When “Bugatti,” Tiga’s rhythmic and absurd exploration into the quells of the dance underworld, came out this summer, nobody was expecting it to take off the way it did. Defying genre altogether to create a new plateau that’s undeniably idiosyncratic and unlike anything else being churned out by the Dance Gods, “Bugatti” was a testament to how going against the grain can pay off in spades.
The music video released last week is just as bizarre and unexpected. Featuring a dizzying amount of 80s inspired imagery and kitsch from the fashion to the set design, the music video for “Bugatti” is a roller coaster that feels like it was manufactured in Andy Warhol’s Factory right down to the emphasis on vintage ski wear. The most fascinating aspect of the video, however, is how accurately it captures the track’s feeling of escalation as the focus on surrealism becomes more frantic and brinks on insanity (the most disturbing, surprisingly, being a waterfall of Heinz ketchup).
Check out the music video below and be sure to download “Bugatti.”
LA duo, Bleitch, just debuted the video for their single, “This Is Out Youth,” and the visual companion is equally as dreamy as the track itself. The video follows the duo through a series of vignettes ultimately resulting in a late night beach party. It shares a sense of epicness with the song that translates easily over the synthwave soundscape and indie pop vocals to make for an enjoyable view. Check it out below:
Outputmessage has just released the first video in support of The Infinite Void. One of our favorite tracks for the album, “Pillars” is a sprawling sci-fi flavored house trip that manages to make you dance while feeling the way deep space would sound. It’s an impressive track in itself, but when paired with a visual companion, it takes on a whole new life. Consisting of a series of constantly evolving motifs, the video plays with light and images to draw you in to a seemingly dark and sensual landscape that fits the track perfectly. Hit play before and keep an eye out for the Infinite Void remix package coming this October!
Henry Krinkle is back with a new original, and he stays strong to the unbelievably sexy vibes he cooked up with his remix of Hot Toddy’s “Down To Love.” Lush pads, twisted R&B vocals, and a deep house low end make for a late night summer vibe that’s hard to pass up. The video is a nice collection of images that proves itself as hot as the song itself. With Krinkle cooking up tracks like this there is a definite need for more and as soon as possible!
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?
