Saw DC electronic/house/disco duo Protect-U tear up Shea Stadium a couple weeks back. Protect-U is Aaron Leitko + Mike Petillo. Petillo helps run the Future Times label, whose press email regarding the new Aurora Halal-directed video for Protect-U's "U-Uno" ravaged my inbox the other day. The song is fantastic, more of a Beautiful Swimmers vibe, dig it more than the other Protect-U track I'm familiar with, "Double Rainbow." It's a bit more concise, a bit less restrained, simply comes off as more fun
The video track can be found on the b-side of new "total mutant house/techno" Protect-U 12" single "World Music," a-side streaming below. Stream some other Soundcloud jams below and download "U-Uno" from 20 Jazz Funk Greats.
