As longtime admirers, then, we were particularly excited for the December release of his new, self-referentially titled single “Telepatik” – especially as it featured Kid Recordings artist Betty Black (otherwise known as KUDU vocalist Sylvia Black – sensing a pattern here?). The new year now brings a wildly eclectic remixes package of that same track, out Friday, February 9, with alluring reworkings by the likes of Alex & Alex Zelenka, Duke B. and Marten Cardona.
To fete the release, BlackBook premieres here the surreal new video for “Telepatik,” by venerated French visual artist Systaime.
“Systaime is a Glitch artist we collaborated with in 2013,” Hetier explains, “to make an alternate video for Telepopmusik’s ‘Fever.’ I recently saw a video treatment he did on some live footage of Sleater Kinney, taken from a riot grrrl documentary, so I asked him to use the same treatment on the original vid by Agvstin, with the SUPERMUSIQUE remix.”
We think you’ll agree, the results are nothing short of mind-bending.
