New Video: The Hallucinatory Sounds and Visuals of Ink Jet’s “Buttermilk”

Up-and-coming, Brooklyn-based electronic music producer and artist Ink Jet has developed a reputation for a sound that has been compared favorably to the likes of The Field, The Avalanches and Basement Jaxx among others. Cold Shoulder, the Brooklyn based producer and artist was recently released through Japanese cassette label Gohan Tapes, and the EP’s latest single “Buttermilk” pairs layers of shimmering house music-inspired synths, heavily distorted vocal samples, handclaps, stuttering drum programming and boom bap in a hallucinogenic and cosmic-leaning production that to my ears nods at Come With Us-era The Chemical Brothers and early Daft Punk.

The recently released music video pairs the trippy audio with cheesy 80s Japanimation — and for anyone who grew up in the 80s, as I did, the video will remind you of running home after school to catch shitty and incredibly goofy cartoons.
