Daniel Avery, known for being a Fabric DJ, has a great and sophisticated new video for the song “All I Need.” It's definitely NSFW, but it escapes the gaudiness or raunchiness of the internet these days to provide something more substantial and artistic -- the art of desire by not revealing anything. The music and the video go great together, feeding off of each other to make a bigger whole.
“There is an intimate sound at the start of the track that reminds me of the moment you wake up in bed with someone right there in your face, breathing. I was thinking of things such as internet dating: being close to someone yet remaining very distant,” said the director Lewis Kyle White when speaking to Nowness.
"All I Need" is from the Daniel Avery album Drone Logic, which you can listen to parts of below. The music is immediate and fresh, sounding very right now instead of falling into the trap of recreating the past of electronic music.
“Although I wanted to make something very current, something that could only have been made in 2013 - I found myself going back to records like the Chemical Brothers’ Surrender and Dig Your Own Hole as well as albums by Four Tet and Underworld. Records with a real dynamic; records that take you with them. None of those albums sound like ‘computer music’. That was definitely something I wanted to avoid. I wanted the album to have a real life to it; it needed to be much more than just a bloke in a bedroom on a laptop making tracks.”
