N.A.S.A. Covers Max Romeo’s “Chase The Devil”

Dr. Martens is celebrating its 50th anniversary by enlisting ten contemporary bands and ten film directors to cover ten cult classic songs. The seventh and latest track in the series is N.A.S.A.‘s re-interpretation of Max Romeo and The Upsetters classic reggae anthem “I Chase the Devil.” Having collaborated with heads as diverse as M.I.A., Karen O and Tom Waits on their masterful debut LP The Spirit of Apollo, it was anyone’s guess as to what direction N.A.S.A. would take. After hours spent crunching real tape loops and experimenting with the dubbing to get exactly the right “stoned, spacey feel,” the production on the track sparkles. The animated video that accompanies is every inch as virtuoso with humor and imagination in excess. Don Letts has broken boundaries left, right and center in his film work and this video continues that spirit of exploration with extra-powerful visuals.
