Future Classic: Braille “The Year 3000/Leavin’ Without You”

It was love at first hear. I’m talking about Braille‘s Leavin’ Without You. Back in early May I didn’t even get to hear the full track, all I got was about 1-2 minutes of snippet on the Rush Hour website. But that was enough for me to fall for it …
