Sugababes - Get Sexy Remixes

I wish I had more connections! I know DJs get special promotional CDs in the mail from the record labels and other such company's but MAN. I want in! I buy the promos on Ebay, but those can get quite expensive quite fast. I know a lot of blogs post the remixes for free download, but if I can buy them and they aren't $80.00...I'd rather do that. I guess I'm off to an OK start (part of that "special blogging opportunity" I mentioned before).

One promo that I'm especially antsy for is the new Sugababes single, "Get Sexy," which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. It's a HOT song! I saw a notice over on Euro Solution for an advanced promo of the track...and while the track listing isn't THAT impressive (in the number of remixes)'s a start.

Looks like we can expect remixes from Superbass and Bitrocka...both of whom I'm familiar with. Most recently Bitrocka remixed the new Freemasons/Sophie Ellis-Bextor track and Superbass did one of the last Will Young singles. Check out the track listing below and let me know who YOU would like to hear remix the new Sugababes single!

Fefe Dobson Song Chosen as Reality Show Theme

Fefe DobsonFefe Dobson I Want You
I was excited to read that Fefe Dobson's new single ("I Want You") has been chosen as the theme for a VH1 Reality Show. I've loved this girl since her first album came out...or a couple of months after it came out anyway. I don't quite remember which song first got me hooked on Fefe Dobson - perhaps it was her third single, "Everything," or perhaps it was her debut U.S. single "Take Me Away." By the time her fourth single came out - I was sold. Granted, "Don't Go (Girls and Boys)" was completely different than her other singles in that it was more top-40 friendly. Up-tempo and poppy. I loved her other songs as well, but they weren't as much fun.

Fefe Dobson Sunday Love

After her self titled album came out in 2003/2004, Fefe seemingly dropped off the map. She resurfaced during the writing/recording of her follow up album, Sunday Love, blogging on MySpace...however after a couple of release date shifts, the album was ultimately shelved. So annoying. I personally was hoping for something more along the lines of "Don't Go," but of course the two new singles were not up-tempo pop jams. I liked "Don't Let It Go To Your Head," and "This Is My Life" but I think they were poor single choices. Since I have yet to listen to the album, I don't know if there were any other single-worthy tracks on there...I guess I'll never know.

Fefe DobsonFefe Dobson

With a new album, Joy, set to come out in September, Dobson is back on MySpace and now Twitter. Dobson's newish "Watch Me Move" was featured in promos for NBC's now cancelled show Lipstick Jungle, and according to her blog - her newest song "I Want You" has been selected as the theme for a new VH1 show called "Megan Wants A Millionaire", which premieres on August 2nd. This is all very positive. I'm wishing her the best. Hopefully this new album makes it onto store shelves! I'm eagerly anticipating a new full length LP from this sassy/classy girl. Oh...and listen for a Jordin Sparks cover of "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" on Jordin's forth coming album on July 21st. It's not half bad!

Amy Studt is Coming to America

Well, I guess Amy Studt enjoyed her time in New York City. According to her blog, Amy is moving to the states in just a couple of weeks. She doesn't really share many details as to why she's coming out here, only saying that she wants to "to experience a new life for a bit." I wish her nothing but the best. The girl is a talented singer/songwriter who deserves a spot of success after parting ways with her label this past Spring.

The big move isn't really a shock, as she blogged about how great a time she had in the States. She apparently has been doing a bit of writing and recording in her London flat, and hopes to have something up on her MySpace page when it's ready.

In her last update, Amy said: "I have some meetings coming about and some potential management offers so we will seeā€¦..not sure what I want to do yet. But I definitely want to do a course in New York, maybe a creative writing course or an acting course." She also expressed interest in meeting with writer/producer Jon Brion (Aimee Mann, Keane, Dido), gushing "I love his work with Fiona Apple and also the soundtrack to eternal sunshine of the spotless mind."

Whatever brings Amy to the U.S., I hope she plays a few gigs on the East Coast. I'd love to see her live!

Dido Revisits Her "Electronic Roots" with Upcoming 4th Album

In a recent Q&A on her official page, British singer Dido reveals that her upcoming fourth album will see a return to her electronic roots. When asked why her last album, Safe Trip Home, was such a departure, sonically-speaking, from her previous two albums, Dido had this to say:

"I intentionally didn't use any electronics on the 3rd album...We had a lot of fun creating sounds from all manner of instruments. This was instead of using anything pre-programmed. It was a great learning experience for me and also made me a much better musician pretty quickly! It's also making me really appreciate the joy of electronics again on this new album I'm making. It's good to take a break and now I'm celebrating my electronic roots again."

This makes me happy. I own and practically played out my copy of No Angel, and its follow up, Life For Rent isn't too bad (though it reminds me of working retail, as many of her songs played in our store). Safe Trip Home is the only Dido album I don't own. It just wasn't my cup of tea I suppose...and there were practically no remixes off that album, save for one Dennis Ferrer remix of "Don't Believe In Love." No...not everything requires a remix, but in the case of Dido...her light-as-air vocals just lend themselves to a club beat. What do you all think of Dido? Anyone buy Safe Trip Home? Perhaps I'm missing out.

New Kim Sozzi Album - Out July 21st

So in an interesting turn of events...I was recently contacted about a really interesting blogging opportunity. I'll share some more details with you soon. I'm really excited! My blog is definitely picking up steam and now I'm really motivated. There was a time when I wasn't sure if I'd come back to it.

Kim Sozzi
In other news, one of my favorite dance singers, Kim Sozzi has a new album coming out next week! I've been a fan of Kim Sozzi ever since I first heard her dance jam "Feelin' Me," remixed brilliantly by Hex Hector. In the course of trying to figure out who this girl with the fantastic voice was, I learned that she had songs on both the "Dawson's Creek" soundtrack as well as the soundtrack to "Teaching Mrs. Tingle" (starring Katie Holmes).

Sozzi's soundtrack contributions definitely fell into the pop genre, but it wasn't until she broke out as a dance singer that I really started "feeling her."While Kim's debut album Life Goes On never did see the light of day - she's been hard at work since then, churning out the dance hits. "Feelin' Me" hit #4 on the 2001 Billboard dance charts. After a brief stint in Europe (going by the name Kim Styles), Kim returned to the U.S. and joined forces with the New York-based MYNT. Singing on songs like "How Did You Know," "Stay," and "Back In Love" Kim solidified her place in my dance-music loving mind. After the MYNT album was released, she left the group...actually, to my knowledge, MYNT itself has since disbanded.

Kim Sozzi - Feel Your LoveKim Sozzi - Break UpKim Sozzi - Like A Star
Sozzi is now signed to Ultra Records and is set to release her album, Just One Day on July 21st. The album is available as a digital download now on iTunes & Masterbeat, but if you want the physical CD - it's out on Tuesday. Included on this album are some of her recent dance hits "Like A Star," "Break Up," "Alone" and her new hit single "Feel Your Love." Check out this album preview on YouTube.
