LITTLE BOOTS (dj set)
‘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.
MANICS is a Left Brain / Right Brain production duo by Jordan Deherrera and Chris Sanders. Their "Personalities EP" was released in April 2012 and received critical acclaim. The project was a strange convergence of Indie Dance and 110 bpm electro (known as moombahton). Following this release, the duo has released some 20+ originals and remixes with large and small labels including Dim Mak Records, Oh My God Its Techno Music, Temple Music Group and more.
One year after their first EP, Manics started their own label, POPGANG Records. As curators and producers, the duo aims to release quality independent dance music that breaks away from cooky cutter "EDM." Deep house, Techno, Trap, and Indie Dance/ Nu Disco are all part of the POPGANG Sound.
