Chad Valley "Fast Challenges"
If this MP3 post has a familiar ring to it, that's probably because you may be experiencing some XLR8R déjà vu. Last week when we announced that summer-tinged electro-pop producer Chad Valley had plans to release a new EP this June, not only did we hip you to the details of the new release but we also posted a stream of this very track from the forthcoming EP (artwork above) too. Well, now we've got "Fast Challenges" here as a download, which we think you'll agree entirely overpowers any lingering feelings of déjà vu. Furthermore, this luscious slice of warm, gooey dance-pop has us wondering what summer nights are actually like for the Oxofrd-based artist and if they usually end in the kind of carefree dance frenzy one imagines "Fast Challenges" would inspire. For now our questions will just have to go unanswered as we savor this small but intriguing bite of what's to come when Equatorial Ultravox drops June 20.
