Welcome to the latest edition of your beloved music video feature here on Electronic Beats. After last week’s LoFi-Exodus, today we have some really nice videos with Brenk Sinatra, Beat Culture, Bodi Bill, Wiley and many more.
#0 Keep Shelly in Athens – Running Out of You (directed by Thanasis Tsimpinis)
Beautiful music video for ‘Running Out of You’ off Keep Shelly in Athens‘ great In Love With Dusk EP. Or is this a short film called M I N E ? Anyway, we love it.
#1 Brenk Sinatra – Hit U Fan (directed by Winarsky)
The new Brenk Sinatra album is out on Melting Pot Records and it sounds like a banger from what we’ve heard so far. Same with this video.
#2 Beat Culture – Before You Go (directed by Originalfakeism)
New video from 17 year-old Beat Culture for the track ‘Before You Go’ off his upcoming LP Tokyo Dreamer, out on the 15th of January. Beat Culture = Sunik Kim and he only started making music in February of last year and so he is obviously a considerable talent.
#3 Twin-Gemz – Car Windows (directed by Bunny Michael)
We found this over at the inspiring No Conclusion blog, who pointed out that the Twin-Gemz from Brooklyn have a new dope beat/video to share. Made by the bands-own Bunny Michael.
#4 \^?^/// of MATER SUSPIRIA VISION feat. CARMEN INCARNADINE – She’s on Drugs (directed by Cosmotropia de Xam)
When the rain begins to fall? You might have to wait until February, 5th – when Mater Suspiria Vision’s Inverted Triangle III feat. Shivabel will be out.
#5 Trust – Bulbform (directed by Duncan Alexander Forbes)
2012 is sure to be a great year for music and one of those eagerly awaited albums is the debut album by Trust called TRST. Here is the first single from the album and its called ‘Bulbform’.
#6 NeoPopSicle – AWAKE (directed by Jonny Walker)
“I couldn’t really tell you what’s wrong with me, cuz really I been feelin like I just don’t know.” – NeoPopSicle
#7 Madden – Bloodonmy (directed by Alex Wolf)
How are you, Datamosh? It’s been a while since Chairlift, Presets and Kanye were pushing video manipulating to the next level. Now a new moshy video reached my mailbox: made by Alex Wolf for the classy Madden track called ‘Bloodonmy’.
#8 Warren Suicide – Hello Mom [Oval Remix] (directed by the29nov Films)
The 29nov Films did it again. These guys are really killing it. Unpaid, talented directors of the 21st century, who are into the freshest tunes, which just appeared online. Here’s their latest edit for Oval‘s remix of Warren Suicide‘s ‘Hello Mom’.
#9 Bodi Bill – And Patience (directed by Ulf Aminde)
This track is taken from Bodi Bill‘s third albumWhat which was released earlier this year via Sinnbus. It’s all about fusing indie-pop with influences from minimal techno and glitchy electronica. Great.
#10 Wiley – Boom Blast (directed by Us Design)
Wiley releases the visuals for his new song ‘Boom Blast’. I’m not sure about this tune. What you saying?
What is it with wolves? Tyler and his Wolf Gang have been killing it since January, Marflow called himself a wolf and now there is the new video from Austria’s most important beat producer Brenk, called – you guessed it – Wolves 2 (Still Hungry). If you haven’t listened to our homeboy’s new album, Gumbo II, you should right now. It’s a masterpiece in the spirit of instrumental godfather J Dilla. None of the 23 tracks, including a few fantastic skits (my most favourite is Grindas) are to be missed.
We are not sure which films have been used to cull the footage for the video, although the majority is definitely from American Werewolf in London. When it comes to werewolves one of the best films is still NIGHT OF THE WERWOLF aka THE CRAVING with the infamous Paul Naschy. Go and watch it, if you ever have the opportunity.
As you may have guessed after listening to Brenk Sinatra’s masterpiece Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly), he’s not a man of many words. But hey, what do you need rap for when you got the best beats around? We took our chance and asked our favourite producer a few questions, and even though he stayed quite tight-lipped we got what we wanted. Some of the answers don’t come as a surprise; we probably all agree on J Dilla when it comes to the most influential people in hip-hop, and most of us are at one when it comes to beer and ketchup. To be honest, though, we’ve never heard of Gilbert Einaudi and he’s definitely worth checking out.

Gumbo II is out since Friday, September 23rd. Get it.
Chances are you never heard about the Viennese Producer and beatmaster Brenk Sinatra. That’s probably because you haven’t done your homework. Luckily lot’s of international producers and rappers aren’t that lazy. DJ Premier and MC Eight – to name just two – used his beats in some of their latest productions, which is pretty amazing for a Kaisermühlen homeboy.
But let’s handle the whole thing like Brenk Sinatra does on his new instrumental only album. No need for words.
Gumbo II will be out on September 23rd. And you can listen to it (and buy it) here right away.
