While the genre-ambiguous style of Grimes’ music may be an acquired taste, the overarching brand curated by Canadian musician Claire Boucher is hopefully intriguing enough for you to want to find out. The music video for her 2012 single 'Genesis', directed by Grimes herself, is certainly interesting, to say the least!

A diverse set of locations provide a seemingly random range of backdrops, from a secluded woodland scene to a sprawling desert, with a bunch of Instagram filters to maintains a surreal flavour throughout.

It’s the foreground subjects however, that elevate things to a whole other level of odd. Grimes is seen swinging a sword one minute and sharing a limousine with a python the next, as we randomly jump between each of the bizarre scenes.

Arguably the star of the show, in visual terms at least, is Brooke Candy, she’s the girl with the pink dreads, who literally shines out from the rest of the cast, thanks to an eye-catching, metal outfit; easily the most memorable thing about both the song and music video together!

Before you rush off to appreciate Grimes’ Genesis music video as the piece of modern art it truly is, why not learn how to make the track’s bass sound with DRC in under 6 minutes?

How to make the arpeggio, bass and pad sounds from Daft Punk 'Son Of Flynn' in DRC...

Published on 20 Sep 2019

In the world of electronic music, Daft Punk need no introduction. Effortlessly cool, they’ve built a unique brand that’s as recognisable by sight as it is by sound, with technology forming the backbone of their image. Robots are cool, flashing LED lights are cool, and with Daft Punk you get both; iconic helmets and hi-tech futuristic outfits have been a fashion fixture since the emergence of the robot personas the Parisian pair adopted.On September 9th 1999, three months before the world was scheduled to end due to the infamous ‘millennium bug’, a sampler they were using randomly crashed and exploded, (reportedly because the date was 9/9/99) literally sparking the creation of the robots. The idea was a perfect fit for the DJ duo to maintain their anonymity, having previously sported a farago of face masks during their early live gigs together.With a style inspired and influenced by science fiction films, Daft Punk were an obvious choice for the director of 2010’s ‘Tron Legacy’ Joseph Kosinski when deciding who would score the film’s soundtrack. When asked about his decision prior to the film’s release at San Diego Comic Con 2009, he replied with a rhetorical ‘How could you not at least go to those guys?’.Thankfully Daft Punk said yes of course, and we have a fantastic, atmospheric, synth orchestral fusion soundtrack as a result. We take a look at the beautiful ‘Son Of Flynn’ in this week’s video as we recreate the track’s arpeggio, bass and pad sounds using DRC, with a little help from DLYM and K7D too.Click here to download the Ableton project fileProviding techno logic around the world,Team Imaginando...
