Charley says VIDEO! Lasgo – Sky High

May 9, 2012

Lasgo lead singer Jelle may have just had a baby, but she’s not letting that get in the way of being one of the most consistently amazing dance acts in Belgium. ‘Sky High‘ is another surefire classic and between this, AnnaGrace’s ‘Ready To Fall In Love‘ and his own ‘Everyday‘ producer Peter Luts seems unstoppable at the moment! Now all we need is for him to capitalise on Charlotte Buyl’s newfound The Voice fame to revive Pearl and we’ve got all our boxes ticked!

Despite its joyful lyrics ‘Sky High‘ seems to have kind of a melancholic touch to it in an “Oh my God, is this really happening?” kind of way. Then again, if you were in a music video where the plotline is to get Meysam from So You Think You Can Dance shirtless as often as possible you wouldn’t be able to believe your luck either. You’ve stopped reading at “Meysam from So You Think You Can Dance shirtless”, didn’t you? Fair enough.

“Sky High” by Lasgo is available on Spotify and iTunes.

Charley says SONG! Peter Luts ft. Lynn Larouge – Hands Up

June 25, 2011

When I talked to Lasgo producer Peter Luts last year he was keen on doing more solo stuff and getting his own name out there. With the success of ‘The Rain‘ and ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling‘ he has been doing just that. The former was a proper top 10 hit and the video for the latter was popping up on music channels every five minutes.

Hands Up‘ is now set to follow suit.

The name Lynn Larouge might not ring a bell for most of you, but Peter enlisted the help of an old friend for this track. You may remember her as Lien Vervoort, the former Can You Duet and Let’s Go Lasgo contestant who provided vocals on Peter’s ‘The Rain‘!

*sighs*

Oh, Jelle… Don’t ever change. Don’t ever go away. You’re my favourite recent popstar in all of Belgium.

(Don’t worry Katerine Avgoustakis, you’re still my favourite popstar who’s been around for a little longer)

Meanwhile, you can still read my recent interview with Lasgo producer Peter Luts right here on Charley says POP!

Charley says WEEK! 2010.20

May 23, 2010

 

I was originally going to post ‘Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi‘ by Celine Dion, but since this blog has already been very Eurovision-y over the last few days I ended up choosing Lolo Ferrari’s debut single ‘Airbag Generation‘. It’s questionable if she was doing any of the vocals, but that didn’t stop her from having a couple of tracks out there. ‘Dance Dance Dance‘ is up on YouTube as well, while ‘Set Me Free’ and a cover of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ should also exist. The tragic Eurotrash icon sadly passed away in 2000.

Charley says TV! Looking For Pearl

May 22, 2010

Colour me super excited.

Music station JIM has announced that a follow-up for talent show ‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ will be airing this summer!

In 2008 Lasgo producer Peter Luts set out to find a new singer for the early 00’s hit dance project. Two years, three top five hits, one top ten album and a ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ participation later, ‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ winner Jelle Van Dael is one of the hottest celebrities out there and Lasgo is bigger than ever.

In ‘Looking For Pearl’ Peter will be putting together an entirely new act, consisting of one singer and two dancers.

As far as I understand the group will be named Pearl, after main sponsor Tampax’ product line. With also The Saturdays promoting them in the UK, these must be the world’s most music friendly tampons ever.

Except for the vocals, Pearl’s first single is completely ready and good to go. It looks like it might be a proper club banger of ‘Gone‘ proportions. Even with only the instrumental finished the track got signed all over Europe and the US.

Girls between 17 and 24 can apply as of Monday the 24th on www.jim.be. Participants must be free from June 28th till July 12th for the show which will be hosted by popstar and tv host Ellektra.

I can’t wait!

Charley says VIDEO! Peter Luts ft. Lien Vervoort – The Rain

April 30, 2010

I love stuff like this. Radio station Q-Music has discovered that the singer on Peter Luts’ ‘The Rain‘ is Lien Vervoort. The name may not immediately ring a bell, but this lady has been on our radar before.

She first stepped into the spotlight as a contestant on the ill-fated talent show ‘Can You Duet‘. She didn’t manage to secure a place in the final, but a couple of months later she was already competing in her next reality show.

‘Let’s Go Lasgo’ saw producer Peter Luts looking for a girl to be the new lead singer of early 00’s hit dance group Lasgo. If I remember correctly Lien walked out of the competition in the end, because she didn’t feel like it was the kind of thing she wanted after all. Current Flemish ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ contestant Jelle Van Dael ended up beating Elke, another ‘Can You Duet’ alum, in the talent search’s final and Lasgo shot back to the top of the charts.

When the time came for Peter to release another solo single on the side he hadn’t forgotten about Lien. She may not be in the video, but Lien’s vocals are an integral of the song’s success. With ‘The Rain‘ entering the top 10 everything has finally fallen into place for everyone. Don’t you love a happy end?
