Squarepusher has dropped off a music video for “Detroit People Mover,” a track taken from his newest album Be Up A Hello and his EP Lamental.
Directed by Jacob Hurwitz-Goodman, the visual for “Detroit People Mover” takes a complete 180 from predecessor “Terminal Slam,” which was shot in several bustling streets that included the famous Shibuya Crossing, and visualizes the isolation on a driver-less train journey around the city. According to the electronic musician, both these visuals are a reflection of the sudden change in our environment and signifiTes the massive sonic differences within his project.
“I like the way both of these videos articulate salient points about our urban environments – in ‘Terminal Slam’ about the prevalence of advertising and possibilities for its subversion, and here regarding our zombie cities that despite the lack of everyday human contact continue marching on. The track itself is part of a series begun in 1993 inspired by the music of Detroit,” Squarepusher said in a statement.
