Have a look at this bizarrely haunting animated mash-up video for the understated, yet ridiculously emotive track, Replica, by Oneohtrix Point Never. The video, by Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) himself, uses footage from an old Russian animation called Nu, pogodi!
Replica is taken from Oneohtrix Point Never’s new album, of the same name, which is out 8 November on Software/Mexican Summer. For those less familiar with his work, he’s a leading name within the drone and ambient arenas, having previously released … [read more]
Your favourite Swiss synth-lord and beatmaker is back. I am, of course, referring to Dimlite. This is the video created by Crouced Tif / Ehstrawlogy Produkte for the track, Fridge Note, taken from Dimlite‘s upcoming Grimm Reality album – out through Stones Throw imprint Now-Again Records on 22 November.
The video appears to depict a man losing his mind in his own kitchen. The music, however, starts off within a heavy, electronic guise, enveloped by warped vocals and a feeling of … [read more]
Although I don’t advocate the cooking of records, or even shoes, if this video (directed by Akira Thompson) acts as a reminder to tell people to check out the fantastic Cookin’ Gumbo album by Captain Planet, then I officially approve.
Out now on Bastard Jazz Recordings, Cookin’ Gumbo blends funk, afrobeat and jazz, but in multiple tempos and directions. Some of it is straight up dancefloor, whilst other tracks are more tempered and deep. I definitely recommend checking it out as it’s extremely … [read more]
South African-born, Australia-based, Jonti has created one of the most interesting albums of the year with his release Twirligig – which is out this month on Stones Throw. So, above is a fan-made video for the track Frightened Mice, which Stones Throw have decided to champion. I don’t know what’s more endearing; the song or the video. Either way, I was hypnotised!
About nine months ago a mysterious remix of an old Marvin Gaye track appeared on Soundcloud by a guy no-one seemed to have heard of before. That guy was Ambassadeurs, and in the nine months since, well, he’s taken certain quarters of the underground music scene by storm.
With his debut EP, Come A Little Closer, literally just about to drop on Jalapeno Records, we now have an official video for the Marvin edit known as Ain’t That Peculiar. A wicked … [read more]
I don’t know how anyone could dislike this video for the track Legend In My Own Mind by The Stepkids. Written and directed by Tom Scharpling, it all starts with a guy peddling hip-hop CDs on the street. What happens next is, well, I guess kinda magical!
This is the hypnotic and psychedelic music video directed by Stefan Asanovic for the track Biddies by Mo Kolours. The track is taken from Mo Kolours‘ recent EP, Drum Talking, on One-Handed Music (home to releases by Paul White, Bullion and Ahu).
Mo Kolours, who is of half-Mauritian origin, uses the native ‘sega’ sounds of Mauritius (not to be confused with Japanese computer games) in his own unique and contemporary way to fashion beautiful music which combines tribal’esque rhythms with leftfield … [read more]
The beautifully understated electronic/hip-hop track plays on a mixture between heavy beats and delicate instrumentation, and it’s represented here with a highly appropriate video featuring plenty of musical gadgetry and subtle, yet classy, film techniques. We definitely approve.
If you haven’t checked out Debian Blak’s EP, A Hint Of Menace, then I’m liable to … [read more]
The video for 212 by Azealia Banks is back on YouTube! I don’t even care who/what/how/why, just glad it’s back.
Something really addictive about this track, 212, by American emcee and singer Azealia Banks. Take a look at this video, with cheeky cameos from Lunice and Jacques Green, and it’ll become instantly apparent that Azealia Banks has a ridiculous flow. Like RIDICULOUS. This isn’t even a female emcee thing, this is just an emcee thing – she’s on par with anyone else … [read more]
