Finally some eagerly anticpated new music from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis has landed in the shape of “Downtown” and with the single, comes the official music video. The track and the video are a funk spectacular straight out of the eighties; eighties clothes, eighties flows and even eighties appearances by Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz.
The video consists of moped riding, dancing and walking the streets in scenes reminiscent of the film Breakdance. The instrumentation on “Downtown” is dominated by the funkiest bassline around and the Hip Hop beat to match, along with Macklemore’s flawless flow, this song looks set to be a hit. You can watch the video below.
