UK production duo Bondax spent 2012 releasing a slew of impressive singles, and they kicked off 2013 with another new one, "Gold," a charming cut balancing future garage, deep house, and hip hop with guest lead vocals from Joe Janiak. Now director Sam Pilling has given the track an all-too-appropriate video treatment in a gold-covered clip which you can watch below. Also below is the video for their 2012 single, "Baby I Got That," a version of that single's b-side, "It's You," with Kilo Kish on vocals, and a Moon Boots remix of "Gold."
Bondax came to North America late last year, when they played Glasslands with Star Slinger, and they've just announced that they're returning for a tour in March which includes SXSW and hits NYC on March 18 at Santos Party House with Kidnap Kid and Rudimental (DJ). TIckets for that show are on sale now.

Scottish producer Rustie released his great debut LP, Glass Swords, last year via Warp. Rustie, like Warp labelmate Hudson Mohawke, is making some of the dancier music of the UK bass scene with tracks like "Hover Traps" that pull equally from dubstep and '90s dance music. Stream some tracks from the album, and Rustie's most recent output, an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, below.
Rustie has a few North American dates this month including a Shortcuts party at Santos Party House on May 15 (tomorrow) with SpaceGhostPurrp, Mess Kid and Kilo Kish. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now. The flier for this show is below.
