Vesuvius Bunks is the dark new video clip from the EP of DJ/producer, Franky B (a.k.a Cryptic Monkey), written and directed by abstract:groove. (abstractgroove.com)

Slick futuristic forms and organic structures seem to overwhelm ancient degraded architecture and the possessed people within them. A pounding sequence of aged faces and places, crazed characters, and scenes layered with surreal symbolisms amplify the driving heavy Dub-techno. An unnerving, strange land and soundscape emerges.

A tense clash of the old and new persists throughout, with futuristic bass rhythms accompanied by the legendary saxophonist, James Senese.

Shot in Ercolano the film couples the haunting arcane beauty of the villas of the Vanvitelli together with Mount Vesuvius and the aged eccentric cast to create something totally otherwordly.

"The history of this project is inspired by the ominous dominance of Vesuvius, the world famous volcano in the Bay of Naples. For centuries, the population has lived under its shadow. The fear of its energy and foreboding presence is indelibly imprinted in the eyes of men and women driving them to a kind of insanity" - Luigi Pane, Director.

"The pulsing bass rolls on the groove, as the futuristic magma seeps through the cavities of the earth, while the saxophone sound warms hearts to remind of an African wind…" - Franky B

The Vesuvius Bunks EP (Smiley Fingers Records) was released on October 1, 2012 along with the vinyl version distributed by Electronix Network.
