The Fader on Black Dave
The video for “Muthafuck! My Enemies,” directed by Jason Ano of ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag” fame, is likewise strange and energizing, Dave playing a 2013 Telly, slithering between the reckless affection and untamed angst of city kid adolescence.

HYPETRAK on Carlos Serrano “Something About the Fire”

Hypetrack on Purple Swag Jim-E Stack Bootleg
“Director Jason Ano has realigned the original “Purple Swag” visual with Jimi-E Stack’s psychedelic remix in a special ‘Director’s Cut’ edition. The visual rework compliments the unhurried pace of the track and Ano also added a number of effects including a conspicuously effective purple filter.”

While music video budgets aren’t what they used to be, it’s also never been easier for someone to make a decent-looking clip entirely on their own. With that ongoing collapse in mind, some of this year’s best videos relied on little but raw personality

Skrillex has garnered an audience the world over that includes ravers, house heads and rockers alike. In today’s laptop generation of music, Skrillex is the new “rock.”
SPIN Magazine on the 12th Planet “The End is Near” Music Video
“Now the clip has a nifty video directed by Jason Ano, and it’s a “Come to Daddy”-ish romp where 12th Planet and collaborator Flinch are the ghosts in the machine (or, in this case, an analog TV).”
Be Street on ASAP Rocky Visual Remix
Jason Ano a réalisé ce magnifique remix vidéo du Purple Swag d’A$AP Rocky. Tout en nuance avec des légers relents d’electro.
Earmilk on ASAP Rocky Visual Remix
The video has some slow-mo footage which only seems to flourish over Stack’s remix, making the director’s cut equally rip up and down visual.
Neoboto on ASAP Rocky Visual Remix
Il est impossible que vous soyez passés à côté du « Purple Swag » de A$AP Rocky, un clip marquant tant dans le fond que sur la forme qui annonçait l’arrivée du phénomène Always Strive and Prosper.
Soul Culture on ASAP Rocky Visual Remix
Ano pours a little more lean into the cup as he slows his original footage right down as the lethargic instrumental plays out in the backdrop.
HIPHOP DX on ASAP Rocky
His rise is also indicative of the new pace of the music world in the blog era. Having released his debut video, “Purple Swag,” in early July, he now has over a million views apiece for that and his follow up, “Peso.”
Pitchfork on ASAP Rocky
“Really though, I was dating this chick from Czechoslovakia– is that how you pronounce it? Her dad used to be around the house like, [sings] “Everything is purple.” Mind you, this is a rich-ass nigga with a Bentley, all that shit.”
The New York Times on ASAP Rocky
“Within a week of the “Purple Swag” video’s release, ASAP Rocky was taking meetings with major labels — a deal is rumored to be close — or in many cases, dodging them, including asking one executive to take him shopping at Barneys and then skipping the meeting. ”
SPIN Magazine on the Skrillex “Rock N Roll” Video
“It’s been a wild year for the Los Angeles electro-dubstep DJ Skrillex: He’s performed and collaborated with Korn, toured with rave-master Deadmau5, and released a handful of club-wrecking EPs, including June’sMore Monsters and Sprites. In his new clip for the buzzy, party-starting track “Rock n Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain)” — his first official video — the man born Sonny Moore documents his wild life on the road.”
MTV Hive on ASAP Rocky
“The video for his breakout record “Purple Swag” looks like a Tumblr blog come to life, artfully shot and drenched in cool kid signifiers — the word “swag” (and, quite paradoxically, the words “fuck swag”), a lip syncing blonde girl in gold fronts, mixed race young and beautiful people doing young and beautiful people things like drugs and staring off into the distance.”
Hipster Runoff on Skrillex @ Camp Bisco
“Every one loves Skrillex. He goes to a music festival and every1 wants to tell him that he is God’s gift to dubstep.”

