Runt & Phen (James Owens and Ryan Truncoso respectively) are members of an interstate, on the grind, Hip-Hop collective known as the Jivin Scientists. For the video – Abigail, JS made a late night dash across the state line to New Mexico. They met up with their artistic partner and video director Concept Flux (Phillip Torres et Crew) for a 48hr, multiple location, little to no sleep shoot. Runt’s narrative about Abigail, tells a story about a pretty yet sad neighbor girl. She has him at the crossroads of crush and concern, and he’s hesitant to make a move out of equal parts shyness and respectfulness of her self imposed cage. Phen’s production sees layered vocals over an 8 bar guitar sample and a steady ebb and flow of percussive builds that Torres, in turn brings vividly to life. Now on their third collaboration together, Jivin Scientists & Concept Flux have found a lovely kind of synergy that hopefully keeps bearing fruit. And with Runt & Phen already putting the finishing touches on a new album for 2015, that seems very likely.
