Bag Raiders' 'Nairobi / Savannah' EP is out now worldwide. Featuring the first new music from the duo in 3 years, the club-minded EP circles back to those dynamic dancefloor tracks that first put them on the map.
They've shared this raw energy with two remix producers - Zombie Disco Squad and Roland Tings - who dismantle the existing stems and really make it their own. You can grab a free download of Melbourne lab rat Roland Tings' deep sea 'Savannah' descent via XLR8R.
With love pouring in from Spin, Mixmag, Dancing Astronaut, Do Androids Dance, Less Than 3, and many more fine folk, and a forthcoming release on the horizon, 2014 is shaping up to be a good year for Bag Raiders. Stay tuned for more new music from the duo soon.

Look behind the development and inspiration of The Presets and Googeplay's inventive 'No Fun' Cube.
If you're yet to play with it, the Cube displays six full-length music videos across the hexahedron surfaces, each with individual narratives, allowing you to twist, turn and manipulate your own unique audiovisual interpretation of 'No Fun' in real time. The video was directed by Barnaby Roper (Banks, David Bowie, Kanye West) and can be viewed here.
'No Fun' is now available on iTunes worldwide.
This remix comes as part of the forthcoming club EP Nairobi / Savannah, out tomorrow (July 4) AUS, July 7 UK/EU, July 8 USA.
The Presets return with 'No Fun', a new single of pulsating, itchy dance, which comes with an incredible video - the world's first 6-sided, interactive music video, called the 'Cube'.
An experiment in storytelling from Google Play, the 'Cube' allows six full-length music videos, each with their own distinct narrative, to run on six sides of the 'Cube', allowing you to twist, turn and manipulate your own unique audiovisual experience of 'No Fun' in real time. The video was directed by Barnaby Roper (Banks, David Bowie, Kanye West) and can be viewed and embedded via the below link.
