Quasimoto – “Catchin’ The Vibe” | Music Video


Madlib‘s animated rapping alter-ego Quasimoto has just released the visuals for the single, “Catchin’ The Vibe”, from his latest album Yessir Whatever.

Having been denied filming permits in Madlib’s home town in Los Angeles, the directors, Tuomas Vauhkonen & Jeremias Nieminen, chose to film instead in Finland and Romania. Missing Quasimoto’s signature high-pitched rapping voice and animated antics, the video takes grainy, lo-fi footage of a shady, woolen character who roams the streets peddling hip-hop vinyl. In true Quasimoto fashion, the video is funny, weird and perfectly mirrors the bouncing groove of the track with its shaky footage. Take a look at the video below and watch out for a cameo from the man Madlib himself:
