SONG OF THE DAY: Jin Jin – “Fire Me Up”

Following up the playful and insanely catchy pop ditty “Whistle at Me,” the colorfully exuberant Jin Jin returns with “Fire Me Up.” Aimed directly at the clubs, the track is a modern mash of two beloved ’90s styles – two-step garage and speed garage, with a taste of electro to make it fresh for 2013.  Imagine Wynter Gordon as produced by Artful Dodger for a frame of reference The results are energetic and playful, yet tough enough to go off massively in a big room. The delightfully low budget video is quite sharp, and makes a great introduction to Jin Jin as she and her friends have an impromptu party at a random loft. It’s the kind of house party worthy of an escape.  While your clicking around, be sure to check out her unique take of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”

SONG OF THE DAY: Dream Beats ft The Face – “Love Stuck”

This is like the pop song that was created by taking cherubs, disco balls, unicorns, good vibrations, and some spice and blending it into a hot frothy mess.  “Love Stuck” comes on strong and goes down smooth, unassuming yet undeniable in the way that all good pop music should be.  And having been co-penned by fave Wynter Gordon, it’s hard not to love it.  For those unfamiliar with European pop groups, the people who contributed to this song (Dream Beats and The Face) pretty much equate to pop royalty.  We won’t do ALL of your research for you, but suffice to say that no matter how lo-fi (and incredibly unexpected) the video is, this is a calculated pop effort that should be rewarded for being oh-so-deliciously-awesome.
