With six consecutive chart-topping club hits, Erika Jayne is definitely clubland’s favorite pretty mess. It’s been a hot minute since her last collaborations with Dave Aude and Luciana (“Party People” and “One Hot Pleasure”) were released, and though we’ve been teased with “You Make Me Wanna Dance” (with the hot video filmed in the Phillipines) and “Get It Tonight (featuring a rap from Flo Rida), our patience will soon be rewarded with “Painkillr.” Seemingly inspired by aptly named comic book character “Painkiller Jane,” the lyrics about love being her painkiller would be in SciFi talk, the source of her regenerative life force. OK, so I am reaching, but “Painkillr” is a solid pop song with a memorable chorus (and thankfully they dropped the E at the end of the title rather than changing it to a 3). For clubland, a full spate of remixes from tribal to electro to progressive come from Oliver Twizt, Cole Plante, Lynnwood, Mike Cruz, and Victor Dinaire & Bissen. In the next few weeks, we can probably expect a super sharp video as well. How hot would it be for Erika to transform into a superhero for some cosplay?
