Video: Mount Kimbie Live at the Boiler Room

April 08, 2011


Following the “We are all Young Turks” intro, once Mount Kimbie begin their Boiler Room set, the first thing they play is a quote from Harmony Korine’s racially complicated Proenza Schouler vehicle Act Da Fool: “I believe that the earth is a big ball of shit—that’s why the dinosaur died out. And everyone gonna die sooner or later. That’s why I love cigarettes so much. I hope I don’t die for a long time though. I still got things I want to look at.” Puts you in the ZONE. If only all British melancholy dance shows started this way. This live set exists as a downloadable podcast, but it’s worth watching this first-person fan vid, worth seeing the live guitar come out, the moment at 23:30 when things stop being a DJ mix and start being a full-on jam.
