2. Kaytranada, "Lite Spots"

Director: Martin C. Pariseau

A throwback to when characters like Charles the man-dog in Daft Punk's "Da Funk" and Flat Eric from Mr. Oizo's "Flat Beat" helped dance music videos break out of screensaver monotony in the late Nineties. While those characters often acted as avatars for reluctant artists, in "Lite Spots" producer Kaytranada finds a little robot friend to be his equally charming foil. Together the pair team up and travel Los Angeles, making pals and picking up new moves. "Lite Spots" proves that for today's dance artists to be stars, they don't have to be massive or mysterious, they can be funny and endearing too.
