Winner of the DJ Schmolli video competition against some tough competition, this is a video mashup of Red Hot Chilli Peppers vs Bob Marley vs Prodigy using their amazing Glastonbury performance, as well as Ofra Haza (yes I know it's not her but it always makes me think of her...) and RATM which is sampled in the Prodigy track. Had fun cos of nasty digital blocking on the Prodigy video so I decided to add grain which worked far better...
Also included are some sneaky clips of Kool Keith ('Smack My Bitch Up' sample) and Randy Weston (that organ part on the Prodigy track)....so it's a sample history fest in visual form!
I think the revolutionary atmosphere in Egypt also had some bearing on the choices, too...all those flags (all of my videos have what posh people call 'visual motifs' - this one is the flag).
Thanks to DJ Schmolli for the comp and the other competitors...I look forward to seeing their versions.
