Christmas has come early this year, electronic dance music fans. Not only has EDM DJ/producer Wolfgang Gartner released his new studio effort, Weekend in America , this week — which features Eve, Omarion, and Cam’ron and Jim Jones on a collection of already-released singles like “Ménage à Trois,” “818″ and “Forever” (featuring will.i.am) — but he’s also got a new video he’s set to release for a single that’s already a fan favorite. And MTV News has the exclusive teaser for the video.
Writer/director/special-effects star Steven Ilous — part of the special-effects design crew that brought you the game-changing graphics displayed in “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions” — helmed the new video for “Space Junk,” a clip that shows the “before, during and after” of a full Wolfgang Gartner stage experience.
The video was shot at the famed Avalon nightclub in Los Angeles in April, during Gartner’s 30-plus-date North American tour, and starts with a long time-lapse tracking shot as the stage crew moves in and begins setting up Gartner’s famed “Medusa” stage lighting setup (from the designers behind deadmau5′ “Cube” and Daft Punk’s “Pyramid”).
The teaser for the video ends just before the lights go off and “Space Junk” kicks into overdrive. To catch a glimpse of the full video, fans have to wait until Thursday at 4 a.m. when it will premiere on MTV Clubland, an hour-long video playlist on MTV dedicated to all things EDM. This Thursday’s episode will feature a video playlist curated by Gartner himself. Don’t miss it!
