We are pleased to announce that fabulous French label Wagram have again featured one of our tracks – this time the 6u5 remix of ‘Venus in Hollywood.’ Available now on their compilation ‘Electro Swing Fever vol.3,’ the album is available digitally via iTunes and will soon also be out physically on 3-disc CD. Preview the track-list here and get swingin’…
Jet-setters that we are (in spirit!), it seems fitting that it’s been a week for international compilation news. This one hails from Japan (via our label there, Rambling Records), and they have included our electro-swing tune ‘Venus in Hollywood’ on a new release titled ‘Swingin’ Gold – Tribute To The Great Gatsby.’
It’s just been made available on iTunes Japan (for those of you with access to that – if you want our track alone it’s internationally on iTunes here). For old-school CD lovers we’ve been informed that there will be a full CD release coming in the Autumn.
Regardless of what you thought of Baz Luhrmann‘s film (looked amazing – waaaaay too long?), there’s no doubt that the 1920′s style it depicted still packs an absolute punch. We love to imagine Daisy and Jay doing the charleston to “Venus…”. And we’re also pretty thrilled with the fact it’s a nice mix of old and new artists and that our favourites Ella, Eartha and Louis are included – you could say that Sweet Tooth are dancing with the stars on this one

I’ve not posted about our new video for a while – humble apologies to those looking forward to seeing it. Exciting things are afoot in the land of Sweet Tooth, so we’ll have to keep our pretty cards close to our chest for just a little while longer… In the meantime, I want to cheekily pique your interest (“a tease? Who… me?”) by sharing with you the newest work by Maximilla (one half of the Belles who filmed ‘Venus’). This “Darlin’” short fashion film, made in collaboration with Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (as if you couldn’t tell), showcases Orla Kiely‘s Spring 2013 collection, which Kiely stateswas inspired by “Palm Springs, Slim Aarons, summer resorts from the 1960s, and the pool culture of that time period.”
It makes me wish that the briefest bliss of an ‘Indian Summer’ we just enjoyed in London could be endless. I adore the film’s dreamy, sun-lit playfulness. The music by Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone is perfect. And if the whole collection could find its way into my wardrobe sometime soon, I’d be most happy indeed.
The creative treatment they’ve provided is shaping up to brilliant so I couldn’t be more excited.
I’ll let you see their work for yourself – this film was made as a collaboration between Top Shop and my favourite magazine in the world, Lula(of which Sarah Sophie is ‘editor at large’ – a fabulous title if there ever was one).
We are thrilled to reveal the new artwork for our single ‘Venus In Hollywood,’available on iTunes (via our own label) and soon to be released (with this cover) by My Music – Poland as the first of the European album licensing deals we have afoot.

This times nicely with the release of another track from our collaborations project, a dance-floor friendly fidget house remix of ‘Venus’ by Paris-based producer 6u5. This cute video below is a mash-up of burlesque visuals to accompany the remix, painstakingly edited by Deadbug Films (see more of their work on YouTube and Vimeo).
The remix is available as a single via iTunes here. It’s also been included on Wagram Digital’s‘Electro Swing IV’ compilation by French DJs Bart and Baker, on iTunes and Amazon. And it’s soon to be on their forthcoming release ‘Spirit Of Electro Swing’ (outMarch 19th, 2012).
