Electronic music producer and DJ Wolfgang Gartner has transformed into a cartoon version of himself for the music video of his latest single, “Redline”. Created by New Media DNA, with director Eric Damier and lead animator Jose Cubero. The video is like watching a short animated film that has a modernistic/spacey theme, but features Wolfgang’s cartoon version doing what he does best—blowing it up for a massive crowd. Watch it below.
“Redline” Radio Edit is now available on iTunes here.
