Well we thought we would start your Mashup week with some new material by DJ Le Clown. As alway he takes his innate knowledge of music, production, video and produces another stand up track. Here is what Phil had to say about his latest track and video 'She's a Model'
Today would be the perfect day for releasing my new baby: " She's a Model" , it's the opening of the 29thTransmusicales festival in Rennes (Britanny-france), it's in this festival (the best in france for "artistic discovers" as they say here). In this festival i met a lot of great artists "Snakefinger" the Residents guitar player was one of the best encounter i had - he was the sweetest guy of the galaxy- calm- cool- always charming- the first artist i saw quietly reading his book 5 min before going on stage alone with his guitars! So, I had a lot of pleasure to work on his Kraftwerk cover "the model". It's the only resurrection i could afford for him! Wish he would have enjoy to be mashed up with such a wonderful artist as Missy Elliot; for me on the hip hop scene she's ...What I prefer.
I simply love her work ...And her personality; It's funny how you can have the feeling to get close to the people across their songs their images...Maybe it's also because i used some of the "making off" of her wonderful video, it was relevant to the Snakefinger song. I didn't still any movies this time, i rather used some Jean Paul Gaultier's commercials; Jean Paul Gaultier is one of my heroes...I love his suits!!!; and I hope he'll love what i did with what i grabbed on the tube (so much that he'll send me some stuff of his new collection!) Well mashup is a way to say...I love you.
Big ups to Phil for another great pair. Download and listen/view below. Peace.
