SCI+TEC signed Montrealer Johnny Trika has been making a statement on stages across the minimal techno scene with his banging EP, Punk Fools. After label boss Dubfire showcased the title track in his own sets last summer, anticipation has grown for the release of the synth-filled masterpiece. Juxtaposed against a catchy bassline, "Punk Fools" has been further enhanced with the release of its original music video.
Directed by xCult, composed of Anthony Pecoraro and Dean H., the video compliments the track in its hypnotic simplicity. The kaleidoscope of trippy visuals and skateboard manoeuvres combined with the perfectly timed ambience of Trika's music makes it easy to lose yourself in the video. Although techno itself does not often lend itself to visual expression, in some instances, like this one, it's warranted.
