Look! Up in the sky! It’s a birdg! It’s a planeg! It’s Supermeng!
That’s right, kids: breakcore freakazoid Otto von Schirach has a new superhero identity, and it’s really hard to say out loud. Supermeng is both the title of his next album, coming this August, and the name of his new all-powerful alter ego, which according to this press release right here was created by a “secret fluid injected into his third eye.” Are third eyes less squishy and viscous than regular eyes? No? Then that must’ve hurt like a motherfucker.
Supermeng is coming out on Monkeytown, the label run by Otto’s fellow dance music weirdos Modeselektor, which gives us an excuse to play this post out with one of our favorite WTF videos, “Evil Twin,” a collab betwixt Von Schirach and the Modeselektor guys. Before we do that, though, check out these track previews from Supermeng. Sounds like OvS is gettin mad funky this time out. And yes, I just used “mad” and “funky” in the same sentence. This music has that kind of effect on me.
OK, now that that’s out of the way, behold the awesome power of “Evil Twin.” Fun with Quicktime!
