Video Premiere: David Åhlén – If I Have You

David-ahlen

Ahead of the release of new music coming later this year, Swedish singer/songwriter/producer David Åhlén (pictured above) has collaborated with visual artist Gustaf Järver on a striking music video for his new single, “If I Have You.” The song is culled from Åhlén’s My Face Will Shine EP released today on Jivvär Records.

We’re elated to world premiere the video of the achingly beautiful minimal masterpiece that’s complemented by an expressive video of a lone dancer interpreting the song. The footage was filmed amid the majestic natural splendor of Jämtland at Helagsmassivet, a mountain in Sweden, on a clear and windy day.

Video Premiere: Wolff Parkinson White & Hayden Chisholm – “If Only”

WOLFF PARKINSON WHITE & HAYDEN CHISHOLM 1

Today sees the release of Off World, a collaborative album between multi-instrumentalist, singer and poet Hayden Chisholm and electronic music artist Wolff Parkinson White.

Good things are indeed well worth waiting for: the duo — who are half of Nils Wogram’s classic jazz quartet Root 70 — took nearly a decade years to bring the ten-song collection to life.

We’re extremely pleased to world premiere the music video for the album’s opening track. It was directed and edited by Chisholm and realized with fellow creatives Jochen Rueckert and Masato Tsutsui.

Within the frame of a single shot is a clever triptych. It’s a meditation staged in a cafe composed of two men playing chess, a video screen bursting with motion graphics and Chisholm singing at a table behind the men.

Video Premiere: Gagarin – Eskil (Prophane’s Dark Angeline Mix)

Gagarin Prophane's Dark Angeline Mix

We’ve sung the praises of musical explorer Graham “Dids” Dowdall many times.

In addition to crafting compelling ambient/electronica soundscapes under his Gagarin alias, he’s played with Nico, collaborated with John Cale, Ludus, Eric Random, Suns of Arqa, Band of Holy Jo and Low Bias. He is a member of avant-rock legends Pere Ubu and duo Roshi featuring Pars Radio.

Today, we’re thrilled to world premiere the video for Prophane’s Dark Angeline Mix of “Eskil,” a selection from 2020’s The Great North Wood album, directed by Dan @ Discordance.

As an onslaught of colors, shapes and images fill the screen, the uptempo iteration of “Eskil” crafted by French DJ/producer Prophane spews some serious boom bap on his first commercially released remix. The Frenchman juxtaposes big, hulking beats with ravey synth melodies and IDM swagger that call to mind classic ’90s productions for the dance floor.

Video Premiere: Great White Shark – Choices (Skelesys Remix)

Great-White-Shark-Choices-Skelesys-Remix-Official-Music-Video

Great White Shark is an alternative-rock project led by David Naville, a Lausanne-born/Berlin-based composer and music/music video producer.

After the release of GWS’ Time To Be debut EP in February via M&O Music comes the provocative, visually stunning music video for “Choices” (Skelesys Remix) which we’re excited to world premiere.

Written and directed by Spanish filmmaker Christiania Krueger, the video — which has the high-quality production value of a feature film — tells the twisted story of Miguel, a fiftysomething Spanish man. Cold and distant in his physical appearance, he survived the harsh brutality of the Franco era of the early ’70s, only to become a sadistic killer in his own right.

As Miguel coldly inflicts misery on his victims without mercy, his horrific acts — all done by his own choice — tap into a wealth of thought-provoking issues, including racism, sexism and politics.
