Esteemed and esoteric Icelandic artist Björk released a new music video and song yesterday. The Gate is both visually stunning and aurally astonishing, a lush wonderland and fantastical trip that’s far too striking not to give it a requisite share. The Gate’s video, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, takes us into a world surreal and magical, psychedelic and other worldly. The song itself does the same. Its a mystical experimental piece that leaves us feeling like we’re privy to a glimpse into something mysterious and arcane. It flows and flitters, a strange and wonderful work of art.

Nostalgic and soulful ear candy by Louis Futon and RKCB. ‘Surreal’’s opening acts as one of those old fashion tiny music boxes. It’s smooth and crafted with an authenticity where it’s delicacy is such a beaut. It’s surreal.

Come tomorrow night, New Jersey’s Clams Casino will be lighting it up with his syrupy intoxicating music at Mezzanine in San Francisco. I’m sure excited fans can’t hold still as they await the event. Dutch producer San Holo quells some of those jitters as he remixes Clams Casino’s I’m God, giving it a divine makeover overflowing with heavenly synths. We’re taken for a galactic joyride by the vast and profound edit, a near spiritual future bass, trap, and melodic bass experience I find grandly soothing and dreamy surreal. For a moment, we all feel like gods. Download San Holo’s remix, here.

Make way for a new producer from Chicago who goes by the name Mielo, because he’s just swept me away with his dazzling, elegant debut original, Surreal, which features enthralling vocals by Abby Sevcik. The song gives off an effect that lives up to its name. A graceful, serene ambiance gives the sparkler an intensely dreamy effect, while its ravishing future bass and chill trap swells are exquisitely captivating.

OFFICIAL VID: Oneohtrix Point Never – Problem Area

August 1, 2013

This is probably one of the most random music videos I’ve seen this year, but along with the incredibly hypnotizing music by Oneohtrix Point Never, it sure kept my curious attention. There’s no doubt in my mind that the director is a fan of surrealism and, in particular, Dali’s work. Pretty awesome stuff, if you ask me. Brooklyn’s Oneohtrix Point Never, or Daniel Lopatin, has a new album titled R Plus Seven coming out on October 1 on Warp Records. This is one tasty, droning, ambient, electronic morsel from the release.
