Just in time for the halloween season, dancehall’s man of the moment, Tommy Lee Sparta has released his own horror flick.
His highly anticipated, Shook (Uncle Demon) video has been officially unveiled. Michael Jackson, the artiste’s biggest influence played a major role with the videos concept.
Tommy was inspired by Jackson’s iconic music video from 1984, Thriller. Thriller is regarded as one of the greatest music videos of all time and the artiste felt the need to create his own version.
The Shook (Uncle Demon) video was shot in Port Royal. This location was chosen by the artiste who believes the now destroyed city should be filled with spirits from catastrophic earthquakes of the past. An element that would add a perfect back drop to the frightening images and effects that he wants to thrill his audience with. According to Tommy, “Uncle Demon is entertainment, mi want recreate the horror house from school days and weh me see Michael Jackson a gwaan wid back inna the days. Everybody love scary movies, that is just excitement! “
Tommy played the split personality lead roles of, Uncle Demon and Nephew Demon, both his alter egos. The video was directed by fellow Montegonian, DK Konsepp of SR Productions. Konsepp produced Tommy Lee Sparta’s first video, “Warn Dem” in 2009. Shook (Uncle Demon) which is produced by Robert “Dinearo” Graham is track #7 on Tommy Lee Sparta’s soon to be released Grim Reaper EP. Grim Reaper will be the first compilation to be released by the artiste and is a collaborative effort with UIM Records through 21st Hapilos. The EP will be available on I Tunes on October 2nd and will feature nine (9) tracks.
