iO Sounds "Tough Luck (iO Sounds Refix)"*Infinite Machine*

While we haven't previously mused over London producer Rob Burn (a.k.a. iO Sounds), his second take on "Tough Luck" perked our interest. As it does on the original, a militant beat dominates the proceedings here, supported by stuttering keyboard jabs and wailing female vocal samples. The tune's energy only grows stronger from there, and its bassy undercurrent gives the track a late-night dancefloor groove. Montreal-based label Infinite Machine first presented "Tough Luck" as a single with a remix from Cloaka last month, and will be re-releasing the track as part of iO Sounds' forthcoming self-titled 12" (artwork above) on April 1.
