As part of Warp's ongoing collaboration with Channel 4's Random Acts series, we've already seen Battles' video for "Dot Net". This time round the exclusive comes from Kanye West collaborator and production mastermind Hudson Mohawke, and it's a video for the track "System," taken from his recent record Lantern.

Continued below...

“System is about big cities and screens, manic focused euphoria and cinematic panoramas", says one of the video's directors, Nic Hamilton. "It is the experience of NYC from a helicopter at dawn with a 4G connection." What this means, essentially, is that the video features a buttload of shots of skyscrapers and is the closest you'll get to flying around a city without transfiguring into a robotic bird. Watch below, and then check out the trailer for our Hudson Mohawke documentary, Very First Breath, coming soon:
