      Ahead of the January 24 release of its latest various artist compilation, Vectors 3, Milo Smee-run label Power Vacuum has today shared one of the cuts off the record, Duran Duran Duran's "Drap Jam."

      The eight tracks on the compilation—which includes contributions from Beau Wanzer, Bleaching Agent, and Smee under his Bintus alias—all boast a clamoring cacophony of techno-heavy sounds. But the Berlin-based producer's contribution has a darker, creepier tone to it. Its gravelly rhythms skitter and crawl across the ears with the quiet force of a small army of centipedes. "Hungry Like the Wolf," this is not.

      Listen to Duran Duran Duran's "Drap Jam" below. For an extra visceral experience, check out a distortion-heavy video preview of the track along with its fellow B-sider, Wanzer's "Up Chucks."
