In this edition of the Music Video Addiction, we have a bunch of brand new videos and one classic video. We hope you enjoy this week’s edition, and make sure to share and / or leave a comment if you enjoy.
Graham Coxon: What’ll It Take – cool, new track by Graham w/ great editing and cgi.
Adult.: In My Nerves – an older track by the band but still love it.
Orbital: Wonky – this is like Jingle Cats but takes it 10 steps further.
Simian Mobile Disco: Cerulean – the SMD boys are back with a new vid.
The Rapture: In The Grace Of Your Love – their latest video.
2:54: You’re Early – this one reminds me of Curve.
Thanks for watching this edition. Pop back in again next week for more music vids and look back in the archives for older editions since we post every Sunday.
The Rapture have released the remixes of their “How Deep Is Your Love” single which includes a remix,“Dub for Mehdi,” a reworking by A-Trak. It is a very fitting head nod to A-Trak’s long-time friend, late producer DJ Mehdi, whose recent death came as a huge loss and shock for the dance music community. The Montreal born DJ remembers how the single was influenced by Mehdi before his passing.
“When I was close to finishing [this remix], I played it to my friend, the irreplaceable DJ Mehdi. I was working on the main version of the remix, the vocal version. I knew I would make a few alternate edits during the mixdown. The funny thing was, Mehdi’s favorite part was the ending! He…suggested that I have that part come in earlier. My reaction was: that would work well for the dub version. And sure enough, when I finished mixing it down I made a dub with [his] suggestion. When I sent it to Mehdi shortly after, he responded (as a joke) that I should call it “Dub For Mehdi.” This one’s for you Memed.”
The Populette remix takes up the b-side of the single. It is out now through DFA Records and can be purchases in the DFA webstore.
This week, The Rapture debuted their first official music video since 2007 for the new single Sail Away. The video directed by Kris Moyes sees lead singer Luke Jenner riding a giant potato chip bag down the streets of New York. Weird and wonderful.
