Anna Meredith is a London-based composer that creates music ranging from maximalist contemporary pieces to pleasantly quantit electro-pop folk music like with “Dowager”. In a lot of ways, the song reminds me of my longtime pop/folk favorites Tunng. The music video is wonderfully crafted by Director and Animator Ewan Jones Morris.
Cassius teams up with Cat Power and Mr Happy himself, Pharell Williams, for a dizzying upbeat pop track. They’ve enlisted the amazing people over at DIVISION to make the visuals, with Director Alex Courtes taking charge. The result is endless vertical and horizontel split screens with double meanings and commentary galore.
Video maestros The Offstream have mixed the amazing hand drawn visuals of artist Martino Prendini with Daphni’s thunderous track “Yes I Know” to great effect.
Paint on pictures. Director Derek Black takes a brilliant idea for music video, executes it beautifully and makes it look so simple. Perfect match for Sharks’ Teeth’s unique sound. Read more →
French producer Douchka has pretty undefinable sound and his music video for ‘Together’ is similarly hard to pin down. Vivid colours, tangled shapes, and just the right level of enough intrigue to keep you watching.
Shoutout to Russians to being the craziest muthaf***ers on earth. Just when you thought the reversed music video was played out, Director Ilya Naishuller, pulls this shit. Amazing.
This post isn’t really about Snacks (the House/Disco duo are definitely worth your attention tho) but more about Street Player, a youtube channel, that chooses dope House tracks, awesome local dancers and sets them up to dance in the middle of chaos that London, Paris or any city. It takes a lot of guts to dance in the middle of a dancefloor let alone the busy Southbank walkway but dancer Dechen Gendun absolutely kills it. Big ups to her, Street Player (subscribe to them, they deserve more followers!) and the Snacks boys for the whole spectacle!
Anderson Paak’s meteoric rise in the past year or so can be attributed to a lot of things but the most visible reason is that the man is relentless in creating and collaborating. His longtime partner in crime for NxWorries, super producer Knxwledge, joins him in special live version of a few of their tracks, wonderfully ‘visually remixed’ by Ruff Mercy and Ross Harris.
