Videodrome 109 – This week’s best videos
We’ve been spending the last couple of days at the amazing Berlin Atonal festival, where this little column found its exile in a West Berlin Video Loop—showcasing video beauties from the likes of Nick Cave, Neubauten, Malaria! or Valie Export.
Today we’re back on track following the unstoppable world of new, cool audiovisual entertainment. Get ready for Chance the Rapper, Lee Bannon, Appaloosa and many more.
#1 Lil Silva – “No Doubt” (Feat. Rosie Lowe)
19-year-old London based producer Lil Silva teases his upcoming four-track EP Distance with the unusually dreamy “No Doubt”.
#2 Appaloosa – “Fill the Blanks”
The Berlin/Paris duo Appaloosa set the bar pretty hugh this year with the amazing After Dark 2 album. And this track above is one of the many reasons why.
#3 Chance the Rapper – “Everybody’s Something”, directed by Austin Vesely
This guy is on the rise. “Everybody’s somebody’s everything / Nobody’s nothing.” Acid rap, it is.
#4 Cajmere & Free Magic – “Do Yo Thang”, directed by Ghostdad
New video for Cajmere featuring the Tachyons + Fun 21! Dance or die. Out via Discovery Recordings.
#5 Joel Compass – “Astronaut”
Here we have some cool, extraterrestrial R&B. Check out the talented Brit’s music video, before his Astronaut EP comes out September 2nd.
#6 Shy FX feat Liam Bailey – “Soon Come”
Don’t know if you are familiar with the importance of Shy FX for the jungle-lovers (at least in West Berlin). These days it sounds much more chilled. Try above.
#7 Lee Bannon – “Hyper/Eclipse”, self-edited
Beat maker Lee Bannon just released this kinda mysterious new video/song titled “Hyper/Eclipse”. For now, since they haven’t set a release date, enjoy the nostalgic clip above.
#8 Best Available Technology – “Tide Tunnels”, directed by Kevin Palmer
This is part four of the Bangers and Ash 12″ series for Styles Upon Styles, a label out of New York City. Hypnotic techno here wo go.
#9 HOLLAGRAMZ – “Chapel Perilous”, directed by Ian Glover
Creepy Denver duo HOLLAGRAMZ released their self-titled debut album already back in June via the Small Plate imprint. Now one of the staned-out tracks got a pretty dark, but fitting, video treatment.
#10 When Saints Go Machine – “System Of Unlimited Love”, directed by Nina Holmgren & Ronni Morgenstjerne
New music video for Copenhagen’s electronic quartet When Saints Go Machine presenting “System of Unlimited Love” taken off the band’s most recent LP Infinity Pool.~
