Street Art and Dance music collide as Mr Brainwash Directs new Metropolis video.


The new music video for club hit ‘Metropolis,’ fuelled by burn, receives worldwide premiere

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 The Coca-Cola Company – the video is a creative collision of art and music.

You can watch the video from today here : 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.

Mr Brainwash 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.”
