David Guetta & Mr Brainwash release 'Metropolis' video
20 October 2012
Los Angeles-based Filmmaker and critically acclaimed pop artist Mr Brainwash has directed his first ever music video for GRAMMY award-winning DJ and producer David Guetta's latest club hit 'Metropolis', co-produced with rising superstar Nicky Romero. Made possible by burn - a leading energy drink from TheCoca-Cola Company - the video is a creative collision of art and music.
Inan exclusive partnership with VEVO, the video for 'Metropolis' to premiere now at http://www.youtube.com/burn. The video, inspired by David Guetta's passion for street art realised by the craziness of Mr Brainwash, is a frenzied fusion of shape and colour. Mr Brainwash creates a montage of images made up of fragments of vinyl and guitars before DJ superstar David Guetta is seen playing an explosive gig to a crowd of revellers.
David Guetta says, "After making a really cool movie Nothing But the Beat with burn last year, I wanted to take things further and create a music video for my electronic track 'Metropolis' with Nicky Romero. We wanted this video to combine street art and music and I knew of Mr Brainwash from many years ago so asked him to direct it. He had followed street artists in their undercover world, shooting them at night. You never know what you're going to get with him, so I wasn't sure what to expect. He's a crazy guy, and it's a crazy video and what we created is nothing like what we originally imagined, but I love it. It'sfantastic that the whole thing has been one big experiment to try out new ways to be creative with music and art."
MrBrainwash says, "My vision for art is all about trying new things without any limits. This is my first music video so when burn and David asked me to come onboard I knew I wanted to make it a colourful, artistic collision of both music and art." Explaining his inspiration behind the video, Brainwash continued "My creative inspiration for the video was to take old objects like records and TVs, which have beenused to play music in the past, and make them beautiful again by turning them into pieces of art. It has been an interesting project, working with David Guetta and Nicky Romero, we are all three different people with threevery different characters who think differently but burn has brought us together to help us merge our creativity and create something new that has never been done before."
