Taken from the forthcoming A Tribute To Klang Club Vol.2 EP on Unclear Records, which features tracks from Move D, Fred P, and Easy to Remember—as well as Smallville-associated Christopher Rau himself—"Unclear Joint" is a pitch-perfect slab of dustily-groovy house that sounds like all your old Rick Wade records left out in the sun a little too long. Which is pretty much our favorite kind of house.

For the uninitiated, the Klang Club was an Italian clubbing institution that was tucked away in the sleepy Tuscan countryside. This is, as the name suggests, is the second 12" released to memorialize a night that said goodbye in 2013. As tributes go, this is a pretty special one. Each of the four tracks are lithe, zippy, cuts that are begging to be played out in the early hours. Move D's "Rise!" is an aquatic churner, "Lush Life" by Fred P lives up to its title, and Easy to Remember's "I Don't Know" is a disco-tinged delight.

We thought we'd let you have a listen to the Rau record right now. So that's what you can do. Listen below. Right now.

A Tribute To Klang Club Vol.2 is out on September 29th on Unclear Records.
