Alex Burkat’s ‘Tarot’ Video Looks Into the Past With A$AP Rocky, Le1f, Flying Lotus
Brooklyn producer readies 'Tarot' EP for 100% Silk June 11
Alex Burkat trades in rich techno and heady house that’s doesn’t skimp on atmosphere or beat. His work is as club-ready as it is headphone-friendly, which makes it a perfect fit for Los Angeles’ 100% Silk, a DIY dance label that functions like an old-school punk imprint. The Brooklyn-via-Philly producer will release his Tarot EP with them on June 11, and in honor of that, he’s now sharing the music video for the titular track. Burkat edited the clip himself using entirely iPhone 5-shot photos, some edited in Instagram. Though static individually, the constantly shuffling images imply movement, celebration, collaboration, and performance, stringing together a series of moments in the life of a man whose world revolves around music. Also, the guest list is quite impressive: Flying Lotus, A$AP Rocky, Jamie Lidell, Le1f, Matt Shadetek, Machinedrum, Chrissie Murderbot, Joker, and many, many more. As for the track, “Tarot” glistens, gushes, thrums, and thumps.
