Throwing the rulebook out of the window and completely redefining the possibilities of just how far electronic artists can go with visuals, the ‘Chattahoochee’ video is a creative triumph from start to finish.
It really is a case of ‘you have to see it to believe it’. After weeks of waiting — during which time a) they soared to the top of the Beatport Top 100 chart and b) millions of fans became increasingly familiar with a certain Tyrannosaurus Rex — Belgian festival kings Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike finally unleash the incredible full length video for their Tomorrowland 2013 anthem ‘Chattahoochee’.
Artistically in line with the four-part Tomorrowland comic book series penned by Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins and inked by the team at Stellar Labs, ‘Chattahoochee’ sees our brotherly duo fully animated, transported by magical powers from their studios in Belgium and traveling through the great mysteries of time until they’re rather unceremoniously dumped in a mythical world where prehistoric dinosaurs run rampant and hordes of spear-wielding tribesmen worship a lava-spewing volcano. Armed only with the power of music, it falls to our heroes to destroy the evil forces and save the day in true Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike style.
With only weeks to go until the European mega-festival lands in Atlanta for the inaugural TomorrowWorld, the ‘Chattahoochee’ video perfectly encapsulates the spirit and vibe of what has become the most talked about electronic music event in the world, and for those attending in September, will only serve to turn the excitement up even further past fever pitch.
