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.
MNDR is an electronic music duo, formed in 2009 in New York City, consisting of Amanda Warner and Peter Wade. Warner moved from Oakland, California to New York City in 2008 to work as a songwriter for hire. It was only after meeting Wade that she began to consider fronting a musical act herself. MNDR has opened for bands like YACHT, Massive Attack, and Deerhoof and frequently collaborates with visual artist Jamie Carreiro, who provides visual effects for MNDR's live shows.
