Video: Quasimoto "Catchin' the Vibe"
- Words: Tim Gentles
Madlib's Quasimoto alias recently released the Yessir Whatever LP—a collection of unreleased tracks, rarities, and b-sides—via Stones Throw, and today the iconic LA beatmaker/MC has shared a video for album track "Catchin' the Vibe." Quasimoto is in a laid-back mode here, with hazy, unassuming beats providing a mellow base for his stoney raps. The accompanying visuals were directed by Tuomas Vauhkonen and Jeremias Nieminen (who set out to film the piece in Southern California, but were denied permits), and are said to feature a costumed cameo from Lord Quas himself. As should be expected, the video itself revels in the pranksterism we've come to expect from Madlib's helium-voiced alter ego, as it follows local actors around locations in Finland and Romania.
