Video Premiere: Dfalt "Moon Milkshake"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
LA beatsmith Dfalt has unveiled a video for "Moon Milkshake," the closing cut from last month's Helsinki Beat Tape (Part One) (another track from which we recently offered for download). Created by Sam Cox, the animated video for "Moon Milkshake" serves as a nod to the washed-out, hand-drawn aesthetic of early cartoons, cleverly detailing the humorous happenings in an extraterrestrial pie factory. Cox's attention to detail is worth noting, particularly evident as one of the factory's machines unleashes pie filling into empty canisters perfectly in sync with a thudding snare hit. Cox's lighthearted approach makes for a refreshing, if unlikely, accompaniment to Dfalt's hip-hop-rooted track.
