JOIN THE COOLCATS MVMT. So-Me is the art director for Ed Banger Records. His job description includes touring with his muse Busy P, living with Justice, directing music videos, fashioning t-shirts and album art, designing Coca-Cola bottles, contributing to art exhibits, and just being a Cool Cat.

Who are the Cool Cats?

Pedro: This is the thing, anyone is a Cool Cat. Me and So-Me are the tag team behind this new mob, but we share lots of interest with a bunch of people from all around the world. So you’re welcome to join the MVMT!

Michael: Like the AristoCats said, “Everybody wants to be a cat, because a cat’s the only cat who knows where its at!”

I hear that eating Whiskas and drinking milk is also a good beginning.

I love SoMe's style.
At first it took some getting used to (back in like 06/7 when I first came across it) but it's so loose and playful. It's wide-eyed and ernest and ironic all at once.

Particularly I love how the chunky strokes feel like greasy finger paint on glass, at least to my eye.

Sadly I doubt SoMe is going to weather the Ed Banger backlash all that well since the two are inextricably linked. That's kind of a shame.

Oh BTW, this is a great post even tho I dont forsee it getting much play here. :(

Tho I bet someone will be along sooner or later to bitch about the music because it's not Gwar/TMBG/Zappa/Sakamoto/UkeleleMusicoftheUkraine.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm losing my edge to the kids from France and from London, to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent.

And they're actually really, really nice.

If the DVNO video doesn't make you smile than you are surely dead.

So Me's artwork was actually the reason I got into Ed Banger, who are now one of my favorite labels producing music today.
Good on 'ya for this.

I wish Uffie would put out an album already.

Other Videos Directed by So-Me:

I Am Somebody by DJ Mehdi featuring Chromeo (keep an eye out for a cameo by Busy P)

We Are Your Friends by Justice vs. Simian Mobile Disco (I think this video/song is what got me into Ed Banger; I stay for my huge crush on So-Me)

Also, he directed the Justice tour documentary A Cross The Universe.
