While our dedicated zero" video channel on vodpod is patiently awaiting a bugfix by the vodpod team (should be any day now, or so we've been promised), we take the opportunity to highlight some fine additions to our video library right here on our blog.
First up is the Gomma camp with Munk's latest single, 'Mis Labios'. The track's video - see above - has been directed by Paze & Maceo & Decker & Schünke and focuses the action entirely on Joyce Muniz's good-looking pair of lips. The Austrian-Brazilian DJ and producer not only shows off her looks however, but has also contributed vocals to the track as well as a fine set of remixes to its single release.
Next in line is Agoria's Infiné label with two very different but equally recommendable new videos: We have all been excited about the comeback of Rone with his recent single 'So So So'. The Parisian producer's lush and melodic techno style has been nicely visualised by Studio Fünf with a hand-drawn animation clip.
In addition, Infiné's mysterious experimentalist Arandel receives a fittingly artistic visual treatment by EcceStudio. The Roman video crew, comprised of Alice Lioniello and Sandro Moscosiori, translates Sinner DC's remix of 'In D#3' into a series of moving images that play with the medium of film itself: overexposing it, writing directly on it, and in the end even burning it.
Our next and final video is Migren's 'Dust Cat', taken off his/her brand-new (and zero" exclusive) EP 'The Least Possible' for Temp Records. Created by Austrian video artist Orjo the video incidentally explores a similar theme to EcceStudio's Arandel clip. Not only has Migren likewise chosen to remain anonymous, but also does the track's visualisation expose the materiality of another visual medium: television.
In conjunction with Migren's fragile electronica/dubtechno crossover sounds the video's interlaced feedback loops create a hauntingly futuristic, almost Bladerunner-esque atmosphere. Keeping the camera fixed on the screen the whole time the video conveys a sense of claustrophobia while being strangely compelling and hypnotic.
High-resolution versions of all videos are included with the respective releases:
