Baba Crunch and Hak Baker haven't featured on a track together since 2006, when Bomb Squad released their early grime hit "B.O.M.B." Now they're back together on "Lucky Life," a slow-burning Kelly Portis-produced single about the ups and downs of growing up on the Isle of Dogs in East London. The single was released last week, and today they're premiering the song's video, directed by Will Robson-Scott.
"The world looked a lot different when me, Hak, and Crunch initially started speaking about this video," Robston-Scott wrote in an email to The FADER this morning. "I wanted there to be a slightly voyeuristic and removed feel to the video — turns out this is how many people are living their lives now. Looking out of windows, waiting for the unknown, days rolling into another and another, the repetition. The meaning of the video has slightly changed, that usually happens when you take a photo and look back at it years later. The way I see this video has already shifted and it's only been a matter of weeks."
