more info on this please!!! :emb:

 

Been working on this for the past year or so in my free time. Previously worked on Skinemax, so it had a precedent, but this was a much more difficult affair. Came up with the idea after listening to a bunch of stuff that sounded like it had been decaying on an old tape for years, BOC Old Tunes, Hype Williams, VHS Head, etc. I was also watching a lot of nostalgic VHS footage and decided to theme one around old 80s commercials. Glad you guys enjoy it!

 

Here's some more info if you're interested:

I did an interview recently as well which I'm shopping around to various publications to see if they're interested, so I'll post that here as well once I know what the deal is.

 

Spread the word!

 

Oops, looks like that automatically posts the video, just click the title for the description.

This is why I don't watch tv anymore. Because it ceased being like that. This was tv as tv is and should be. tv-ish. Not this cgi hd shit today that makes no sense and is cold, minimal and not human.

Oh my bloody hell - this looks like one of the most incredible mixsets/videos I've seen in a long time. I'm a huge whore when it comes to the VHS aesthetic and this is just hitting all the right spots. six - one of the hugest of high fives goes your way man !

I was a huge Donnie Darko fan when I picked the name 10 years ago, and now I'm kind of stuck with it.

 

Not a bad idea, maybe I could make a short one song mix with Donnie Darko footage someday though.

 

The next one is gonna be all westerns though. I finished the audio a while ago, and my friend who I started Smash TV with will be editing the video this time.

 

So I'll keep you posted about "Gunslinger" in another year or so probably, it's looking pretty great so far!

sorry my ignorance, but it looks like/sounds like if in the intro of memorex video, you actually spotted where the vhs head samples came from and glued them with the original videos... did you do that??? or is it just a awesome case of synchronicity???

Nope, just careful planning! Tried to match each sound/lyric with a visual that made sense. Took fuckin' ages, probably around 400 hours of work total in my free time over the past year. Glad it was worth it!

Ripped most of them from youtube Check out the 80s Commercial Vault if you're interested in the source material, a lot of it came from there.

      Simple joyful synth house, light electro, melodic techno by Ukrainian electronic musician – Bodya Konakov. Nostalgia for rave with funny music. 
    • By fumi
      Sha Sha Kimbo draws endless amounts of inspiration from the rave scene of the 1990s, honing her own high-energy club excursions while gliding through the house, techno and breaks styles of the jaw-swinging, acid-tinged past.
      On “Omega High’, the final cut from her debut album, Mind Your Head, the producer swirls sunny breaks into urgent synth stabs, closing the record on a powerfully nostalgic high.

      A potential goldmine of footage for video mavens like @six for projects...

      MEL Magazine has a great article on Mallwave/Vaporwave, and the "false nostalgia" listeners too young to have directly experienced it have and why: https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/the-teens-who-listen-to-mallwave-are-nostalgic-for-an-experience-theyve-never-had
