This new, official video by the party mavericks Magic Machines begs the question, “What if we just used the cartoons you already know?” Never has the future looked so much like a trip down memory lane.

This is pure growling-synth Angeleno DIY electronic dance music, with no words or guitars to get in the way (though the press release says they sample “Led Zeplin,” I heard no such thing by any name). It’s an exciting, four-on-the-floor sound that reminds me of why as a Ramones/Misfits/Black Flag fanatic teen in the early 90s, I couldn’t help but turn my ear to the sounds of Alpha Team and Acen and wonder if I needed a glow stick—I almost expect to hear a “drop the bass” or “y’all ready for this!” right before each drop-out/drop-in.
