Kutiman Samples Amateur Youtube Musicians to Create “Give It Up”

kutiman-giveitup

Ophir Kutiel aka Kutiman, is the Youtube generation’s DJ Shadow. He scours Youtube for obscure musical treasures; kids playing piano, guitar tutorials, anything he can use to make a song. Somehow he is able to weave the unrelated clips into something completely new. I’ve blogged about him numerous times but it all started with his project Thru You.

5 years later, Kutiman is set to release his follow up, Thru You Too, and his first single “Give It Up” is a masterpiece. Watch the video below!

I almost didn’t even load this video based on the preview image on Vimeo. It just looked like a cookie-cutter video with really bad product placement, but there’s a pretty great shift halfway through. Watch “Say My Name” below.

Music Video: Unifono “Flight of Fancy”

unifono-flightoffancy

Matthias Pfeiffer filmed most of this on a train ride between Valencia and Barcelona. Although I grabbed a frame from a portion of the video where he uses the mirror effect I actually prefer the parts where he employs other more subtle editing; specifically the part near the beginning where the flickering of the lights goes to the beat.

Watch the video for Unifono’s “Flight of Fancy” below.
