Rising techno producer Nicole Moudaber will release her debut album, Believe, on May 6th on Drumcode. It's a special occasion for sure, but Moudaber says the "icing on the cake" was getting to work with label boss Adam Beyer. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to the duo's cut, "Take Hold," a driving nine-minute track with a relentless four-to-the-floor beat that sprouts all sorts of eerie synths and twisted vocal samples.

"We've been talking about joining forces for awhile but time didn't permit with our hectic schedules," Moudaber tells Rolling Stone of working with Beyer. "There are plans to do more after the summer together; there will be more where this came from. We consistently bounce ideas back and forth; we work very well together. We come from the same ethos that is pure techno."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
