Blind Date

If you haven't yet heard Heartbreak, I urge you to. They are an Italo band based in London who make wonderfully nostalgic electronic tunes that are equal part boogie woogie, equal part melancholic yearning. A few months back they were asked to record a Resident Advisor podcast and the results were great. The podcast itself received some negative comments from the standard RA min-tech-heads, but they are too narrow-minded to know better and I didn't see them complaining when RA was only plugging prog-house. Anyway, this was by far THE standout track from the mix. Blind Date were a German synth/funk/pop band from the late 1980's, based in M√ľnchen, and I think this is as near to perfection as dammit.

"No way! I'm not going out wit your boyfriend's brother!"
