Exploitation, the first single from Hairless Toys, the about–to-be released new album from Avant-DiscoPop queen Róisín Murphy has been given the bass heavy floorfiller treatment from Bristol’s finest GotSome. The reMix rubs impressive shoulders with work from the likes of DJ Sneak and Falco Benz on the single and more than makes it’s mark by drawing you into it’s hypnotic groove. Check it out below.
Pulsating robo-bass and a jump up beat drive this juggernaut of a track. Murphy’s vocals are the prefect counter for this throbbing and woozy House tune; her soft tones curling across the high-octane machine groove like smoke. GotSome serve up a symphony of tough rhythms, cowbell and loose keys; punctuated by those demonic synth growls. Strobe light stuff, GotSome are on a roll.
Last month leftfield DiscoPop queen Róisín Murphy announced her forthcoming new album, Hairless Toys, with a sneak peek at the first single from the record, Gone Fishing. In parallel to this, though, she’s teamed up with DJ Parrot (of Sweet Exorcist and The All Seeing I fame) for a one off release via Crosstown Rebels of this storming floorfiller, Jealousy. Due out next week, the tune was premièred by Annie Mac last week, check it out.
Whereas as the album allows Murphy to flex her musical muscles (she always injects her dance music with a certain avant garde quality) this single is right at home on Crosstown Rebels, being a pure club experience. Jealousy is a stripped back tune, distilled dancefloor ingredients, where Róisín’s vocals ride over eight minutes of a punchy House bass infused hypnotic groove. It’s not until the halfway point that the track really lets loose, adding an electric piano hook and a rising vocal arrangement to the mix. The whole affair has got a classic sound, due in part to Róisín’s vocals, which are so much a part of UK dance music history, and would slot neatly into almost any set.
Avant-Disco-Pop queen Róisín Murphy has announced the forthcoming release of her fist full length record in eight years. Yup, Overpowered was eight years ago! Surely that can’t be right? The new album is titled Hairless Toys and is due out next month. Check out the first single from the record, Gone Fishing, below.
The former Moloko singer serves up a typically ecclectic tune on Gone Fishing. From the purcussion to the layers of synth burbling, everything is meticulously crafted. Part experimental soundtrack, part mid-90s freeform Disco groover, Gone Fishing surprises at every turn in both it’s compelling funkiness and it’s mysterious depth. Ms Murphy’s vocals are as striking as ever and seem to draw you into the track. This all bodes very well for the album.

Róisín Murphy’s Hairless Toys is released 11th March.
London/LA House collective, featuring Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C, and Ali Love, Hot Natured are dropping their début album this week and have been teasing fans with hints of what to expect for the past month. One of the track we were most excited to hear was this one, Alternate State. We were excited because it features one of our favourite female vocalists, the wonderfulRóisín Murphy. Check it out.
It’s a deep, dreamy, groove that flows through Alternate State. Both the bass heavy music, and Róisín’s husky, sultry, drawl, slide out of the speakers like silk. Delicate beats, ghostly synths and a classic House vibe make this a smokey track with a solid core. Hot Natured album, Different Sides Of The Sun, will also feature guest turns from Egyptian Lover, Anabel Englund, Kenny Glashow, and S.Y.F.. It should be a good one.

Hot Natured’s debut album Different Sides Of The Sun is released today.
Toddla T’s new single is highly addictive. ‘Take It Back’, featuring Shola Ama and J2K, has been hammered by Annie Mac recently and kinda’ wormed it’s way into my head. It’s got smooth vocals, an infectious hook and a lush 90’s house pianos. That’s a recipe for a tune that gets in your head.
Mason and Róisín Murphy’s ‘Boadicea’ is finally out! It seems like ages it’s been slated for release.
The reMix package for the single boasts an awesome line up, including the amazing Evil nine and this killer mix by some of our favourite LA ElectroPoppers Human Life, who appear to have gone for the full on Chicago House workout, complete with massive stabs and acid burbling. If anything can be said about this reMix it’s that it’s fun as hell and commands you to move your feet!

While Oliver $’s reMix is a deep, deep, deep techy House track that is aimed squarely at late night dancefloor action.
