On the heel of rave reviews for this seemingly effortless cool track, “Jump Down”, Travis Barker, along with The Cool Kids, bring you their equally breezy 3D video. The LA-set video features Travis pounding out beats on his drums while Chuck Inglish & Sir Michael Rocks (The Cool Kids) rap over them. Friends and family hang out with this team, impressing with tricks on their bikes, spraying graffiti, showing off rad cars. The feel is part skate film, part 90s west coast rap video, with the added twist of being in 3D.
Fans who downloaded the Mp3 of “Jump Down” off of TravisBarker.com and shared it, received a pair of 3D glasses to view the video. If you haven’t received your glasses, you can still do so by purchasing any of the official “Jump Down” t-shirts over at Karmaloop.com.
This is not your average MP3 giveaway. Always keeping things interesting, Travis Barker teamed up with Chicagoâ€™s The Cool Kids to release the (obviously) beat heavy, grumbly, p-funk bass, synth-happy â€œJump Downâ€, premiering yesterday.
The release includes a special embeddable widget that allows fans to enter their email address, download the track, and get a pair of 3D glasses mailed to their house, if they share the widget with friends. The 3D glasses will come in handy for the video premiere of the â€œJump Downâ€, slated for October 11th. Glasses will also be included with every order from the equally as fresh, Karmaloop.com. Done strictly for the fans, the entire “Jump Down” project is completely free.
Itching to see the video before it hits the web? Catch it at the â€œJump Downâ€ video launch party, Thursday, Oct. 7th at the Music Box in LA. Hosted by Sneaker Pimps, the party features live performances by Travis Barker and The Cool Kids, themselves.
â€œWith 808â€™s hitting, basslines jumping, Barkerâ€™s ill drum pattern sequences, and The Cool Kids more than cool bars, â€œJump Downâ€ is definitely a head banger (no pun intended).â€
