Song / Video of the Day: Wennink – Dissolve
February 18, 2017 by riotwashere in Music 0 Comments

“Dissolve” has been haunting me for a few weeks now.  Every time that sombre piano hits after the initial glitch, I find my mood instantly resets. I give sole focus to the song every single time.  I mean hell, “Dissolve” made me get on here and write this, that’s the power within it. It’s stunning, clever, thought provoking and pulls you into another dimension, where only you and the song exist for a moment. “Dissolve” makes me reflect on me and my day, rather than focusing on anyone else or even the song itself (and the intricacies contained within it) – it’s happy to just take me on a journey.  So my day huh? Today, I got the Santa Cruz blue hand with the mouth inside it tattooed on me and it looks rad, I worked all day (still am) and I’m currently waiting on the second burrito from Essex Taco in the Lower East Side on busy Friday night, within one hour, because it was that divine – I also just got called to check I actually wanted the second burrito!  It’s the first time Seamless and I have done express re-order and it’s dangerous. I was going to just put “Dissolve” up as […]

Song / Video of the Day: “Half Below” by TEPR
October 12, 2016 by riotwashere in Film, Music 0 Comments

We’re always on the look out for a good track to work too. If you get the right song, where you just can’t help but jive with it, then you’re golden. You’re inspired, your ass is moving back and forth in the seat – you’re just generally far more happy with your current situation because of that song. Well “Half Below” by TEPR is our latest “song to work to” gem that we discovered and just can’t get enough of. We were so inspired in fact that we also put together some of our own imagery inspired by listening to the song on loop. We recommend you listen to the song a bunch of times before actually moving on to the video at all. Fall in love with the song first and the video gives you this awesome addition to something you weren’t sure could get better. The song version is 5:55 in length, whereas the video version is just a minuscule 2:14 – although it packs a massive punch in that short time with some fantastic inspiring visuals that are unique, well done and funny (our favorite being the skull kitting himself with his bones as if he is […]

Video Of The Day: Ages – Chances feat. Johannes Eder
September 5, 2016 by riotwashere in Film 0 Comments

The xx originated that, modern echoey, ethereal guitar tone that they always use but when “Chances” starts you would swear you were about to listen to a The xx track. Not the case though, this song doesn’t go that way at all, Ages end up using it in a more dance music oriented way that works much better in practice than my description sounds. When the four on the floor comes in it does so subtly but when the chorus drops “Chances” becomes some weird anthemic, chilled out dance track with a half time beat that I get goosebumps for. There’s all sorts of cool sounds in this from the heavy snare to the weird glitch rolls and sounds in the background. This song is for the “boy racer” in all of us, pop “Chances” on the sound system and drive through your local high street like a king! Then of course we have the video, an absolutely epic visual adventure, with the use of very cool alpha and luma masks. Sadly I can’t find any information about who directed, created or produced the video which is a shame as we always like to follow the best talent out there […]
