It's Friday and I'm happy we've got a few upbeat tracks to kickstart your day with.

Simon Delacroix, who is widely recognized by his stage name The Toxic Avenger or Toxic Avenger, is a prominent French electronic music composer and DJ. In case you're wondering, his stage name is inspired by the cult classic horror-comedy film of the same name, The Toxic Avenger (1985).

Back in 2022, Simon releases his highly anticipated LP Yes Future, and today's spotlight - "Mine" is part of the album's extended version which dropped today. The new release features 8 new tracks which aren't part of the original record.

"Mine" draws its inspiration from the energetic UK house scene, with notable influences from the currently hyped Fred Again... The track is a balanced blend of traditional Chicago house, with its signature style of drum programming and 4/4 beats, and high-energy drops that are characteristic of the modern house scene. I absolutely love how The Toxic Avenger seamlessly blends the classic and contemporary elements of house music, resulting in a track that is both timeless and modern.
