Montréal's Beat Market are well-known in Canada for their multimedia art that spans electronic music, storytelling and dystopian sci-fi videos.

Today we are premiering the video for "Aviator 2000", a track from Beat Market's 2012 album Red Magic, for which they are currently retooling a new version to more accurately represent their live performance style. As the group says, the story line of "Aviator 2000" is about being "lost in space for a while. We ended up on this new planet, unfriendly but beautiful. Then there was this unreal megapolis and these extraterrestrial lights flying everywhere around us." Trippy.
