Check FG alumnus Kid Cudi, Bethany from Best Coast and Rostam from Vampire Weekend romping around in giant paper heads in the video for “All Summer,” a track they collaborated on for Converse’s new ad campaign (the same one that brought Kid Sister to a subway near you last summer). Download the mp3 here.
If you missed the festival debut of Duck Sauce (featuring A-Trak, Armand Van Helden, and…an enormous inflatable duck) at EDC, fret not: Trizzy has you covered with this great video recap and pics from the night, along with some shots from his Travis x A-Trak performance at the same fest.
For more DS action, you can finally grab their perennial summer jam “aNYway” in North America:
For the inaugural edition of Scion A/V’s music video series, Fool’s Gold represented with Congorock’s “Babylon.”. Their newest batch of videos hits iTunes next week, featuring a brand-new clip for Kingdom’s “Mind Reader,” directed by Kari Altmann (aka blackmoth.org).
Kingdom and Kari have worked together on numerous live visuals and other graphic projects in the past, so it was only natural that they would come together to forge an impressionistic world for “Mind Reader.” The fractured visuals of their collaboration turn nightclub flashes into a moody, mystic vortex, and provide a perfect counterpoint to the hyperkinetic synth riffs and soaring diva vocals of Shyvonne.
“Mind Reader” will also be airing on MTV2, starting with a premier July 8th at 8pm EST. To preview the other Scion A/V videos in the series, check this trailer. And of course, pick up Kingdom’s “Mind Reader” single on alldigitaloutlets and vinyl 12″!
In the midst of their Scion Radio tour supporting the just-released Black Billionaires EP, our friends Mehdi and Riton of Carte Blanche dropped into Webster Hall in NYC for a solo date, and brought along our own Kid Sister to rock their collab “Do! Do! Do!” live for the kids. Check Nicky Digital’s vid above, and pics from the night here.
As mentioned earlier, the launch party for the Project is this weekend in NYC featuring our own Nacho Lovers and a bounty of other amazing acts. If you missed the RSVP, don’t fret, we’re going to be involved in future CP events around the globe. Stay tuned!
Nacho Lovers’ “Deeper” is rapidly making its way into the nether-regions of the world’s consciousness: Fader and Pitchfork props (“Don’t let that sorta-stupid name fool you: Toronto duo Nacho Lovers make seriously cavernous house music”), an appearance on this great new mix by NYC favorites House Of House, Twitter shout-outs, a Nylon appearance courtesy of A-Trak… and now an appropriately aquatic video put together by Adam Beck and Paul Johnston of Members Only. Full fathom five!
For more from the dynamic duo, check their new Beatport chart and be sure to hit up their “Deeper” release party if you’re in Toronto this Saturday (6/5), featuring sets from Nacho Lovers alongside “Deeper” remixers Azari & III.
Following a gallery tour across the US, Dust La Rock’s “Occult Of Personality” video project finally makes it’s way home to BK (along with the rest of Scion’s Installation 6) launching at Eastern District on Friday, June 4th. Full details here, and for a taste of what’s in store check this teaser / interview vid.
