New video for "Kill Your Co-Workers," one of the highlights from his newest EP Pattern + Grid World. As ever, its trippy bent is congruent with Fly Lo's other stoner clips, and it's refreshing to hear him working in these fast tempo's, on the grid. The whole off-beat, soporific druggy beat thing seems to be dying off, and that's fine-- how much further could unquantized beats be taken, anyway?
Nottingham's Lone seemingly dropped the ball with his last record Ecstasy & Friends, but he always seems to come through with great 12" singles-- this is no exception. Much like Zomby's Where Were You In '92, "Pineapple Crush" is an updated, left-field nu-beat take on dance music from the 1990s. (I've dubbed this movement "Nu-Beat" since, well, "wonky" sounds just ridiculous and because "Nu" spells-out '90s, to describe this non-ironic, backwards-glancing sound.) Werk Discs put this out back in August (so late to the game!), as a 10" single, and re-released it with (decent) remixes soon thereafter. Somehow, with all of the dated samples and rave-y sonics, Lone's signature sound remains intact. This is just plain fun. Recommended.
