When she’s not out playing neck-snapping sets, Radio 1’s Monki is championing new electronic talent from the depths of the underground on her own Zoo digi label. The latest in a series of stellar releases, following Zulu, Baxta and Kalyde, arrives as a two-tracker from Bristol’s own Applebottom, who’s become well known in dance circles for his bouncy brand of house.

The cut throws a chopped up vocal over a deep, zig-zagging synth line with a side serving of sharp hats, providing a solid workout and another top addition to the Zoo gang.
