FanBoy Combines Classic Dance Music and Animation in “Give Em” Video

Your dream afterlife or the biggest trip—the mysterious duo give us visuals for their new original track.

Infrared black and white film set to classic sounds of early dance music—it's the kind of place you hope to live an afterlife in, if you're into that kind of thing. Or perhaps it's the dreamlike atmosphere you hallucinate while at your local after-hours, (admit it). But while you were keeping your fingers crossed for the best trip ever, FanBoy has brought it to a reality.

The Montreal and Madrid based duo have materialized quite mysteriously—both with separate musical projects of their own and a trickle of bootleg releases together. Their inaugural release of original material is their self-titled EP FanBoy, a five track set that plays as a stanch homage to timeless dance music. Their track "Give Em" has been given the music video treatment and THUMP has your exclusive first look.


The video pieces together scenes from the motion captured, computer animated film works of Christian Volkman's 2006 film Renaissance. The track is equipped with a pogoing beat, a fleeting high-hat patter and vocals that the dance music legends of the early '90s would baptize in their sets proudly.

Watch the exclusive premiere of their music video above and grab Fanboy's EP FanBoy on the label Rare Beef due out on October 21.
