SONG OF THE DAY: Circuit 21 – Calling All Angels

A Pop/Hi-NRG version of Underworld’s classic “Born Slippy” – who would have thought that could work so well? Well, “Calling All Angels” isn’t exactly a new topline over the ‘Trainspotting’ anthem, but

SONG OF THE DAY: Gala – The Beautiful

This is one of those collaborations that seem so random that it could either result in brilliance or madness. Europop legend Gala (“Freed From Desire”/”Let a Boy Cry”), whom we last heard

SONG OF THE DAY: Tony Moran ft Debby Holiday – “I Like You”

Dance covers can often slip into cliche, but when done well they can be quite special. Phyllis Nelson topped the club chart in 1985 with “I Like You,” a true club anthem

As a traveling DJ, one thing you quickly start to tune out is the flight attendant’s safety spiel when the plane takes off. “Frozen Memories” builds a deep, techy track around a

SONG OF THE DAY: Cameron James – One Step Ahead

cameron-james

I got the call last week to hit local live music joint 12th and Porter to check out a showcase from Nashville-based singer/songwriter Cameron James.  She sounds like a cross between Ellie Goulding and Plumb with chilled out EDM productions featuring intelligent lyrics and catchy pop hooks.  The mildly dissonant and stuttered intro for “One Step Ahead” caught my attention.  The dirty production contrasts with her airy sweet vocals.  This all builds to a retro-vibed synth-pop chorus that will get stuck in your head.  Hearing it on Vanderpump Rules later this month will no doubt expose her and her music to a wider audience.  Be sure to check out Cameron’s music on her Soundcloud – especially “All Out War” and “Stolen.”
  

SONG OF THE DAY: Circuit 21 – Calling All Angels

0577- Circuit 21 - Calling All Angels Single Cover

A Pop/Hi-NRG version of Underworld’s classic “Born Slippy” – who would have thought that could work so well? Well, “Calling All Angels” isn’t exactly a new topline over the ‘Trainspotting’ anthem, but the intro and breaks are clearly “inspired” by it. The lead singer from Bearforce1 follows up his cover of E.G. Daily’s “Love in the Shadows” with an original song about unrequited love over a modern Hi-NRG beat. If you are a fan of Almighty or Cahill productions, you will love this. The boxing-themed video is so well-produced that you wonder if it’s the pilot for a new TV show or movie. Circuit 21′s styling is so reminiscent of the later Army of Lovers videos that I could only imagine how incredible an Alexander Bard vs Circuit 21 collaboration would be…
