Ballroom Remixed: New Album out May 24th, featuring Simon Curtis, Elouise, Lucas Prata, Linda Teodosiu and More!


One of my favorite reality TV series is So You Think You Can Dance. If you too are a fan of the show (at least the U.S. and Canadian versions) you'll recognize Melanie LaPatin from her work as a choreographer, putting together slick and sexy routines for the show's contestants week after week. As a dancer and choreographer, you have to find inspiration in all kinds of music and So You Think You Can Dance is ALL ABOUT spotlighting artists based on their sound, not their popularity or airplay on the radio (although a lot of popular artists/songs do make it onto the show). Melanie LaPatin Presents Ballroom Remixed is a 22-track compilation album of songs "intended for and/or were inspired by the world of ballroom dance." Created under the guidance of LaPatin, this epic playlist was put together by British producers Ricardo Autobahn and Richard Hymas. Autobahn and Hymas called upon American songwriter Charlie Mason to handle lyrics and Welsh graphic artist Liam Curry to help put the finishing touches together. Looks like the boys did LaPatin proud:
"I told the guys I needed some ballroom music,” Melanie recalls. “Something new, something fresh, something different. And, because they're total freaks, they gave me exactly what I asked for, then twisted and bent it, melted it down, reshaped and froze it, then served it to me on a silver platter — with a spork. I must learn to be more careful what I wish for!"
Melanie LaPatin Presents Ballroom Remixed will be released on May 24th and features contributions from a bevvy of talented artists from all over the world, including the stunningly beautiful UK talent Elouise, talented pop duo Tammy Jay and Kally (of Electrovamp), electropop up & comer Simon Curtis, promising newcomer Kyle Brylin, German popstar and Deutschland sucht den Superstar finalist Linda Teodosiu, DJ/House Singer Lucas Prata, incredibly sexy singer/personal trainer Lee Latchford Evans (of Steps) and much more! Check out the full tracklisting below the cut and check out the official website HERE for more information on the artists, songwriters, contributors and about Melanie LaPatin herself. Check out the album when it's released on iTunes May 24th by NinthWave Records (home to Music Is My King Size Bed favorite Van Go Lion) and get ready to dance!

In the mean time, why don't you scope out this little album teaser featuring song snippets and additional info.  The new season of So You Think You Can Dance premieres May 26th on Fox.
