What a goodie from Ninja Tune! It's been a while since both Actress and Mount Kimbie released new stuff, but they come back strong.

"AZD SURF" has a very distinct futuristic 8-bit tone to it. While initially, the track seems fairly minimalistic, the distortion of the sound and strong acid house influence creates a very layered soundscape, which I personally got lost in (in the best sense of the word). And I can really tell that Mount Kimbie had something to do with the track, I feel like it has all the signature distortions from their electronica. I hope that this signals a proper comeback by both Actress and Mount Kimbie. It's been too long!
