Armand Van Helden is back with a killer new single 'NYC Beat'. Out now on Southern Fried, and taken from his retro album 'Ghettoblaster', it's an idiosyncratic excursion into punk disco, with a vocal refrain more addictive than crack, and a bassline designed to cave your ribcage. That's a good thing!
