I would be lying if I said I didn’t love the populist direction Julio Bashmore has taken his sound over the past 12 months. Not every release has to further the critical conversation and Bashmore has pretty clearly opted for straight-up fun times over any sort of challenging project. For his latest trick, the Bristolian has linked up with Hyetal to once again form Velour, the neonic duo that debuted on Night Slugs back in 2010. The Prince is strong in “Speedway” and while not as initially intruiging as say “Booty Slammer”, the song is certainly a grower and has a way of weaseling its way into your ear canal. Fuck NASCAR tho. Stream below.
