Bastille produce bangin'-ass house music. They also look infinitely better in skinny ties and suspenders than you ever will, and while carrying a pooch to boot.
We've been fans of them for some time now, as well as of their incredible EDM blog, Apes With Barrels. I can safely say that I got into electronic music mainly because of their gargantuan archives, which you should probably go raid right now. Seriously, leave this page and go do that.
Nah, but in all seriousness, they've been dozing a bit on the whole blogging thing recently. But not without good reason: they've been playing mad shows in the L.A. club scene (including one last night, I believe), as well as releasing a few new jams.
Who needs to wait for an official release? Clubs want this track now, and Bastille have done them an impeccable favor with a tasty edit of this surely-already-baller disco house track. VOTE FOR IT ON HYPEM (it's currently #12)!! [download...right-click/save-as]

An old favorite of mine. I can't get over the bass they use in this track, shit's gnarly as HELL. Electro house.
