George Chua’s ‘Neo-Punggol’ music video is a disorienting experience

Next month, George Chua will release Smokescreen, a modular synth excursion into the impenetrable. As a sneak peek of the album, which is set for release on September 16th, Ujikaji Records has unveiled the music video for ‘Neo-Punggol’.

Directed by new media artist Yeyoon Avis Ann, the video features fragments of Street Fighter gameplay, interspersed over archival footage, glossy corporate 3D renderings, and on-ground glimpses into the apocalypse.

It’s a disorienting, hyper-stylized fever dream — and with George Chua’s abstract beats, it makes for a heady combo.

George Chua has been active since the 1990s, a notable figure in the ever-mutating experimental underground of Singapore.

With independent music label Ujikaji Records at the helm, you can expect the physical release to be something special. On a limited run of 200, the album will be pressed on black vinyl. Record sleeves will feature a deluxe spot UV cover to complement its stark artwork.
