Electronic dance act The Young Punx have been working hand-in-hand with Dutch cult artist Han Hoogerbrugge for 7 years now, collaborating on videos, album artwork and live visuals. For The Young Punx' 3rd album "All These Things Are Gone" due to be released in February 2014, Hoogerbrugge is responding to each of the tracks on the album with a short "A.D.D Video" lasting around 30 seconds in length. As Hoogerbrugge explains:
"We now live in a world where people only have the attention-span to watch a video online for the first 30 seconds or so, so let's just make the whole concept work in those 30 seconds."
The second video in the series is for the track Kowloon Kickback a crazed revisiting of 1930s big band jazz which The Young Punx composed from scratch and recorded live on 100% original 1930s equipment, before mixing and mashing it up with modern dance music techniques.
Hoogerbrugge responds to the music in obtuse and mindbending form. Hand animating a characteristically bizarre collection of darkly comic and grotesque characters he re-interprets the pulsing retro rhythms as... well.. a kick in the balls!
More animations will be released over the coming months, building up to a full journey through the new album, as viewed through the artist's own unique world.
