Marina And The Diamonds forthcoming single (her first general release?) ‘Hollywood’ has had it’s video débuted, It’s as witty, anthemic and quirky as you’d come to expect from Marina. The clip is directed by Kinga Burza:
I’m quite looking forward to hearing Marina’s album, ‘The Family Jewels’ when it drops. ‘Hollywood is out 1st February 2010.

It’s that time again, for one of the greatest UK Electro acts around, CHEW LiPS, to kindly give away another free track to coincide with the last of their regular club nights.
This time there’s a twist though, while previous giveaways have been taster of what to expect on their painfully anticipated for coming album, this tune ‘Rising Tide’ won’t be featured on the release and the band have put it up online for a limited time only.
The music here has got an almost Yazoo flavour which works perfectly with Tig’s vocals.

As a bonus, here’s FC Kahuna’s reMix of last months free track ‘Slick’:

Ooo, it’s nearly ‘new Hot Chip album’ time!
8th February 2010 is the current release date for ‘One Life Stand’, Hot Chip’s fourth full studio album but the guys have decided to tease you all with this, the title track of the album.
‘One Life Stand’ is a brilliant title and the lyrics do it justice. The song is a mellow Dance-Rock sounding track which manages to come across full of genuine pathos while keeping the dancefloor happy.

You don’t have to wait until February! Hot Chips precious four records are available now!

September saw UK Indie-Popsters and MySpace darlings Flamboyant Bella release their single ‘Get A Reaction’ to much hype.
LA duo Breakdown stopped by the electronic rumors inbox to showcase the reMix they supplied for the single, and what a fantastic slice of Electro-Dance-Pop it is too!
Huge, pumping bass dominates the track which sounds great with Flo Kirton’s vocals and a slight hint of Nu-Rave about it gives it that edge.

Le Corps Mince De Françoise are about to release their first single for Kitsuné Music. ‘Something Golden’ originally appeared on the 8th volume of the Kitsuné Maison series and now the crazy Electro girls are set to deliver a package with some killer reMixes.
Zebra & Snake and Renaissance Man both take what is quite a disjointed song (true to LCMDF’s style!) and work it into their individual dance grooves, although both reMixes have an individuality and edge that is fitting for a LCMDF track!

This reMix of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Under The Sheets’ is actually a couple of months old but i felt like sharing. Cardiff newcomers Friends Electric are already causing waves and if this mix is anything to go by they have a bright future ahead of them. This is a solid reMix, a bass heavy floor filler!

Have they added backing vocals? Nice!
‘Under The Sheets’ is out now.

I love ‘Reunited’, it’s one of my most played tracks this month, i seriously can’t wait for Fan Death’s ‘A Coin In The Well’ EP that the track is taken from.
To tide us over, have a listen to this reMix of ‘reunited’ by Sheffield based Electronica artist Ghost Hunter. Dragging Fan Death into strange new places, Ghost Hunter morphs Fan Death’s moody disco into moody electronic soundscapes. Nice use of the lead line!

‘A Coin In The Well’ is due out January 4th 2010 (yes, again, i will inform you that this is my birthday!!!):

A man like Beaumont has dropped his latest offering into the electronic rumors inbox, we always look forward to Andy’s tunes here.
‘Surface Mission’ is a really intricate, chilled Electro tune with some sweet bit-crunched and distorted sounds which build up to those Disco synth strings.
Give it a listen!

Go show Andy some of your hard earned MySpace love!

Neon Gold certainly live up to their name, time and time again they churn out top act after top act.
Last month NG’s next hot artist Penguin Prison released his début single ‘Animal Aninal/A Funny Thing’, which generated a lot of hype with it’s bubbly ElectroPop catchiness.
Here we have a reMix of ‘A Funny Thing’ by London Indie-Synthsters Monarchy who make the track just that little bit deeper.

Penguin Prison have also released into the wild an instrumental of the tune.

Iceland’s crazy bassheads Steed Lord have dropped their own reMix of ‘Royal Ruffian’ taken from their album ‘Truth Serum’.
It’s a hell of a lot heavier than the original (now that the original was lightweight!), the lead synths and vocoders remain but the beats and bass hammer through the speakers.
