New York-based techno0pop champ Matthew Dear plays the Vanguard on Friday night, and in honor of that, we've got the exclusive free download of the single, “You Put a Smell on Me.”

From his label, Ghostly International:

“Its drums are militant, its pace is unswerving, and the squarewave synths that start falling like mortar shells are searing and wide-eyed.

Then there's the marbled voice of Dear himself, pent-up and sexually charged, beckoning you for a ride in his “big black car.”

Is it hot in here, or is it just us?

The track has nothing in common with the fantastic “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin' Jay Hawkins (aside from the sexual tension), but that's no reason to pass up a good thing.
