Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon have a new video for their track ‘Ice Cold’, from their album ‘Let’s Talk’.
“I’ve got eyes like an octogenarian”, moans Syntax, before running through a list of time-induced complaints in typically jocular, self-deprecating fashion, before ending on a positive note, declaring “All of the above, I accept it”.
Basically, it’s an ode to knocking on a bit but doing it unashamedly, if not gracefully.
Suitably enough, Pete’s backdrop is a low-end throbbing head-nodder that could only have been made on production equipment as rickety as Syntax’s left knee joint.
In recent times, Pete has kitted out his studio with a hoard of old hardware, including his ubiquitous Amiga, bringing him to the attention of jungle labels Hospitality and Kniteforce.
‘Ice Cold’ finds him on a classic hip hop tip though, cooking up a banger sure to satisfy heads old and new.
The duo release a new EP, ‘The Tonic 2’, on 1 October, and embark on a UK tour.
