Olaf Hund's new single, 'Rock 'n' Beat', is taken from his upcoming EP, released October 3rd 2011. Called 'Music Is Dead', it is the first EP of a planned series entitled 'Music Is Dead', which will be half-album-EPs and videos that will be released periodically throughout 2011 and 2012. The highly anticipated EP will also include Olaf's debut single, 'I Wanna Be Your Ice-Cream'.
The video, directed by Fabien Oliva, sees Olaf Hund as a zombie being chased through town by a pretty blonde holding a syringe and a man in charge of a local polling station. The silly storyline and the dizzying camera angles fit perfectly with the electronic song.
Olaf first rose to fame in 1999 as an electric musician at the start of the French Touch movement. He then set up his own label called 'Musiques Hybrides', which helped launch the careers of DJ Wizz, Black Landlord and Alexis HK. Olaf now calls himself a 'post electronic artist.'
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
