Why do we like this?

This song's title says it all.  EDM is all the rage and rap died around Jay-Z's second coming -- sometimes you just need to give your ears a rest and "listen to soul, listen to blues."

But if you can't give up those beats cold turkey, this song is your nicotine patch.  It starts off with a slow pulsing beat and frontman Ben Woolner's crooning falsetto before breaking down into a glitched-out, hard-hitting, electro funk ballad.  It's as if Derek Smith (Pretty Lights) and Mariam (Amadou & Mariam) started a side project after a weekend of digging through old records.

This other-worldly jam comes courtesy of SAFIA, made up of Ben Woolner, Michael Bell, and Harry Sayers. Hailing from Canberra, Australia,  this indie electro-pop trio is set to release a remix package next month for their latest single "Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues." This first remix shows fans and other producers how to expertly blend soulful vocals with a much needed dance element.  Download it for free now and get excited for the weekend!
