Sporting what could well be the greatest music video since Thriller, producers Diplo and Switch's cartoon alter ego, Jamaican commando Major Lazer, came storming onto the scene this year with the debut album Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do on Downtown Records/Mad Decent. The first single released was Hold The Line; a Western-infused dancehall track that makes me yearn for sunshine and bass bins.

But if the track itself takes you away to sunnier climes, the video will surely take you back to happier times, playing like a homage to that golden age of kids cartoon merchandising. Indeed, anybody who regularly tuned in way back in the day to watch He-Man hold aloft his mighty sword of a morning will doubtless be similarly enamoured by this supremely spot on reworking of that classic 80's formula.
