Following yesterday’s reveal of the new single “Crime Cutz” (out today) via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 and Pitchfork, Holy Ghost! drop the official “Crime Cutz” video today and reveal the tracklist for the upcoming Crime Cutz EP out April 29th on DFA Records.
Featuring a multi-panel primary color light display hand-built and programmed by Holy Ghost!’s Nick Milhiser and Alex Frankel themselves for less than $500, the retro-futurist lightboxes synchronize with the track’s 8-bit beat, shimmying synths, and Wild Style soundtrack-inspired drum breaks. The display is made out of colored plexiglass, plywood, and 224 standard light bulbs (7 light bulbs per panel) and runs on a midi-controlled power supply.
