Uffie: “Difficult” Video

Paris-based underground electro-dance sensation, Uffie, just released the video for her latest single “Difficult”. The darling of French DJs, she has described her debut release, Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans (Ed Banger Records / Elektra Records), as a musical soundtrack to her journey from youth and into adulthood.

A Big Thank You goes to Lily over at Soul Psycho for the tip.

New Giant Step contributor Lily Kane ruminates on the worldwide pop star Uffie. Expect more from Lily in the future…

A new guilty pleasure in my life is Uffie, the American-born, Hong-Kong raised, cute-as-a-button electro chick. But the more I learn about her  (she’s been working with Steve Aoki and Ed Banger Records’ crew for a minute now), the less guilty I feel. Hell, I’m proud of it. I’d wear a hot neon Uffie T-shirt. Wanna fight about it?

The first time I heard Uffie, it was a while ago in some iPod DJ mix (I wanna say Girl Talk. Either that, or my cousin’s mix, it doesn’t matter.) The mix contained a bit of Uffie’s song “Hot Chick” with these fuck-off lyrics: ‘I’m like, hot chick that you can’t even touch / I’m like this cold-ass bitch and I ain’t ready to suck’. So obviously I loved this girl immediately. They’re questionable lyrics and I soon found out, as you will, that Uffie is just bursting with questionable lyrics. I would say this is a Level 1 on her personal Offensiveness Scale of 1-10. The lyrics, while always entertaining to me, are mostly idiotic, but the songs are perfect party anthems.
