Miss Hannah Holland has kindly shared with us her brand new single, Candy Darling, for her label Batty Bass.... AND in the spirit of Halloween generosity is also giving away for free a copy of her recent Mykki Blanco bootleg! We got the lowdown on both tracks from the lady herself...
What is it about Mykki Blanco's sound that attracted you to make the bootleg?
He's one of the most exciting emerging artists around, when Sinden sent me through the beats I was blown away with the downright filthy bass hiphop snarl and had to create it into a 4/4 situation so I could work his attitude into my sets.
What's the inspiration behind your latest track Candy Darling?
Candy Darling was one of Andy Warhol's factory superstars, she's had records made about her, by both Lou Reed and Blondie! An utterly fabulous character; I found some snippets of her speaking and decided to work a sleazy number around it.
And who are Clouded Vision, the remixers?
Clouded Vision are Matt Walsh (Turbo / Bugged Out) and Steve Cook. I'm a huge fan of their music and was honored they made this incredible remix, I LOVE it, it blows the dancefloor apart.
Can we expect to hear either track at Paris' Acid Ball next weekend?
And any other gems upcoming on your label Batty Bass that we should know about?
Next year we'll be doing a special New York series from some amazing artists making ferocious beats that are rocking the floors of New York's underbelly... plus a brand new Ride Commitee ft. Roxy track, which we are completely gagging about! Myself and Dan Beaumont are working on a remix, as well as Batty Bass and PAB favs The Carry Nation.
Catch Hannah Holland at Paris' Acid Ball next Saturday 3rd November with special guests Farley & Heller and residents Dan Beaumont and DJ Squeaky from 9pm - 3am.
