Cologne-based outlet Noorden have announced the imminent release of Ikpathua’s debut album “Tape Paranoia”. The mini-album will be released on cassette format in a limited run of 50 copies, scheduled for release on 8th August 2015.
Today, we’re glad to bring you the exclusive video premiere of the mesmerising title track’s visual rendition, directed by talented photographer and videographer Peter Kunz.
IKPATHUA – TAPE PARANOIA
Presented in a shadowy, ultra-minimalist black-and-white scenario, the video shows a male dancer moving in and out of rhythm along with Tape Paranoia‘s delicately balanced ambiance and subtle percussive work.
Contorting himself in a blurred-out setting, his movements are intensified by a close-up equally mapped onto his modulations yet drifting out-of-focus in tempo with gloomy, spectral movements.
No doubt, Kunz’s elegantly-crafted visuals fit Ikpathua’s graceful soundscapes like a glove.
