"...reprogrammed by the city's foremost basement-party hipsters, frontwoman Erin Harpe has been reborn as a soulful electro-rock diva... Virtual Booty Machine [is] off-the-meathook reggaeton smash, Casio-beat dance punk and vocodered come-ons, it's Stefani-esque certified potassium."

-Carly Carioli, Boston Phoenix - On the Download


These four original songs have a funk element to the music that makes each and every song prime dancefloor material. Lovewhip have certainly carved out a unique niche here, combining reggae, funk, rock and electropop to make a very distinctive sound. The balance of the album is a little heavily swayed toward the remixes, which normally would be a detriment to the album. However, here they are diverse enough in style to make the repetitive factor not become the issue it could. Recommended!

Lovewhip knows what people are thirsty for! Finally, a digable groovin' disc is circulating. Lovewhip knows what people are thirsty for - and meet the need by quenching the soul track after track!

-Theresa Orlando


Any of these songs will make you get up and dance. Title track "Virtual Booty Machine", really makes the listener want to move. It's a fun tune and there are three more remixes of it here. My favorite one would be "Rebooty" (the Mark E. Moon mix).

Amy Lotsberg - Producer of Collected Sounds, Women in Music


If you have any interest in dance pop, this is a very safe purchase. This is one I'll hold on to and revisit.

-Chris Lonsberry,


Lovewhip, that danceable mélange of calypso and African beats, fell through a breach in the space/ time continuum and emerged as dance club mavens. Circa 1982. Virtual Booty Machine is four original tracks with seven DJ remixes, pulsing with beats, synths, samples, and loops. This Lovewhip release is still a dance party, kids. They’ve just replaced Tiki dolls and palm trees with strobe lights and disco balls.

-Lexi Kahn, The Noise


This Cd comes together in every way. I like this also cause the beats differ from song to song. It's a cd that no matter what kind of music you like THIS one will grab you.

-Bruce Pearson, Former Boston Local Band Radio-Host
