Estonian producers Ajukaja and Andrevski pay homage to the endangered honey bee in their fuzzy new release for London's LEVELS record label. With vinyl already flying off the shelves and a vibe-y spin on Benji B's Radio 1 show, the track is getting attention fast despite being a slow-burner. No wonder: it's all delicious summer textures, with vocal samples and bubbling synths drizzled over a crisp 4/4 beat.

“In Estonia, 'Mesilind' means 'honey bee,'" the duo explained to The FADER over email. "Using electronics to evoke nature is something we’re really into. This particular track we made on the fly in one of our studio sessions. That buzzing sound? That comes from our dusty Crumar, an old Italian synthesizer.” Get stung via the official video above.
