Created by photographer, filmmaker and DJ, Marco Dos Santos, the unnerving new music video re-edited from the iconic Christane F. film for Scratch Massive showcases their new track, 'Closer', featuring Paris' famed Chloé from the brilliant Kill The DJ label/collective – paired with haunting imagery and disorientating surroundings. We spoke to Sebastien of Scratch Massive about the story behind the new video premiere on Dazed Digital...
Marco Dos Santos' special trick is to re-edit old footage from everywhere, movies, commercials and to re-write a story, adjusting to the spirit of the music
"We're big fans of 'Christiane F.', the feature film with music by David Bowie. While we were finishing the track 'Closer' with Chloé (Kill the DJ) for our new album 'Nuit de Rêve', we thought immediately of this cult movie in regards to the mood and the atmosphere. We decided to ask Marco Dos Santos the photographer, director and DJ – his special trick is to re-edit old footage from everywhere, movies, commercials and to re-write a story, adjusting to the spirit of the music. Marco's first video was for the band Bot'ox using footage of the movie 'The Professional' with J.P Belmondo and the famous car chase sequence. Recently, he did a video for the band 'Hypnolove' as a hilarious commercial for some holiday resort. A must-see: Hypnolove's Island presents: Holiday Reverie - Record Makers."
