François X “A Scream into the Future” Music Video by Anne Raffin and Les Monstres

Best known for her animated feature background work, Paris-based artist Anne Raffin leaps into the director’s chair with this dystopian vision for French DJ and musician François X with Les Monstres studio handling production.

From the team at Les Monstres in Paris: “This musical piece was crafted and composed by François X during a moody evening in March 2020, a few days after the pandemic revealed its eager face.

“Popularly known for his 4/4 instrumental tracks, this track is not that far from what people are expecting from him, as the inspiration draws from the irresistible fascination and emotional intensity of what nightlife has to offer: mild euphoria, social freedom, and pensive melancholy; held together by a cinematic and blurry atmosphere.

“The track led to a creative collaboration with friend Anne Raffin who wrote and directed the video clip: A dystopian story where the human race’s heroic struggle for social freedom remains inevitably the key element for its ultimate survival.”
