Jogyo’s video for “Rude Boy” isn’t exactly new, but it just popped onto our radar thanks to New York watering hole Rockbar’s upcoming Queer Music Festival. The Jamaican-born, New York-based duo are playing the two-day event on June 8, and their frenetic mix of breakneck drum-and-bass and infectious dancehall rhymes definitely caught our attention.
Brooklyn electro duo Light Asylum are masters of moody dance music, and in the video for their latest single, “House of Dust,” out singer Shannon Funchess is scary as all hell. The clip is filthy—in the mud-caked, ooze-dripping sense—and the song itself is as bleak as a charred forest. Yet, despite Funchess’s fearsome performance and the overall sense of dread in “Dust,” it really is a surprisingly danceable track. And we can’t deny there is something oddly beautiful about the video’s almost macabre imagery.
