Esteemed house music duo Walker & Royce have released Just What the World Needs, a stunning EP.

Out now via their own Rules Don’t Apply imprint, the two-tracker features Mindchatter and VNSSA. Just What the World Needs flaunts Walker & Royce’s dynamic production chops and ability to create masterful and emotive soundscapes.

"Same Way Down" is a dreamy and introspective song with Mindchatter’s distinct vocals, which float atop soaring chords and a slow-burning beat. On the flip side of the coin is "Outer Space," where VNSSA stuns in a quirky house banger with spacey synths and pumping basslines.

"I always have a lot of fun working with [Walker & Royce] and I feel like our styles compliment each other well," VNSSA said in a press release. "This new one is a dancefloor bomb and gets the crowd jumping!"
