British songbird Eliza Doolittle’s stock took a boost when she collaborated with Disclosure on “You & Me,” and now she’s stepped back in time, collaborating with the legendary UK garage producer Wookie, who helped shape the genre that Disclosure are now mining so successfully for their hits. “The Hype” is a smooth, sexy, instantly catchy throwback jam, with buoyantly diva-like vocals from Doolittle and the sort of swung garage beat that just will never get old. Real windows down cruising music. Listen below, and shout-out to Noory in the Shoutbox with the tip-off.
