The video is his audio-visual edit of Electric Mantis’ “Flips and Flops, Drips and Drops”, melding numerous samples inspired by Maurice Sendak’s seminal children’s book ‘Where The Wild Things Are’. The full mixtape sees Ego melding hundreds of audio and vidual samples with pop culture references in his signature psychedelic style, raising the bar even higher for what to expect from the mastermind.
Ego’s live sets have taken him from nightclubs to art galleries to main stage slots at Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass and Field Day; from around Australia to across the world. In high demand off stage as well, Ego has produced film clips for the likes of Beni and LDRU, productions for Red Bull, Fuzzy and Modular, and official video remixes for The Presets and Lana Del Rey and Clubfeet. In 2013 heteamed with Touch Sensitive to create the world’s first instagram-sourced, user-generated song and music video. In 2012 he teamed with Nice to create the viral hit Hottest 100 mashup, compiling all songs from the year’s JJJ Hottest 100 poll into a 6 minute song and video.
