The Good, the Bad and the Hipster
This music video is a tip of the sombrero to spaghetti western director, Sergio Leone, recreating that famous scene in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" as Toy Selectah, Rey Pila and a mariachi go at it in a dance-off in the middle of the desert.
Toy Selectah is a Mexican DJ and major figure in the Latin American music scene, infusing cumbia and urban beats into his remixes for artists such Vampire Weekend, Devendra Banhart, just to name a few.
Rey Pila is a Mexico City indie rocker, who combines different genres such as shoegaze, funk, with psychedelic distortions and haunting, high pitched vocals, both in English and Spanish.
A taste of Rey Pila's music here.
