Skrillex’s “Bangarang”


I think Sonny-boy here has some people making fucking fantastic videos for him. Along with the video for “First Of The Year”, the director Tony T. is doing some wonderful work.

The video features a group of young boys holding up an ice cream truck and their eventual transformation into hardened thieves…with heart. AWwwwwwww so cute! Enjoy.

Skrillex’s “First of the Year (Equinox)”

Look, Mr. Rapist, we all know that you only wanted to ask her if the rag smelled like chloroform, but you picked the wrong psychic demon girl to try and force yourself upon. Now, you’ll never force yourself on anyone again.

Obviously inspired by Chris Cunningham’s “Come to Daddy” video, this video is one of the slickest pieces I’ve seen in a while (forgiving the dodgy demon CG at points). Certainly, when I think of Dubstep (Brostep, really), these sorts of visuals are what comes to mind: wet, cityscapes, green, darkness, grit. It’s a point I’ve discussed before.

I hope Skrillex gets the opportunity to make more videos like this. It is really, really cool.

Rusko’s “Everyday”

I want to like this, but I don’t. I don’t like it at all. I’m not sure if it’s the weird, not-quite-working mixture of trance and brostep and some weird world/Juno Reactor shit in the track or if it is the utterly contentless music video with visuals that could be neat but are really just boring me to tears. And what the hell does Rusko, a British producer, have anything to do with people living on what looks like the California/Arizona border? Nothing. And the giant lightbulb sign in the desert? Neat, but who cares? That is really what this whole video boils down to: a giant pile of “who cares?” The youtube description notes that they shot it on the Arri Alexa. WHO CARES? I’d rather have had them shoot on a VHS-C camcorder and make something coherent.

Granted, it was photographed nicely. I will give it that.

Am I being too harsh? Whatever. This video kind of sucks. Maybe I’m just in a funky mood and being a dick.

Rusko & Reso’s “Lick The Lizard”

Everyone’s favorite British brostep producer Rusko is back with this collaboration with Reso from Rusko’s forthcoming single for “Everyday/Lick The Lizard”. The video is filled with enough lovely classic J-horror footage to brighten up even this fine, rainy, gray, horrible New York City day. Enjoy, humans.
