Ultra-dreamy pop twins Say Lou Lou (formerly Saint Lou Lou) possess an ornate sense of submerged style that still carries a catchy, liquid clarity. Their new single "Julian" (a first release from their new à Deux Records in partnership with our big brother label Downtown) is sleek recliner disco – a love song of raindrops and blood-red guitars.
Coma have built enough steam up in Cologne that the city's iconic label Kompakt has declared them a central act to 2013 and integral to the future of their dance-haven's music scene. Based on this new single "Hoooooray," I'm inclined to agree. The duo keeps it sterile, danceable, a little sleazy, a little gothic and poppy enough for their minimal-disco to leave a good bruise. Their debut album is out April 2013.
If you thought we were done gifting Little Boots remixes, ya dead wrong. This funky slip of “Headphones” by Moon Boots (no relation?) makes for a truly vogue-ready, moon-rave primer for Little Boots’ disco-balling EP through a fine combo of gluttonous bass and pinging synths. Catch that record on July 16, with the single remix package pre-order, here.
It’s a French refit for dance maven Little Boots on “Headphones.” A Dimitri from Paris refit to be exact, which makes for a bongo-beated, ‘80s-synthed, sparklepop holiday. Spun sugar for your ears here, and on the official single, with turns by Todd Edwards, The Knocks and Ronika on 679.
We don’t usually feature a remix before we feature the original from whence it came, but this is Eli Escobar’s disco-house slayer “Desire” we're talking about here, so we will gladly take its iterations in the order in which they come. Pastel-colored piano keys, triangle pings, snap-happy bass and the cashmere vocals of scene queen (and Jessica 6 lead) Nomi Ruiz shall transport you to a warm and squishy place. A foam-covered dance floor, probably. Add it to your growing bin of Escobar freebies, and then buy the rest of the EP over on Beatport.
