A special place for a small-format video field dedicated, once upon a time, to video technique experiments, unorthodox art directions and/or kinetic performances. As previously discussed this is a genre who has gotten a bit harsher to collect and research, there's some ways to start amassing a personal stash in a reliable way and check information regarding content creators, but in recent times these have gotten limited. The IMVDb site is a good place to start although it seems its staff activity has halted, at least considering that community entries have been on hold for a year now, so it should probably be taken as an introductory resource rather than a golden rule. Archive.org also features "small" batches of standard quality files, so it's also a most-see for new adventurers. Featured here is one of the early products made by the famous Ninja Tune label, as the founders of said company Coldcut made a collaboration with Hexstatic to create a small Audiovisual single that shows the very early and pioneering technology of their own real-time video manipulation software, something also called video scratching as it remixes and manipulates video as it were a vinyl on a disc jockey table, with audio included. Something that just very recently has been considered a normal mark in video sites, and mostly as an evolution of golden age Youtube Poop which is at its earliest around 2007; Coldcut made Timber in 1997. It also comes a decade after the same guys were already written in history with gold for popularizing and somewhat creating the standard of pausing cassettes, cutting the tape at that point, taping it over cheap copies of the same recording, doing it several times with several things and ending up with a frankenstein tape that basically invented the UK Garage scene along with the Big Beat scene, and by default the Remix style of musicianship, something that in a very short time would be refined and raised as an art by artists such as Todd Edwards. Highly criticized these days due to being seen as careless for the decline of the cult electronica label that was Ninja Tune, the Coldcut duo is somehow still underrated even when their influence has been omnipresent.
>>965 Ninja Tune was my favorite label for a while. There are still a few tracks with (what sounded like) movie dialogue that I never sourced. Maybe the dialogue came from old time radio dramas instead. I haven't seen many Ninja Tune videos but I remember this ZEN TV DVD, looks like Timber was on it.

>>966 >ZEN TV DVD That's where i took, very nice DVD Yes, back in the high school when i downloaded their albums released in the early years it also became my favorite label, after years i still hear some of them regularly. They were heavily into visual aesthetics too, usually cover art from Amon Tobin or Mr. Scuff would feature art styles that would be identified solely with them. In terms of music videos things would be more experimental, ironically enough for my good/bad luck i discovered Neotropic just a long time later due to her video for Sunflower Girl, i already knew the 15 Levels of Magnification album which was a favorite but never bothered checking the rest because i didn't really like Mr. Brubakers' Strawberry Alarm Clock, which is considered her very best, honestly is the one i least like, the rest are in my opinion superior in 15 levels Her story is quite interesting, at one point she experimented with film camera with old stock and/or a compromised body with slight light leaks and made some stuff that resembles the nostalgic polaroid/70's home movie aesthetic that would come later in popularity around the late 00's, again as with many Ninja Tune artists she was slightly ahead and i think did a short movie about that around 1999 to 2000, this video is an excerpt of it i believe. Not much going but it has its charm, especially when photography circles these last years have been trying to mimic the same style. From my part i think i have a plan to gather some stuff, but it would be a one-time hit so i need to gather as much information as i can to download extensively for a couple of weeks. My plan was continuing researching by director, make a list, and wait for the moment; for it to be worthwhile i will like to cover the vast majority of big-timer creators and at least a dozen obscure ones. This will take months and i hope to just start posting about them when i have the catalogue so i hope we can live with a few readily available examples of one-shots or short-lived ventures. In this case with Coldcut and Neotropic they made their own videos so double merit for them, usually the musician will at most suggest an idea or art style, the rest of the technical matter is stricly the director's unless you are Fred Durst
Good news for vintage "music videos", one of the rarest broadcasts in Italy will continue this summer so we get the chance to grab a bunch of never seen footage although it's almost always from between 1960 to 2010ish
