Redesigning album covers is common practice within the digital art community but Philadelphia electronic artist and producer, Moon Bounce, a.k.a. Corey Regensburg, stands out amongst the horde. In a clever music video directed by Peter English, Regensburg recreates some of music’s most outrageous album covers while mouthing the lyrics to his infectious new single, "Drugs". In the beginning of the video, Regensburg stumbles upon a surreal music shop filled with classic vinyl records that have been remodeled with his face and body. As he steps inside to investigate, Regensburg gets sucked down a satirical rabbit hole of music history.

The video’s animator and art director, Raymo Ventura, inserts Regensburg’s character into a series of staged photoshoots for iconic album artworks like Grace Jones’s Do or Die and Prince’s Lovesexy. Much like the music, the visuals for this synth heavy pop tune are both nostalgic and innovative. Regensburg says the inspiration for his quirky yet soulful electronic sound stems from Chris Clarke and bands like The Blood Brother and M83. "Drugs" is the latest single off Regensburg’s first full length album release entitled Clean House, set to release on his own label Grind Select on March 10th. Check out some more stills from the video below:

Keep it locked on the Grind Select Bandcamp for updates on the coming release and be sure to check out Moon Bounce on SoundCloud.
