Videodrome 97: This week’s best videos

Your weekly music video round-up is back on track with some marvellous new videos from the likes of Holy Sons, PANTEROS666, Postiljoen, and many more to explore.


#1 Skaters – “Armed”, directed by Danilo Parra

NY bad boy Skaters just dropped a cool new video for their b-side of their 7″ single debut “I Wanna Dance (But I Don’t Know How)”.


#2 Polar Lights feat. Sergey Khlebalin – “Efir and dust”, directed by Alexander Podoprigorov

New nature video for Polar Lights, filmed in a bloody atmospheric environment which surprisingly suits the housey sax track very well.


#3 Postiljoen – “Surpreme”, directed by Ty Olson

Electro-pop can be quite a strange genre, but with Postiljoen you are definitely on the right path. This springtime anthem entitled “Supreme” is out on Hybris now.


#4 Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou – “Houzou Houzou Wa”

I’ve got to admit that my feedreader, erm twitter consists of a lot of African blogs. One I can recommend to you is Analog Africa, where I found this pearl from the upcoming Analog Africa No.13 sampler The Skeletal Essences of Afro Funk 1969 – 1980, out this month.


#5 Major Lazer feat Busy Signal, The Flexican & FS Green – “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”, directed by Jay Will

Man, what kind of run does Major Lazer have? Is there any mainstream society which rejects these kind of pop big-beat tunes? Looks like their upcoming album Free the Universe will be a worldwide success.



Piano-house? Adamski? Liveanddirect? Nope. It’s a banger by upcoming french producer Victor Watel aka Panteros666. Out on Brodinski’s Bromance Records.


#7 Holy Sons – “Aged Wine”

Emil Amos unveiled this video for the bonus track from his one-man project Holy Sons. The album My Only Warm Coals is out on April 23rd on Important Records.


#8 Nicki Minaj – “Up in Flames”, direcetd by Grizz Lee

In this latest Minaj-video for “Up in Flames”, taken from her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, we learn that Nicki can play the piano and knows how to drive a motorbike. Which is news. Don’t you think?


#9 King Midas Sound – “Funny Love”

First, King Midas Sound announce they were signing to Ninja Tune, and now there’s this beat-less beast called “Funny Love”. Waiting for more.


#10 Russell M. Harmon – “Tragedy Fractures”, directed by Gregory Hoepffner

If you are wondering what we can expect from the ambient genre, I highly recommend Russell M. Harmon.~
