Charley says VIDEO! Daruso – Since You Been Gone

July 29, 2010

You may have heard about this song before, but as it’s out right now I urge you to check it out again and get yourself a copy on iTunes!

“The new Cascada” would be a lazy comparison, but is correct in that Daruso consists of a singer in front of and producers behind the scenes.

The lovely Jess Russo provides the vocals, while Julian Gingell and Barry Stone are on production duties. You may know these two gentlemen as Jewels & Stone, the remix and production duo who brought us remixes of Stephanie McIntosh’s ‘Mistake‘ and ‘Watch This Space‘ from Britannia High.

Since You Been Gone‘ is a proper little dance gem, which I sincerely hope a lot of people will buy. Wouldn’t it be a waste not to get to hear what Daruso still has in store for us?

If you still find yourself in doubt, check out the Twilight Mix and let Jess’s voice do the convincing. Despite the Radio Edit being pretty damn perfect as is, the digital bundle also includes remixes from the likes Buzz Junkies.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Jess from Daruso’s exclusive guest blog on Charley says POP!

Charley says SONG! Dan Balan ft. Eleni Foureira – Chica Bomb

July 14, 2010

Former O-Zone singer Dan Balan has been keeping himself busy since the ‘Dragostea Din Tei‘ band split.

He released an album as Crazy Loop fronted by the eponymous lead single, which was rather ridiculous and a whole lot of amazing at once.

Dan, who keeps getting hotter with every video, is currently promoting his European hit ‘Chica Bomb‘. There’s one country who’s getting some extra attention though…

For the Greek release Dan is joined by Eleni Foureira who does the verses in the local language. I’m not familiar with Eleni, but judging by her MAD Video Music Awards performance she looks like a brilliant popstar. It’s probably just the hair, but she reminds me of DanceX winner and Britannia High star Rana Roy.

I wonder if more artists will follow suit? Maybe Greece will follow France’s tested formula of having international stars feature local singers for a translated verse or two?
