Video from our show with A$AP Rocky at the Corona Theatre, in Montreal on January 29, 2012. Vid features the harlem hero killing the sold out show with 'Wassup', 'Demons', 'Purple Swag', 'Bass.'
Shout to Handlebar for the insane footage and editing.
There's something about this abandoned NYC atrium that amplifies Small Black's sunbleached electro-surf melodies. In any case, the amount of sound that comes out of these four guys is astounding. Props for the old school Casio keyboards.
Phenomenal Handclap Band's latest video is a display of lush cinematography fused with dark thematic undertones. It's just under three minutes, giving an ironic take on the saying "short but sweet." Somewhat slower than most Phenomenal Handclap songs, "Baby" is a soulful ballad with an electronic tinge, but stays true to the band's psychedelic sound. The video draws heavily from Italian horror film director Dario Argento, which explains both the gory finale and the cool-factor.
So, in honor of the 20th anniversary release of Lenny Kravitz's "Let Love Rule," Justice reworked the track into a pop&lock paradise. Three months later, director Keith Schofield gets his hands on the project and makes a video for the song. The video holds up to the high standard set by the French duo's previous music videos. Kanye has yet to weigh in...
There is no way that anyone is adequately prepared for the Red Bull MegaHurtz Pop Montreal Show at Club Just For Laughs Thursday, October 1. Just to be clear, this will not be a normal show. This will be an overstimulating shot of adrenaline served straight through the eye, ear, and breastplate. It will only hurt a little but it's guaranteed to hurt so good!
Let's break down the logistics:
9 different artists, including acts like Megasoid, Grahmzilla, and Baretta, will take their turns at trying to blow out Club Just For Laughs' extensive sound system. Red Bull MegaHurtz aims to allow the forward-thinking artist to push the idea of live performance far past the typical set: 2 CDJ players and a pioneer 800 mixer.
Take a look at the Synced Visual Show by Nosaj Thing that is set to make its WORLD PREMIERE on October 1 at the Megahurtz:
Likewise, the audience should experience a new expression of “electronic music” (house, techno, indie, nudisco, dubstep, electro, trance….), one that bends genres and senses in a unique display of creativity and technology. The result will be a high voltage, live event for the ears, eyes and mind.
Yes, there will be a visual component, but this ain't the dorky light show your weird 4th grade teacher with the harelip made you go on a field trip for. The MegaHurtz A/V experience is an unprecedented foray into what can be done visually in a live setting - literally.
After hearing those tunes supplemented by those visuals, we dare you to try to hold back. Lunice, MTL's own Street Bass pioneer, knows how to handle the MegaHurtz. After and before his set, don't be surprised to see these moves on the dancefloor:
If you see him, just give the man his space and let him go! Lunice's Lazerremix Vol. 2 drops this Saturday September 26. Stay posted!Read Less ↑
