Freaky Friday Flicks
I have had my inbox flooded with videos this week and have decided to share some with the blog. After all we know that video killed the radio star. (Youtube killed the Soundcloud star just doesn’t have the same ring.)
First off we have Major Lazer (Youtube) bringing us “Come On To Me” featuring Sean Paul on vocals. The strange combination of Caribbean sounds and rhythms with Asian themed drops and visuals works. Even though if you where to just describe it that way, it sounds like it shouldn’t. Plus who doesn’t like twerking geishas.
Next up we have Dillon Francis (Youtube) and DJ Snake (Youtube) bringing us the video for “Get Low”. The song itself has been on heavy rotation in my own sets. Middle Eastern makams and trap go together like peanut butter and ladies. The video itself features the two producers as urban sultans with a twerk team that get’s strangely low, and booty that makes makes your eyes bug out.
The final video comes from the music video masters Die Antwoord (Youtube). This video is “Pitbull Terrier” for their upcoming album Donker Mag. There is no twerking in this video but what it does feature is a Ninja turned pitbull terrorizing the burbs. Until sneaky Yo-Landi catches his attention and he finds dangers of running in the street. The video is full of the strange Africian occult imagery we have all come to love from Die Antwoord, and the track itself is a nod from DJ Hi-Tek to the 90’s Acid House sound. This combination is making me very excited for the upcoming June 3rd release for Donker Mag.
