This marks the Toronto DJ and producer's first release on Hot Since 82's imprint.

Toronto's Sydney Blu has steadily climbed the ranks as an enduring force in house music after nearly a decade of relentless touring, a menagerie of Beatport hits (she is the first female to crack the top 10 with 2008's "Give It Up For Me" via Mau5trap) and her signature Blu Party series that has become recognized the world over. On Friday (Oct. 20), the producer and DJ shared "Mind Games," her debut single on Hot Since 82's imprint Knee Deep in Sound as part of the label's ADE 2017 sampler.

Fitting the changing seasons, the sizzling "chune" sticks to the deep yet uplifting aesthetic of the Balearic-inspired brand and is primed for those sweaty late-night warehouse affairs. The six-minute earworm slowly builds from a classic house beat morphing into an underground slayer with an ominous distorted vocal sample that is sure to echo through the caverns of listeners' souls.

Sydney Blu's "Mind Games" is exclusively premiering with Billboard Dance -- take a listen to the stunner below.
