The OXD Mirror:
(Re)Introducing Florrie and a set inspired by Plastic Plates



The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.  


Florrie - 'Seashells'

British model/drummer/pop singer/songwriter Florrie first occupied my ears 3 years ago with 'Call 911,' which was briliantly remixed by disco mastermind Fred Falke in 2010. The song quickly became my personal favorite of that summer (the more popular 'Happiness,' by Alexis Jordan, complemented it perfectly) and I've enjoyed following her career ever since.

After notable releases like 'I Took A Little Something' and 'To The End' on various EP's, Florrie is releasing a new EP, Sirensin April of this year – her first release since being signed to a major record label. The lead single, 'Seashells' has a heavy Middle Eastern backbone that complents Florrie's ethereal vocals, making it a nice slow burner for the dancefloor. While her debut album is rumored to be "still happening," we'll have to make do with yet another tease from the blonde bombshell, which will hopefully satiate us until the LP details are released later this year.

Tomorrow night, we're OCCUPYING Brooklyn's Cameo Gallery for OXD fan-favorite and ally, Plastic Plates' return to New York. Check out a set inspired by his pop, disco and house sensibilities, AFTER THE JUMP...

The track is the latest single from Hot Chip's In Our Heads album.
