THE F****** CATALINA WINE MIXER.
This is our first official music video! Wait... how rude of me, allow me to introduce ourselves. We are The Flux, and this is our first official music video for our song "Catalina Wine Mixer"! It is the first single from our forthcoming album "Whiskeyland" out in September 2012. We are very excited to have this out just in time for the end of Summer. The song is a fun snapshot into what we do as a post-genre experimental hip-hop collective. We mix many different styles of music together and like to have fun while we do it.
We recorded "Catalina Wine Mixer" a while back and have been working very hard to get it completed. The song is inspired by the classic one-liner from the film "Step Brothers" in the scene where Brennan and Dale (Will Ferrell and John C. Reily) step in to save the wine mixer from an entertainment disaster. Remember when the 1908s Billy Joe cover band leaves in the middle of the function? It was a moment of magic, capturing the essence of pulling something off beyond all odds. Kind of like our story.
The music for "Catalina Wine Mixer" was recorded in the bedroom of our producer, Rudeluv, about a year ago. Rudeluv and guitarist Tombot5000 were inspired by the energy in drum and bass and started riffing what was to become the song. Our MC, Feekee, jumped in with the line that would shape the rest of the song "The fuckin' catlina wine mixer..."
After finishing the song, Phil Gorgeous and Feekee came up with a concept for a music video. It was like "The Hangover" meets "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas". The concept was parallel realities or perceptions. Where we see ourselves in an endless summer, partying and dancing with beautiful women on the beach, we are actually in a drunken stupor in the middle of the desert losing our minds. Where we are partying in a fancy waterfront mansion we are in fact in a grimy hotel in the middle of nowhere...tearing the place apart. We see ourselves one way when we can't see what is really happening to us.
Thank you for coming to our page to check out what we've been working on. We hope you enjoy "Catalina Wine Mixer" as candy for your eyes and your ears. We had a lot of fun making it and are extremely fortunate to do so. Subscribe to our channel to get more eye/ear candy from us.
