Los Angeles’ independent Dim Mak Records never seems to fail. Earlier this week, we released an exclusive playlist from the Steve Aoki-founded label’s San Francisco beat masters Viceroy and Giraffage, and today we’re continuing the electronic pop sweetness with the premiere of “Your Love” from English indie duo WITHOUT (W\). The track comes as the first track off of the brother-in-law twosome’s debut EP, Cheap Touch (mastered by noteworthy upcomer Mura Masa). Produced and manifested on the tiny island of Guernsey in the English Channel, the record tactfully combines unrelated genres and influences into one, consistent body of work, calling upon everyone from Paul Simon to R. Kelly for inspiration. “Your Love” in particular opens with serene, cloudy synths before falling into a sticky beat underneath lush, smartly textured synths and a gutsy falsetto voice. About the track, the duo tells BlackBook:
The Cheap Touch EP is inspired by the good islndbys (Island Boys) lifestyle and a love for music that still sounds a little rough around the edges. We live on a small island off the coast of France and produce DIY electronic tracks written with a jam band ethos. Tracked between surfs in our living rooms and mixed with one of our best mates Mura Masa, we just wanted to write a chill party record and not think too hard about the production process. We had fun with it and hopefully that comes across in the songs.
