This is the fifth annual electronic rumors Awards, so with five years under our belt we’re pretty sure we can go ‘woah’ when someone taken an award two ears running. But the man Starcadian is back to rule the Best Video category with his clip for Chinatown.
Chinatown has the same stunningly professional, yet actually DIY, vibe that we loved from last year’s winner Hea^rt. Once again Starcadian himself teams-up with Rob O’Neill to give us a tiny, tantalising, taste of the imaginary movie Sunset Blood (who’s soundtrack Starcadian released this year and Chinatown is taken from). A neon drenched dystopia, like a Disco version of BladeRunner’s LA, serves as the black drop for Sgt. Tagowski’s hunt for the mysterious Starcadian cyborg thing and his digitising floppy disk. The video has both a narrative and slick Pop video direction, that leaves you wanting more. Also, there’s a cameo from Hea^rt’s star-traveller too,
As always, you should definitely pick up some of this music, it all comes highly recommended and most can be purchased here:
