Hot New Release: Kylie Live In New York

Kylie MinogueWoohoo! The day is finally (almost) here. Released in Europe today (December 14th), tomorrow sees the U.S. release of Kylie Live In New York.

Recorded live from NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom on October 13th on the last day of her first ever North American Tour, (Just 6 days after I saw her live in Chicago), fans of the pint-sized electro-pop diva can relive the live spectacle by downloading the experience onto their iPods.

Kylie MinogueThe critically acclaimed tour was a sold out smash that saw Kylie visit 6 cities in the U.S. and Canada. Singing songs spanning her entire career, Kylie put on a show worthy of her 20 years in the business and then some! "The concert was efficient, clobbering, expensive, generous...close to an alternate reality," said the New York Times. Entertainment Weekly went on to say that Kylie's show was "a two-hour post-disco fantasia of strobe, bass, and glitter-an-all-out spectacle worthy of her American fans' pent-up adoration."

Kylie MinogueHalf of the digital album was available for a 24-hour preview starting at midnight on December 12th on Kylie's YouTube channel. The full 28-track digital album will be available on iTunes on Tuesday. iTunes customers receive 3 bonus tracks, the tour versions of "Light Years," "Speakerphone," and "Come Into My World" recorded and remixed exclusively by Steve Anderson.

Kylie MinogueAbout the tour, Kylie herself had this to say, "I've always wanted to tour in America and couldn't believe it was actually was worth the 20 years, the shows were absolutely amazing. The fans in North America had such an amazing energy." Thanks Kylie. You brought it all out in us. A true talent. Come back soon!

Hot New Release: Ryan Ferrada - Room 501

I first heard of Ryan Ferrada back in September, when I talked about his upcoming release Room 501. The Bimbo Jones remix of his first single, the club-friendly "Dirty In The Club" hit the top 10 in the Music Week UK Club Chart last month and even hit #2 on the Pop Chart. Impressive! Well, the album has FINALLY been released to the UK iTunes store. I wish I could get it here in the states.

Ryan FerradaThe half American, half Spanish Ferrada grew up in Europe, releasing his debut album, Can't Let Go in Portugal and Span when he was only 18. After touring Europe in support of artists like Ronan Keating and the Sugababes, Ryan is ready for some spotlight of his own. Room 501 sees Ferrada paired up with songwriter/producer Greg Fitzgerald (Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Jessica Simpson) and features the perfect blend of "edgy pop, electro funk, dance and hints of R&B."

Ryan FerradaAmong the albums tracks is a cover of Kylie Minogue's "Burning Up," as well as next single, the title track, "Room 501." I for one can't wait to hear the new material. With the electro-pop world currently dominated by strong female superstars like Lady Gaga and Ke$ha, the hot, sexy Ferrada is destined to make a splash.

Pairing up with footwear maker KangaROOS back in August, The Dolly Rockers launched a dance competition and style makeover.
