Watch a Beautifully Tripped-Out Animation From Populous
The video for the Italian producer's latest single, 'Azul Oro,' was directed by Emanuele Kabu.
Next month, Italian producer Andrea Mangia (a.k.a. Populous) will release his latest album, Azulejos, via Wonderwheel.
Mangia last popped up on our pages when he released a track from the remix package of his previous album,Night Safari,which was released on Bad Panda Records back in September 2014. For his latest album—his fourth solo full-length—Mangia looks to the sounds his new base in Lisbon, Portugal, a place Mangia says became both his studio and muse. Armed with only a laptop, a small MIDI keyboard, and a microphone, Mangia wandered the city collecting field recordings before channeling them into emotive tapestries of sound that act as his love letter to Lisbon.
For the album’s latest single, Mangia enlisted Emanuele Kabu to direct a stunning video full of awe-inspiring animations that perfectly fit the genre-defying track. You can watch the video for “Azul Oro” in full via the player above, with the album available for pre-order here.
