Of all the suggestions that have been sent to the site over these past 10 months, this video is easily the most requested. So why has it taken so long for us to post it? Well we already kinda did. It was a prominent part of Animals and, since we could only ever find it in standard def, we felt as though it’d be a little redundant to feature it on it’s own.
Well, it turns out that the video’s director – the multi-talented lilfuch – recently uploaded it to his Vimeo account only three short months ago in full HD so I figured it was high time we gave this tasty bundle of electrons it’s own home on the site. Plus, as of tonight it’s only accrued a scant 1,400 views so let’s get this thing passed around. You’ve probably already seen it – odds are you’ve probably already sent it in – but believe me, Zodiac Shit always worth another viewing. Full screen and headphones (Flying Lotus!) friends; you know the drill. Enjoy!
Oh and be sure to check out lilfuch’s website. It’s chock-full with rad, colorful illustrations.
Kristofer Ström – the mind behind Baltimore Clap, one of our all-time favorites (if you haven’t seen it already, do so immediately) – is back with another fantastic music video, this time for London-based dubstep outfit 16bit. It’s some rad, bizarre business so grab the headphones and full screen this bitch. Enjoy!
Much gratitude is owed to both Nik and connor for sending this one in; thanks for the heads up friends!
From what I can tell DADOpresents used some planetified 360 panoramic footage in order to pull off this unofficial video for Sonnensturm by Pantha Du Prince. The tune is very nice – I’m rather partial to this particular flavor of tight, rambling, syncopated electronica – and the visuals do a great job of pulling your eyes along through the ebbs, flows and stabs of the five minute ride. Serving suggestion: late-night in a dark room with the volume up.
Thanks for the suggestion, Hermes!
“The concept for this spot came to us in a dream and we’re still not sure what it all means.”
Hermes wrote in to let us know about a video ilovedust created as part of MTV’s recent worldwide rebranding campaign. It’s a quick, colorful psychedelic dive down the wormhole (with some fantastic sound design from WEVIE) that we whole-heartedly approve of. If you’re into this sort of thing then be sure to check out another MTV spot they created, Adrenaline Rush, that they recently posted to their Vimeo page. Enjoy!
“At the doors of Babylon, You are my Zion;
Pacing Tiger, the keeper’s cage.
Invisible light shoots from your eyes,
A sign I can see from my high rise.”
NSFW Warning: This video as a few, brief shots that feature bare female breasts so don’t click play if you’re at work.
“I don’t know where your from but I know you’ve come far. Look at your eyes: they’re meteorites.”
Hospital Records has been a reliable source for high quality electronic music for the past decade-and-a-half, consistently powered by their deep stable of talent like London Elektricity (featured in this video) and High Contrast (my personal favorite) whose uplifting, harmonic and driving production style has earned him a dedicated playlist on whatever portable music player is currently powering my headphones. The videos they release are of similar quality: well produced, original and fitting visual accompaniments to the songs they represent. ‘Meteorites’ takes you on a colorful high-definition journey through space, peppered with numerous references to sci-fi properties that are near and dear to both Tony Colman and Chris Goss (Hospital’s founders).
I don’t know who’s responsible for the visuals but if you do then please drop us a line and we’ll update this post to give the proper credit where it’s due. In the meantime: click full screen, make sure HD is on and grab your headphones for a journey through the stars. Enjoy!
A big thanks goes to Lieutenant TD for the heads up! Cheers!
Colorful high definition animation set to some french electro pop that takes the viewer on a bizarre fantastic voyage through a forest to a flying train, the inner wormhole visions of the mind and beyond. In other words: an instant classic of The Tripatorium™. Direction from Sanghon Kim, production by Machine Molle (of Cartoon Style Fighting Kids fame) with backing tunes courtesy Les Mains Ensorcelées.
The proper viewing ritual should be familiar by now: full screen, in HD with a nice pair of headphones strapped to your skull. Enjoy!
Know what’s kind of a bummer? That this music video is only one minute and fifty-three seconds long. Journeys down the wormhole should be at least three to four minutes long at a minimum – like this little gem for instance. Anyways, the backing tune is from Delta Heavy and the visuals were created by, well, I have no idea actually. If you know who directed/animated the attached video please drop us a line and we’ll update the post to give proper credit where it is due.
Cheers to l3mon for the suggestion. Thanks!
Take an audio/visual synced trip through the wormhole via the visual stylings of Thomas de Rijk and the bass-heavy glitch-synth sounds of Slugabed. Full screened/headphones for this one folks – might as well crank the volume while you’re getting them plugged in, too – and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the feline-deity who sustains us all.
