Adult Swim has a tradition of excellent one-off specials such as Too Many Cooks — but this might be our favorite.

For Adult Swim’s latest special they’ve pitted parody versions of electronic music pioneers Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder and Wendy Carlos against each other in a winner-takes-all synth battle.

Lords Of Synth is framed as a mid-70s PBS broadcast and perfectly captures the dated atmosphere, as do their depictions of “Morgio Zoroger”, “Carla Wendos” and “Xangelix” who must put aside their differences at the Necropolis and save the world the only way they know how: synths.

Adult Swim tend to air these specials at 4AM without any advertising, but you can find the full video below.
