If you're not going to any of Basement Jaxx's European tour dates for their new album Scars (which drops today), you can at least simulate the experience by watching this old-school trippy "visual" (yeah we said it) that Dutch animator Jan van Nuenen made for their live show. His thorny cornucopia, seed tossing, crabby parasites and vicious carnivorous plants give Kelis' chorus, "Kiss me when I wake up," a totally different (scarier) context. Their shows will open with this video, so if you're there and have indulged in any psychedelics hopefully you won't already "be on your journey." Check out van Nuenen's other awesome videos here, which deal with nature usurping civilization and industrial malaise.
