Video: Tessela "Nancy's Pantry"
- Words: Leo Maymind
For their quirky, animated video for "Nancy's Pantry," a track from UK producer Tessela (a.k.a. Ed Russell), directors Will Barras and Sean Martin have created a digital, futuristic underworld in which a half-man, half-cockroach protagonist must escape the clutches of pastries marked with the famed R&S logo. Intertwined with some stunning Matrix-esque imagery, the piece frames the pulsing, breaks-ridden backdrop of Tessela's production as the perfect soundtrack to this alternate reality. Even if there is no hidden subtext to the "Nancy's Pantry" video, it makes for an intriguing and immersive world crafted around a song that recontextualizes classic rave and jungle breaks into something more forward thinking.
