The MySpace bloghouse pop star returns
Electronic musician Uffie has announced her return, teasing new music on her Facebook page.
Uffie’s 2006 Myspace demo ‘Pop the Glock’ made her a pioneer of the ‘bloghouse’ genre and a cult hero among Myspace users.
This new material is her first since her 2010 album ‘Sex Dreams and Denim Dreams’. Speaking to MTV, she said of her six year silence, “Having started so young, I just needed time to live a normal life – playing house, letting my kids grow up a bit before I came back. Life was passing out a lot.”
Revealing that she scrapped a second album entirely, she explained that this new music is “a different process” and “not part of that DJ scene.”
However, she described her fond memories of her time during the bloghouse scene. “I don’t think it will ever be what it was,” she told MTV. “But I think a lot of people would want it to. It was a fucking good time!”
For this new release, Uffie is currently working with The Walking Shapes guitarist Nathaniel Hoho and Ammar Malik, a writer who has worked with One Direction, Nick Jonas and Maroon 5. She plans to finish the album by summer of this year.
