Kristian Young paints a picture of love and rivalry in washes of neon for Flux Pavilion's Emotional.

Set in some abstract future where beautiful gangs of well-dressed dancers take their battles to the eerie tunnels under London, we're presented with a story of forbidden love with a pink and blue neon-industrial backdrop. With fluid choreography chopped and skewed with rhythmic editing, this video manages to tell a familiar story in a contemporary way and look good doing it!

KRISTIAN YOUNG:

"I spent a lot of my university days blasting Flux Pavilion before a night out, so it was amazing to get the call to shoot this one for him, a proper little nostalgia trip. We wanted to make something futuristic to fit with the unique sound that Flux Pavilion creates, whilst keeping some core themes at its heart. Two opposing gangs tackle love at first sight, a euphoric withdrawal and violent return to captivity, all carefully presented through conceptual dance choreographed by Alexandra Green.

"We shot directly under the station at Waterloo, and you could hear the rolling stock thunder by every few minutes whilst thousands of people travelled above us."
