The single arrives alongside an emotionally-charged rework from Detroit techno pioneer, Robert Hood, who introduces thumping, fast-tracked drums and seductive loops into Leesker’s original mix. Have an exclusive first listen below.

‘Respect’ succeeds a series of colourful singles and edits from Roland Leesker, including a ‘You Got To Dance’ edit of Groove Armada’s ‘Rescue Me’, released last February, and 2022’s ‘I Get Deep’ EP alongside Roland Clark. That same year, Roland Leesker mixed and curated the crucial ‘20 x Get Physical’ compilation, featuring tracks from Hot Since 82, BLOND:ISH, Birds Of Mind, and more.
