When Minneapolis production vandals Elite Gymnastics remixed Korallreven’s ethereal Julianna Barwick collab “Sa Sa Samoa,” they transformed it into a jagged, hyperactive, Whitney Houston-sampling late-’80s hardcore rave banger. And the track’s new video is a giddy, gaudy pile-up of rave-style imagery: Ancient footage of people going nuts dancing, pink CGI pills flying everywhere, skeletons swordfighting, the word “ecstasy” flashing onscreen over and over. I think they’re trying to tell us something. Watch the video and download the remix below.

The remix is on Korallreven’s “Sa Sa Samoa” 12″, out now on Acéphale.
