Sidemen & Jme Channel East 17 On Festive Banger "Christmas Drillings"

December 05, 2022

In case you're yet to activate your Christmas spirit, Jme and Sidemen have the perfect offering that will fill you with enough holiday cheer to get you through the festive season: "Christmas Drillings".

Nyge is on the production, layering shimmering bells over head-bopping drill percussion, ready for the lads to let loose with their best yuletide bars. Jme kicks off with a few complaints about the money-chomping expenses of the holidays and questions those who are way too eager saying, 'it's fucking October, why's your tree up?'. Soon a melodic chorus is introduced, bursting with humour and harmonies, instantly turning this into a holiday banger. The rest of the Sidemen crew chime in one after the other with a bunch of clever rhymes and playful flows, brimming with more than enough glee for everyone.

Konstantin directs the video, transporting us to a snowy North Pole with the crew channelling the spirit of East 17 in their finest all-white Christmas garms. Around a grand piano and reindeer sleighs, they bop around to their tune giving an unmissable performance, so take it for a spin in below.
