This is a Mannekin Pis remix of the synthpunk pioneers, The Units, classic song "WARM MOVING BODIES", written by Scott Ryser in 1979, and later released in 1980 on The Units seminal album, DIGITAL STIMULATION. This remix was taken from the original 16 track master tapes of that record. Ryser also used a version of the song as the soundtrack for the 1980 "The Unit Training Film" that served as a backdrop for The Units live shows as well as being shown sans band around the SF Bay Area. The original film was recently acquired and restored by The Pacific Film Archive and has started to be shown again in small theaters throughout the country.
Here's a short version of "The Unit Training Film 1":
