Cadence Weapon Premieres New Video for "Hype Man"

Cadence Weapon is back with a new video for his hip hop anthem, "Hype Man," up now on Exclaim! and Stereogum who describes the clip, "Cadence adapts the personas of both a star rapper and his hapless, nameless hypeman sidekick...illustrating a vast divide in the rap power dynamic." Co-directed by Rollie himself and award-winning director George Vale, the video is a compelling and cinematic look at the seedier, darker side of hip-hop, exploring the plights and demise of a hype man.

DZ Deathrays "Dollar Chills (Cadence Weapon Remix)"
Aussie garage duo DZ Deathrays get the Cadence Weapon remix treatment turning "Dollar Chills" into a beat-heavy track that blends minimal synths with heavily altered vocals. Sorta like those jive rhythm trax breakdancing records from the ‘80s crossed with nu shooz.


Liars drop "Brats (Cadence Weapon Remix)"

Cadence Weapon has stepped in to remix Liars "Brats" turning the track into a hip hop monster that even includes him dropping a verse above deep bass drops.

The remix is one of three that will be released on the upcoming "Brats" single, due out on 12" and digital download October 16 from Mute.

The former touringmate of Liars will embark on the “Hope In Dirt City” tour this fall. Check out the dates here.

CADENCE WEAPON ANNOUNCES HOPE IN DIRT CITY TOUR

Having already toured with Liars and Japandroids on sold out tours this year Cadence Weapon is taking his exhilarating live show to fans across North America this fall in a headlining tour for his acclaimed album, Hope In Dirt City, out now on Upper Class.

Rollie Pemberton's live show is a hypercharged, utterly captivating performance. Cadence Weapon's influences, while rooted in hip-hop, push traditional genre boundaries by incorporating elements of IDM, soul, disco and old school rap. The compositional complexity of his music combined with Pemberton's intelligent, thought-provoking lyrical prowess translates into one of the most memorable live shows around.
