Let’s just get this out of the way up front: there’s a lot of nakedness in this video. OK. So. UK DJ Tim Simenon (better known as Bomb The Bass) is set to release Future Chaos, the first BTB album in 14 years. If you’re not up on UK DJs, you might remember his best for “Butterfingers,” Future Chaos’s awesome first single with Fujiya & Miyagi. Now, he’s onto something “So Special” with regular collaborator Paul Conboy. According to the video’s directors, Nathalie Teirlinck and Ben Van Alboom, the clip “was inspired by Magnum photographer Burt Glinn’s 1971 black and white series on prostitutes in New York. only we took to the streets of Brussels…” We should mention that it’s NSFW, unless your work is cool with women writhing around half naked on the floor and folks going back to hotel rooms with stripping trannies. In that case, cool job.
In addition to the shadowy neon-lit streetwalking, BTB is playing their first shows in 20 years at the Astoria in London on 6/4, and will be doing two festivals this summer (the Big Chill dance music festival in the UK, and Lethargy ’08 in Zurich). Oh wait nevermind, we forgot — Electronica’s dead.
