The MUSIC VIDEO VAULT TAKEOVER is a new exclusive FRINGE MUSIC FIX feature in which we invite our favourite artists, directors, producers, writers, bloggers, and music video enthusiasts to present five or more music videos that have most inspired or entertained them.
For this takeover we have invited music producer/engineer Jake Vicious to dig through the vault to unveil 5 of his favourite music videos.
Jake Vicious is based in DC and is part of the illustrious House Studios. He has worked with renowned artists including Kendrick Lamar, Faith Evans, Mannywellz, Wiz Kalifa, Trey Songz, George Thorogood, Jen Miller, and many more.
JV here, live (kinda) from FRINGE MUSIC FIX – it’s time for some VICIOUS VIDS!!!!!###** (BOOOOM)
Every morning I wake up to a cold glass of Kentucky Bourbon, and watch Thriller to get myself ready for the day. If you haven’t watched it yet today (why?) I recommend you do it RIGHT now. I will never make a video list without putting Thriller first. MJ is the best to ever do it. Scary, sexy, and still groovy even now.
Who doesn’t love a good puppet fight? Gladiators, redemption, glory. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!?!??!?!
Maybe I have a weird thing for puppets? (Or Dragons? – Ed.) No, but seriously this video speaks to me. I always love talking to people about what it means to them.
AAAAAAAAATTTTTTEEEEEEEENNNNNTTTTTTIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!! Bonecrusher is my drunk alter-ego. Who doesn’t want to be 300 ft tall and walk around destroying downtown? If you need a pump up song- listen to this.
This video follows a young outlaw named Senior Slime, as he fights oppressive regimes throughout the desert, freeing beautiful women as he traverses foreign landscapes. A coming of age story! Again, couldn’t make a video list without a shameless plug. I was blessed enough to work with Jen Miller, Eros, and the epic Megan St John on this shoot, and it was a BLAST. Who knew 2 days in the 166 degree desert would be so fun and good for the skin!
