Pat Lok ft. Bear Mountain - Same Hearts (Ride The Universe Remix) by Holographic People

When two of Canada's most handsome yet mysterious acts, Pat Lok and Bear Mountain met at a large music festival, they discovered a shared love of dark magic and even darker fermented beverages. The result: "Same Hearts", a melancholy house jam that explores the irrelevance of vapid teenage infatuation. The past 12 months saw Pat Lok earn BBC Radio 1 support with reworks of Cashmere Cat and Justin Timberlake, write an official Todd Edwards remix, flip an AlunaGeorge bootleg co-signed by the band, help name a new Pope, discover then lose a formula for a perpetual motion machine, and save 7 kittens from a burning skyscraper - and he promised not to be lazy this year. Expect a slew of original productions in 2014, with Same Hearts leading things off. Bear Mountain, best known for their singles "Two Step" and "Congo", had a magical year of their own, completing a full U.S. tour with Bloc Party and being tapped by Hot Chip to open at Lollapalooza. Their album will see its UK release this spring on Last Gang Records. Same Hearts comes with remixes from Oxford, Shelby Grey and Ride the Universe.
