Baptazia – Super Sunday Mashes of Drum & Bass With Bible Thumps

A British YouTube user named Airloaf put together a series of videos synching Drum & Bass / Jungle music with video of church services (mostly Baptists, I presume). Frenetic beats and energetic toasts matched with footage of ululating preachers and careening parishioners.

Dutch Drum & Bass crew Noisia are featured in the first installment, above. Here’s their MySpace page.

There are 3 in the Super Sunday series, plus a few more on his YouTube channel.

Here’s #2: Baptazia – Super Sunday – Skibadee / Fun & DJ Ruffstuff

And #3: Baptazia – Super Sunday – IC3 / DJ Clips & DJ Die – 3 of 3

Thanks to my music-making pal Frank Neuro for the tip!


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
