Check Out Kid Gloves' Fighting New Mix

Based on their music, the members of UK duo Kid Gloves don't seem like particularly violent individuals. Nevertheless, just a few weeks after quietly releasing their debut EP, Bare Knuckle, via Fool's Gold, they've unveiled a new podcast of fight-themed tunes called Lovers Not Fighters. Apparently, the Kid Gloves dudes spend their days making tunes for pop starlets like VV Brown, Ladyhawke, and Little Boots, but we honestly don't care too much about that. It's the pair's own energetic, loop-heavy disco-house that gets our hearts racing. As for the mix, Kid Gloves has managed to include Four Tet and Todd Edwards alongside Talking Heads, The Cure, and The Isley Brothers. Download the mix here; we're not sure if it's supposed to build or relieve tension, but we can't argue with the tracklist, which is posted below.
