When Steven Ellison–known to his fanbase as Flying Lotus–signed to Warp Records earlier this year, he made it known that he wanted to be seen as an artist capable of producing more than the leftfield hip-hop that put him on the map.

If you thought that the Illegal Art imprint was merely a stomping ground for Girl Talk's party tunes, think again. The label's latest release comes from experimental electro-pop duo Oh Astro. With releases on Mille Plateaux and performances alongside Merzbow and Sawako under their belts, these two now unroll "Snow Queen," a track that should enthrall fans of electro and ambient alike.
