Even if you're used to "Ritual Union" as the lead track from Little Dragon's third album, don't neglect this bewitching single, released shortly before the LP. The song, if you don't know it, is Motown by way of The XX with extra Moogs, dubbed-out pop with a neon outline and a classic shape. Neo-disco upstart Tensnake defies expectations with a remix that sounds like low-budget dubstep, while Magnetic Man protects the Casiotone home front. But it's Maya Jane Coles' remix you need to hear: Slouchy and insouciant, it's a new role for the rising deep-house star, proving her versatility yet again.
