Exile's "Population Control" is a trippy, mind-bending video scored by Samyiam, Dibiase and Free The Robots who all remixed the same track featured on 'AM/FM.' Inspired by Exile's "We Are All In Power" video, visual artist Greg "The Dude" Ponstingl created the video using thousands of still images and striking visual effects to make a boombox literally come to life. The result is a rather trippy experience, and if you are prone to seizures, look away.
When I first watched "We are all in Power," I was blown away. A year later, I was able to meet with Ex and start working on this video. This project gave me the chance to be experimental and work differently. Using 3 songs in one video was something that intrigued me because, in my opinion, the traditional "music video" is a way of the past. We need visual artists to think outside the box and re-invent the "music video."
- Depicts the contrast of 3 types of men, the values of perspective; and presents 'Da 1's narrative with a conscious assessment. At 2:56 a.m. a stroll to Lucy's drive-in diner for sweet bread represents where 'through life's dark time we can succumb to indulgence as substitute for nourishment. So soon does the average man forfeit sustenance for sensation. There must be balance, and with focus towards wholeness- we can each realize our vice's true meaning. This mini-movie introduction to Da 1(Ceremon1ous)'s approaching "The Man With A Heart For A Brain" EP, represents confronting weaknesses and 'divorcing The Devil's food'!!
