Videos of the year 2010

Well, there could be only one really, and of course it is the amazing "Invisible Light" by the Scissor Sisters. My guess is they've blown their entire video budget on this thing, but it was worth it:

But coming up the rear in a very close second is the fabulous "Alive" by Goldfrapp, which manages to combine elements of goth, aerobics, devil-worship and cheesy 80's disco. Basically it's Xanadu with vampires. With a queentastic Alison leading the action:

And if you like that, then check out the ladies of "Jazzercise", apparently a big inspiration for "Single Ladies":

DEN HAAN Universal Energy Free Download

Crosspost from Shallow Rave:

Our good friends at Radio Magnetic are giving away an MP3 by our other good friends in the band Den Haan. It's a vocoder-tastic tribute to 80's disco producer Patrick Cowley, and it is bloody awesome. Get it here.

Niallist comes second in Pierre Pascual remix competition

W00t! I came runner-up in the Pierre Pascual remix competition! :-)

MM Minimano ( Hong Kong )
2nd prize : Délicat mixx by The Niallist ( for the groove! )
3rd prize : Noisy pearls remix by KathCharles Martin Gonthier Béringer ( for the sensibility )
All 3 win COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHY of Pierre Pascual !
...Thanx to EVERYBODY for your participation ♥ ♥ ♥"

Pierre Pascual is a French artist I have been following for a while, he also goes by the name "Chose Chaton". He makes romantic electro with a distinct queer edge, and his track "Teenage Love" will bring a tear to your eye. I did a disco-style remix for this, taking cues from French electro and nu-disco.
