There are very few people we love more than the DFA crew, and especially Nancy Whang. Her vocals are the companion to so many timeless tracks—not to mention she’s fun, spunky awesome (and any other adjectives I can throw out there). Needless to say a video accompaniment to Shit Robot’s “Do That Dance” is the perfect thing to get Friday feeling right and to get us excited for Shit Robot’s upcoming sophomore LP due out March 18th. The track is classic DFA disco, brimming with fractured funk and groove galore, and the video features Whang busting a move over footage of old soccer games. What’s not to like?
Hot on the heels of his Asteroids EP, Outputmessage is back with a new video for the lead single off his upcoming album, The Infinite Void. “Goldilocks Zone” fits perfectly with the space theme, building a dense soundscape with gorgeous atmospherics, echoed vocals, and light guitar accents. The video is hazy and dreamlike, focusing on a silhouette of Farley dancing is a smoke filled room while a series of neon lights cascade around him. It’s soft and sensual and the perfect midweek escape. You can also grab a free download of the track HERE.
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.
