Heavy Drug (Surrender Sounds Mix) is an EP released by British electronic music act Unkle. According to James Lavelle, the track was born during a late night session, when he and his brother, Adian Lavelle, were working on serveal remix projects, which resulted in what they called a "happy accident". The track was reworked during the sessions for Where Did the Night Fall set for release in May 2010.[2] A remix was made during the recording, entitled the Surrender Sounds Mix, which was featured on James Lavelle's Global Underground 037: Bangkok, and was officially released on 16 August. It was delayed in USA, due to distribution errors, and was finally released on 28 August 2009.[3]

A follow-up, Heavy Drug (Surrender Sounds Mix): The Remixes, was released on 27 December 2009, with remixes from King Unique, Steve Mac and Future Beat Alliance.[4]

A video contest for the song was officially revealed on UNKLE's blog.[5]
