As electronic music continues to grow in popularity, it becomes more difficult for newer artists to truly differentiate themselves in what is now a fairly saturated market. However, one of the more impressive acts to emerge has been Parisian label Record Record, home to the legendary Filet Mignon compilations and brainchild of Point Point, the quartet of French DJs and producers who's works have been garnered a ton of attention from major American acts, such as San Holo, Droeloe, and the others. Now, DEVOTED, a member of Point Point and the owner/founder of Record Record has a stunning new single called "Santa Fe" that just dropped on the label, and it is definitely worth a listen.

One listen to the track, and the Point Point influences are immediately recognizable. The song is markedly punctuated by poignant sounds, with Billionaire’s vocals leading the track along a winding progression almost like a narrative. The song, like much of Point Point's catalog, defies all genres but has an unmistakable pristine quality that invokes a sense of finding comfort it's minimal progression.
