New video for Munk “The Beat” (Kolombo Remix)

New Munk single “The Beat” first went up high in the Beatport House charts and now finally gets a video for the heavy Kolombo remix.

Munich’s Studio Seidel’s clip takes you directly to Toy Town, where residents include ice-skating bears, xylophone-playing hounds and an elephant on drums.
There’s also a vintage cameo from that mental cymbal-crashing chimp from Toy Story 3, whose wide-eyed, unblinking visage is slightly less terrifying when accompanied by this crisply bouncing beat and Londoner Mona Lazette’s smoothly understated vocals. Plus, with the continuing rise of the kigu, it might not be long before clubs start looking like this anyway…
