Disclosure – You & Me (Flume remix) (feat. Eliza Doolittle)

Sometimes simplicity for simplicity’s sake is the best policy.  Flume has stripped Disclosure’s original track of “You & Me” down to a single sample from the chorus and then slowed it down and sexed it up with lush layered strings … Continue reading

Chlöe Howl – Paper Heart / I Wish I Could Tell You / No Strings / Rumour
