David Knight - 11th Oct 2013

Their first video for Gesaffelstein is multi-nominated for awards at UK Music Video Awards 2013. And here's Fleur & Manu's follow-up, for the head-banging DJ/producer's Hate Or Glory, which expands on the enigmatic gold glove motif of Pursuit with an allegory on the corrupting effect of power and riches. 

We're down in the 'hood to witness a young gangster's brutal rise to dominance – and then his uniquely extravagant method of demonstrating his accumulation of wealth. Like a sort of King Midas in reverse, he gold-plates himself. Now that's a bold statement, and frankly, you're asking for trouble...
