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.
Krisp is a Miami based band that combines elements of indie rock, disco, new wave and dream pop.
The band is comprised of Jason Mavila, Juan Ledesma, Alex Lopez, and Charlie Woods. Krisp has opened for acts Nancy Wang (LCD Soundsystem), Miami Horror, Junior Boys, Blood Orange, and Holy Ghost!, among others. In August of 2012, Krisp released their first official EP, Mamani Vice, which was featured and reviewed in music blogs including Earmilk, Hype Machine, Indie Shuffle, Night drive, and Beached Miami, to name a few. The band is currently working on a full length LP, Sonic Monarch.
With a sensibility for analogue performance, its as if the essence of looped samples and bedroom recordings were being reinterpreted by a traditional quartet arrangement. The band uses a non-hierarchichal approach to song writing where ideas are shared within the apolitical setting of jam sessions.
EONS is an Indie/electro-dance band from Miami, FL. The live shows are a high energy epic experience with a plethora of LED lights . JOHNNY DEEZAL on vocals, guitar, and keyboards , and MATTY G on live drums.
