watch
Hazy, meditative new video self-directed by Mauro Remiddi

The new video for "Drifting In and Out" from Mauro Remiddi -- aka Italian electro-pop maestro Porcelain Raft -- goes heavy with the smoke machine, harkening late nights at the club when your favorite song comes on. A bit of found footage and translucent dissolves of the singer round out the visuals. Honestly, the track itself is buzzy and dissonant enough on its own, so the hazy dry ice effects......read more
