The first video from Paul Kalkbrenner’s latest album, Cloud Rider is also the first part in a trilogy directed by Björn Rühmann called FLORIAN.

We follow a day in the life of our rather naive hero, as he innocently tries to share the music in his headphones with passers-by, with increasingly disastrous consequences. A comment on our modern lives where we live cut off from those around us perhaps, or a reflection of how EDM is still ironically seen as an outsider in the American music scene, despite it’s history in the US with Chicago house and Detroit techno.

A video humorous and harrowing in equal parts, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for the next instalments in the trilogy.
