  • Fourth The Golden Eagle Remixed

    Posted by kelpe

    I was keeping busy last year but evidently too busy to update my site here so a few things went un-noted.

    Mainly, I released a remixed version of my album and it featured Mike Slott, Dam Mantle, Fulgeance, Mr Chop and many more – remixing the entire album in order – for a full 10 track digital package and 5 track vinyl version.

    Here is a video for the Fuewa remix of ‘Answered’ and you can find a full bandcamp stream at the bottom. Unfortunately the vinyl is sold out on bandcamp but can be found here at Bleep.

  • Beaks of Eagles Video by Diagram Design

    Posted by kelpe

    Slightly late to post this on here, but I really like this video that Diagram Design made for the last single ‘Beaks of Eagles’. Diagram Design are a Tokyo based design and video production house established in 2006, notably known in the music world for their fantastic official videos for Goth Trad’s ‘Cut End’ on Deep Medi, plus Teebs & Jackhigh’s ‘Rains’ on Svetlana Indsutries. They specialise in an organic style of highly syncopated animation, sometimes mixed with live action footage. This video for ‘Beaks of Eagles’ follows the psychedelic flight of an origami eagle across beautiful sunset skies before it bursts into multitudinous fragments of colour.

    That single is available digitally from Bandcamp, complete with a Fulgeance remix (see below).
