David Latour ft. Kat DeLuna & Fo Onassis – Had A Dream (Producelast)

May 4, 2012

It’s no secret that I have a major soft spot for Kat DeLuna. The American popstar with Dominican roots has banged out some brilliant anthems in her time and is the kind of artist to keep working her ass off whatever setbacks may arise. She was also one of the first artists I ever interviewed for Charley says POP!

Had A Dream” has her team up with Belgian DJ and producer David Latour. David has done remixes for the likes of About E and his tracks with Narco and Sylver’s Sil have been mentioned on this blog earlier.

Having featured on songs with Jean-Roch and Nicola Fasano, Kat has dabbled in dance music before. However, “Had A Dream” takes it to another level and is without a doubt her most exciting dance track so far.

The song, which also features Fo Onassis, is based around the Belgian jump influenced trance classic “Producelast” by Trancescape. The sample gives “Had A Dream” a harder edge than Kat’s ever had before and should go down a storm in the club. So get yourself to a YouTube jumpstyle tutorial and start practicing your moves to this new banger!

“Had A Dream (Producelast)” by David Latour ft. Kat DeLuna & Fo Onassis is available soon.

Charley says LIST! Meanwhile In Belgian Dance Music – Update

March 14, 2012

Just a couple of days ago I brought you up to speed on everything that’s happening on the Belgian dance scene and already there’s new things for me to report on! So without further ado, an update!

When we last spoke only a preview of Jessy’s 2012 remake of her classic “Innocence” had been online. Now, I can present you the diva’s shiny new video for “Innocence ’12“! Having heard the full thing now, we can assure you that producer Regi has found a way to make Abie Flinstone‘s rap blend in seemlessly with all the things you loved about the original song. And yes, the epic “it feels so good… come on and take me” bit is still there!

Oh, and be sure to compare my earlier write-up of the song with the YouTube description for the “Innocence ’12” video! Someone at Jessy’s label Mostiko must be reading Charley says POP!

There may not be a video for her group Sylver’s new single “City Of Angels” yet, but Silvy De Bie has shot scenes for her latest solo song. The result of that is now on YouTube! Newly redhead Silvy looks gorgeous in the video for “Without You” which is credited to David Latour ft. Sil!

Lastly, here’s one I missed out on in my previous post. You may recognise Elisa Guarraci from her time on Topmodel, her 2008 Eurovision effort or her audition for The Voice Van Vlaanderen. These days though she’s mainly busy with her girlgroup Fourlicious, who are promoting “Over You” and are said to be working with former Lasgo co-producer Dave McCullen on new material.

In between all of that she’s found the time to record “In My Arms“. The song marks the Belgian/Italian singer’s second collaboration with producer Philip D. Earlier the two worked together on the breezy “When Love Takes Over” soundalike “The Last Goodbye“.

So there you go, until further notice, consider yourself updated on the main new releases in Belgian dance music!

“The Ultimate Jessy: Best Of 1995 – 2012″ by Jessy is available on iTunes and Spotify.
“Innocence ’12″ by Jessy ft. Abie Flinstone is available on iTunes.
“Without You” by David Latour ft. Sil is available on iTunes.
“In My Arms” by Philip D ft. Elisa is available soon.

Charley says ARTIST! Kate Ryan’s Mystery Guest Vocal

July 23, 2011

Kate Ryan celebrated her birthday by treating her fans to an exclusive snippet of a brand new track.

Despite the more pop oriented direction of Kate’s upcoming ‘Electroshock’ album, ‘Broken‘ takes the Belgian diva back to her full-on dance roots. Joining her on the track is a mystery male whose identity is the source of much speculation.

Charley says POP!’s official guess? Narco!

The name might not sound familiar, but a couple of months ago I introduced you to ‘Venus vs. Mars‘. Narco provides vocals on this David Latour and Hi-Mode produced track from upcoming dance label La Musique Du Beau Monde. The single shot to number 16 in the charts, getting the attention of many international labels and… a certain singer by the name of Kate Ryan.

Yes, when ‘Venus vs. Mars‘ first started making waves Kate posted the video on her Facebook account, expressing an interest in working with the musical trio. Did they take her up on her offer? It would certainly explain Kate’s return to dance and that vocal does sound rather similar, no?

Update: As Kate Ryan herself said in the comments, my research turned out to be spot on! Narco of ‘Venus vs. Mars‘ fame is featuring on Kate Ryan’s new single ‘Broken‘!
