Planning to be a ‘futuristic version of Kate Bush’, one of my favourite new pop singers is launching a solo career under the name of Little Boots. Writing with Greg Kurstin in LA, Victoria has (temporarily?) ditched the indie pop and become a glittering disco princess. Her debut solo single is produced by Joe Goddard from Hot Chip and oozes Giorgio Moroder vibes with an undulating, almost creepy disco beat. It’s destined for a low key white label release pretty soon and I can’t wait to hear it on big club speakers with lots of room to do some epic space dancing, as I think my iMac speakers possibly(!) don’t do it justice.
I’m really into disco at the moment and am annoyed the only place there really is to dance to it is Horsemeat Disco in Vauxhall. I think I spend too much time on the gay scene with DJing that I’m trying to cut back socially or a spinster life with bags and cats awaits me. There’s also Disco Bloodbath in Hackney which I really need to try. Anyone know of any others.
