Electro-goth-pop princess, Charli XCX and pop-queen of diamonds, Marina and The Diamonds team-up for a seductive, delicious, criminally good new tune called, “Just Desserts.”
The collabo is in support of the duo’s upcoming North American tour kicking off May 6th in San Francisco, CA. The song is thought to be an Electra Heart leftover, a reworked version of a song called The Other Foot. (below)
Take a listen to the empowering, ‘revenge is sweet’ anthem below!

‘Music is Magic’ is available now via iTunes and Beatport.
German producer, Boris Dlugoschand electro-pop-dance diva, Róisín Murphy’s magical collaboration, “Look Around You”finally gets an official video! Sadly though, the forgettable video does not include a milli-second nor a single shot of the regal pop diva. Big mistake!!! Couldn’t they have, at least, flashed a photo or include a CD, vinyl or a poster of the divine Ms. Murphy lying around somewhere in the video?! This is not your typical run-of-the-mill vocalist—-this is Róisín Murphy for god’s sake! She deserves screen time! Ugh!!!
Oh well, moving on… In positive news, the single arrives with a set of remixes by Raik, Chopstick and Johnjon, andMaxi Soundsystem via Beatport. Preview some of the tracks below.
On the eve of the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album Nocturnes, Little Bootsunveils the video for lead single Broken Record, a swirling, hypnotic after-dark odyssey directed by the Au Agency (Alunageorge).
Mesmerizing, electronic-dark-chanteuse, EMIKAreturns with a brand new album entitled, DVA and new single, “Searching.”
The new trackis a slow burning gem that swirls in darkness. Bittersweet lyrics of faith and deception are beautifully delivered by Emika’s sultry vocals; while bouncy basslines and synthesized drums add a touch of R&B groove to the smoky track.
‘[Searching] is a song about deception, feeling the intentional deceit of someone close to you, and sucking the lies out from their eyes.
A few days ago Emika previewed her next single, “Sing to Me” via her Facebook page. The track is one of her most pop-friendly tunes yet—Although “Sing to Me” is a danceable song, it still offers the same poetic and dark lyricism we’ve come to know and love from the singer. “Sing to me in the dark, sing to me as the pain falls away” Emika softly croons above the melodic keyboard riff and hypnotizing club beats.
I’ve have been following Emika from the very beginning. Her debut album made it to our list of Best Albums of 2011; so needless to say I’m a huge fan. I’m extremely excited she’s finally visiting New York City on May 24 for a live performance! I’ll finally get to see her live (tickets here.) Be sure to visit her official site for more North American tour dates and to download her cover of Chris Isaak‘s “Wicked Game.”
Emika’s “Searching – EP” is available now via Ninja Tune. DVA arrives June 10.
British singer/songwriter/producer, Ali Lovereturns with “Emperor,” his first solo release since 2010′s eclectic dance record, Love Harder.
The groovy, deep-house cut features the sweet, lush vocals of singer, Kali and it’s accompanied by an eerie dreamlike video that can best be described as Kill Bill meets Michel Gondry (Bjork, Beck, Radiohead videos). Take a look.
If the name Ali Love doesn’t immediately pop— maybe the tracks below will refresh your memory. He was featured on The Chemical Brothers’“Do It Again” and Justice’s“Civilization.” He’s also a member of the incredible up-and-coming dance-house outfit, Hot Natured; whom we’ve featured several times on the blog.
”Emperor” is available now via Crosstown Rebels and Beatport.

Introducing Australian singer-songwriter, Betty Who.
We are extremely excited to introduce the talented newcomer on the blog! We stumbled upon her music a little while back and instantly became fans of her inescapable, sugar-coated, 80s flavored tunes.
Her debut single, “Somebody Loves You” produced by Peter Thomas (Hoodie Allen, Neon Hitch) is an infectious dance number with an irresistible hook that recalls the glorious pop-sounds of the early 80s when then newcomers, now icons, like Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson ruled the airwaves. The song’s official video is an equally nostalgic treat that charmingly captures the era. Think Flashdance and Cyndi Lauper’s “Girl Just Wanna Have Fun.”
Debuting her self-released EP, The Movement, on none-other than Billboard.com; Betty Who shared that “Somebody Loves You” was written right after the passing of the great Whitney Houston. She wanted to honor the pop icon but also drew inspiration from a recent breakup.
She tells Billboard: “When we were writing it, I had had enough distance from that relationship to have a moment where I could say, ‘Okay, not everything was bad”
In addition to “Somebody Loves You”Who’s,The Movement contains 3 additional tracks that shine as brightly as the first. The catchy songs, “You’re In Love” and “High Society” are two instant favorites. The electro-pop flavored tunes share the same charismatic pop-vibe as her debut. The perky vocals on “You’re In Love” and the dreamy, lush delivery of the ballad, “Right Here” will easily lure and capture the attention of any devoted Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding fans. The songs, much like the singer’s smile, are simply impossible to resist.
We are proud to feature and stream Betty Who’sThe Movement – EP which arrives today as a FREE download!
Listen below and lets welcome Betty Who into our lives…and to our summer playlists!

Electro-pop-dance Diva, Roisin Murphy’s 2007 album, ‘Overpowered’ has to be one of the best pop-dance records ever recorded. Yet, for some reason, the album failed to reach a commercial success. WHY? I’ll never know.
The chill, laid-back groovy track, “Primitive,” is one of the tracks from the album that has always screamed for a remix. Though there have been a few takes on the track, it is Italian production duo, italoBros that receives our highest praise.
The eclectic duo has masterfully infused the original track with a deep-house vibe that doesn’t strain too far from the groovy feel of the original. The 90′s dance-house beats in combination with Murphy’s smoky, sensual vocals take the disco-laden, “Primitive” from the cozy-surroundings of your bedroom into the spinning, neon-filled lights of a club’s dancefloor.
