Not sure if Manchester dudes Heavyfeet made it to aNYthing's jerk competition, where the footage for their video was shot (we didn't and are pissed about it, but at least there's a document). But the remarkable dexterity of the dancers fits the elasticity of the track, which has an almost turn-of-the-millennium UK garage-ness to it until it warps up and breaks into a really cathartic diva house crescendo. Then it gets back into the dirty synths, but these dudes sneak in tricks when you're not looking—windy little synth parts, for instance, or a tiny snippet of classic hip-hop break. It's almost like dance music nerd hide and seek, but fortunately for y'all normies, it drives smooth on the dancefloor too. Win-win. Track is off the Sawdust and Sultans EP on Plant Music, and it is coppable now!
