Munich’s master of deep and melodic techno, Julian Wassermann, has revealed the official music video for his latest single ‘Guard’ – via Warner Music Germany.
Developed and shot in an abandoned factory in Hamberg by video production company Virus, known for some of the biggest ad campaigns to date, the intimate video tells the story of a single father trying to make his own interests palatable to his son and how a child adapts to finding his own role in life.
“He doesn’t realize that his son doesn’t share his passion. Already at the beginning it becomes obvious that the son only pretends to be enthusiastic about boxing out of consideration for his father. But his real passion is dancing.”
‘Guard’ sees Wassermann move into new territory to his previous productions. “When I recorded the first parts and initial chords, I knew this had the potential to turn into something very special.” he says “It felt like I had to work on a different beat structure to what I typically do in my other productions. I ended up sending my first idea to Yates, and he was quick to respond with his first vocal recordings. His idea really captured the mood of my instrumental and gave it a whole new meaning”.
Julian Wassermann has become renowned for his showstopping DJ sets and epic productions. Over the last year, he’s been a recurring feature on the bill at clubs and festivals across Germany, as well as the rest of Europe and the UK. His previous releases have seen support from BBC Radio 1 as well as Solomun, Laurent Garnier and Pete Tong amongst others.
After releasing on celebrated labels including Stil vor Talent, Senso Sounds and Einmusika, ‘Guard x Vitamin’ is the follow up to last year’s single ‘Painfully’, and sees the artist release his third track via a major label. There are more releases planned with Warner Music Germany throughout 2019.
