We named Wynter Gordon one of 2011′s Most Criminally Overlooked Artists, and if her stellar contribution to DJ Steve Aoki‘s dance hit “Ladi Dadi” doesn’t prove it, then we don’t know what will.

The second single from Aoki’s album Wonderland, “Ladi Dadi” pulsates with a grimy dubstep vibe that helps to enunciate the song’s NC-17 subject matter: “And we don’t need nobody/Let’s have a little party/Just us two/Just us two/And we don’t need nobody/‘Cause we go Ladi Dadi/Just us two/Me and you.” Side note: I think my parents literally used to refer to sex as “Ladi Dadi” when they didn’t want me to understand what they were talking about. Yes, feel bad.

In the video, Steve and Wynter dive headfirst into a “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”-esque plotline. Steve and Wynter play a gorgeous couple who, after trying to seduce each other, also try to beat the crap out of each other. And guys, it’s legit — there’s blood. Black eyes and blood! Aoki explained to Rolling Stone, “This was the first time I ever got to do action [in a music video]. I loved the entire experience, especially our amazing balcony-diving, stair-falling stunt doubles!”

We won’t spoil the ending for you, but one half of this couple doesn’t make it and will have to hop back on match.com a lot sooner than expected.
