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 VIDEO! Sylver – Turn The Tide 2010

June 9, 2010

Here are ten points of interest on the new Sylver video.
1) It’s for a 2010 version of their breakthrough hit ‘Turn The Tide‘.
2) It looks very nice.
3) It was shot at Strantwerpen, a city beach club which is put up in the middle of Antwerp for the summer.
4) Silvy’s hair is amazing.
5) I want everyone’s sunglasses.
6) This must be one of the first, if not the first, Flemish music video to blatantly have product placement.
7) I spot at least two Belgian finalists of So You Think You Can Dance 2009.
8 ) One of them is Michael Iongbloed, who came third. He’s the guy with the open shirt about 48 seconds into the video.
9) The other one is Kris Loix, who got voted off just before the final. He is the one drinking around the 2 minutes 52 mark. You may have also seen him as one of the dancers for Sandrine’s 2008 Eurosong entry.
10) Is it just me or does anyone else feel like having a bottle of Perrier?

Charley says INTERVIEW! Peter Luts

June 1, 2010

The other day I told you about Looking For Pearl, a brand new talent show on Flemish music channel JIM. Similar to 2008’s Let’s Go Lasgo, they will be looking for Belgium’s next big dance singer. However, this time round the search will be on for two dancers as well. Looking For Pearl will be fronted by Lasgo producer Peter Luts, who already has Pearl’s first hit signed internationally and ready to go.

I talked to Peter to find out exactly what he is hoping to find. After the jump you’ll find the full interview, where we also talked about working with former Let’s Go Lasgo finalists, his solo stuff and the upcoming brand new albums for Lasgo and AnnaGrace.
