Not complacent about “Motorway” being one of her finest tracks to date, British disco siren/DJ Little Boots has expanded the atmospheric Nocturnes opening track to a swirling 7-minute epic joy ride. Billed as the “Little Boots Discotheque Edit”, the eargasmic extended version should please any fan of disco beats, bongo drums and vintage synths. To sweeten the deal, Victoria is kind enough to offer it up as a free mp3 download, so you can sync it to your iPod, add it to your getaway playlist, blast it in your car and driiiive away.
Seriously loving this.
And just in case you haven’t heard the original, it’s still available as a free download too!
Little Boots is readying a new single just in time for Record Store Day. Out on April 23 as a free download and on limited 12” vinyl, “Every Night I Say A Prayer” is produced by Andy Butler of Hercules & Love Affair. Earlier today, the Tensnake mix got its first play on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show. It was claimed to be an exclusive premiere, but in fact Victoria did give away a sneak peek a month ago on her free “Into The Future” mixtape. Sneaky Boots! I’m digging the futuristic electro-funk vibes of the remix, and definitely looking forward to hearing the original in full. Check out the untagged preview below.

Someone has also kindly uploaded a fuller rip on Soundcloud.
UPDATE: You can now stream & download the full mix on her Soundcloud.
As if the new Little Boots single “Shake” doesn’t sound like Saint Etienne enough, Crazy P has given it another reswizzle that totally reinforces that impression, albeit of their more organic side. If the original aims for the dancefloor, then this mix is for the ride back home, when you heart’s already been broken, but you carry on shaking anyway. Check it out.
I quite enjoy “Shake” in its full length, by the by. It’s no “Stuck On Repeat”, but it’s fairly enjoyable in its bubbly ’90s-house-lite way, with some catchy la-la’s to boot. And it’s not often that a pop single is out for purchase here at the same time as the UK, so props to Victoria for letting it happen.
