AFROJACK FT EVA SIMONS
Take Over Control
Afrojack is the Dutch music star that’s taking over the world’s dancefloors. His single, ‘Take Over Control’ is currently one of the hottest club anthems on the planet, not least in the UK where it’s playlisted at Radio 1 and championed by Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Mistajam, plus Kiss, Galaxy and 1xtra’s specialists. He’s also produced for the likes of Estelle, David Guetta, Madonna and the upcoming Black Eyed Peas single. This is definitely one to catch.
Hot new R&B artist Siow has been on a whirlwind journey which led him to the completion of his first studio single, ‘We Were’, and his album, ‘Another Day’. As well as working with John Altman, Siow’s brand new album also features a contemporary cover of the Billy Joel classic ‘Honesty’. The Australian born artists is ready to burst onto the British R&B scene with his unique blend of beats with real, raw instrumentals. With ‘We Were’ already a number one hit in Australia, it’s only a matter of time before he does the same here.
Weight of My Mistakes
I’ll be the first person to admit to being a fan of Seal. ‘Kiss From a Prayer’ was one of my favourite songs of all time. Seal yearns to get back to that soulful, balladic sound with his newest single, ‘Weight of My Mistakes’, but like Sting and Tamsin Archer, and just about every other ageing 80s/90s pop act, the new stuff never packs as much of a punch as it should do. Sorry Seal, but this isn’t your best. Skip it.
Feels Like I’m Still in Love
This is an uplifting pop/rock song inspired by a moment of doubt in a relationship. There’s a shine and vibrancy to this band that gives their music a nice, round newness that will appeal to indie fans and emo kids the world over. With mentoring and production coming from Youth, you can rest assured that this track bangs and bounces and thrills in all the right places.
