Matthias Zimmermann, the southwest German producer who’s made his name this year releasing insanely-drummed, vaguely climate-related dance EPs—Isla, Oasis, Mountain—has another in the chamber, Botanica Dub, out November 12th on Sound Pellegrino. Watch a short, fantastically colorful video for “Quincy” above, directed by Ill-Studio. Botanica is up for preorder now (and on iTunes). Label head Teki Latex had this to say:
Ill-Studio, the graphic collective responsible for all Sound Pellegrino artwork and the art direction of our magazine L’Annuel have assembled this amazing video for Matthias Zimmermann’s “Quincy” track. I look at it as a trippy saturated statement of interdependence between nature and technology, where computers are brought out in the forest like in the artwork for James Stinson’s “The Other People Place” LP and there is an actual conversation between synths and birds. Technology is not looking for beef with nature, it’s just chillin’, minding its own business, and it makes more sense than ever. In this moment of perfect cosmic realisation we see magic, sensuality and quantum physics converge in a totally focused rainbow-coloured lenticular 360° landscape, a visual testimonial of the feeling of certainty which pushed us to sign Matthias Zimmermann for an album deal (and hopefully much more) for the first time in the history of our cut-the-middle-man one-off-based no-strings-attached label. Please enjoy this young German genius’s latest offering the “Botanica Dub” EP. EXCELSIOR!
