27 July 2011 - Short Message
Music: 'Love in Motion' by Sebastian ft. Mayer Hawthorne
...from the album 'Total' (Ed Banger Records, May 2011). The track remembers in some notes a modern, downtempo, electro interpretation of Prince's 'Kiss'. The video shows the artwork of the album cover by Jean-Baptiste Mondino - a photo of two men kissing.
'Total' by the French electronic musician Sebastian has received already in March on Nowness (belongs to the LVMH group) an article. Earlier in February, it was announced with a X-rated teaser video which was mentioned again by Larry Fitzmaurice on Pitchfork on 26 July: the link in his article to the video's "quickly edited pieces of footage both disturbingly violent and explicitly pornographic" leads to a page where the content was deleted just on the same day. Fashionoffice has found it on another page; but you have to search for your own for the teaser video if you want to watch it.
