Well, this is a nice start of the week surprise. ElectroPop princess Little Boots is not only releasing, digitally, two tracks that have only been available previously on limited edition 12”, but she’s releasing them for free. All in celebration of her impending show at Heaven in London where she’ll be playing a special set with a one-off expanded live band. So get stuck into these two hypnotic edits of Broken Record and Strangers.
Both are tracks taken from her recently released sophomore album, Nocturnes, presented here as quite radically reworked dancefloor monsters. Strangers becomes an eight minute epic with all the DJ friendly bits expanded and a few Dubby effects thrown into the mix to form a decent edit. It’s companion, Broken Record, delivers on the album version promise of an Acid workout. The original track starts to fade out at around four and a half minutes, just as the dirty 303-esque riffs kick in. On this Nocturnal Version you get an extra three minutes of pedal-to-the-metal dancefloor action. Not to be sniffed at.
Little Boots’ Nocturnes album is out now.
