DJ Snake releases adorable pixel version of hit music video for ‘Taki Taki’Taki Taki Piel

DJ Snake is not done with his “Taki Taki,” which came out earlier in the fall, just yet. The Latin pop crossover number with Cardi B, Selena Gomez, and Ozuna was an instant global hit, shooting straight to the top of the charts worldwide. Its accompanying music video was originally premiered and released during the American Music Awards back in October, and it has since become the ninth fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views.

The artists have now teamed up for a pixelated version of the hit music video. It follows the same story lines and visual concepts as the original, but showcases them through lego-like animated characters. The pixel video has already hit 1.1 million views in less than 24 hours, demonstrating that views will not be in short supply for “Taki Taki’s” animated video sibling either.

 

Justice enlist full marching band for new ‘Heavy Metal’ visual

Justice are closing out 2018 on a considerable hot streak. The French luminaries recently capped off a momentous world tour, they are hot off the heels of a Grammy nomination for Woman Worldwideand now they’ve dropped off a brilliantly concepted new video by director Filip Nilsson for “Heavy Metal” — a standout from 2016’s Woman, and an ensuing staple in their live sets since.

The new feature is a fittingly complementary visual accent to “Heavy Metal’s” suspenseful, winding build. Enlisting Norfolk State University’s Spartan Legion marching band, one of the premier college marching bands in the country, Justice sonics can be experienced unlike they’ve ever been before, performed in a choreographed march routine. The video intersperses Justice’s version and the Spartans’ live version into one syncopated hybrid. Justice already makes music fit for arenas, but performed by a marching band takes the duo to a new space entirely, and the result is captivating. Says Nilsson,

“I came across a clip of this marching band from Norfolk in Virgina over a year ago. I immediately knew that these guys had something special and that wanted to make a music video with them one day. Months passed and then suddenly the Heavy Metal track by Justice came my way. We contacted the the marching band leader, William Beathea, and it felt like we all knew at that point that we had to make this work. I wanted his marching band of 220 people to play the track as well as create a customized choreography. We knew it would be far from easy to pull it off. It was a very strong and emotional experience working with these musicians and dancers.”

Now that The Prodigy have released their full 10-track studio album, No Tourists, the group has been supplementing their monumental release with a steady stream of remixes and music videos for its various singles. The newest addition to these ancillary products is the music video for “Timebomb Zone.”

Music video is as grizzly as the song it comes with. Much like gritty synthesizers and purring bass battle each other in the song, the visual accompaniment depicts a chaotic fighting scene that ends in a positively brutal manner. The tale that unfolds is truly David and Goliath-esque, with an unexpected fighting ring win being carried out by a petite woman before an explosive ending.

No Tourists is the seventh straight studio album the band has released to hit number one.

Marshmello and Bastille release alternate version of ‘Happier’ music video

Marshmello and Bastille pivot away from the tear-jerking story of a girl and her dog in their release of an alternate version of the “Happier” music video. What they’ve come up with is something even more uplifting, albeit, quirky. It plays out like an animated slideshow, showcasing the artists and their work on the song rather than involving a specific storyline. Marshmello can be seen playing multiple instruments as sort of a one-man band, accompanying Dan Smith as he sings along. Per the masked DJs general odd aesthetic, the video makes sure to include a number of oddities that make for a more entertaining watch; including a cameo by some floating graham crackers. Where he and his team find inspiration for such things, we’ll never know — but props to them for a colorful alternative ending!

RUFFMERCY wields animation wizardry in video for DJ Snake & Mercer’s ‘Let’s Get Ill’

Something of an anthem was born in DJ Snake and Mercer‘s invigorating future house smash, “Let’s Get Ill.” It only makes sense, then, that the powerhouse collaborators behind the tune would tap the talents of RUFFMERCY in fashioning a music video worthy of their brainchild’s madness. The animator boasts some strong credentials, boasting a resume that includes projects for Thom Yorke and Flying Lotus.

In “Let’s Get Ill,” RUFFMERCY brings the colorful track to life with equally vibrant visuals that fit in well with the graffiti-laden enclaves of Paris where it was filmed. The animations dance along with the real life breakdancers in the video, who do well in tying together the gritty urban aesthetic presented within. It might be difficult to not want to get on the floor and join them by the end, especially given the track’s hollowed, jacking house kicks and commanding vocals.

Watch Gesaffelstein make his spectacular return with menacing new ‘Reset’ video

Watch Gesaffelstein make his spectacular return with menacing new ‘Reset’ videoGesaffelstein Shadow

The time has finally come. 

The world has been watching him since the billboards arose in late October, but the wait has been far longer, and far more arduous for a majority of his fans. Indeed, this cryptic campaign began almost five years to the date since dance music’s most sinister figure proffered his debut album, Aleph. In the years since, he’s made only intermittent appearances in the lives of his devotees, releasing no music whatsoever apart from production credits for Kanye West and The Weeknd, the score to a French thriller film, and a sole collaboration with fellow French luminary Jean-Michel Jarre.

Since he famously retired the black marble altar at Coachella 2015, audiences have sought ceaselessly to fill the void that he left. In an attempt to do so, leagues of aspiring dance music necromancers have endeavored to mold themselves in his fashion; and, while the results of such missions are often pleasurable, they will always, inevitably, be but middling simulacra in the face of the original. Thankfully, now, with “Reset,” the abyss is no more.

“Reset” might be more than the presumed lead single of an impending new album from Gesaffelstein. The track comes with a video that seems to take aim at a certain polarizing rapper, and could perhaps be the beginning of a more pointed commentary from the principal of techno and hip-hop’s intersection.

At long last, Gesaffelstein has returned.

CloZee releases purposeful video to accompany ‘Spiral’CloZee Spiral Artwork

French experimentalist, CloZee, recently released her worldly sophomore album, Evasion, which takes listeners on a sonic journey inspired by the artist’s extensive travel, interlaced with soul-baring reflection that comes to life through the intricate arrangement of sounds and songs. One of the most intricate and widely received tracks off the album is “Spiral,” which CloZee has released a captivating music video to accompany.

The music video follows the story lines of two women. Viewers watch as an athletic woman goes boxing, delivering hit after hit to a punching bag. Another woman then takes the spotlight as she does her makeup and heads out to go dancing at a club. The story lines intersect as the woman who was boxing ultimately washes off and heads to the club, where the two women meet and leave together. The story is testimony of dance music’s inexorable ability to bring people together–even in the most unlikely of circumstances.

Ed Banger Records commemorates watershed 15th anniversary with orchestral collectionED BANGER 15 ANS p 1

Ed Banger Records has summoned a most lustrous lineup for their milestone 15th year in rotation, with symphonic assistance from fellow Frenchmen, the 70-piece Orchestre Lamoureux.

Including sightings from Ed Banger emblems like Mr. Oizo, Justice, and longtime label-head, Busy P, the album, Ed Banger 15 Ans, is an instrumental conflation of some of the labels most celebrated tracks, performed entirely sans electronic equipment. Busy P enlisted his aptly adept comrade and accomplished film score composer, Thomas Roussel to conduct the album’s performance at the Parisian Grand Rex this past March.

To accompany the momentous release, Ed Banger has mashed up some of the label’s most memorable video releases, with the visually retrospective “I Want My Ed Tv,” which includes clips from Busy P’s own “Genie,” Boston Bun‘s “Paris Groove,” and Justice’s “Fire,” with the tracks’ respective audio paired accordingly. The album is now widely available across streaming platforms, with limited edition vinyl and CD/digital versions also available for purchase.
