Videodrome #41 – This week’s best videos

Hey Videodrome lovers, here’s the latest edition of our weekly music video update, with new videos from Santigold, Dapayk & Padberg, ZZT, Jessie Ware, Pixelord and many more. Have fun:

#1 Santigold – Disparate Youth (dir.?)

I am with Santi: “No one wants to be real anymore. Wikipedia is always wrong. No one fact checks and it’s not even a priority. Reality TV is more popular than ever, and it’s the fakest thing ever. Where is there place for truth in all of that? My record is called Master of My Make-Believe because I want it to be about creating your own reality.”

Do you like close ups of nature happenings? Then this video might just be right up your alley. But this is a bit NSFW because we got some Adam and Eve business going on as well.

Incredible new video for the Hot City and LOL Boys collab track ‘Hot Boys’, featuring some sick 3D animations. Gotta check this out.

Since last year’s enormous Boiler Room appearance with Joker, Jessie is on my list. Now she’s just announced her new single ‘Running’ – and is promoting her Kate Moross-directed video.

Old tune? New video? Fashion video? Whatever, Alice Glass and Ethan Kath are nothing but the definition of badass.

///

#19 Metamono – XeF4 (dir.?)

If you’re into gerontology or geriatrics, then all you need is to turn to classic, grand scale theories of human development or simply watch this video from manifesto-driven music manipulators Metamono.

Wiley cancels Germany tour, rolls deep with Manga

Wiley cancels Germany tour, rolls deep with Manga There is this pretty good reason why we’re bringing cameras to our Electronic Beats Festivals: we want to remember stunning artists and their shows, and more importantly later on share them with you lot who couldn’t make it to the show. So when Wiley played EB Festival Warsaw in late 2011, we of course caught Eskiboy‘s performance on video – which is why you can now watch the recap in case you planned on going to one of his upcoming tour stops in support of his new, Big Dada released album Evolve Or Be Extinct. Earlier today, Wiley’s February live shows have been cancelled.

According to (and confirmed by) Wiley’s German concert promoter/booker Contra Promotion, all four Germany shows in Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig, and Cologne have been cancelled, no information on the reasons. All tickets will be refunded at the respective box office. Bitter, but still. Lean back, dry the tears and watch Wiley perform his tunes “Numbers In Action”, “Boom Blast”, and “Rolex”.

In releated news: Wiley just joined Roll Deep buddy and protégée Manga on the track ‘Hottie’, watch the video below:

Wiley Live (all shows cancelled):
February 29th 2012 Berlin, Festsaal Kreuzberg
March 1st 2012 Frankfurt a.M., Nachtleben
March 2nd 2012 Leipzig, Werk 2
March 4th 2012 Cologne, Die Werkstatt
