ABOUT THE VIDEO
I was imagining the kind of love that’s only possible between true friends
One that can say to another,
Snap the fuck out of it, own your situation and give total clarity,
while still keeping your friend in your heart.
A relationship that cannot go
To the depths of honest does not deserve the word friendship.
I knew the track needed an irish rapper.
That’s a distinct feeling.
I went on the hunt
I asked my brother and a few other deep music heads I have for friends.
Whose the greatest irish rapper of them all?
I got sent lists.
I listened to them ALL.
Many names you know well
Many names you wouldn’t.
It was very clear - who it should be.
I wrote to Jordan and told him the sceal.
He was mad into the track and mad up for rapping on it.
So I said fuck it, I’m flying back to Limerick, where it all began for me.
That’s where I did my music technology masters back in the days.
That was my first step on the path really doing music.
I picked him up. He hadn’t been in touch for days before I picked him up.
There’s a reason his instagram says 085idonthaveaim in the handle.
Was nearly worried he wouldn’t be there when I came for him.
haha, I picked him up, drove to the studio.
Up until then, I hadn’t even asked to hear the rap
Something gave me complete faith it was gonna be perfect
He opened his mouth
And didn’t disappoint
Stange Boy comes out of the traps with
Synchronicity at it’s finest.

Words by delush and Strange Boy
Label is my very own, independent and true: Welcome to the New World
Voice recordings I used:
Habib Lesevic for the voice sample wise words at the start - recorded secretly while my brother was speaking wisdom after capoeira:
"That's why whenever you get your ego bruised, the best thing you can do is fall like a cat.
Fall with style, grace, joy. Be like: I got this."
And the voice in the break - my brother the soul warrior Paul Walsh
“Let someone go make their mistake if there is a mistake to be made, and in that there will actually be growth.” He said that in a whatsapp message to me in the middle of telling an unbelievable true life story. Too long to tell here.
My first time directing was made easy by the incredible people I had to work alongside.
