The 1 Brooklyn Shanti just passed us this video and download from his Drop it Steady project longside Baldi.

I’m a big fan of the FX TV show Archer. In this vid, Drop it Steady take an episode and chop suey it into their verses creating new strain variant on the idea of copyright pirate video mash ups. Between stuff like this and Autotune the News, I’m looking forward to an interesting and innovative 2013.

This is pretty incredible.  Shows what you can do nowadays with some creativity and relatively low budget and technology film making wise.  If you are interested in uses for drones besides killing people this is a really good one. It’s a Czech skate video shot with a flying camera. I’d like to remix it with different music but the visuals are pretty stunning. Big up to the people who made this.

Steve CHLLNGR showed me this way back when we were in Tejas for some music festival. He was excited about it. Even then the animated sci-fi music video in its embyonic stage looked like an incredible visual story. SKIP TO THE NOW >> Last week, the video was premiered in Wired, and right NOW it’s all up on Vimeo HD Channel. Oh, by the way… if you still like music, Steve’s debut album Haven is out as well.
