Chris Stracey and Jack Glass, aka Bag Raiders, have been hard at work crafting album #2, basing themselves in LA as they labor over the follow up to 2010's self-titled debut. However, they've continued to make deeply satisfying club music in tandem, and the immediacy and excitement of two recently-recorded lethal tracks has prompted a standalone EP, breaking their release drought of almost three years.
The EP will be released via Modular on July 4 (AUS), July 7 (UK/EU), July 8th (USA), and will feature two original club tracks, Nairobi and Savannah, each paired with a remix.
We're letting Nairobi loose today.
