Italian dance music force Mind Against have released their new single “Love Seeking” via DJ Tennis’ home for underground explorations, Life and Death. The single marks a triumphant return for the duo to the label from which they launched their careers with their seminal 2013 single “Atlant.”

With “Love Seeking,” Mind Against flexes reinvigorated songwriting depth. While the duo is best known for their dark, intense productions, this new soulful, retrospective single hones in on the euphoric sensations tied to finding love on the dancefloor. The sound, with its shape-cutting bass line, addicting hook, and rushing synths, aligns perfectly with what Life and Death does best, accentuating melodies, vocals, and indie dance elements in club-forward electronic music.

"This EP is very special to us as it marks our return to our very first label,” remarks Mind Against on Love Seeking. “Since the release of our Atlant EP in 2013, both ourselves and Life and Death have grown our own paths, and it’s a great feeling being back to our very first mothership with an artistic proposal transcending the usual genre boundaries”

Looking ahead, Mind Against will deliver the Love Seeking EP on August 9, which will feature extended/club mixes and a remix from Innervisions boss Âme. The release comes alongside lush new visuals from Hugo Richel (Balenciaga, Lil Nas X), bringing new dimensions to Mind Against’s new sound, along with a mind-bending new live show titled HABITAT, which debuted in April at London Roundhouse.

Hailing from Italy and currently based in Lisbon, brothers Alessandro and Federico Fogini have made a name for themselves as Mind Against in the global dance music scene, becoming known for their emotionally rich sound palette. With their signature deep and immersive take on house and techno and their continually masterful “all-night-long” performances, the duo has risen to become a globally in-demand and lauded act in the underground dance music space.

With a mission to resurrect sounds and trends that have come and gone, DJ Tennis (real name Manfredi Romano) minted Life and Death during a time when minimal, percussive music was dominating the underground. Romano broke the mold by directing soulful, lively sounds to the foreground alongside his own post-rock influences, resulting in beloved records from the likes of Red Axes, Recondite, Calita, Jimi Jules, and more.

Romano’s decade-spanning experience in the music industry—from punk band tour manager to event organizer, artist, label head, and everything in between—has sculpted him into the ideal tastemaker. He’s performed and collaborated on original music with LP Giobbi and Alex Metric, remixed the likes of Maribou State and Jungle, performed b2b sets with Gerd Janson and Kerri Chandler, and also has served as the manager for Tale Of Us and Carlita.
