Andy Smith hails from Croydon, a relatively unlovely patch of concrete in South London best known as one of the breeding grounds of dubstep. But the music Smith makes as LXURY floats far above  the high-rise sprawl. “Pick You Up” is another glowing testament to the vivacity of the U.K. house revival, a whoosh of thudding four-to-the-floor beats, dreamy crests of synth and a chopped-up vocal that weaves a spell of glowing uplift. Smith was picked up by the Hot Chip-affiliated Greco-Roman crew back in the summer; they will release “Pick You Up” officially as part of a new LXURY EP, Into The Everywhere, next February.
