Rip! Un Manifiesto en Remix

Si estás familiarizado con los documentales musicales, probablemente conocerás éste. Dirigido por Brett Gaylor, “Rip! A Remix Manifesto”, salió en 2008. Su proceso de creación ha tomado lugar durante 6 años. Sin embargo, creo que habla con tanta fuerza sobre el tema del copyright, que no se quedará obsoleto en mucho tiempo. Aun así, la productora de mash-up, Girl Talk, uno de los personajes centrales de la grabación, diría que en retrospectiva, estos problemas simplemente parecen no tener sentido.

La película, con licencia Creative Commons, es un remix colaborativo en sí mismo, elaborado por cientos de colaboradores, y siendo el “Primer documental de código abierto del mundo”. ¡Disfruta aprendiendo sobre el sampling, los remixes, los mash-ups, las leyes que les atañen así como la industria musical que dirige el show!

Official Video for Duke Dumont – Need U (100%) + fresh remix by Skream

Maybe it was the End of the World that got producers to give it their best, we don't know. But what we do know is that the final quarter of 2012 saw new hits springing up like mushrooms after rain. One of the biggest things in house was Duke Dumont's track Need U (100%).  Now it's gotten the visuals to go with the beats, you can check it out below. You will also find Skream's early 90s reminiscent spin on the club anthem. Both tracks will be available to purchase starting from March, 31st via Ministry of Sound. Enjoy!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a tape-recorder stuck in your stomach, playing the one of the catchiest tracks around everywhere you go? Well, now you can see what's likely to happen by the courtesy of Duke Dumont and the director of choice – Ian Robertson.

Watch: Official video for Diplo – Butter’s Theme feat. Gent & Jawns

If you still haven't heard of the Potato Will Eat You business, then head to our quick guide to Potato, the new platform by A-Trak, Skrillex and Diplo with a lot of collaborators from around the world. The first music video has emerged, being introduced through the platform. This one's the fruit of Diplo's efforts, with a trademark ridiculousness element evident in the visual accompaniment.

Butter’s theme” feat. Gent & Jawns comes his recent 'Express Yourself' EP. The wicked video goes well with the moombahton jungle beats.

Also: See if you can find Ellie Goulding in the video!! (time noted at the end of article)

Watch the video, effort of director Reuben Dangoor!




Ellie will make her cameou at about 2:15

Watch: Dillon Francis & 12th Planet get sensual re-making a famous scene

Surely one of the funniest DJs out there, Dillon Francis has managed to come up with yet another shenanigan, taking the dubstep don 12th Planet along for the 'ride'. To explain the birth of this audiovisual piece, you should note that Francis sells various kinds of items and services on his website. These range from your usual merch like T-Shirts to services like calling a fan and singing them happy birthday.


Right now you'll see what happened when EDM photographer Rukes decided to buy the one which got Dillon and 12th Planet to remake the famous pottery scene from 'Ghost'.

The original scene from 'Ghost'. Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze are almost as passionate as the Casanovas above.

Another cross-genre Skrillex track in The Art of Raw

Awe-inspiring goes for both the video, as well as the unveiled Skrillex track accompanying it. If you heard his Reason EP, one of the first OWSLA Nest releases, you know about the dubstep virtuoso's genre crossing explorations. The track used in this ad is a step further into the unknown. What must have become apparent by now, is that Skrillex isn't just about one blend of music. His personal experimenting, Dog Blood project with Boys Noize and the hereby commercial are a testament to just that. If you ask my personal opinion, I like it..

Skrillex sat down with G-Star for a quick word on what he thinks of the project:

“It was a way for us all to come together and experiment artistically. Coming together to create this fantastic video piece was just exciting and new for everybody involved on the project. That’s the thing about adverts, they can either be cheesy and solely used as marketing tool, or they can be a great excuse to do something different and expressive. I truly believe we made something AWESOME together.”
