Ikonika – ‘Mr. Cake’ video

24 July 2013

It’s not like we haven’t seen it before, if not as a weird cross breed of 1986 Sega arcade game Out Run and The Sims, then at least in the New Media oeuvre of Cory Arcangel. Even so, we can’t get enough of the RGB colours and Namco fonts in British DJ Ikonika‘s ‘Mr. Cake’ video by artist Rob Walker, also responsible for the CGI in videos for the likes of Terror Danjah and Morgan Zarate.

The video comes in advance of Aerotropolis, coming out on Hyperdub, Monday, July 26, and is an ideal complement to the sometimes dark, sometimes glitch new album based around the weird limbo of air travel and the airport. See the video below. **
