Charley says VIDEO! – Kate Ryan – Robots

May 14, 2012

Kate Ryan is one third of Charley says POP!’s Holy Trinity. Alongside Hadise and Katerine Avgoustakis she is, to me, one of the best popstars Belgium has given the world. So naturally seeing Kate release a brand new music video is a PRETTY BIG DEAL.

And boy, does she deliver! Kate is honestly looking in-cre-di-ble. She’s been mostly pants-less throughout this campaign (just check her last two videos) but for ‘Robots‘ she ups the sexy even more. There’s a very flattering futuristic/space/robot corset! There’s a skintight catsuit! There’s an awesome looking headgear thingy! And I’ll try to contain my not-so-secret inner fanboy before I start complementing hair and make-up as well.

Even more importantly, it’s a bit of a brilliant pop tune, isn’t it? The track has been written by Paul Drew, Greig Watts and Pete Barringer, who have previously been responsible for Kate’s ‘LoveLife‘ and Katerine Avgoustakis’ 2006 Eurosong entry. ‘Robots‘ has Kate sounding more pop than ever before, like how it might sound if Daze were to sample ‘Living On Video‘ by Trans-X in the year 3000.

Bring on that album!

‘Robots’ by Kate Ryan and its Extended Radio Edit, Shutterz Remix, Chris Feelding Remix and William Burstedt Remix is available on SpotifySoundcloud and iTunes.

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 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‘!

Charley says VIDEO! David Latour, Hi-Mode & Narco – Venus vs. Mars

April 15, 2011

DJ David Latour has teamed up with Hi-Mode, formerly of Les Mecs, and together with Narco they’ve released ‘Venus vs. Mars‘.

This club track sounds like the Belgian equivalent to Swedish House Mafia and is not only starting to make an impact in here, the rest of the world is taking notice as well. The song got signed to Spinnin’ Records in The Netherlands and is gaining momentum in Denmark.

Even Kate Ryan is a fan! She posted the video on her official Facebook page and expressed an interest in working with the trio.

After Laurent Wery’s ‘Hey Hey Hey‘, this is upcoming dance label La Musique Du Beau Monde’s second release to go international.

LMDBM were also the people behind Glamm, the dance/pop duo I told you about a year ago, and Jessy’s Michael Beltran collaboration ‘Can’t Get Enough‘.
