NEW MUSIC: Chromeo Feat. La Roux – Hot Mess
by Yvette Travillian
2010 can definitely saw the re-birth of 80’s synth pop in full-blast. The sounds that had me dancing in my Mary Janes as a little girl have plummeted into my headphones this year. Two artists leading the pack were Chromeo and La Roux. So it was only natural that as the year is coming to a close (and bloggers are finishing up their ‘Best of 2010′ lists) these two would decided to sneak in one last collabo-gem to get us all excited over.
“Hot Mess’ is the12″ B-Side to Chromeo’s latest single and this remix works largely due to Elly Jackson’s delightfully upbeat pop vocals. There is this slight Janet Jackson, “Pleasure Principle” – like-thing she has going that makes her voice so charming and lovable. Couple it with Chromeo’s signature throwback funk- basslines – and you have a nice song to beat out to. Check it.
