Who's ready to get sweet and sticky? Canada's candy-colored R&Beats favorite Pat Lok got in the studio with Los Angeles cool kids Party Pupils for a sickening sex jam that, thanks to some dirty words from rapper Dances With White Girls, plays equal parts cute and nasty.

"From The Back" is one for the ladies at the club who don't mind getting down and dirty but look good doing it. It's out on Pat Lok's resident label, the ever fashionalble French house Kitsuné Musique. It's future, it's funky, it's a little devious, and it's here to get the party started.

"I had been following Party Pupils on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it," Pat Lok tells Billboard Dance. "A few months ago, we finally met backstage at Electric Forest in Michigan, where we were both performing, and hit it off. They're based in Los Angeles, so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords. He put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam. It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together. I've been playing the demos out in in Asia and the U.S., and the response has been great. Getting Dances on the final version was the cherry on top."

Pat Lok and Party Pupils are currently in the midst of a double headline tour across North America. Stops in Denver, Chicago, the Pacific North West and California remain.

Check the full list of dates below, and listen to "From The Back" with Dances With White Girls a day ahead of its full release on Kitsuné Musique, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
