BELGIAN VIDEOS TO BE HERE FOR: DARRELL COLE & COELY

Posted on June 12th, by Dominique in magazine, music, video. No Comments

2017 has already proven to be a great year for Belgian hip hop with artists like Hamza and Damso -whose rise in particular seems unstoppable with his video for “N.J. Respect R” being on the verge of 10 million (!) views as we speak- busting through the noise.

Two of our fellow compatriots just dropped new visuals, the first one being Darrell Cole giving us the beautiful and vulnerable “BOATS.”, which stands for “Based On A True Story”.

The video is gorgeously directed and animated by Remy m. Ndow and tells the story about young Darrell’s chaotic and brave journey from Sierra Leone to Antwerp.

Watch and subsequently count your blessings.

The second drop is from that other Antwerp gem Coely, who let “A Polaroid Story” ‘s Elisabeth Ouni earn her first full director’s credit on the video for her ode to her Mama called “Celebrate”, a song we’ve … Read More »



WATCH AMANDLA STENBERG CROON IN SELF-DIRECTED & EDITED VIDEO FOR “LET MY BABY STAY”

Posted on May 11th, by Dominique in magazine, music, video. Comments Off on WATCH AMANDLA STENBERG CROON IN SELF-DIRECTED & EDITED VIDEO FOR “LET MY BABY STAY”

Amandla Stenberg decided that ready or not, it’s time to fully inform the world that next to acting, writing and showing the next generation how to be fully woke and fabulous; she has singing, directing and editing skills to boot.

Watch the pretty video she made for her Mac DeMarco’s (great interview on WTF btw) cover of “Let My Baby Stay” below.

And who knew YouTube comment threads don’t have to be awful?  



MYKKI BLANCO “HIDEAWAY” VIDEO (WATCH)

Posted on April 10th, by immi in magazine, music, video. Comments Off on MYKKI BLANCO “HIDEAWAY” VIDEO (WATCH)

The video for the inimitable Mykki Blanco’s “Hideaway”, directed by Daisy Zhou (“How To Be a Black Panther”), has dropped and it’s so important.

Made in collaboration with W Magazine (shout-out to W’s long-time style director Edward Enninful on the historic British Vogue EIC appointment!) and amfAR in honour of National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the video sees a despondent lover fall to pieces in her room while Mykki shadows her in a couture gown. It symbolises the effect the HIV stigma can have on a relationship.

In an interview last year, Mykki Blanco crowned “Hideaway” as a personal favourite on the “Mykki” album, describing the song as “hard-core but also blatantly queer”. The video is accompanied by a candid interview that delves into the damage HIV stigmatisation can cause, as well as what we can do to keep the fight alive through grassroots activism.

WATCH THE NEW KENDRICK LAMAR VIDEO ‘HUMBLE’

Posted on March 31st, by Dominique in magazine, music, video. 1 Comment

What does your household discuss over breakfast?

The three of us talked about the new Kendrick Lamar video for ‘Humble’, the second drop of the artist’s highly anticipated new project.

It references TV shows, movies and other pop culture visuals like the Destiny’s Child ‘Bills, Bills, Bills’ video, The Wire, DOPE, the ‘Grey Poupon’ commercial, The Last Supper, Being John Malkovich and The Young Pope. (Shout out to Jude Law for giving me all the life playing Pope Lenny and working those papal robes. I went to a school reigned by evil nuns and I absolutely hated it, so I’m lmao watching that show.)

Mike Will Made-It -who just dropped a fine album himself- produced the track and the video is directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies. Dave Meyers is responsible for a slew of amazing videos like Pink – ‘There You Go’ (I remember screaming at the TV when she … Read More »



WATCH ARCA – ‘REVERIE’

Posted on March 17th, by legrandfromage in magazine, music, video. Comments Off on WATCH ARCA – ‘REVERIE’

An almost uncomfortably intimate and tender exploration of desire, death, self-doubt and the beauty of owning your struggle. Directed by Jesse Kanda.



