Bugged Out have been hosting the best events and breaking the biggest artists in dance music for the past fifteen years.
The likes of Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers and Fat Boy Slim have all been a part Bugged Out right from the beginning. Everyone from Green Velvet, Felix Da Housecat, Mr Scruff and Miss Kittin to Tiga, Lottie, Richie Hawtin, Rob Da Bank and Vitalic have all appeared on their line ups. While the likes of Klaxons, Erol Alkan, Simian Mobile Disco and Hot Chip are just some of the artists that have been part of the ultra cool Bugged Out compilation series. Their parties that take place across Europe in destinations including London, Manchester, Barcelona, Rome, Milan and Ibiza.
This month will see the respected club-night teaming up with one of this year's pop success stories: Little Boots. Bugged Out like partying with pop stars. They’ve done parties with Hot Chip, Saint Etienne and Klaxons to name a few over the years so they felt Little Boots fell the right category for a collaboration; she’s a proper pop star with very good taste in club music. Little Boots aka Victoria Hesketh is also undeniably linked to the club world, whether it’s through her compositions with Joe Goddard of Hot Chip, or her cover versions of songs like Ready For The Floor and Day N Night or even her choice of remixers, which include Rusko and Fake Blood. Her number one hit New in Town was also one of the soundtracks to the summer, while her debut album Hands has climbed to five in the charts. Hence Bugged Out approached her with the idea, seeing as they had already come up with the name! This will not be their first outing together however; as the 25 year old electro-popstress recently played the Bugged Out tent at this year's Field Day Festival in August.
Together they will take over a bespoke space in Shoreditch, allowing the Blackpool beauty to programme a boomin’ sound system as well as some rather fancy flashing lights. She has also chosen her line up very well which include Aeroplane, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip), Heartbreak and Cocadisco.
Aeroplane have rarely visited London this year so this is set to be a bit of a coup! They have remixed the likes of Friendly Fires and Grace Jones and are currently recording their debut album. Joe Goddard from Hot Chip is about to release his dance heavy solo album Harvest Festival on his own Greco-Roman label. Lastly playing records alongside Little Boots herself, are Heartbreak, the pop group heavily influenced by Italo disco and Piers Martin of London’s Cocadisco.
Little Boots says of her camp, “Joe Chip is great and such a versatile DJ, I love his sets. I've been a big fan of Aeroplane from finding out about them on the blogs so I’m really interested to hear them DJing. I am a huge Heartbreak fan so I’m really glad they are on the bill too.”
