Track of the Day: 'Illusion'

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

A reader calls this new track from Beat Connection a “good song, but especially good with the video.” More from Stereogum:

The song is a vibrant electro-pop offering from their upcoming record Product 3. Set in the abandoned underbelly of urban New York, the video features the incredible dancing of Sean Douglas — known as Brixx — amidst backdrops of empty parking lots, barren streets, underground tunnels, and faraway skylines. Brixx’s fluid choreography brings life and color to the derelict scenery, his smooth moves paired brilliantly alongside Beat Connection’s catchy, electro-pop sound.
