Berlin Music Video Roundup #2
Delicious, decadent ear-and-eye candy coming your way from Berlin's best
Here is another selection of recent ear-massaging, brain-stimulating, eyeball-nourishing video treats put together by Berlin artists. Overflowing with creativity and originality, they are just begging for you to click play. We love them, you will too.
The Bug, a.k.a Kevin Martin, has been innovating at the intersection of dub, noise, and dancehall for three decades now. ‘You’ is the first single with his latest collaborator, Dis Fig, Berlin resident Felicia Chen, who laid claim to her own emotive blend of industrial noise and delicate drone with her acclaimed debut album in 2019, ’Purge’. A perfect match made somewhere deep below the ocean, their combined talents have produced an explosively murky take on 90’s trip-hop. Chen’s haunting vocals creep just below the surface of Martin’s dense rhythms, which tremble underneath the weight of a thunderous glacier. Sander Houtkruijer’s mesmerizing video wraps Chen in the song’s thick, intoxicating atmosphere with a simple but powerful visual style and potent performance.
