Captured our hearts with the K-Swift intro, RIP :-(. The aesthetic of this video is super YouTube, crazy pixel glows and green-screen artifacts left and right, but laptop speakers are not the place for Blaqstarr. His ping-ponging snares, his ping-ponging space-voice demands wall-mount surround sound or at least triple-flange Shure buds. But this is just the tip of the Blaqstarr iceberg lately: after the jump we've got a Black Swan sampling video for "Turning Out," off his recent Divine EP. And below is maybe our favorite song of these three, the confusingly-titled "Ride (Rider Girl Remix), The Club Pledge of Allegiance," all blown-out synth-nightmare club, our favorite shit to shout to.