THE XX – SAY SOMETHING LOVING – VIDEO

Posted on March 8th, by legrandfromage in magazine, music, video. Comments Off on THE XX – SAY SOMETHING LOVING – VIDEO

This video and song are giving me goosebumps and if I connect the dots between those goosebumps, they are spelling out “DON’T LET IT SLIP AWAY”.



NICOLAS KARAKATSANIS SHOOTS VIDEO FOR “WARHOLA” DIRECTED BY ANDERS MALMBERG

Posted on March 2nd, by Dominique in art, magazine, music, video. Comments Off on NICOLAS KARAKATSANIS SHOOTS VIDEO FOR “WARHOLA” DIRECTED BY ANDERS MALMBERG

The greatest working Director of Photography out there, our own Nicolas Karakatsanis, was commissioned by fellow Belgians Warhola and Danish director Anders Malmberg to shoot the video for “Jewels”.

No one knows how to do shadow play and get you to detect details in the darkness like NK.

Each frame a gem, the “Jewels” visual is a meditation on tumbling teens, muscle mass, neck veins, crew cuts and subtly glistening leotards (I kind of want one now).

The face paint seems a bit extra, but as Anders Malmberg told Nowness:

” The song title, Jewels, inspired me to create a dark universe inhabited by face painted gymnasts, expressionistic figures, who would be like jewels in the night performing their routines.”

Watch the video below and read our last interview with Nicolas Karakatsanis (who posted on IG that he’s working on new stuff) HERE.

Warhola – “Jewels”

Director: Anders Malmberg

DOP: Nicolas Karakatsanis

Produced by: ADULT

JOIN DRIES VAN NOTEN AT THE “DRIES” DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE AT BOZAR

Posted on February 27th, by immi in magazine, style, video. Comments Off on JOIN DRIES VAN NOTEN AT THE “DRIES” DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE AT BOZAR

When the Dries Van Noten documentary was first announced, simply titled “Dries”, a little involuntary shriek escaped me. If you remember from our 2015 encounter, hearing Dries Van Noten speak about his craft is a cerebral experience laced with the most inspiring references and oodles upon oodles of flawless taste. Imagine 90 minutes of that. On March 31, the Reiner Holzemer-directed documentary will premiere at Bozar Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels in the presence of the designer and director.

This is the first time in Dries Van Noten’s career – which spans over 25 years and will be crowned with its 100th show at Paris Fashion Week on March 1 – that a feature-length documentary will chronicle the Antwerp Six legend’s work and home life. The film will show a year in the normally quite camera-averse designer’s life, and the four collections … Read More »



JOHN WATERS ANNOUNCES NEW BOOK “MAKE TROUBLE” WEARING WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK

Posted on February 23rd, by Dominique in art, magazine, style, video. Comments Off on JOHN WATERS ANNOUNCES NEW BOOK “MAKE TROUBLE” WEARING WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK

“I’ve figured how not to be around assholes at any time in my private or my professional life.”

– John Waters.

And isn’t that just what freedom means, people? It does to me!

The beloved filmmaker, actor, writer and visual artist John Waters, whose “Role Models” is one of the only books I frequently re-read and has given me great comfort these past couple of years, just announced the imminent release of his latest scripture called “MAKE TROUBLE”.

Branded a book filled with “inspiring advice for artists, graduates, and all who seek happiness and success on their own terms”, Mr. Waters advises to embrace chaos, horrify with new ideas and outrage outdated critics. But most of all, he urges us to: “Ask for the world & pay no mind if you are initially turned down.”

But here he is, wearing a great Walter Van Beirendonck suit jacket from the SS16 … Read More »

Your mask is shifting.

Blanck Mass – Please

Your connection is in flux.

Mount Eerie – “Ravens”

“You are not here. I watched you die in this room. I am sorry. I had to. Now I’ll move. We’ll move with our daughter. We will ride over water. With your ghost underneath the boat.”

Zuza Krajewska – “Imago”

You are changed by the places you find yourself in.

Astroid Boys – “Foreigners”

“You know that I don’t want to argue, but… you know that my people have had enough.”
