Tobu vs Zara Larsson - Uncover (Tobu Bootleg)

I'm gonna let you take a guess at the birth year of this Zara Larsson whose vocals ooze over this track with such ease. 1994? 1995? WRONG MOTHERFUCKERS. She was born December 16, 1997. Meaning she's six-fucking-teen. Meaning she hadn't even been conceived when Ross and Rachel were on a break, she wasn't alive to see crazy-ass Ms. Frizzle constantly risk the lives of her students, AND she didn't even have fingernails when T̶h̶e̶ Q̶u̶e̶e̶n̶ h̶a̶d̶  ̶P̶r̶i̶n̶c̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶D̶i̶a̶n̶a̶  ̶k̶i̶l̶l̶e̶d Princess Di met her untimely fate (sry, reading abt conspiracy theories on Wikipedia is my kryptonite). But actually, i'm just complaining about her youth b/c i feel like college-sophomore tragically trapped in a post-grad body at the mo.
Now imma leave my post-grad pessimism out of the rest of this post (or try at least to...) because this song ROCKS. Tobu's (Tobu? rly? r u a teletubbie?) is spot on with his sampling choices and the track has an awesome pre-levels-Avicii feel. The build could be better, but the drop is pretty stellar and isn't too heavy on the bass. I h8 that hardcore "I WANT THE BASS TO RATTLE MY BONES SO HARD THAT I HAVE TO GO BACK TO USING MY 7TH GRADE BACK BRACE" level of bass so many shitty EDM songs possess. This song is definitely purrrrfect for that last-ditch trip to the beach before school or the white-wine-and-svedka-shot-fueled pregames of your first weekend back (srsly, i envy u).
