Premiere: weakling's menacing new track, Elephant, is a serious rumble in the jungle

And it comes with a wonderfully tripped out video to match.

Aussie producer weakling makes a triumphant tune with a slamming new tech-house banger in Elephant, a track that also comes with a self-animated/directed video clip that employs the art of Joe Baker. Setting himself a goal of using sounds from nature, Elephant rumbles along in a menacing fashion, and the incredible visuals complete what is a wholly and perfectly realised vision for the young producer.

"The idea of using samples of Elephants came to me after visiting Beijing Zoo on holiday. There was a small enclosure for a single Elephant and he was screaming in distress - his screams were pretty horrific actually. I wanted to sample these sounds because they were more aggressive than any Elephant sound I'd ever heard, and while this has come from something so cruel, I’m able to tell the world of this small Elephant’s turmoil at the hands of man."

Climb on board and strap yourself in below before its September 29 release on Spotify/iTunes.
