Watch 'Cloudlight' From the Upcoming Eskmo Debut Album

Posted By on Tue, Aug 17, 2010 at 1:08 PM

Never let it be said that Bay Area dubstep patron Brendan Angelides isn't a dedicated artist. The talented producer has been working on his own kind of hip-hop-leaning electronic beat music under the name Eskmo for over a decade. In that time he's been picked up by respected labels such as Warp and Planet Mu, and has released music on his own eponymous label. Only recently was he officially signed onto the Ninja Tune roster for the release of his official debut full-length, Eskmo. But the 13-track disc couldn't cause any more anticipation if it was bringing the rapture, so we count ourselves lucky to finally get a first taste of the forthcoming record with this beautifully shot music video for "Cloudlight."

Accompanied by the strange, shuffling sounds that make up the beat for his track, Angelides traipses about a forest with a weathered wooden box before opening it to reveal what appear to be the remains of something (someone?). He then releases some ash -- a fateful action which somehow transports him into a whole other dimension/realm/universe. It's a beautifully shot and moody piece that flows amazingly with Eskmo's pristinely produced track. And if this tune doesn't whet your appetite for brooding electronic jams, you can get an exclusive brand-new track from Eskmo directly. For the price of an email, download "Come Back" before Eskmo is released October 4.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
