When we visited Toronto electronic duo MSTRKRFT's DIY studio back in January, we were blown away by Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P's incredible collection of drum machines, vintage synths, and more. Their setup is the focal point of the video for "Party Line," the second single from their upcoming album Operator, which features vocals from influential American post-punk artist Ian Svenonius.

Save a few flashing lights, the Brooks Reynolds-directed clip is pretty sparse, but gear nerds and fans of the band will certainly appreciate the peek into their live process.
