Flashback to 2009: one of the year’s most fevered pop breakthroughs emerges from the depths of clubland with a crossover dance-pop track called ‘Stuck on Repeat’, an infectious club hit produced by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, shortly followed by the chart-topping debut album, ‘Hands’.
Last November, Little Boots returned with surprise release; the monstrous six-minute modern disco epic ‘Shake’, constructed in one afternoon after a spontaneous liaison with Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. With an exclusive world premiere on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, ‘Shake’ shot to Hype Machine’s No. 1 spot, and within 24hrs, “#shake” was trending worldwide on Twitter. Boots was back, and in sensational new dance-pop form.
Record Store Day 2012 saw the exclusive release of the icy piano-house classic ‘Every Night I Say A Prayer’, a collaboration with a long-term admirer Hercules and Love Affair’s Andy Butler, complimented by a frosty retro club remix by the one and only Tensnake.
But the first real commercial head-turn moment from Boots’ second LP (due for release in Spring 2013) is the buzzing groovy disco-pop team-up with NYC heavy-hitters The Knocks, ‘Heaphones’. An inspired loopy, sample-laden crossover smash-in-the-making, ‘Headphones’ is a sure sign that Boots has her sights set on big things this year, and with remixes from God-like house and garage producer Todd Edwards, French dance royalty Dimitri from Paris, The Knocks themselves and pop-chanteuse Ronika, dance-pop domination looks set in stone for Little Boots.
Midnight Magic is a cosmic disco ensemble with a desire to make you, the listener, and the rhythm, become one. Anchored by New York City underground dance music vets Morgan Wiley and W. Andrew Raposo, and powered by vocal temptress Tiffany Roth, the band's size matches their larger than life sound, ranging anywhere from four to nine people. The singles "Beam Me Up" and "Drop Me a Line", along with their star studded remix treatments, solidified Midnight Magic as an underground nightlife staple. 2012's 'Walking the Midnight Streets' marked the group's full length debut; an expansive record that introduced fans to a wider variety of the band's abilities. After touring in support of Holy Ghost and Cut Copy, the band returns with a new EP on Soul Clap Records this October.
