Lovefoxxx & Steve Aoki

OK, so I’m really not a fan of Steve Aoki, I find his music mostly pretty tedious. Derivative and simplistic I have no idea how he got famous, it seems generally from ‘knowing people’ rather than ‘being good at music or DJing’. However, I flippin’ love Lovefoxx and thankfully Mr Aoki hasn’t made something completely terrible in ‘Heartbreaker’, their collaboration.

It’s a surprisingly good, pretty funky, Electro Disco tune that’s actually catchy as hell which I’m loving more each time I listen to it. It comes with an ace video too! You’ve earned yourself a temporary reprieve Mr. Aoki, but we’re watching you.

‘Heartbreaker’ is taken from Steve Aoki’s album, ‘Wonderland’, out now.

Kavinsky + Lovefoxxx + Breakbot = OMG!!!

I really don’t know how much I can say here, the original of Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ featuring shared vocal duties with Lovefoxxx of CSS is pretty incredible, elevating Kavinsky far far above being an electro-House or French House artist, it’s a proper, retro-tinged, ElectroPop track. it’s pretty dark (save for Lovefoxxx’s counterpoint vocals), it’s mid paced, and actually really emotive. There’s no ‘banging’ in sight. It’s, dare I say it, beautiful!

So, let’s throw Breakbot into the mix shall we! Although (and this is just my personal preference) I prefer the original, I absolutely cannot fault Breakbot’s Disco opus, it’s got everything, literally everything, you’d look for in a Disco track!

-Edit- I’ve removed the .mp3, apparently that wasn’t the finished master, which essentially means the final track will be even better!

The ‘Nightcall’ EP, the continuing adventures of the Dead Cruiser, is released 15th March and includes a reMix from Dustin N’Guyen, who is rumoured to be Xavier DeRosna, we shall see!

Lovefoxxx & 80kidz; Ultra team-up!

Lovefoxxx

Japan based Electro heroes 80kidz ‘ave only gone and teamed up with Indie-Electro goddess Lovefoxxx of CSS, ain’t they!

Sounds like a match made in heaven, right? Well the track is everything you’d hope it would be. It’s a huge, dirty juggernaut that manages to be noisy and catchy all at the same time. The combination of 80kidz chainsaw Synths and Lovefoxxx’s madness is sheer genius.
