‘Business Pleasure’ is the new EP from Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh), the first taste of her forthcoming third album, and maybe the most candid, powerful release she’s made to date. Channelling the posturing and paranoia of inner-city tension in 2014 into a manifesto of perfect ‘DIY pop’ and ‘narrative house’, taking influence from late Nineties Everything But The Girl (“when house music told stories…”), spooked Noughties R&B a la Lumidee and Cassie, and the rawness of breaking producers like SOPHIE, she’s refined a formula of the most legit leftfield electronic production set against her trademark haunting pure-pop melodies. With a little help from the likes of Com Truise, Simian Mobile Disco’s Jas Shaw, Pete Wade of MNDR and John Beck, the man behind Joe Goddard’s ‘Gabriel’, she’s crafted a visceral world of stories, hooks and beats, that you might call confessional, if it wasn’t so damn catchy.
AVAN LAVA is New York City's freshest Super-Pop act to come out since Madonna. "We've never had the pleasure of witnessing such a fun band!" - KEXP, "Disco future heaven" - Swizzlestick, "Critic's Pick" - TimeOut NY, "...completely blown away and captivated by their infectious energy and sound live...raw joyous energy, bright beautiful sounds and lust for life, as well as a few more carnal things...." - Kick Kick Snare
Notorious for their banging beats, laser shows, choreographed sequences, and unmatched energy, the group explodes in your face. Their sophomore EP Flex Fantasy was released February 21 to much critical acclaim, and has been heralded as the "Next phenomenon in upbeat party music" - The Pop Aesthetic. Every show this year has been SOLD OUT. Catch them now so you can say you did.
