The video features 3D GIF street photos by Josh Johnson of Estate at locations around his New York City home. Johnson shoots with a vintage Nimslo camera which takes four frames simultaneously. He scans the 35mm negatives and uses Photoshop to stack the images on top of one another to create the GIFs. The result blurs the lines between photography and video, bringing the subjects to life in a revolutionary way.
“Tendency” – the first collaboration between Estate and Liquid Pegasus– is an indie dance track full of smooth, ethereal vocals and 80s synth beats. With dance music now turning ultra-futuristic, a divide has grown between those who aim to cultivate vintage sounds for modern audiences, and those who want to create original sound unique to modern production techniques. Estate and Liquid Pegasus give it to listeners both ways.
The bands collaborated across hemispheres by exchanging digital files – and never working in the same studio. In fact, most of the time Estate’s Josh Johnson works from his New York studio, while bandmate Dan Kramer works in Minneapolis.
