We started this florid set-up last summer with the “Full Spectrum” video, filmed on Super 8 film on location in Asbury Park, NJ, funded exclusively by Kickstarter with a gaudy appearance from Has-Lo.This summer, we grabbed Open Mike Eagle while he was on tour in Philly with Random aka MegaRan, threw him in a South Philly backyard where he discovered Yuengling for the first time, and let the chromatic camera roll.
Thus you have the video for “Full Spectrum 2″ featuring Has-Lo & Open Mike Eagle, directed by Curly Castro, Pat Murray, and Dewey Decibel (who drew the title card above and housed the filming in his personal painting workshop). Passion of the Weiss declared it “one of the most joyous clips any of these three have released.”
We’ve wrapped up this kaleidoscopic saga with the “Full Spectrum EP”, an easy how-to guide for this tinted rendezvous. Compiling five versions of “Full Spectrum” and the sequel with production from Man Mantis (who just got off tour with Sole), L’Orange of Old Soul fame, and Dr. Quandary (who kept his hand busy with the beats and the artwork above).
Throw in Has-Lo & Open Mike Eagle for the Wrecking Crew vs. Hellfyre Club rap aspect and you’ve got yourself a pretty snappy 5 song situation. You can download it for free at Bandcamp this week only, and then it moves up to the big leagues at iTunes.
