First watch of video for Dolly Parton by L.A. hip hop duo recently featured in our Tape Adapter column

There’s not much use in trying to subcategorise what Los Angeles hip hop duo Shadowrunners do. Sure, Froskees’ bleepy beats and hazy throwback vibes are chock full of hairspray feels and roller rink romances, but to slap some sort of additional qualifier atop what he’s done just seems needlessly gratuitous. The same applies to Andre Martel, a.k.a. Himself The Majestic, whose proclivities for anime and superhero lore may appease the Comic-Con set yet no one ought paint him with the nerdcore broad brush.

Premiering today, their delightful ‘Dolly Parton’ Betamax music video comes in the wake of their recent self-titled release, one the year’s best mixtapes and still available as a pay-what-you-damn-well-please digital download.
