One of the busiest DJs out there in the scene, LA’s Vice, has a new treat for us as Wednesday gives way to the free fall that will eventually get us to Friday. Known primarily for his work as a progressive house and electro producer, Vice channels his inner Tchami for a high energy, super dose of real deep vibes on Schoolboy Q’s “frat rap” standard, “Hell Of A Night.” We’re talking all the makings of a certified banger: punchy synth progressions, atmospheric build-ups into cataclysmic drops, and a fantastic repurposing of Schoolboy Q’s vocals layered over blistering, 80′s electronica inspired pads. If Vice were Victor Frankenstein, this would be the marvelous creation concocted in a secret lab. And thankfully, we here at Blisspop don’t shy away from monsters. We lovingly accept them.
Hit up Vice’s Facebook for the free download and listen to his remix after the jump.
Few pop musicians have been able to keep their essence like Little Boots. The English singer/songwriter and DJ has always been on trend and culturally on point even in the shadow of other artists like Robyn and Lady GaGa, but that has never kept her from being interesting and illuminating. Her newest release, “Business Pleasure,” is a totem of her commitment to quality pop music and it’s bound to get the kids going.
Synthy, techy, and infused with heavy doses of future bass, “Business Pleasure” is a transient, 1980′s sci-fi heater with a theatrical flair comparable to Bat for Lashes or St. Vincent. The pop aesthetic, therefore, is left on the sidelines to cheerlead while the soundscape evolves and culminates into an otherworldly soundtrack fit for a techno noir feature film. And as the sounds begin to escalate and arpeggiate into a trance backdrop, the track transcends into something beyond the cookie cutter pop music we’ve become accustomed to on the radio. This is new. This is encapsulating. And it sure as hell deserves any recognition it receives.
You can download Little Boots’ latest EP on all major digital media retailers and listen to the song after the jump.
Young star on the rise, Lido, has taken on one of our favorite tracks from Flight Facilities excellent debut LP. His stripped down version really puts the focus on Emma Louise’s gorgeous vocals and makes for one of the dreamier sound scapes we’ve heard in a while. The track is slow building and fragile, but it’s delicacy is wholly engrossing, drawing you into it’s web. Listen below

New Black Butter signee, Elderbrook, has just released the official video for his debut single “Could.” The video is nothing short of stunning, consisting of a series of animated oil paintings against textural background. New York artist Lauren Gregory is the genius behind the visuals and the video definitely speaks for itself. Check it out:
