Cat Velez - 17th June 2016

Mimi Cave has delivered this music video for hip-hop artist Danny Brown's track When It Rain and its all about high energy movement caught on glitched out handicams - all wrapped up with a heavy, DIY feel. 

The video gets at the heart of the track, with an intensity in its choppy editing and layering of found footage channeling heaps of attitude with busted-up VHS clips of various hip hop dance circles. Mimi Cave goes beyond embracing the videotape glitches and basically goes to town with the trippy artifacts and unnatural colour combos...

Did she throw her cameras against a wall or something? Because it's really working.
