The legendary duo Basement Jaxx not too long ago dropped this animated music video for their single Unicorn. Animations in the video were created by Tomek Ducki. The song itself is a real groovy deep house track reminiscent of 90’s house music. With the words Jump In! repeated through the track it is not hard to start dancing and jumping along. Check out the video below.
DC & Hooks just released their new EP Somewhere Else on the first day of July. On this 8 track EP Zeds Dead brought back Omar Linx, who we all know to have worked with the Canadian duo on countless tracks, and Memorecks who worked on the single Jericho months prior. DC & Hooks also collabed with Big Gigantic, Bright Lights, Perry Farrell, Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy and Sean Price to give this EP such amazing vibes that differentiate between each song from smooth and fluid to heavy and wild. Somewhere Else really shows this duo’s abilities to evolve their sound and adapt with the times and audiences to stay relevant while keeping that distinctive sound we all love so much.
Before the release of this EP Zeds Dead dropped plenty of preview tracks for Somewhere Else to keep fans ready for the new release. They came through not only with sounds to satisfying our ears but with visual stimulation as well. They unleashed a real tripped out video for the track Lost You ft Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy. The psychedelic animations in the video reminiscent of a bad acid trip features melting faces and skulls, colorful animals and layering visuals with just about every color and pattern sequence you can think of. Check out the video below yourself.
Unloading previews and videos from the EP to fans might have seemed generous enough of them but check this out. Zeds Dead actually partnered up with bit torrent to give fans a package of free material from them. This package would include an unreleased track Love Me, full video of Lost You for you to own, the stems to their hit track Hadouken and their first EP Fresh Beets when they were just known as Mass Productions. Own all that and more when you download the bit torrent bundle here.
When the Disclosure brothers released a music video for their track “Help Me Lose My Mind” it was instantly put out in the spotlight, but not in a way you would think. The topic of discussion was that this video portrayed drug use in youth culture and so the controversial music video was taken off the web. But it was not long before it came back on the Daily Motion video portal. However, it disappeared from there as quickly as it came back. But in an Q&A with Revolt the two brothers didn’t seem to mind stating “Music videos aren’t our thing”.
Through the eyes of electronic music fans the music video would seem harmless. There is no such drug or drug use through out the whole video. Nope it is quite the opposite rather. The drug of choice in the video was not a drug at all. It was just the song that Disclosure made for the video in the first place. The kids in the video do what any music lover would do. They dance with a heightened sense of euphoria in their steps in a dimly lit club setting, with flashing lights and a yearning for adventure as the tune soothes their eardrums. As we all do when we hear such beautiful sounds.
The video? Well it is hard to find, but not impossible. With enough searching it came up on an Asian version of youtube. There is no telling how long it will stay up. But catch it while you can in this link right here and you decide. Is it too graphic for audiences? Hit play if you dare!
