Groovy, Sexy & Soulful Part 17

My favourite track of 2012 so far is the catchy debut single from Alison Valentine (picture). I like her video of ‘Peanut butter’ in which she sort of gets kidnapped by a pirate surf dude (who wears a 32 year old shirt…). She claims to be influenced by Michael and Janet Jackson, Prince, Donna Summer and the Italo-disco genre. She owns a floral design company by day, because she hasn’t earned any money from her music yet. She tells that on her debut EP there will be a b-side to ‘Peanut Butter’ as well as a Sugarcubes cover, both done in the production style of ‘Peanut Butter’:
They fit together nicely as a little collection’ (full interview on NYU Local).
Valentine recently released a couple of remixes of ‘Peanut butter’ on Soundcloud, for instance the nu-disco / early house ‘Moon Boots remix ’ and the hip hop one from Married to the Mob (sampling ‘Regulate’ from Warren G.) that I play in this 17th episode of ‘Groovy, sexy & soulful’. Enjoy!
