Watch this Kirin J. Callinan video because it will make you feel weird
This awesomely strange and talented mad man is coming from Australia via Terrible Records. The amazing gif-laden video (by acclaimed director Kris Moyes) states it’s NSFW but your boss won’t mind.

Nicolas Jaar + Dave Harrington = Darkside. New Video Just dropped
The “Darkside” EP was released on Clown & Sunset last fall, a Darkside album is forthcoming, date TBA. The video was directed by Ryan Staake, one of Clown & Sunset Aesthetics resident film-makers. Staake also created the visuals for Nicolas Jaar’s live tour and Jaar’s five-hour “From Scratch” performance at Moma PS1 from earlier this year. Here’s Staake about the A1 video:
The video began with the idea of Nico and I wanting to explore South Western landscapes. The imagery of the American South West has been a shared interest of Nico and I’s since we first met, its beauty and the vastness of this space, and how humans relate to it captured the imagination of us both. The phases of the moon are used as a narrative device to show passing of time, specifically implying a narrowing window of opportunity for the characters to achieve their goal.
Strut Archive UK Acid House Essentials: Richard Sen Collects The First Wave of UK Acid on “This Ain't Chicago”
Richard Sen (Padded Cell, Bronx Dogs) is pretty much the perfect person to walk you through the sounds of UK house and acid house from 1987-1991. A hero within the EDM culture world, the well-respected DJ/producer digs deep into the heady era when UK producers were responding to the first wave of Chicago house and documents the underground clubs that first championed the music. As the early rave scene and acid house kicked in at London clubs like Shoom and Spectrum, deeper and darker house nights thrived like RIP at Clink Street, Confusion and The Jungle and in warehouse parties around East London. Manchester too adopted house music at an early stage, most famously at The Hacienda’s Nude night.
The new series by Strut (released July 10) draws on both underground house music classics and lesser-known tracks including early outings by producer Julian Jonah, A Guy Called Gerald, Trevor Fung’s Playtime Toons, Eddie Richards and Ian B’s Rio Rhythm Band and Baby Ford. The compilation also celebrates a host of excellent but short-lived UK DIY labels including Ruby Red from West Midlands, G-Force out of Essex, Rhythmbeat, Chill and Catt.
