Todd Terje‘s Inspector Norse is one of the most fun dance records we’ve heard in recent years, and Little Boots is back to bring this track back into the limelight with her sugary vocal rendition. The UK darling reigned supreme in the glory days of bloghaus, and after releasing an album called Nocturnes in May this year, it would appear that we can hope to hear her velvet vocal chords to cut through some more tracks in the back half of 2014.

Electropop babe/disco queen Little Boots is taking a ride on the deep house train and who better to co-conduct than Maya Jane Coles and James Ford (of Simian Mobile Disco)?  Little Boots, working under the moniker LB, has a new EP out entitlted “Superstitious Heart”.  The title track features LB’s vocals over the production work of the aforementioned MJC & James Ford.  The result is deep, luscious & hypnotizing.

The slightly techier & equally hypnotic B side, “Whatever Sets You Free”, features the production work of Baunz.  The EP also features fantastic remixes by Ralph Lawson & PBR Streetgang.

The “Superstitious Heart/Whatever Sets You Free” 12″ is out NOW.  The entire “Superstitious Heart” EP will be released digitally on February 18th via 2020Vision Recordings.

Back in the bloghaus heyday of 2008, there was a swarm of alty babes like Lykke Li, Little Boots, and Ellie Goulding (pre-Skrillex) who banged out club-anthems religiously for about 12 months…and then it seemed they all went on permanent vacations. UK singer/songwriter Little Boots bursts out of quasi-retirement today with her new single ‘Every Night I Say A Prayer’, which is a dreamy house number produced by Hercules and Love Affair front man Andy Butler. The single is accompanied by a bumpin’ Tensnake remix that screams 80s fluoro and big hair. Download both after the jump…

2009 was gnarly. MJ died. Obama was the cool black dude who got elected as president, but now everyone’s scratching their head wondering how he could be worse than the last bro, and this bass heavy genre of filth called dubstep kicked previous chart-topping bloghaus tracks to the curb. Here are some of my humble comments and selections from the year:

Biggest Dubstep ‘chune’ Emalkay – When I Look At You
-Few songs deserve the title of being called mega. This track goes so far beyond it. Skream dropped it during a set in Miami and I seriously thought this was the end of music as we knew it as kids literally bum-rushed the stage. After Emalkay pushed back the release date a few months, DJs were frothing at the bit to finally have the tune at their fingertips.

Das Elektronic Erol Alkan & Boys Noize – Waves
-While everyone and their brother either went mnml or wobble wobble, electronic gods Erol Alkan and Boys Noize stuck to their guns and produced a 9 minute epic. If you were a big time festival DJ in Europe worth your salt, you played this song.

Nu-Disco Loveys Damn Arms – Destination Pt. II
-This synth work in this track is second to none. It gets better every time I listen to it. I love it so so so much. Like seriously, so much.

Wobble Wobble Jack Beats – Get Down (VIP Edit)
-This summer I was in LA and spent the entire month of July and into August counting down the days to see Jack Beats are Hardfest. Long story short, cops busted the joint down and I never got to see him. FAIL.

Club Track Major Lazer – Pon de Floor
-Sure, we’ve all about had enough of this mayjah lazah song, but there is no denying how stoked you were the first few times you heard it out. If you told me that dancehall would be the biggest thing pon de charts since Justice, I would have told you to stop smoking so much reefer mon.

MNML-TEK HAUS Lazy Jay – Float My Boat (Pablo Decoder)
-I’m not gonna lie, my dad could probably produce a better ‘minimal’ song than most of the shit I hear these days (looking at you kid who just got ableton), but this Pablo Decoder track is massive.

!! RAVE !! D.I.M. & TAI – Lyposuct
-Easiest choice so far. Drugz and layzurs.

Hottest Babe who can sing award Ellie Goulding – Under the Sheets (Jeuce Rework)
If I was a chick I would be really envious of Miss Ellie Goulding. Her voice is too sexy. This Jeuce remix is my favorite out of the million floating around the blogosphere too (watch out for these UK kids next year)

So that about wraps up 2k9. Dub, disco, wobble and some cheeky stuff sprinkled in between. You could probably make a damn fine mix if you put them all together (food for thought) Anywho, here’s to more celebrities failing to realize that, yes, if you take too many drugs, you will die and people will mourn you via twitter (too soon??) Dance on into 2010 you dirty kids.

After having an extremely late night last night, I’ve been in a very mellow mood all day and I stumbled across something truly amazing. The Golden Filter is an electro-dance duo out of New York and has released the single “Solid Gold” on Dummy Records in the United Kingdom. Their songs are incredibly soothing and inspire the imagination with soft, hypnotic synthesizers and Penelope’s beautiful vocals. If you are anywhere near the LA area, please check out their set at the Avalon with Treasure Fingers on July 3rd. Tune in.

who is fake blood? where is fake blood? what is fake blood? i have absolutely no idea but his music is incredible. of course you’ve heard of the banger ‘mars’ but check out some of these nasty remixes done by the mysterious fake blood.






here’s a little bonus too. a pretty decent remix of fake blood’s mars.
