WATCH: ‘A Trip With Ego’ Video Mixtape
With the news of just signing to Aussie label Modular and with his latest live club tour of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa just wrapping up, tripped out audio visual DJ odyssey EGO shows no sign of slowing down with the release of his visual mixtape extravaganza, appropriately dubbed ‘A TRIP WITH EGO‘.
At just over a half hour long, ‘A TRIP WITH EGO’ is an unrelenting force of heavily manipulated visual effects colliding with samples of nostalgic cinema and cuts of the latest and hottest bass music tracks and remixes the scene has to offer.
Offering an insight into what EGO’S live shows entail, the visual mixtape sends you down the rabbit-hole in a haze of kaleidoscopic imagery and sonic delight, you’ll see disjointed cameos from The Simpsons, Looney Tunes, retro video games and more all flying in between inter-dimensional planes.
With the addition of this mixtape, you can tell that the incredibly talented EGO is definitely onto something unique here, and he knows it, and with the news of his current signing to Modular, I for one cannot wait for what’s next for this audio visualist.
