Apparently Saatchi & Saatchi have teamed up with Vimeo for some sort of video project for Moby’s new album. I’m short on details for the project and time to look them up, so just enjoy the video (found via Phase02).

Toronto has been cold and snowy for the past few weeks, and these two videos have got me stoked to be spending the next week or so on the Valley Isle.
The best part of the first video (track below) is where he gets the chick to get in the pool with him. Pure Fitte Prinse right there.
As I Tweeted earlier, this trailer for The Electro Wars (a documentary about electronic music) has me absolutely stoked about the state of music today. From the film’s decription:
“It seems that every other day a new remix is popping up on the blogosphere, how does this affect marketing for other independent artists? Do they welcome the remixes or oppose them? Is music overload possible? What will eventually happen when all these budding producers grab a hold of a Pro Tools tutorial and develop their own remixes week in and week out? Will the remix itself become obsolete? Will original tracks have to step up to the forefront rather than recede into the background? Themes of this nature are explored in the film.”
The trailer seems to answer most of these questions, and all the artists interviewed seem to agree that it doesn’t matter what category music is in anymore, and that it is all amazing and all in one stream, and that there is a place for everything.
Anyways, here’s a few tracks from the soundtrack:
Did you watch that video of “Neon” Dion Agius? The whole thing is super slick, but when he lands that big 360 at around 3:18 that’s when you know he’s serious.
Dion Agius isn’t a musician but he’s on MySpace (and hey, it says he’s from Currumbin! I learned to surf at the alley).
I know that I normally include a photo with each one of my posts here, but in this case I’m making an exception. The reason I’m making an exception is because (as Claudio who first showed me this video pointed out), every frame looks like a photo.
Watch the whole thing - right through to the credits.
I wish I knew more about the track, but the most I can find is Hecq’s MySpace.
I saw Tiga the other day…then watched the interview he did for his new album. If you haven’t seen it, go to Tiga’s website, and watch it. With lines like “My lyrics basically reveal essentially how interesting how I am” and it gives you a whole new appreciation for the man as an entertainer. Seriously - just watch the interview and prepare to be hilariously blown away. I also really appreciate it when he says “As a child I always believed and dreamed of a glorious, golden, mysterious future. And i feel like I’ve arrived. ”
And for you lazy ones that won’t go to his website to watch the interview video, here it is in two parts:
Hit up Tiga on Facebook
I don’t really know if Mirror’s Edge is actually a French game, but since it is based on that parkour stuff it has a certain “je ne sais quois” of coolness about it. More props to it for rocking a cyberpunk storyline.
Pop The Glock is the first Uffie song that I ever heard, and the video below from Mirror’s Edge reminded of it.
(Merci a Play Five pour le vid!)
Check out this wicked vid about Hip-Hop in the former communist East Germany (via Hurt You Bad) then listen to Li’l Kim “put it down in German” by covering Biggie’s Hypnotize with some German fella at her side.
“My first diary notes ‘84: I am really making progress doing the electric boogie.”
You cannot make that shit up. Nor can you make up the name for themselves: Automatic Freaszy Crew. Even they admit that ‘freaszy’ isn’t a word.
Expect to see it a lot in upcoming posts from 199X.
We Heart Stuff calls the line of bling “over-the-top” and “distasteful.” That’s kinda makes me want it more.
Also check out the Coco Rosie/Prada video that we covered earlier.
