Video Premiere: Mndsgn "Hiking / Fif Dim"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Los Angeles beatsmith Mndsgn just dropped a limited cassette called Breatharian via Fresh Selects, and today the artist shares a video made in collaboration with the label and Portland design group The Pressure. The visuals for "Hiking / Fif Dim" detail a lone female character who thumbs through a Mndsgn zine and suddenly finds herself in a packed nightclub, engulfed in the zine's patterned visuals. Taking advantage of the mood shift between these cuts, "Hiking"'s mellow piano lounging segues naturally into the hazy beat-funk of "Fif Dim." The well-crafted piece appears before Fresh Selects drops Indeia, the companion to Mndsgn's recent EP, later this month.
