Goldfrapp: Allison Goldfrapp (vocals, synthesizer); Will Gregory (synthesizer).
Electro-pop outfit Goldfrapp draws heavily from early-1980s synth-pop acts like Berlin, disco divas like Donna Summer, and the edgy sounds of contemporary electronica. In anticipation of the group's 2005 full-length SUPERNATURE, Goldfrapp released the NO. 1 EP, a collection of six songs that previewed tracks from that album, including the thumping "Beautiful," the spacious, dreamy "All Night Operator," and "Ooh La La."
"Ooh La La" had already gained considerable steam as a single by the time of the EP's release (debuting at No. 4 on the U.K. singles chart), and the Tieschwarz Mix here expands on the song's insistent, club-friendly groove. The EP is rounded out by remixes of the title cut, which help to make this teaser totally satisfying in its own right.
