Santa Hates You - Rocket Heart
Electro Peter Spilles is a busy guy. Not only is he pretty much the mind behind Project Pitchfork, he also have his side project IMATEM (which I find highly interesting) and lately also the side project Santa Hates You together with a girl named Jinxy.

They released their debut album 'You're on the Naughty List' back in 2008 and I must say I was not really that impressed. Nevertheless I was still eager to hear their follow-up EP 'Rocket Heart'.

The track "Rocket Heart" is one of those tracks that really sticks, it's a catchy and upbeat, sexy, electro dance floor tune and even though you are doing some casually listening to the tune, you could be sure you will hum on the few lines of lyrics this track include.

... and that is really my problem with this EP, the few lines of lyrics. "Hey boy, hey girl, watcha' waiting for - You are the core!" and there you go, that's it. It surely works out fine for the title track, but since the EP have five remixes of the same tune (some of them better than the others) you'd get pretty tired of hearing the same few lines over and over and over again, like a bad propaganda tryout (maybe it works?). However, if you haven't already seen the video for this tune, do so now, it's one of the best video's I've ever seen in this genre.

Part from the original version and the five remixes of "Rocket Heart", there's also a B-side called "The Bonus 1.0" which is an instrumental track that's way to easy just to skip by. The 8th and last track of the EP is a cover of And One's classic "Deutchmaschine" and it's highly interesting. Note that I did not explicitly say great, I said interesting. Nevertheless, with the help of Jinxy, this tune is now hotter and sexier than And One's Steve Naghavi ever would be able to do.

I have some trouble to rate this; I love it and dislike it both at once. I will just finish this off by saying that I'm looking forward to see what Peter and Jinxy will do in the future, because this project have high potential.
