Gods, millionaires and pure abstraction

I like posting music videos – it doesn’t require a whole lot of writing, it attracts a lot of readers and it’s always interesting to sort of match the music and the visualizations, to see if the video complements the track or is it more like a mini-film that uses the song as soundtrack (not...

Wagon Christ – Toomorrow

nullA strange record that seems to be almost purposefully unappealing at first listen. Filled with funky drums and retro-futuristic samples dumped on top of never-ending and never-progressing loops of spacey synths, Toomorrow is a puzzling mess, for which any sort of commercial distribution seems impossible, because the only place you would want to listen to...

The Electric Dragon Sword

The Rift is big. Huge. Enormous. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. A quick sweep through its surface in search of new videos returned very satisfying results – all coming from different corners of trip-hop galaxy. Tune up your telescopes. Sexy-sexy.

The best part? They are FREE to download. Enjoy while they last: DJ Food –...

Amon Tobin – Esther’s (video)

Better late than never: most of you have already seen the new Amon Tobin music video for “Esther’s”. But maybe some of you haven’t yet. Either way, I think you’ll enjoy it. The song is excruciatingly good, and the video is creative and beautiful. The ending is a bit cheesy for my taste, but I...

Ninja Tune: a visual history

The National Student did its homework and put together a killer compilation of classic music videos from Ninja Tune‘s finest warriors in celebration of the label’s upcoming 20th birthday. A very nice and entertaining way to fill the blanks in your trip-hop education. I’m just gonna drop some names: Coldcut, Funki Porcini, Amon Tobin, Bonobo,...
