French electronic duo Cassius is back with an unlikely collaboration with Cat Power (“The Greatest“!) and Mike D (from the Beastie Boys) and bring us a surreal tropical, explosive and fun video.
Cassius – Action ft. Cat Power, Mike D
Its officially the first days of spring and what better way to celebrate and prepare for longer days and a bit more sunshine than the return of Cassius (Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass), this track and its deep, rhythmic drums and beats, with Cat Power´s always sensual voice and the rhymes of Mike D.
The video shows the duo going into a phone booth “Ibifornia”. And from the photo booth, they are transported to a tropical, bizarre world, under the art and visuals direction of contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan’s Toilet Paper collective, and director Yuri Ancarani. Parrots, gorillas and golden body suits are only some of the things that dance around on a tropical island and make us want to hear the extended mix ASAP!
