Attention All Science and/or Beat Heads: Magic Nanna's "Malachite" Music Video Has Dropped

Hey you- are you a sciencefreak? Do you think that space shit is rad, and the more explodey and whacked out it is (say, the more space-tentacles there are involved), the radder it is? Are you into geometry and angles and orbs and all that perfectly impossible math shit? Does the idea of a rocket-packed four-legged robot, zooming constellations and funky angles over a mind-flipping twinkled-out beat get your futuretech boner a’rarin’ to go?

Well maybe you should watch Austin producer Magic Nanna’s sexy-ass techporn futurebeat science freakout of a music video for his track “Malachite.” This is utterly on-point, heady stuff from a highly talented member of Austin’s world-class beatmusic cadre, showing Magic Nanna’s got his brains in weird, deep and far-out places and we’re all lucky the man’s got the musical chops to relate that shit to us through his beats. This could well be your new go-to get high and spaceout track, so get to it below.

Magic Nanna and Spanking with Glitter (and Beats)

Magic Nanna sounds like a character out of The Mighty Boosh, but is in fact an Austin beat music project by musician Joshua Shafer. This is some of the more playful beat stuff coming out of ATX right now, and it seems like Magic Nanna is more 'bout the bright sounds and funky electronic fun than many of his darker and more moody contemporaries in the scene. I get visions of technofairies dancing about in an LED-strewn forest when I hear Magic Nanna tracks like the excessively well-named "glitter spank" below. Given that one of Shafer's other projects is called Wizrds Only and the Magic Nanna Facebook calls his music "electronic voodoooooo," I also get the feeling that the man wouldn't find my enchantment-tinged description too surprising to hear. That being said, the playful electronic whines and bloops and samples in these tracks are fully rooted in hip-hop production, especially in the drums, of which Magic Nanna has an exceedingly diverse pallette he plays with. Joshua is a figure associated with many of the other major beat-scene players in Austin, like Exploded Drawing and Sole Glow Collective, and you can find not only the track below, but also a pretty impressively lengthy database of other Magic Nanna tracks and links to Joshua's other projects (and that of his talented friends) at his Soundcloud, where he posts often.
