Great news! A few days ago, Cape Town’s very own kings of Gypsy Jungle Music, Crimson House (who recently blew audiences away at Mieliepop 2018) released their video and new single “Jo Bounce”. The track sees them exploring new musical territories with a genre they’ve called ADM (or Acoustic Dance Music).
Vocalist / Guitarist Riaan Smit comments “ADM is a style that Crimson House are experimenting with in where we are getting inspired by the EDM sounds however we creating all the sounds live with our instruments. The builds, the drops the works. Jo Bounce is exactly that, it’s ska meets house meets electronica all done by our own hands. We hope to delve more into this genre in the future”
The video features 18 year old Cape Town local Joel Baker, who they discovered while playing a show. Joel is also the inspiration behind the tracks name. Riaan Smit says “We were playing a gig in camps bay, when this kid broke out in uncontrollable dancing, he had mad skills, so we invited him to studio so we could shoot him doing his thing to our tune, he did one solid take and this is what we got.”
The video for “Jo Bounce” was shot by Endemic Productions and directed by Liberty Verbaan, the team behind the video for previous single “Don’t Forget To Take Your Medicine” (which has had almost 100K views on YouTube). Check it out below:
