New Video from Montreal B Boy/Producer Lunice
Lunice ft… Snoopy?
Montreal producer Lunice danced his way into our hearts with a performance at Osheaga in 2010. Since then, his momentum has quickened and more people are hearing about the black/Filipino kid from Canada who makes nasty hip hop beats and wilds out to them live.
When we last spoke with Lunice, he had just dropped a new mixtape and he mentioned he was working on some jams, which made us hella curious as to what would come next from this 23 year old dynamo with a backpack on.
Lunice just dropped a track called “Hip Pop” with a brand new video sampled from the annals of TV history. The main character is Snoopy. Spliced into footage from the 80s and 90s (so many flattops! so many parachute pants!), Snoopy and Charlie Brown strut around in their finest B Boy gear finding opportunities to “bust a move” (at least that’s what I think the kids are calling it these days).
The track itself has the slow and low feel of “The Whisper Song,” except Lunice had the sense to leave out any awful lyrics, something that never dawned on the Ying Yang twins. In the place of a verse, Lunice lays in a sound that we have deciphered to be Billy Bob Thornton’s grunts from Sling Blade. We’re about 99 per cent sure, so correct us if we’re wrong.
