Published Oct 22, 2015Revisiting this year's excellent Lantern, producer Hudson Mohawke has shared a new visual for album cut "System."
Rather than feature footage of his native Glasgow, however, the clip offers up aerial shots of Manhattan. It's a stunning, high-definition experience that perfectly pairs with the song.
The video was directed by Dominic Flannigan and Nic Hamilton. Of the clip, Flannigan shared the following statement:
A favourite from Lantern, with 'System' Hud Mo was inspired by some tear-out Jeff Mills offset with those minimalist classical arpeggios - and when considering an associated film I thought of classic rave visuals and cg stock art of the late 90s where the grid of the city would be superimposed with circuit boards and processors. Here we updated it for 2015, commissioning our own 4K helicopter shoot over Manhattan which Nic Hamilton treated, placing in a CG environment that evokes Philip Glass "1000 Airplanes On The Roof."

Hudson Mohawke has several North American dates coming up with The-Dream, including a Canadian stop in Toronto on November 13. You can see the complete schedule here.
