SR Video of the Day: Space Cadet (ft. Ghostface Killah & Autre Ne Veut) – Flume
The young Aussie producer, Flume released his first self-titled album through the UK label Future Classic in 2012 to critical acclaim. “Space Cadet” was instantly one of my favorite tracks. The futuristically composed amorphous EDM intertwined with Autre Ne Veut’s hypnotic vocals and an aptly-timed verse from none other than Ghostface Killah creates a one of a kind feel that can only be Flume.
Flume recently announced that there will be a double LP vinyl deluxe edition of Flume released on April 15th, and shared an absolutely stunning new animation from Jim Dirschberger and Jay Howell for “Space Cadet.” Does this candy colored Play-Doh world seem familiar to you? If it does, then you probably watch Bob’s Burgers on Adult Swim.
Animator Jay Howell also designed characters for that series. Both he and Jim Deischberger currently work for Nickelodeon, and work on the show Sanjay and Craig. The idiosyncrasies can be seen instantly in the surreal but joyful creatures who wander an alien landscape and find Ghostface Killah blasting off on an Aztec spaceship. Overflowing with psychedelic colors and innovative animation techniques, this short video perfectly complements Flume’s music. The double LP vinyl deluxe edition of Flume drops April 15th.
