Video: Devonwho "Strangebrew"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Fresh off the appearance of new song "Cactus," funk-filled Bay Area beatmaker Devonwho has let loose a video for the title track of his forthcoming Strangebrew EP. And while the clip may not feature much of a plot, that doesn't detract from the fact that it definitely looks really cool. Bouncing from one scene to the next with the same sort of carefree abandon communicated by the song's blazed vibes, the video stands out for its deceptively lo-fi morphing techniques. The footage repeatedly pixelates, only to have an entirely new setting emerge from the distorted mass of colored blocks. It's a neat trick, and one that works well with the song's thick, purple bass tones and warped G-funk spirit. The Strangebrew EP will be released on April 2 via All City.
