Looking to pass the time until the weekend? What better way than to catch up on some great new music videos – here are six of our recent faves.

First up is a comedy crime caper for Duke Dumont’s new track Won’t Look Back, directed by Tim Main, which features a gang of masked arm robbers making a getaway on pogo sticks, while being chased by cops on segways. Lovely stuff.

Director: Tim Main; Production company: Friend.

For those of you growing tired of twerking, I’m afraid the dance style shows no sign of disappearing just yet. Two of our videos this week are centred on the shaking derrière – first up is this promo for Basement Jaxx track Never Say Never, directed by Saman Kesh. Set in a Japanese factory, the film envisions a world where humans no longer dance. Their remedy? The ‘twerk-bot’. Production company: Skunk.

Our second twerk-based vid is this film from director and animator Maxime Bruneel for Diplo + Swick’s track Dat A Freak, which features a series of animated dancers getting on down. Production company: Chez Eddy. UK/US rep: Not To Scale.

A change of pace with our next promo, which is a beautiful stop motion animation created by Simon Roberts for the song Sirens by Flight Brigade.

We return to the dance in this promo, directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, which features a slightly unlikely couple busting out moves to Jungle’s track Time. The video is the latest in a series by Pearch for Jungle. Production company: Colonel Blimp.

Our last video is an intense one: a beautifully shot film by Martin de Thurah, it is created for the new Röyksopp and Robyn track Do It Again. The film, which is all black-and-white, is a dream-like piece featuring scenes of violence, political revolution, and sex, as well as Robyn throwing her arms around. Production company: The Lift.
