Check out the new music video for the opening track off of MGMT’s sophomore album, entitled “It’s Working.” Directed by French graphic designer So Me, the video is both less disturbing than the “Kids” video and less trippy than the “Time to Pretend” video. Fear not though, because that’s actually not a bad thing. So Me’s creation is interesting enough without monsters and acid trips.
Stumbled across this gem today from Pitchfork. It’s Big Boi (of Outkast fame) freestyling over one of Crystal Castles’ new tracks, “Empathy.” It’s cool to hear that famous voice freestyle over such a different type of beat. Watch the video.
Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known by his stage name Diplo, is one of the hottest DJs/producers in the hip-hop/dance-funk genre today. To most people, he’s known for producing the 2007 smash hit single “Paper Planes” by M.I.A. But to others, he is one half of the collaborative side-project Major Lazer with fellow DJ Switch. Diplo is also owner of the Mad Decent record label, which has signed such artists as Blaqstarr, Boy 8-bit, Crookers, Rusko, and Toy Selectah.
Recently, Diplo sat down for an interview with Creators Project at Bob Marley’s legendary recording studio down in Jamaica. Check it out.
