Made up of brothers Jeff and Kevin Saurer, Californian music duo Hippie Sabotage are known for their eclectic beats, and richly diverse and dynamic live sound. We are happy to bring them in for a Weedsday playlist, which draws from diverse influences like Wu-Tang Clan, Pink Floyd and Luniz.
The Hippies are wrapping up a 34-date U.S tour, which arrives on the heels of their completely sold out run of domestic and international shows in 2017, which included a September date at London’s Camden Assembly.
Working in the studio with the likes of THEY, Alina Baraz and Khalid as they look to unleash a flurry of new music in 2018.
1. Wu Tang Clan - Bring Da Ruckus
Growing up, we absolutely worshipped the Wu Tang Clan. Back when we were just listening to hip hop, were completely obsessed with anything Wu Tang and all of their affiliates. To us, this song represents an entire era of our lives when we would just go out, skate around the neighborhood, get high and listen to music.
2. Steppenwolf- The Pusherman
Simply because it’s tight, you’ve just gotta love it. We've smoked a looooooot of weed to that song. Actually come to think of it, the first time we got high we listened to that song. Brings back so many good memories.
3. Pink Floyd - Money
Growing up, our dad’s best friend from Kentucky was a huge Pink Floyd fanatic. Whenever we’d go visit him as kids, he had this huge framed picture of the cover for The Wall. It just became ingrained in our minds that Pink Floyd is awesome, and they shaped a big part of our childhood. I totally listened to this song the first time I did shrooms, it’s such good vibes.
4. Styles P - Good Times (I Get High)
The video for this was just like... amazing. I remember seeing it and it completely blew my mind. Styles P inspired not only our not only our love for music because A Gangster And A Gentleman was an amazing album, but this is what put the idea in our heads at an earlier age of making a crazy weed song because the video was amazing.
5. Luniz- I Got 5 On It
This song means a lot to us because our first placement ever in stores was with Yuckmouth.
