I’m super excited to share the official music video for SRVD’s banging new track BLACK ON BLACK with you. I met Patrick Mason a few years ago in Berlin, we immediately became friends, and soon after I opened the runway for his fashion show BODYDISMORPHIA in the concrete halls of Berghain. When he called me last month to ask if I’m in town and if I spontaneously wanna collaborate on this project I said yes straight away. Of course the concept for the video was already pretty much done, but I ended up doing a bit of shadow dancing for SRVD in Berlin’s Fernwerk anyway. Here’s the gorgeous result, SRVD’s five-minute future-Techno-Gothic film directed by Sergei Rostropovich, I hope you’ll enjoy it:


More about the release:

Multifaceted artist Patrick Mason and Rekids boss Matt Edwards return with their next release as SRVD, entitled BLACK ON BLACK.

Since teaming up two years ago, Matt Edwards (Radio Slave) and Patrick Mason have continued to blur the lines between pounding techno and live avant-garde performance under their SRVD alias. Following performances in Barcelona, Melbourne, Berlin London and Tokyo, and with support from the likes of Sven Väth, Rodhad, Chris Liebing, Laurent Garnier and many more. The formidable duo now return to their home imprint, Rekids, with two tracks both recorded in Bordeaux in 2019, using only analogue gear, before being arranged and mixed in Berlin.

BLACK ON BLACK opens with thundering percussion, rising synths, rattling cymbals and alluring vocals from Patrick which elevates the energy and leads you into delightful darkness. On the flip, USB pulses with a Roland SH 101 bassline and deep kicks while Patrick’s haunting vocal-work causes an unsettling rhythm that propels you into a warehouse space.

Out now on Rekids.
