Video: Huerco S. "Ragtime U.S.A. (Warning)"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Kansas-born producer Huerco S. has been rising fast in the electronic realm—his excellent debut, Colonial Patterns, and refreshingly trend-blind XLR8R podcast from last week are a testament to the young artist's talent—and just today, he released a new video for the weathered techno cut "Ragtime U.S.A. (Warning)." The repurposed, spastic piece zooms in on a digitally artifacted seaside and forest, until the visuals become so choppy and abstracted that they take on wholly different forms. Eventually, the video adds in a kaleidoscopic mirror effect, and the conceptual shapes seem to become self-aware, growing more complex in their new paradigm.
