Teaming up with close collaborator Hige Driver, French trailblazer Naeleck unveiled his single “Final Boss” last year, an infectious and fun 8-bit-inspired electro anthem, that became an instant favorite amongst gamers. Now, the talented DJ and producer is breathing new life into the track with a visually-stunning music video, paired with a remix from none other than UK bass music pioneers Modestep.
Created by Australian animator Sam Green, the animated music video for “Final Boss” finds a cartoon version of Naeleck trying to escape hell after dying, as he battles various demons in the shape of characters from some of the most popular games and anime series. It’s a lighthearted and impressive addition to Naeleck’s visual universe, while Modestep’s remix, on the other hand, couldn’t be a better look for the producer. Currently consisting of Josh Friend and Pat Lundy, Modestep are masters of their sound, and deliver a more than impressive redo, infusing “Final Boss” with gritty bass and jaw-dropping sound design.
