le motel magugu shaolin music video of the week berlin music video awards

Yesterday, we turned our Instagram stories into a battlefield, with several incredible fighters (literally!). Turns out, Le Motel feat. Magugu – Shaolin is the video you hyped up more! So, without further ado, let’s take a look at your choice for the Music Video of the Week.

Grab your dagger, it’s time for your training! Director Nicolas Torres Correia wonderfully captured the contrast between calming nature and the violent drums of the musical piece released on XXIII label. The editing of Gert Van Berckelaer helps the energy and physical strength resonate with a feeling of inner peace as the beats go by.

Behind the camera, we have Maxime Desmet, and Laura Krsmanovic in the role of a production assistant. Xavier Dockx is responsible for color grading of this Slowclub production. The breathtaking music video takes place at Shaolin Temple Europe.
