French swing group, Caravan Palace, shared a PG-13ish cartoon video for their track “Wonderland,” which sounds like the safety track you’ll play if you were to DJ a party for flappers and clubbers. Let’s dance or watch cartoon:

The echoing vocals spiraling around the fragmented riffs create a euphonious intersection between artificial and unprocessed instruments that ballasts both the jazz and synth sides. In “Wonderland” both genres don’t sound fused, but harmoniously stacked together where you feel part of the interplay between swing’s sass and electro flow. Caravan Palace debuted their first self-titled album back in October 2008, which peaked in the top charts of Switzerland, Belgium, and France. They are on tour now:
