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

FlorrieMirror

BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT

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...

Kylie Minogue has released an 11-track sampler of her upcoming album Kiss Me Once. The title track was produced by Sia, who executive produced the entire album.

Watch and listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

Said Kylie of the upcoming album:

"The sound essentially retains my DNA, and what a Kylie song is, but I think that gives me room to manoeuvre because you have something like Can't Get You Out Of My Head, to Slow, to I Believe in You to I Should Be So Lucky - it's still within the pop/dance arena. But what it has done has for me most importantly, is injected a freshness and a vitality into doing what is basically what I've always done - I needed to have a fresh approach and Roc Nation has helped me do that."
