Velour Modular – Struck / Turpentine (Prod. by Phon.o)
Cr2U are proud to present visual artist and singer/songwriter Velour Modular to the fold with her 2 track single – Struck / Turpentine. The first of a 2 part release, which sees a further 2 track release later this year, this collection of 4 tracks has been produced by respected Berlin-based producer and long time collaborator phon.o (50 Weapons, Boyz Noize).
DIRECTED BY CESAR LOVE ALEXANDRE:
“STRUCK is a story about camboys, boys that get « tokens », virtual money, by filming themselves doing various types of activities the viewers asked them to do. It is about the relationship our generation entertains with technology, especially concerningself-image. Our main character is a camboy, who’s filming his entire life through his computer. It’s about his relation to this activity and how it slowly evolves from being just for fun to being an actual transaction, a job. It also explores the ideas of gender, sexual orientation, and stereotypes that are evolving nowadays and becoming blurry, through the freedom of expression and exhibition internet offers.”
After bursting onto the underground scene with her debut EP – gaining support from the likes of Noisey/Vice, The Guardian, The Line of Best Fit, along with Radio 1 plays and support from the fashion/visual art blog tastemakers such as Hunger Magazine and Wonderland – it’s clear that the partnership with phon.o will pack a punch once again and the deep, dark and moody sounds of Struck & Turpentine will resonate throughout.
