Originally from Montpellier, France, Kazy Lambist is a 22-year-old beat maker and producer whose recently-released extended play, Doing Yoga, sits somewhere between the elegant pop of Metronomy and the chill wave of Rush Midnight. The young artist’s new single “On You” is an infectious slice of laid back electro with polished beats and smooth sexy synths. Put on your sunglasses and enjoy!
The title track, which garnered good reviews upon release last March, is just as addictive and intoxicating. Word on the street is Kazy Lambist is currently putting the finishing touches to his 8-track debut album, expected later this year. Soon but not soon enough.

Young Karin - U
With this new EP we get a glimpse of Young Karin’s singular sound, a wise mix of hip hop influenced beats and avant garde pop productions, based on creative sampling, moody synths and distorted bass.

Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, unveiled her new album Working Girl a couple of days ago to generally positive reviews (4 **** from Q Magazine, The Times, The Telegraph). This third full-length is also quite a statement for the synthpop diva turned business woman who, having left behind the major label machine, now runs her own label On Repeat Records. Hence the title and the song “Working Girl”, which was written with fellow On Repeat associate Tom Aspaul and one of the UK’s most sought after producers Grades.
This new album was produced by Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Lukens, MNDR‘s Pete Wade, and Com Truise. Filled with her signature icy synths, airy vocals and well-crafted catchy melodies, the 13-song LP might not be an extremely adventurous album but it delivers the kind of sugar pop with hints of nineties dance music one expects from Little Boots.
The Working Girl Tour kicked off in style with a sold-out London show last week, featuring special guest Femme. The tour will be continuing across the USA starting in LA and closing in Washington, calling in San Francisco, New York and Boston on the way.
