Does Ela Minus ever stop? The Colombian electronic producer just followed up her recent Mexican tour with a few U.S. dates opening for Roosevelt, and now she’s in Tennessee for the fourth edition of Red Bull Music Academy’s Bass Camp, held at Bonnaroo Festival. There, she’s not only working on music with fellow producers and catching talks with big names from the music industry, but she’s also set to perform a live set at the RBMA takeover of the festival’s Silent Disco stage this Saturday.

While this may sound tiring to some, Ela still had time to release a little piece of visual candy. She just dropped a new music video for the third track on her Adapt EP, the bouncy tiny-dance party “Ceremony.” For the visuals, producers Branko Jakominich and Laris Kreslins unearthed and repurposed BLOK, an experimental short film made by Polish director Hieronim Neumann in 1982. The voyeuristic images heighten the song’s lyrics, showcasing the secret lives of one building’s residents. The clip’s clever animation makes the mundane seem magical, even if it’s just an everyday portrait of what happens behind closed doors.
