Boyfriend blew up with “Vodka House,” which despite the name was a moombahton staple a few years ago on Nadastrom’s Diabluma Sound imprint, earning a slot on Brodinski’s Essential Mix. The wunderkind is back with a awesomely weird house record on T&A. “Fears” sounds a bit like if Boy 8 Bit took a left turn and ended up at a rave in a Gypsy camp, or maybe an abandoned funhouse. The remixes are just as odd. Fellow Lithuanian Saveless turns up the brown acid, while DJ Ayres mellows things out in an orchestral post-UK garage fashion and style.
