Been wondering what’s happened to #8 on TGTF’s 10 for 2012 poll Kyla La Grange? Her single released on Chess Club Records in April, ‘Vampire Smile’, has been remixed by the cutely named Bristolian electroheads Seasfire, and you can listen to and download the remix below. And for those of you who haven’t heard the original, I’ve embedded the video below too. Enjoy.
She is currently on a mini-tour of England, making a stop in at Bath Moles tonight (23rd May), at Tunbridge Wells Forum tomorrow (24th May) before wrapping things up at London Village Underground next Tuesday (29th May). Her debut album ‘Ashes’ will be released on the 30th of July on her own ioki Records, an imprint of Sony, with whom she recently inked a record contract. (Well done, Kyla!)

Looking for something fun and worthwhile to spend your money on for Bank Holiday Monday on the 4th of June? Then consider FestiFeel, an all-day festival for charity taking place at London’s Queen of Hoxton that will be featuring an all-star line-up curated by 2012 Sony broadcasting gong winner and Radio1 presenter Fearne Cotton. All proceeds from ticket sales to this even will go towards CoppaFeel!, a campaign to encourage women to do self-examinations to help with the early detection of breast cancer. Makes a whole lot of sense that when women are given the right tools are armed with the right information, the higher the likelihood that they will do self-exams on a regular basis and thus be more likely to self-discover any abnormalities that might indicate breast cancer.
So far, among many others, TGTF favourites like Dog is Dead, Chew Lips and Slow Club have been announced for the festival, with more names to be added.
If you want to attend, tickets are just 20 quid each, with the charity directly benefiting from the total from ticket sales. Buy them here. But if you have read this far, you’re in luck: we have a pair of passes to the festival to give away to a lucky TGTF reader. Fancy your chances? Enter the contest below by providing us your name, your email address, and tell us why you deserve the pair of festival passes.The author of the winning entry as deemed by us and will be contacted by email. Please note that you are responsible for getting yourself to London in time for the event on the 4th of June, so do not enter unless you are sure you can attend. Entries must be submitted before noon on Sunday 27 May in order to be considered.
This contest is now closed and the winner will be contacted soon by email. Tickets are still available for purchase for the event here.
The current line-up as of today is available under the cut.
