2012 was a winning year for electro and experimental bands – and we saw them come from all over the world. The big winners this year being Grimes, Purity ring, Crystal Castles, the xx, Beach House and our homegrown Flume (who has just recently inked deals in Europe and the US).

We’ve been waiting patiently for newness from Santigold and here’s our first taste off the new record!

The track is getting a mixed reaction online but we’re just glad she’s back and can’t wait to hear more.
