Last week Bibio shared a video sampler of what his album will sound like, geeking out to this one.
Little People was sent over email to me, I love the use of moss, glass and projection, if only I could get large amounts of moss for live shows, i’d be soo content on stage.
This Sparkles and Wine teaser video has been floating around the web the last few days, showing off the importance of how you light a face in a video, makes a huge difference.
Last but not least, more great content from the guys at Yourstru.ly, sharing an inside look of the Solar Year studio time.
One of the better ways to deal with the confusion of subgenres and scene explanation is video interviews from the rising artists, and Red Bull Music did just that. They’ve recently conquered Alt R&B, Post Dubstep, Cloud Rap, and “Beats“, I think they’re going to keep going, well at least I hope they do. I’m not sure what will be next, honestly its a good series to watch, especially if you’re young and old and make beats. It gives the new generation reason and explains to them some humble beginnings and patience.
After posting the Solvent song yesterday and watched the trailer that it was intended for, oh man does it make me want to own a modular synth but all I can think about is how i’d only make arpeggios though, hmmm. Also, how do you finish a song on these? I’d just make music all day and never even think of recording it as a song.
“I Dream of Wires” (IDOW) is an upcoming, independent documentary film about the phenomenal resurgence of the modular synthesizer – exploring the passions, obsessions and dreams of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this esoteric electronic music machine. Written and directed by Robert Fantinatto, with Jason Amm (Ghostly International recording artist Solvent) serving as producer and co-writer, IDOW is set to receive it’s festival premiere, May 2013.
Adam Fuchs and Flying Lotus team for a psychedelic video to promote Moog’s Sub Phatty. Moog claims that this is their “grittiest Moog synth ever”, they definitely found the right man for the job, this “Such a Square” track refreshes FlyLo sound.
Vitsoe has just released a great video depicting an apartment in Munich lived in by two Vitsoe veterans who have been living with the shelving system since the 60s.
Dieter Rams and general design aficionados will appreciate the various items presented on the shelves.
ISAORA is one of those clothing brands that define the highest level of outerwear for men, its pieces like these that you save up for a keep for years. Shigeto and I did the exclusive track for the video, the footage was directed by Paul Jung. If you get a chance to look deeper in their catalog I recommended everyone to look at their Reflective Coat, I saw it in person and was blown away by the quality and detailing on the inside.
I recently travelled back to Santiago, Chile (where I grew up) for one of my best friends wedding, and while there I was amazed by how many good local bands I was exposed to and how good of a music scene that city has.
Amongst them was Zebra, a dream-wave trio formed by DJ/Producer Sebastian Roman (Roman/MKRNI), Miguel Irarrazaval (Treboles) and Enrique Escala (Treboles), who with their first EP “AD Portas I” caught the attention of Picnic Kubun’s label Endemika Records. I was instantly blown away by the level of sophistication in their arrangements and catchy hooks, not to mention how virtuosos they are in regards to live instrumentation, so when they asked me to design an album cover for their upcoming release, I was honored (I’m also working on an official music video…more on that later).
Today, Zebra unveiled the title track of that release, which carries the name of “Summer Love” and is set to drop early March, 2013.
