From Chromatica to Future nostalgia to What is your pleasureIt’s been a great year for new releases from dance pop and disco. It is all the more frustrating that we can’t just go onto the dance floor to enjoy it as we would have before.
In addition to the less than ideal circumstances for enjoying dance music at home, one of the challenges the music industry has faced since the pandemic began has been to create music videos that accompany new titles in a visually interesting way while ensuring that the cast and film crews stay safe and sound socially distant.
When the French EDM duo AaRON debuted their latest single “Ultrarêve”, they came up with a rather unique solution that addressed both problems: release a self-filmed video with one of the greatest action film legends in cinema history, solo dance to the song in a number of abandoned places.
The video for ‘Ultrarêve’ shows a man getting out of a car in an empty parking lot and swinging his head to the beat of the song before the camera pans around and shows that it is none other than film star Jean-Claude Van Damme “The muscles from Brussels.”
The actor, who will turn 60 later this year, shows a number of his legendary martial arts poses as well as some interpretative dance moves at the highest father level in front of the car and later on the beach. As the video progresses, Van Damme throws away his shirt to show that his arms are jacked up just as they were when he starred in films like Blood sport, universal soldier and Kickboxer.

AaRON was reportedly initially in touch with Van Damme about another creative collaboration, but when the actor heard about her upcoming new album Anatomy of lightHe was excited about the prospect of getting involved in a way that bypasses the current limits of the entertainment industry.
“Jean-Claude came back to us to tell us how much this song meant to him,” the duo said in a statement. “He offered to shoot the video himself in Los Angeles in an unprecedented setting and asked his daughter Bianca to direct it. The ‘(ultra) dream has become (ultra) reality.'”
