In this post I talk about music that inspired me as electronic producer. Enjoy the music and short reading;

Who doesn’t like cartoons? Here is a selection of some animated music video clips. Enjoy!

Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood

Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by musician Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett. These members are fictional and are not personas of any “real life” musicians involved in the project.

Their fictional universe is explored through the band’s music videos, as well as a number of other short cartoons.

Gorillaz – Saturnz Barz

“Saturnz Barz” featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan.  It was released as the first single from their fifth studio album Humanz

Daft Punk – Aerodynamic

Aerodynamic” is the second track on Daft Punk’s second studio album, Discovery. The song is notable for its thirty-four-second-long guitar tapping solo, at which point all music cuts off and the guitar solo plays, performing with heavy usage of arpeggios.

Contains a major sample from the song ‘Il Macquillage Lady’ by Sister Sledge. A great example on how to get into sampling as a producer…

Stromae – Carmen

Belgian Stromae established himself in both the hip hop and electronic music genres. A great track with some great animation and a social critical message.
