Mat Zo has made a name for himself as one of the most eclectic artists in modern electronic music - fusing old school and new school into one brilliant sound. This makes the mix of ancient and modern elements in his new video for "Pyramid Scheme" - the new single off his forthcoming debut artist album "Damage Control" out 11/5 on Astralwerks - that much more fitting. The track (for which Chuck D of Public Enemy re-recorded his "rock the funky beat" vocal) sees a new video released today by SF-based siblings Morgan and Finley Wise of Raremink.
Shot on location in San Francisco in a fast-paced, single-day shoot, the "Pyramid Scheme" video captures the essence of San Francisco's wonderful Chinatown community. From the Tai Chi dance, to the old-school practical stunts, to a mixture of traditional camera techniques into a digital workflow, the video is guided by the directors' vision to merge the past with the future.