COMPLEX Magazine on ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag”
“ASAP Rocky might have a “get throwed” anthem on his hands. Whether you’re sipping that purple lean, lighting that Grand Daddy purple, or completely sober—”Purple Swag” knocks.”
FADER Magazine on ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag”
“Uptown smoker and wave/swag/screw fusionist ASAP Rocky pays a proper homage to the greatest rap song of the last decade, “Still Tippin.” Speaking not only to a post-region rap world, but a post-race one as well, the video features a blonde chick in golds, lip syncing with an uncomfortable swagger that recalls the Pink Shirt Girl of Rebecca Black fame. As a pioneering white wearer of fronts and awkward swag possessor himself, Paul Wall would most certainly approve.”
MTV – The Electro Wars crew in Miami
“Vasquez and his production partners, Carmine Rizzo and Jason Ano, are a trio who never say no. A year after the documentary first started buzzing at the 2010 Winter Music Conference, the crew, now operating under the name One & Only Productions, scored a gig as Skrillex’s touring camera crew, covering shows all over the States, all while the trio are in full swing on production for the documentary’s sequel, “The Electro Wars: Revenge of the Synth.”"
The Village Voice on ASAP Rocky’s videos
“He reps Harlem pretty hard, but his beats are so chopped and screwed you’d think he was a student of Mike Jones. Also, he seems to be bringing back grills. (This is not a complaint.) And he’s even got a co-sign from Drake!”
Good Morning Arizona
PHOENIX – Go to any party and chances are you’ll hear Skrillex.
His real name is Sonny Moore and he looks like he’s about 17. Folks like Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas have hired him for remixes. He just loves music and his fans love him, which is no wonder why his Dubnation Tour stop at the Venue of Scottsdale was completely sold out.
Hipster Runoff on Skrillex
“To some, Skrillex is known as ‘the guy who had the Win Butler haircut b4 Win had it. But to others, he is known as the Prince of Dubstep, bringing the sounds of dubstep 2 the masses, building a tribe of fans who truly love him as a DJ, and also as a person. He is Sonny Moore, the greatest American dubstepper in the history of Civilization.”

“Offered below is basically everything ASAP Rocky has done to date. You will find individual streams of our favorite tracks, a download link to his debut EP Deep Purple, and the ridiculously awesome music video for the song “Purple Swag”. Happy listening friends, and remember——keep it weird.”
DUMMY Magazine on ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag”
“This cinematic, coiled song is easier and sadder than spending money and combines three of the best rap things ever – psychedelic/melancholic screwed beats from Houston and visceral realist New York rap – with gold lower grills and synesthesia, two of the best non-rap things. What else is great about this? The video, directed by Jason Ano is cool.”
Earmilk on ASAP Rocky
“Got some new music from the upcoming Harlem rapper with a Houston influenced called ASAP Rocky. This is a artist that has that psychedelic feel with that pretty-boy swag, will definitely be looking out for him.”
High Snobiety on ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag”
“I’m still hyped on this one. The homie ASAP Rocky has released a handful of songs and videos on the internet via Youtube, but not until “Purple Swag” aka “Everything’s Purple” has he seen such success. I pride myself on being able to read the market and pin point trends before they happen. Mark my words what you are about to watch or perhaps just finished watching is a dope song with an equally cool visual that as far as i can tell is sure to go viral.”
Earmilk on Skrillex
“Ever wonder what 8 months of touring looks like? Now you can with video that Skrillex recently released. This guy has been everywhere on this planet, traveled to every continent and played in about every major
Womp TV on Skrillex
“Just released is Skrillex’s new music video for “Rock n Roll” by NYC crew One & Only Productions and Orange County’s Cru Jones. This video is a mini documentary of Skrillex’s US Tour over the past 8 months and only a glimpse of what his life on the road is like. There are a volley of cameos from every all-star in the Electronic Dance music scene from all over the world.”
Hypetrack on Skrillex
“With a much revealing title like “Rock n Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain),” the theme of Skrillex’s latest single is loud and clear. Thus, the Los Angeles-based bass aficionado unleashes an accompanying video. Accordingly, it features lots of footage on the road and numerous cameo appearances by the likes of Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Diplo and more.”
MTV – Jason Films Deadmau5 at Ultra Music Festival
“Deadmau5′s amazing stage setup is part of why he stands apart from other acts — that as well as his excellent production value and impeccable transitions during live performances. We hit up day two of the Ultra fest to see what new tricks deadmau5 would have in store.”
