Video: DJ Shadow – “Scale It Back” ft. Little Dragon

 

DJ Shadow’s latest video is for “Scale It Back” and features none other than the much adored Little Dragon. Watch out for a giant dragon puppet, a bird balloon, a pterodactyl dude pushing a shopping cart, an old dude and a chick in gold hot pants sparring, and so much more.

When we look at DJ Shadow’s new video for “Border Crossing,” we feel like we might have teleported into a psychedelic version of M.A.S.H. The video and track release at an interesting political time for the United States, with an urgent, throbbing focus on immigration.

For those still not up on game, DJ Shadow also released his most recent album a few days ago, The Less You Know, The Better. The album spans an array of moods and genres it seems, including appearances from Tom Vek, Little Dragon, Talib Kweli & Posdnuos.

Little Dragon recently dropped a gorgeously animated video for “Brush The Heat” off their most recent album, Ritual Union. We love the colors, the lovable quirks and eccentricities, and the welcome hypnosis of what is a Little Dragon song. Enjoy!

Artist Spotlight: SBTRKT + “Wildfire” ft. Little Dragon & “Pharaohs” ft. Roses Gabor

When we first heard SBTRKT at his US debut during the SXSW Music Festival this March, we knew we were on to something. Just a few days ago, the London-based producer released his self-titled debut on Young Turks. The 11-track album blends a palatable mix of house, electronic, dubstep, and garage while keeping a soulful undertone throughout. According to Billboard, the project was recorded over the span of two years with most of the guest vocalists (Little Dragon, Sampha and Jessie Ware) recording on SBTRKT’s living room couch.

The low-key artist prefers to conceal his identity, keeping his real name to himself and wearing an African mask to his live performances. So, you’d imagine his surprise when he found that Drake chose to re-make his “Wildfire” single featuring Little Dragon. Go figure. Check out the original track for “Wildfire” above – we’ve already looped it about ten times. Also, don’t miss his only four US tour dates slated for this year.
