The French-born, London-based singer/producer is back, and his newest offering has a distinct New Order vibe. The drum machine, the claps, the guitars, the synths, the visceral feeling of despair despite the upbeat nature of the song; it’s got all the vital ingredients.

The track is part of a very good new compilation, bekolympics, from French label, beko disques, in celebration of – you guessed it – the Olympic games, which is out now.

You can pick up the single on the beko disques Bandcamp here
