Without condoning drug use in any fashion, I present to you the greatest music video of 2012. Scarring my retinas like nothing since Shaq’s Kazaam, the video for a remixed version of Korallreven’s “Sa Sa Samoa” by Elite Gymnastics is indescribable. Perhaps its an advert for ecstasy? Or maybe its the hyped, four-minute version of Gaspar Noé’s Enter The Void on speed. Whatever it is, it’s ridiculously awesome–the audio representation of what it feels like to be in some dirty Japanese warehouse that’s blasting 90’s rave at 4:35 in the morning.
The remix, which mixes in sped up elements of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” lifts off on a few piano notes before blasting the ears with rapid tempos and heavy synth dissonance, rendering Korallreven’s contributions almost unrecognizable. It’s not for the faint of heart, nor is it one for classification. Elite Gymnastics self-labeled genre for the track? “ヘ(^_^ヘ)(ノ^_^)ノ.”
