Videodrome 108 – This week’s best videos
Although I’ve been busy watching a ton of old video footage from early West Berlin happenings in order to prepare my video loop for the upcoming Atonal, lucky for you I’ve also found time to keep up with the latest audiovisual developments too. Have fun with clips from Big K.R.I.T., Hyetal, Holy Ghost! and many more.
