Songbird and remix darling LITTLE BOOTS is getting her chance to gab on VBS about the one and only STYLOPHONE. Seems to me like a pretty good endorsement, I’ve been wanting one for some time now, but haven’t seen them in shops till recently. Urban Outfitters sells them in the “Hip Junk” section of their stores, so if you can’t resist go now and get one!
The device it’s self is actually very cool, I may have to buy one on pay day before this video goes viral and they sell out. Hit the jump to view another video of Little Boots kicking a bedroom version of “Meddle” that shows the Stylophone in action. Continue reading →
Victoria Hesketh, AKA LITTLE BOOTS has been frying in the blogs for a few minutes already but here’s a new reconstruction of “Remedy” from Barcelona’s BUFFETLIBRE and SIDECHAINS. The combination tastes a bit like chicken fingers saturated in honey dill – sweet and savoury.
Veteran producer and mashup artist COPYCAT brings you this tasty gem that should have the girls dripping, something. Drinks maybe? Get yer mind out of the gutter, although yer right. The warm filters a la Fred Falke combined with pre-indie 80s creamypants angular pop of Duran Duran is enough to melt anyone’s danger zone into sticky parts.
One of my absolute favorites during APC’s two-year existence is without a doubt Little Boots. We were quite early picking up La Hesketh and pretty soon her many unofficial tunes, remixes and long mixes became a staple on APC. We simply worshipped her and adored her impeccable taste in music, exemplified with numerous quirky covers and a BRILLIANT posse of remixers and producers by her side. Some days we could even post several of them in a row – in fact, it became kind of an challenge to scout new Little Boots related tracks and post them first…
Finally, when the big official debut release arrived, the magic was gone. Her first single was bland – and that’s me being kind. The rest of the new material on the album didn’t really impress me either. So I started to lose interest and found other obsessions. But when it was time to decide on a track for the AudioPorn Central anniversary, I couldn’t really see myself remixing anyone else than Little Boots. And just to make it interesting, I went for the aforementioned crap single – albeit in a terrific, wistful 80s infused remix by the ever so brilliant Fred Falke. Here it is accompanied by Duran Duran’s classic “Girls on Film”. My first mashup in ages. I’d almost forgot how fun it is to make them…
Happy birthday APC! And Simon, my brother, thank you! For everything.
Here’s the latest from HEADS WE DANCE featuring LITTLE BOOTS. The A-side of the single showcases angular production from the Leeds three-piece while the flip gets some remix treatment from Russ Chimes, Hot Pink Delorean, Geek Chic Soundsystem and DON DIABLO.
