears and frustrations with humour, I’ve a feeling it’s the latter, but that can be set aside and the music can just be enjoyed, which I think was the ultimate goal of Blood King.”

from GentleJones.com

“Gentle Jones sits comfortably atop the Mason-Dixon line in his home state of Delaware, performing frequently as a Hip-Hop MC and DJ. He’s also done stints as the Frontman for The Bullbuckers (Ska band) and The Barons (Punk band), winning local awards and international acclaim.

Known for his breathtaking vocal range, Gentle Jones moves easily from singing, to screaming, to intricate rhyming cadences.

Honing his craft on stages from California to Ireland, Gentle Jones has delighted concertgoers beside music legends The Wailers, Murs, Condemned 84, Murphy’s Law, The Pietasters, Cappadonna, Trombone Shorty, Brother Ali, The Slackers, and Bad Luck 13. A phenomenal songwriter with working class roots and space age chops.”

The track “Skateboard Rap” is an ode to the legends of pro skateboard lore.

 

And you can’t forget the East Coast’s love of good “Sandwiches”. Shout outs to Capriott’s Bobby and Wawa.
