In the spring of 2017, MAMMOTH VR successfully applied for the Google JUMP program. MAMMOTH VR was one of a handful of Virtual Reality content creators and filmmakers around the world that received exclusive access to Google’s GoPro Odyssey 360 camera rig, including 16 Hero4 camera modules – to create skratcher VR!
Venturing into a musical piece for the first time, MAMMOTH VR collaborated with Calgary-based spatialized sound specialists Redemption Audio, and the global turntablist organization skratcher, to create a 360 DJ battle-inspired Virtual Reality music video. Located in a moody cross-fit gym, four world class turntablists surround the Odyssey rig and exchange a flurry of electric solos and collaborations for a one of a kind 360 audio experience. Enhancing the musical artistry, MAMMOTH VR layered the 360 video with a series of stunning visual effects and graphics. It all came together to create a powerful and exhilarating Virtual Reality music video inspired by and featuring the unequaled art form of turntablism.
