Well-rounded projects are a cause for celebration. In this case, the motivation is the 150th release on techno imprint Poker Flat, which comes courtesy of label boss Steve Bug. The "Pelican Glide EP features three tracks, including the melodic minimal tech house track "Till It's Gone," which comes with a video put together by Zeitguised, the same agency that brought us Mouse On Mars's epilepsy-triggering video for "Cream Theme."

This new clip looks like a daydream or a doodle—it's all isometric shapes and optical illusions. According to Zeitguised, the rules of this mud-colored world are "based on an autistic interpretation of mathematics," and the result is a video full of copper slinkies, deflated silicone socks,  and black blobs that dance together in a blasé sort of way.
