A shot from the Chemical Brothers' music video Wide Open



Chemical Brothers

We've only ever written one story about The Chemical Brothers, but it's enough to have snuck them into our Hot List.

Few electronic artists have managed to stay as relevant and innovative with their music as the duo's Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons.

The music video for Wide Open, released in February 2016, featured a dancer that morphed into a moving 3D-printed lattice. The effect was achieved by long-time The Chemical Brothers allies Dominic Hawley and Nic Goffey, AKA Dom&Nic, and visual effects studio The Mill.

It took five months to make, but was so striking it was selected as Dezeen's music video of the week and has now been watched more than 14 million times on YouTube.
