HIMANSHU & JUSTIN HANTZ PRESENT: Heems - "Desi Shoegaze Taiko" (Blade Vamp-Rave)

Bad-ass vampire/vampire slayer flicks have been a pretty solid Hollywood mainstay for the bulk of the past 50+ years; We're talkin' about shit like Dracula, Interview with a Vampire, The Lost Boys, Blade, Buffy Vampire Slayer, etc. - NOT those pussified, glistening love-stuck "vampires" from Twilight or whatever! While I was a little too young for The Coreys' Lost Boys (1987) and even Blade's late 90's reign of terror, I can vaguely remember Sarah Michelle Gellar's sheer ass-whooping hotness... I guess former-Das Racist swordsmen Heems is a champion of OG vampires, too because from what I understand, his latest music video for "Desi Shoegaze Taiko" re-purposes Stephen Norrington's opening scenes from Blade (1998).

It's basically a Wesley Snipes-less scenario with a room-full of white people gettin' downright Funky @ some sort of weirdly awesome [and bloody unsanitary] vampire rave/BLOODBATH, which appropriately dates the movie itself. Amateur rapper-producer Mike Finito somehow managed to flip Yuck's Lo-Fi/Noise-Rock jam "Rubber" for "Desi Shoegaze Taiko"'s primary, fuzzed out beat and the video was supposedly "DIRECTED BY HEEMS & JUSTIN HANTZ." Nehru Jackets and WILD WATER KINGDOM, Heems' STELLAR 2012-13 mixtapes, are now both available for download online. Coincidentally, former bandmate Kool A.D. released a video for "Moneyball" today, too; It's one of nearly 40 tracks housed on his latest post-Das Racist mixtape double album, 19-63.
