London-based producer Alec Storey, who operates under the solo alias Second Storey, has shared a new video for "The Overview Effects (Parts 1 & 2)." Taken from his debut full-length Double Divide, which was released on the Fabric-affiliated Houndstooth label back in October, the track samples the voice of Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth person to ever step foot on the moon. His heavily distorted narrative describes the so-called "overview effect": the phenomenon of looking at planet earth from a new, radical perspective. Video footage was taken from The Planetary Collective's mini-documentary The Overview Effect (available to watch in full here), and edits together shots of astronauts spinning in zero gravity with the earth floating below them.

A full stream of Double Divide can be heard here via XLR8R, and the video premiere for "The Overview Effects (Parts 1 & 2)" can be watched below.
