Jessica 6: White Horse + See The Light Album News

New York City’s Jessica 6 are preparing for the release of See The Light, their debut album, due in May on Peacefrog Records. The first single to be offered up is White Horse. The deep vocals of spellbinding front lady Nomi Ruiz spun me into a trance right on the very first listen. This song is the perfect blend of disco and house elements with a soulful twist.

The above image from the White Horse video shoot, implies that we’re also in for a visual treat when its released! I can’t wait to hear more from them, consider me memorized!

p.s. Fun fact – the band were all involved with Hercules and Love Affair at one point or another – Camille

Hercules & Love Affair: My House (Video Premiere)

By now you should have heard My House the first single from Hercules and Love Affair‘s forthcoming album Blue Songs that is due for release on January 3ist through Moshi Moshi. Now feast your eyes on the 80’s – tastic video that just premiered today. This video that looks like a TV dance party for a show like The Tube (or the American equivalent) back in the day is so spot on, it makes me so nostalgic for that era! – Camille

CocknBullKid: Hold On To Your Misery (Hercules & Love Affair Remix)

I still can’t get enough of the CockNBullKid‘s official second single Hold On To Your Misery and the host of stellar remixes that accompany it. Earlier this month, we premiered the Sunship mix of the track (grab it here) and now it is time to share with you the Herclues & Love Affair mix, which turns the track into a house flavored delight that I just adore.

I’m now waiting patiently for the release of third single,  Asthma Attack since my appetite was whet after previewing the live version it this clip from one of her performances. Bring it on! – Camille

Hercules + Love Affair: My House

Hercules and Love Affair return with their signature minimalistic house sound on My House, to be included on their sophomore album Blue Songs. The new release is said to contain less disco/house infused tracks, moving on to a more sophisticated + varied sound. Gotta change it up from time to time!  I’m not a big fan of the artwork for this release, so I made my own above. Enjoy!

JESSICA 6: Fun Girls EP + Byzar Remix

When I first saw this artwork above I thought ‘oh shit’ something new from Miss Kittin‘! – but even better, it’s Jessica 6 (Nomi from Hercules and Love Affair) with Fun Girl. It’s a dancier, poppier, grittier darker cigarette smoking version of what we love from Hercules – with a distinct early 90’s funky feel to it. Perfect for a late night dance at a club…be it your home or out in this freezing rain we’re having right now in Brooklyn! Check out the Byzar Remix below. - Matt
