What are you up to this weekend? How about a little Mobroder?
As of some time last year Spank Rock has a new Italo disco project called Mobroder. (More specifically the Naeem Juwon half of Spank Rock; producer XXXChange is off and running in many different directions.) The outfit, which also features producers DJ Hoff and Blue Jemz, released its first single “Rush” back then; its remix gets video treatment here by directors Francisco Soriano and Antoine Wagner. True to the coke-disco pulse coursing through the track’s production, and the conceptual bio on Spank Rock’s site, the clip sends up Scarface-era Miami Beach blow-stylings in its faded print, its hot rods, and Naeem’s big-mustached acting. The video has its own dialogue running with the song underneath, making it some sort of a hybrid video/film, a form that seems to be taking on some popularity its own this week (see also: ANR’s slasher film for “Big Problem”). Check it:See them live on Friday when Mobroder plays the afterparty for 92YTribeca’s Electronic Dream: Giorgio Moroder Film and Music series kick off.
