Video: Kelela – Rewind


The sensual, neon illuminated video for Kelela’s “Rewind” embodies the feeling of the song as an ‘End-of-Summer-Jam’ visualizing Kelela in sweltering, nocturnal settings as the sunny season slips away. As with most of Kelela’s work, “Rewind” is a beautiful duality of simultaneously bounce-fueled optimism and a deep yearning which gives it both it’s dancefloor heft and emotional complexity.

Kelela remains front-and-center commanding the viewer through subterranean sweatboxes and laser-lit ballrooms. The insistent energy of “Rewind” is one of many standout moments on Kelela’s Hallucinogen EP. In contrast to the psychotropic animation of “A Message,” the viewer gets a more direct, yet subtly uncanny representation of Kelela in her performative essence.

After being named Zane Lowe’s “World Record” on his acclaimed Beats Radio show, “Rewind” has proved to be a late summer essential stunning audiences everywhere from the incredible Afropunk Festivals to Opening Ceremony’s headline runway show at New York Fashion week, which featured it’s models breaking character to dance to the song for its whirlwind finale.

“Hallucinogen” EP is out October 9th 2015 on Warp Records.

KELELA – Rewind


I think there’s something particularly ‘Kelela’ about starting on a somber note;” this is how Kelela introduces her sublime, shape-shifting new EP, and in particular the cavernous tumble of its first song “A Message.” While the track continually falls to pieces and puts itself back together again, Kelela duets with a disembodied spectre of herself, recounting the emotional purgatory of a newly abandoned relationship. It’s more than an opening song, it is the moment that launches the narrative arc that is the backbone of the EP, titled Hallucinogen.

Co-produced by Kelela/Kingdom/Nugget, “Rewind” perfectly embodies the breathless euphoria of infatuation. Kelela steers some mutant form of Miami-bass-freestyle-electro to a sweaty basement rave where furtive companions lock eyes across a chaotic dance floor.

Video: Clark – Beacon


Clark has shared a new animated video for “Beacon,” taken from his recent self-titled LP on Warp. The video is created by visual artist and recent Monkeytown signee Matti Gajek: “Clark’s music to me is sublime and rough at the same time, so I was searching for images that mirror this quality: seemingly cold landscapes, otherworldly places, and a sense of timelessness… ‘Beacon’ has this beautiful emotional intensity which for me comes to the foreground more in the second part of the video with the portraits. There for the first time in the video something looks back at you.
