Video: Julien Mier "Super Tropic Tramp"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Dutch tunesmith Julien Mier dropped his Jane's Junkyard EP back in June, and today, he shares a fervently geometric video for "Super Tropic Tramp," a cut taken from his forthcoming When Will They Wake Up 12" for Canadian imprint King Deluxe. Directed and animated by Japanese graphics wizard Koji Aramaki, the piece transposes Mier's frenetic, maximalist production into an assortment of concentric circles and sharp vector shapes. It's a hyper-detailed ode to Mier's pointillist synths and percussion in pure visualized form. When Will They Wake Up will also feature remixes by Sun Glitters, Alphabets Heaven, and more when the digital package arrives on November 11; the 12" is available now.
