DJ Dodger Stadium combines the talents of Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy, co-founders of the rising Los Angeles dance label Body High. We’ve heard them each individually on SPIN before — check Jerome’s “Deleted,” and Samo’s “Divine” to get a feel for them apart — but on July 8, they’ll co-release Friend of Mine under that geographically specific moniker. The label promises “10 pieces of hypnotic techno that tell the story of a wounded soul’s search for redemption and peace,” and that sounds about right. Above you can hear the just-shared song “Never Win,” via XLR8R, which laces that downtrodden sentiment with melancholic yet body-moving beats. The accompanying video gives us a dusky tour of DJ Dodger Stadium’s city, much like the previously released clip for album-opener “Love Songs.” Because the music’s great, you can watch that one below, too.
