Daito Manabe

Daito Manabe is onto something genius here – this is crazy! The muscles in Daito’s face move in sync to music via some sort of device that sends out an electric pulse. I could see a music video treatment where the entire thing is a close up of a face, kinda like that Bjork video for Hidden Place.

Now Daito just needs to design me a jumpsuit so I can fullfill my dream of winning So You Think You Can Dance. Another video of Daito after the jump!

    Not too heavily into minimal clicks and beeps. I would love to hear some big beats coming out of a blink or two!

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
