Blood Diamonds - "Phone Sex" (Feat. Grimes)

Blood Diamonds — AKA Vancouver’s Mike Tucker — will put out a 12” this summer, and today yields that release’s vivid lead cut, the tropical electro-dance groove “Phone Sex.” It features vocals from friend/collaborator Grimes, and it totally works as a summer anthem, what with it’s warm, synthetic steel drum-led rhythm and florid textures. Stream it below.
