Blimes and Redinho have shared the visuals for their joint single, ‘Snake Skin Boots’.
Filmed in a stunning Californian desert and featuring a full marching band, it’s safe to say these visuals embody how much of a hard-hitting, explosive banger the collaboration between the pair is. Check it out below.
Bonded over a love for funk, soul and hip hop, Californian rapper Blimes first met multi-instrumentalist Redinho in London whilst on tour.
Produced, recorded and mixed by Redinho, ‘Snake Skin Boots’ will feature as the opening track on Blimes new album, Castles.
Castles will feature further collaborations with names like Method Man, Reverie, Gifted Gab, and Olivia.Wav.
Speaking of the track, Blimes said: “Redinho cooked up the arrangement for Snake Skin Boots after an afternoon of sharing our respective tales from the road and musical upbringings. The moment I heard the horns, I knew he had taken into consideration records of the greats like Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett that had played the soundtrack to my early years. I filled him in on my childhood which most memorably consisted of looking up to my father from the side of the stage. His outfits loud and his dance moves louder, I wanted to be just like him. And whether it was sharkskin suits, or snake skin boots he was dressed to the nines every time he got up there and strapped on his bass guitar.”
