This song is perfection. I’ve had it on constant repeat, and now the video has been released to make this Valentine’s Day almost bearable WHAAAAAT? A lovely gift from Young Turks, who are releasing the single today. Buy it on 7″ heart shaped vinyl here.
Jessie and Sampha have also put together this Valentine’s mix for The Fader, featuring tracks from Bill Withers, Royksopp, Actress and N.E.R.D. These two have MADE my February 14th!! Download the mixtape below.

D/R/U/G/S are a Manchester/London based electronic group. Their songs could be placed in the dance genre, but they lean towards trippy and psychedelic rather than heavy bass and beats. The have a sound which is much more organic than any dance music you’d find in clubs, making it much more enjoyable to listen to. « Read the rest of this entry »
