Video: This is Belgium Part Two: Cherry Moon On Valium [Gabber slowed down to 115 bpm]

Gotta love Soulwax for their work on this one. From the description:

Even though these Belgian records sound very “now”, they are actually 20 years old and were meant to be played at a much, much faster speed. At the time this was the devil’s music for us, but we have learned to listen through the claps and distorted kicks and discovered that if you slow these really dark and heavy techno records down all the way to about 115 bpm, it suddenly makes them sound less frantic, ballsier and a lot sexier. Belgium at its best when pitched down.

Kassem Mosse

I first heard of Kassem Mosse (real name Gunnar Wendel) while watching him play live on Boiler Room TV in Berlin a few weeks back. I had originally planned to watch Redshape, but I got the times mixed up (and thankfully so). I was immediately taken aback hearing Kassem’s set. Ambient, acid, techno? I couldn’t pin down his sound. His bio says it best: “Mosse has carved out a unique time-warped sound that many have tagged as too slow for traditional techno but too sparse for house.”

You can watch his hour-long set HERE (watching the Berliners get down in the background always makes for a good time) or listen to the full set HERE. And while I’m at it, here’s some of my favorite tunes of his:

WhoMadeWho’s “Every Minute Alone” Music Video

I just saw WhoMadeWho‘s music video for the original “Every Minute Alone.” Can’t wait to hear the entire album!

Kenton Slash Demon “Daemon” Music Video

Yes! When I first listened to the previews a few weeks back, I was slightly underwhelmed but kept my reservations to myself in hopes that the shorter clips weren’t doing the songs justice. Well, that’s exactly what has happened. Really enjoying Daemon, it’s sure to be a hit this summer.

Justice x Adidas x Romain Gavras

I’ve been annoyed with Justice for quite some time. There’s no doubt they’re currently France’s second best musical export (behind Daft Punk), but Jesus, they could not have milked any harder. Either way, they have a lot of hype to live up to. This single off of their Sophomore album “Civilization” (due for release in April) is awesome, and is giving me really high hopes. At first I was upset to see Justice selling out before even releasing their new album. But after seeing the video, I could not be happier. Romain Gavras can visualize music like no other – this is probably the best video for audio editing I have ever seen. Hands down.

Music Video Of The Year: Caribou’s “Sun”

Quite a coincidence for a repeat post on Caribou, but I just watched the music video: it’s absolutely brilliant! Haven’t seen anything quite like it – it speaks for itself.

After watching it a few times: Sun was the first song I heard off of Swim, and remains one of my favorites today. I’m usually pretty hesitant about music videos, especially for electronic music, but this is perfect. It adds a whole new dimension of unsaid emotion to the tune without overdoing it or trying to outdo the song. I’ve never actually gotten goosebumps to a music video until now: the way the male dancers come in after the drop is incredible.
