Dope video by Greg Ponstingl for the Samyiam, Dibiase and Free The Robot remixes of Exile’s “Population Control.”
Exile’s “Population Control” is a trippy, mind-bending video scored by Samyiam, Dibiase and Free The Robots who all remixed the same track featured on ‘AM/FM.’ Inspired by Exile’s “We Are All In Power” video, visual artist Greg “The Dude” Ponstingl created the video using thousands of still images and striking visual effects to make a boombox literally come to life. The result is a rather trippy experience, and if you are prone to seizures, look away.
When I first watched “We are all in Power,” I was blown away. A year later, I was able to meet with Ex and start working on this video. This project gave me the chance to be experimental and work differently. Using 3 songs in one video was something that intrigued me because, in my opinion, the traditional “music video” is a way of the past. We need visual artists to think outside the box and re-invent the “music video.”
