Jason Forrest – Raunchy (Video) + Raunchy – Jokers Of The Scene Remix

Mar 28 2011

Jason Forrest’s new video for “Raunchy” is first and foremost a warning to everyone that they should not make eye contact or try to engage that guy at the mall who’s wearing a sweater with horses on it and rocking a mane of shoulder length hair while browsing for muskets. It’ll just end badly.

But more than that, it’s a stompingly good return from Forrest, who curates North American dance music juggernaut label Nightshifters. The track begins as a laid back clap-along affair, things slowly descend into a dimension of thrashing guitar solos and screaming horns that gradually becomes hotter and hotter until you notice that your shoes have melted onto the floor in a sticky multicolor mess.

Accompanying it is a rework from Canadian contingent Jokers of The Scene, who hone their tact of distilling their remixes to one gigantic eight minute “just-as-the-sun’s-coming-up” moment of ecstatic joy, before veering back off into the darkness. It’s a well paced track that would sound perfect being played somewhere where you can see the stars above you.

Grab “Raunchy” on iTunes now and get some extra goodies, and simultaneously be on the look out for Jason’s new album “The Everything” – Coming April 15th, 2011 on Staatsakt records.
