Local artist Outputmessage has been kind enough to share with us the new video for his infectiously melodic track “Heisenberg (Magic Power Mix),” shot right here in the District. The stunning video is directed, filmed and edited by the artist himself and proves that the man is one of multiple talents. You can find the track on Outputmessage’s recent Look at All the Possibilities EP, available at all fine digital music retailers.
DC’s own Funkdamentalist is gearing up to release his forthcoming 3-track EP Exposed tomorrow on Something Different Records. Appealing to house heads, purists and vinyl lovers alike with its old school sampled house feel, Exposed (especially the title track) provides a soundtrack to what 90′s dreams are made of. The second track, appropriately titled “The Grind,” is a deep house burner built around 90s piano chord stabs and quirky vocals.
U.K.’s Werner Niedermeier is on remix duty for title track “Exposed” adding an infectious climbing bassline rendering a funkier version of the original, while keeping the deeper elements intact making it a real dancefloor groover.
Watch the official video for “Exposed” and preview the entire EP below -
One of Berlin’s finest dance producers over the past two decades, Ellen Allien’s abstract video comes with the release of her new single “Take Me Out.” The hypnotic tones match the florescent lighting seen in the video. Sillouettes of girls dancing become mirrored and juxtaposed between spinning images of Ellen, herself. Similar minimal, linear chord progressions to her previous “Sehnsucht” have manufactured the track into another Ellen Allien single.
Watch the video for “Take Me Out” below. The single, part of the Galactic Horse EP, is out now. Buy it on Beatport.
