The infatuation between Frank Ocean and club music is here to stay. Premiering last Saturday during his 'blonded RADIO' show on Beats 1, Ocean's latest track 'DHL' is his collaboration with the infamous Boys Noize. Listen to the full broadcast here, which was their first show since Christmas of last year.
'DHL' is a dubby, low-fi anthem, flush with tinny, auto-tuned vocal loops and a down-tempo astral ambiance. It was released as a single, while more new material is expected to follow.

During the party, Frank also debuted two other new tracks - 'Dear April' in collaboration with Justice, as well as 'Cayendo' which was produced with Sango. Both Justice and Sango also made surprise appearances to perform at the event.
