Champagne Drip – Open Your Eyes [TMN VIDEO PREMIERE]

We’re huge fans of Champagne Drip here at The Music Ninja, and getting the chance to premiere something new from this fun producer is always a treat. We’ve got the visuals for his stellar track, “Open Your Eyes”, and they are CRAZY. Created through Hyperspektiv, this video distorts reality into a clash of colors, noise, and sporadic effects that warp perfectly in time with the music. Champagne Drip’s sound fits right in with this trippy type of video production, giving “Open Your Eyes” the full experience of melding song with sight. Interestingly enough, Justin Boreta, who you may know as a third of The Glitch Mob, is a developer for Hyperspektiv. He exclaims,

The goal with Hyperspektiv is to make digital video art easy and accessible. We wanted to make a powerful tool that professionals would want to use, but it’s also easy enough for someone who isn’t tech savvy to enjoy using it. The idea is to have the app itself get out of the way and to dive straight into real-time creativity.

It’s a wild concept all around, so don’t be surprised if you see it pop up more and more. If you’re really feeling this tune, give the Conrank and Kid Froopy remixes a spin also! Be sure to support Champagne Drip on SoundCloud, Facebook, and Twitter. Check out the video below and enjoy!

Summer In The Winter (Champagne Drip Remix)[feat. Fantastic Modern]

Mad Decent always knows how to put together a stellar remix EP, and their latest collection of talent stems from Grandtheft and his Quit This City project. The last time we heard from Champagne Drip, we had the chance to discuss cereal and other ridiculous things, so needless to say, we’re excited for the chance to premiere his newest release and massive contribution to this EP.

The remix starts off in typical Champagne Drip fashion, bobbing and weaving with a woozy groove that feels like you’re exploring a neon coral reef until it ratchets up the intensity as Mad Decent releases are ought to do. Pulling together elements of indie electronic, future, and even a slight bit of synthwave, this remix chalks up another win for the always interesting Champagne Drip, who’s signature mix of the aforementioned influences is washed with a sense of wonder throughout. Don’t miss out the free download!

Champagne Drip Discusses Cereal, Aliens, and New Single [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

Champagne Drip

Following his massive Journey Into The Champagne Sea project with Mad Decent, Champagne Drip returns with a crisp and energetic new single that encapsulates an extensive feeling of escapism. “Moonlight” floats along with a jubilant sense of wonder that crashes out of your speakers like a sonic tidal wave. It’s a testament to the overarching concept that Champagne Drip is striving to emulate, and it’s certainly one that looks to broaden the horizons of the perpetually fickle world that is electronic music. We were lucky enough to have a chat with the man himself, so we figured, since many interviews focused on his former approach of remaining anonymous, it’s time to flip the script and talk about a little ridiculousness with this compelling producer. Don’t miss out on the free download of “Moonlight” HERE, and catch him on December 1st at Beta Nightclub in Denver, courtesy of Vinnie Got Bass.

TMN: What three things are always inside your fridge or freezer, no matter what?

Champagne of course… Also I always have kimchi and miso stocked too. Can’t live without fermented stuff.

TMN: What’s the most embarrassing song or album in your collection?

Hmmmm. This is a tricky one because I have so many records that I should be embarrassed of but I’m proud to own them hahaha. Maybe Sheldon Allman’s “Songs for the 21st Centry”. I cringe every time it comes on shuffle and I usually skip it, but it’s hilarious.

TMN: If you were a box of cereal, which one would you be?

I think I would be a box of Freakies. My favorite breakfast cereal… Urkel-Os are pretty cool too.

TMN: If you could score the soundtrack to any TV show or movie, past or present, what would it be?

Oh man, tough question. I really would love to score a movie someday. Blade Runner keeps coming to mind. I would never want to contend with Vangelis on that soundtrack, but that movie is ripe for moody ambient scoring.

TMN: If aliens landed on earth and asked what music is, who would you play them first?

I would probably play Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” since I’m currently obsessed with that piece and used parts of it to write “Moonlight”. If not, I might play them Ween’s “The Pod” just to see what they thought.
