Electric Youth’s new single came out earlier this week and if you’re a fan of synthpop, you’re gonna love “The Best Thing”. The Toronto duo are probably best known for the best track on the Drive soundtrack (“a Real Hero”, along with College). I am a huge fan of that track, but i’m really happy to see them put out new stuff and build on their previous success. For this particular track, the duo worked with Vince Clark (Depeche Mode, Erasure, Yaz) and according to their facebook page, they plan on utilizing his expertise further on their forthcoming debut. Catch Electric Youth on tour now and stay tuned for more.
I never gave Drake the listen he probably deserved, I couldn’t get used to the rapper/singer thing. But I finally gave his latest album a shot and was very impressed with his second effort, Take Care. Drake definitely avoided the sophomore slump on this one. I love the production, with tracks produced by The Weeknd and Jamie xx.

This next track features one at the top of my playlist for the last six months, many thanks 85decibels for turning me on to this one. Synths, dance beats, and a sultry voice are never a bad combination.
♪ Class Actress – Keep You (from Rapproacher)
This next track is from the Drive Soundtrack, which is one of my favorite films of the year and my favorite soundtrack by far (Check out the trailer here). This record is on par with the TRON Legacy Soundtrack last year and includes the Lovefoxx (aka Luísa Hanae Matsushita, lead singer of CSS) and Kavinsky collaboration better known as “Nightcall”.
