For the video for "Rider Girl," a kind and jilted "She Lives In My Lap"-type paean, Maya's boy Blaqstarr took it down a notch to lover-burn, stacked his hair in a pyramid and cut up some National Geographic and Elle Decor's. An organic sub woofer follows one silhouette that windmills and writhes through all the surreal cut paper jewel worlds. The beat's easy now, ready to get wrecked and tronixed by every Baltimore club head with Ableton. Blaqstarr Divine EP is out today on N.E.E.T. He'll be in in New York this week, at Santos Party House on Thursday and Good Units on Saturday.
