I like it when I find a musician's personal YouTube account they put up some neat stuff on there from time to time. Today is my day off and I got to snoopin arund on YT again, so I thought I'd share a couple of my favouries I've found, starting with Bibio's; simply called mrbibio. The first video I have from his is him toying around with some typically Bibio sounding cut up sampling bizness.
The second surprised me a little, Bibio's channel is filled with Guitar jams and whatnot that you'd expect from him, but while browsing his videos I found this. He actually does a really, really good job of it,especially considering his usual territory. I'd love to get my hands on an MP3 of this!
Speaking of house, here we have my other favourite YouTube with Rex The Dog's. (rexthedog1980) I've mentioned it before, but he does some cool stuff too, first off is another live jam session like the ones in those Bibio vids which shows off a fair amount of the lovely analogue tech that he has lying around in his studio.
But the highlight of it all for me is Rex covering his own song I Look Into Mid-Air on a circuit bent Casio VL Tone. Most Circuit bending videos are all about glitchy sounds which is fun for a while but I never see much actual music being put down, which is what made this video so special. The end result sounds like something you'd hear coming out of a cartridge titled N64 or something, it's brilliant definitely check it out!
