Back in May we premiered the Extended Instrumental of Rituel’s “Club Zanzibar,” a track where Christophe Monier (The Micronauts) and Thomas Regnault (Dew Town Mayor) pay homage to the same-named New Jersey house music institution that featured legendary deep sets by masters such as Tony Humphries and Kenny Carpenter on the decks.

Rituel return with a music video directed by Ruta Pu and Urte Janus of Terrible Twins, an emerging duo based in the UK who shot the video this summer in abandoned factories in their native Lithuania.

“The video tells a universal story,” they explain. “Five mysterious characters head to a secret place in the wild, to carry out a ritual. The enigmatic world in which they evolve shows the ruins of an industrial civilization where nature reclaimed its rights. The ritual takes the form of various dances, all with the same goal: enjoy, reach a state of trance, forget your ego, unite, love.”

Rituel’s Deux Remix EP is released October 25 via Micronautics.
