Meat Beat Manifesto have been perfecting their techno sound since 1987 and have been major influencers on trip-hop, as well as drum and bass along the way. MBM’s latest album, Answers Come in Dreams, dropped last week via Metropolis Records and today we present the premiere of their new video for “Waterphone”. Juxtaposing vintage film footage—among some of the earliest recorded by the first movie cameras of the turn-of-the-century—with their hyper-modern electro beats, “Waterphone” is both artsy and cerebral.
