Mark Ronson & The Business INTL: "The Bike Song" from Warren Fu on Vimeo.
A song about loyal bikes that fight back! Yes! Très élégant! Scott Schuman would have a field day.
This duo of dance-pop music videos for British producer/ DJ Mark Ronson's new project, Mark Ronson & the Business Intl, has seriously got me hooked. For what it is, the new album Record Collection is great, full of catchy, experimental dance tunes (you can stream the whole thing via Grooveshark/ Flavorpill here). I know I'm being sold something with these videos, but (kind of like in Mad Men), I'm buying the pitch--and the salesmen--more than the product.
Chicago-native Warren Fu directed, and I'm loving his work, too. The Guardian has a bio here. He worked at Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic as a visual effects art director for five years, so maybe that explains the retro-future vibe these videos have got going on.
