Video & Free MP3: Premiere of the ‘World Class Driver’ Music Video & Free Felix Cartal – ‘Racer’ mp3
Music Video Premiere
World Class Driver
The World Class Driver video was directed by Josh Forbes. His interpretation of the track and inspiration for the video:
The concept for this video came from the lyric “take it real slow”. It sounded like something an old person might say. The next lyric is “so put the pedal to the floor”, which made me think of an old person rolling down the street like a badass in a Rascal scooter.
From there it became a game of “what sort of depraved things can I get old people to do?” and “how can we put an old person spin on it?” So instead of doing heroin, the guy’s freebasing Werther’s Original, and instead of watching some hardcore porn, they’re watching a video of Angela Lansbury giving herself a massage in a hot tub.
This is one of my favorite videos of all-time, even if I hadn’t made it. Apparently it creeps people out, but for me it’s just pure delight. It reminds me of Werner Herzog’s “Even Dwarves Started Small”, a movie about a group of insane Little People who take over their asylum and create their own micro-society. I like the idea of a world overrun by crazy old people. It scares the hell out of me.

Half-singer, half-rapper and all-genius, it’s only natural that the visual counterpart for the Dim Mak signee’s bass-heavy ballad is one for the books. The video…
Born Robert Raimon Roy, Rob Roy, as he’s known to the music community, is Dim Mak’s latest signee. Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, he has already released 2 full length projects and is working on his third album to be released by Dim Mak Records. I was fortunate enough to sit down with Rob last week to discuss everything from his early influences to his dream of being a college professor one day.
SCANNERS have been featured in the hit TV show Gossip Girl and now, their single “Salvation” can be heard on “So You Think You Can Dance?” (Canada). SYTYCD’s Top 4 couple, Janick and Deny, did a stunning, contemporary performance to the Scanners acclaimed song. Cheers for Scanners taking over our speakers and television screens!

Designer Adam Moller has created these beautiful speakers called the “Klang Ultrasonic Speakers”.
Klang is a pair of ultrasonic transmitters, designed for Bang & Olufsen, that emit low-level ultrasound from a node attached to a dish. This node’s relative location to the focal point of the dish determines the spread of the signal. As the sound is created at infinite points along the path of the signal, the user is able to control where the sound is heard by simply adjusting the signal’s spread. True bi-natural sound is also achieved as only the left ear hears sound from the left transmitter, and only the right ear hears sound from the right transmitter; depending upon the placement of the transmitters, of course.
“For the model, the base was created using a 3D printer, and the brass pieces are actually brass, which I turned manually (as opposed to CNC) on a lathe. The other pieces were also turned on the lathe after creating the stock from instacast.” -Adam Moller
