Charley says VIDEO! Eva Simons – Renegade

June 16, 2012

By now you’re surely familiar with Dutch pop promise Eva Simons (and if you’re not, there’s always this post I made some time ago to bring you up to date!) Since we last saw her, the mohawked singer has teamed up with Will.I.Am, toured with LMFAO and is preparing to join Eric Prydz, Nero and the likes for their Identity Tour.

Even more importantly though, this week we’re one step closer to that long awaited debut album! Eva has unleashed her brand new video “Renegade“, which frankly features some of the worst road safety in pop. Eyes on the road, Eva! Hands on the wheel! No standing on the motorbike!

The song however is top notch. Eva sings “Success is being who you are… and you only… Me, I’m a renegade” over dubstep pop done right. Yes, after taking on the dance scene with the likes of Afrojack and Zedd by her side, Eva is now coming for Katy B’s crown!

“Renegade” by Eva Simons is available soon.

Move over, Jasper Erkens and Freaky Age. Here’s Breathe The Sound! Above is lead singer Simon Nuytten. Below is their song ‘Dance‘. Over here is a live cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Man In The Mirror‘. And this is the band’s MySpace profile. This isn’t usually my kind of music, but I find myself liking this quite a bit.

Charley says LIST! 3 Unlikely Yet Rather Amazing Samples

May 15, 2010

1. Song: Lumidee – Insomnia
Sample: Faithless – Insomnia
About: The Queen of Spanish Harlem is back! Over the past few years Lumidee has been making sure that’s she’s not going to be the ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)‘ girl for the rest of her life. I’m particularly fond of her Speedy collaboration ‘Sientelo‘. (“Classy, but sexy without no tongue ring […] Straight from the gutter, but I shine like a pearl”) With a cheeky “They say God is a DJ” added, this new song is the best use of ‘Insomnia’ since the 2003 TMF Awards opening performance.

2. Song: The Crybabies – Wherever I Go
Sample: Zombie Nation – Kernkraft 400
About: Looks like someone Eva Simons’ed Eva Simons herself! The former ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ winner shot to international fame when ‘Silly Boy‘ was leaked as a Lady Gaga and Rihanna demo. ‘Wherever I Go‘ just hit the web as Eva’s alleged new single. However, a little digging revealed that it’s actually The Crybabies who get to take credit for it!

3. Song: Auburn – La La La
Sample: ATC – Around The World (La La La La La)
About: Auburn, formerly known as Gabby G, is already being dubbed the Princess of Beluga Heights. J.R. Rotem seems to be on a roll when it comes to sampling. After Jason Derülo’s Imogen Heap-sampling ‘Whatcha Say‘ he turned the cheesy (yet nonetheless amazing) ‘Around The World (La La La La La)‘ by German pop group ATC into a proper R&B tune.

Charley says SONG! Robert Ramirez – Sick Of Love

May 9, 2010

So I found myself in the Spanish iTunes store, as one does, and I was intrigued by their number one, ‘Sick Of Love‘ by Robert Ramirez.

There seems to be barely any information about it online though. Here’s what I managed to find out.

1) It is quite good.
2) It has pretty cover art.
3) It could do with a radio edit.
4) It’s the theme song to Spanish comedy show ‘El Club Del Chiste‘.

And last, but certainly not least

5) I dare anyone to find a bigger ‘I Gotta Feeling‘ rip-off than this.
