Venezuelan singer, Danny Ocean, releases a new music video for his single “Epa Wei.” The viewer is immediately introduced to three-screens and warm synths; Ocean’s vocals and a sharp Purpose-reminiscent production effort from Skrillex do the rest. With a variety of characters and scenes the video creates an expressive narrative that accents the new tune perfectly. Ocean’s catchy vocal melody is guided by Skrillex’s poppy soca rhythms, capped with a singalong-ready slang hook.
The song came together when Ocean received a surprise call Skrillex, and in a snap the pair found themselves in the studio tampering with fresh latin pop sounds, eventually merging styles on “Epa Wei’s” fluid, hip-swinging vibe. Combatting the bleak political and economic landscape of Venezuela, the positivity in this music video shows a bright side to a vibrant culture that has undeniable international appeal.
Taking the good from the old and bringing it into a modern context is easier said than done. I love to find this kind of music when the artist really pulls it off.

Earlier this year, ZHU and Tame Impala released “My Life,” one of the most anticipated and acclaimed collaborations of 2018. Looking to add even more intrigue to the psychedelic track, the artists have now released a stunning music video featuring none other than Willow Smith.
The video begins with Smith at the scene of a fatal car accident before flashing back to the story of her relationship with the victim. A picturesque tale of two romances unfolds, leading the timeline back to just moments before the crash.
The emotional video comes at the same time as an seven-track remix album for the heartfelt song, featuring Kyle Watson‘s dark house take on the collaboration. Artists like Just A Gent and KRANE each give the song an energetic electronic flair with their remixes, while Klangstof brings a subtle indie vibe into the mix. With a slew of remixes and a powerful video, this new-classic will have some serious staying power for years to come.
Things get weird at a Carnival in DallasK‘s latest music video for single “Recover.” The track is a part of his forthcoming EP, which will span a variety of genres. Each track will be connected by the fact that the producer is the vocalist on the song. DallasK spoke to DA about the new video, describing how the carnival concept was a total accident.
“The Recover video came together completely by accident when we stumbled on an empty carnival and I think it completely matches the almost spooky yet energetic vibe of the song. I’m so excited for you all to see it” — DallasK
Camera shots pan in on DallasK with psychedelic carnival scenes in the background giving the viewer a million things to look at. Meanwhile, the video uses the producer himself as the steadying visual force throughout.

After the release of his sophomore EP in April 2018, Philadelphia-based producer Instupendo now released an accompanying visual accompaniment. The EP’s four tracks each received their own distinct video, filmed and directed by the group Altabrea, who previously worked with the artist for the video to his single “Homme” and produced visuals for his performance at Brooklyn Steel in support of Rostam.
The visuals match well with Instupendo’s dreamy, mellifluous style, with montages that evoke the optimism and melancholy, the youthful possibilities with the nostalgia that are readily apparent in the EP.
On working with Altabrea again, Instupendo said, “James Ronkko and Alice Agrusa are two of my favorite film-makers. They’re lovely people to work with and I appreciate and trust their aesthetic. I was excited to see how they’d interpret the EP.”
The visual for Faces I Know‘s second track, “Sunny,” is available above, with the entire visuals, hosted by Majestic Casual, available below.
The tune’s new visual narrative begins with our protagonist mourning the loss of his beloved feline friend. To alleviate his pain, he seeks new companionship in an otter. That’s right…a sea otter who can sing the infectious high note accents that made this song such an inescapable earworm. And who doesn’t love an otter? The slick little fella helps his new buddy secure bags, make new friends, and even dominate the record charts — you know, as otters typically do. However, all good things must come to an end as the otter’s good will eventually runs out.
