It's Fucking Beige

Steve Jobs invoice from Halted Electronics

I'm not a big fan of #brolectro but during a trip to Nashville last summer, a young music producer I was working with let me know that Hyper Crush - Rage was his most favorite track in the whole wide world, so I felt compelled to examine it closely. Naturally, the original lyrics are electroclashy and NSFW. It's the kind of thing you play at a strip club or spring break party. Of course, after a day of internalizing the composition and lyrics, my sarcastic parody Beige (a reference to 90s PC towers) happened in one sitting. A couple seasons later, looking back at this project, I see a meaningful connection that was perhaps subconsciously drawn. This piece becomes a commentary on the bro-ification of silicon valley. It also turns out that sample of the guy shouting "yeah lets fucking rage" is from a movie about a video game tester who lives with his grandma.
