Producers Julio Bashmore and Hyetal have been casually making music together for a couple of years now under the name Velour. Their latest – ‘Speedways’ – is well worth a listen.
A funky 80s beat that recalls Donna Allen’s ‘Serious’ kicks things off before moody, tropical synths and a triumphant vocal sample bring it into 2013. The music video is old footage of NASCAR racing cut together. Look out for the guy scarfing a chicken drumstick.
