There are soo many youtube accounts out there that put together found footage as music videos, some do it well and some don’t, some use footage we’ve all scene from famous 80’s and 90’s film and some like Broken Machine Films find some of the most obscure material and rework it completely.
Matt Pyke at Universal Everything has done some incredible work over the years. Every time they release something new I’ll watch it at least 10 times trying to figure out what’s going on. In my opinion, some of the most creative, colorful and technically complex visuals have come out of this studio. Interestingly, The Creators Project has done a short documentary on Matt, giving us a glimpse into his studio and way of thinking about his work. If you’ve got the time, it’s a great watch and if you’ve got a little more time head over to the Universal Everything site and Vimeo to check out the work.
Wild Nothing released today a video for the track Paradise off their new album Nocturne which stars actress Michelle Williams, who also recorded the monologue that can be heard in the video. Paradise was also featured in our latest ISO50 Playlist 15.

Fascinating BBC doc on history of recorded music featuring a whole lot of EMS synths including the Synthi 100 “Delaware” modular system (pictured below). Fun Fact: Years ago I had the opportunity to buy a Synthi 100 system in beautiful condition for a very reasonable price. For reasons I can’t explain now, I passed on it. Honestly, it would have been a nightmare to maintain and very impractical, but look at that thing. I still regret the decision every time I see a picture of a 100. These days my synth acquisition pace has slowed quite a bit, mostly just holding out for a Memorymoog LAMM and a Prophet 5, then I’ll be done.
Its always your creative ideas and story that makes your music reach out even further to new people. This idea of 10 locked grooves on a 12″ by Darkstar is better than a buddha machine, you might want to preorder 2 of the 12’s incase one wears out.
