Rest In Peace, Jun Seba / Nujabes

Sad news from my friend Shingo, his close friend, producer Jun Seba (Nujabes) has passed away. The world has lost one of its most soulful producers! Rest In Peace, Jun.

    This really depresses me… I have listened to his music for years now and it hurts for someone so talented to leave at such an early age. I really feel for everyone that has had the wonderful oppertunity to be graced with his great music. may he rest in peace…

    Wow…so sad. Unbelievable. His music took me through some the hardest times of my life. Always dreamed of seeing him live in Concert. But I will continue always to introduce his work to my closest of friends. One of the best artists of all time in my mind.

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
