Some of David’s videos have been talked about favourably online:
Red Bull Music Academy cited the video for Opal Tapes as the culmination of an article examining the current nostalgia around rave culture.
“Even better is the video for a track from HOLOVR’s Opal Tapes release Lunar Lake, also out this month. Here dancers are rendered in super slow-mo, their forms warped and corroded through extreme processing. At these speeds their expressions seem rapt, as if deep in thought, but oddly desolate too – a neat representation of rave as a religious experience, but one with a dark side.”
His video for XXXY’s I Know This Can’t Be Love was XLR8R’s 7th most popular video of 2012, in terms of viewers who watched through their site.
