New Hot Chip + Album News

I've been listening to Hot Chip's breakthrough 2005 album The Warning for the last 2 years pretty solidly and I still love every track on it as much as day one. Since then they've released their excellent DJ Kicks compilation which showcased the song My Piano and gave us a taster of what sounds they've been working on.
Well their new album, titled Made In The Dark, is ready for release on the 4th of february and features 13 tracks including My Piano, Shake A Fist and a new track i've been hearing on the radio called Ready For The Floor. It's trademark Hot Chip, with a bouncing electro beat, twinkling electronics and Alexis Taylor's unique vocals and all together they make up the best pop song I've heard in ages.
Ready For The Floor will be the first single off the new album and comes out a week before, on the 28th of january. The CD features a great Soulwax remix of Ready For The Floor plus a Diplo mix of Shake A Fist.

Miami Horror

Hola amigos. Sincere apologies for the lack of posts recently. Rest assured that normal service has resumed.

To say sorry here are some lovely pieces of Aussie electro-disco. There seems to be no end to the quality dance music coming out of Australia (especially Melbourne) these days from the likes of Cut Copy, The Presets, Midnight Juggernauts, Van She, Riot in Belgium and the excellent label Modular.

Miami Horror is Ben Plant from Melbourne who's been generating a bit of heat with some great remixes over the last year. Giving two fingers to those who say electro is played out, Miami Horror brings you an unashamed 80s synth disco attack taking in the heavily compressed French house of Alan Braxe and Cassius along the way.

A debut album, titled Bravado, is due some time soon. In the mean time get your ears 'round this lot.
