Bring On The Remixes: Dionne Bromfield & Matthew Morrison Get Dance Floor Makeovers
You all know I love a good remix and when it comes to pop remixes, the UK knows where it's at! 15 year old UK singer Dionne Bromfield is getting her club on with remixes for her new single, "Foolin'," lifted off her forthcoming sophomore album, Good For The Soul (Lioness/Island). Bromfield, who just so happens to be Amy Winehouse's God Daughter, released her debut album of Motown covers back in 2009 where it managed to peak at #33 on the UK Albums chart. Due out June 27th, Good For The Soul features new music (not covers), including first single "Yeah Right," featuring American rapper Diggy Simmons which was a Top 40 hit for Bromfield on the UK Singles Chart.
No stranger to remixes, Bromfield's debut single "Mama Said" was remixed by Vito Benito, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" got the Desert Eagles remix treatment, while "Yeah Right" saw remixes from SoundBwoy, Club Junkies, and Mario Basanov. New single, "Foolin'" featuring Lil Twist takes things up a notch, getting re-fixed by the fabulous Seamus Haji (Dannii Minogue, Sugababes, Rihanna, Mariah Carey) and equally fantastic Bellatrax (Annie Lennox, CockNBullKid, Kylie Minogue, Tina Cousins, Sophia May). Check out the amazing Bellatrax remix BELOW. Bromfield's "Foolin'" is due out June 26th, the same date as her sophomore album so get ready!
Next up we have Glee actor and pop singer, Matthew Morrison. While I find his solo material to be super super cheesy, much like his Glee tunes, I was secretly hoping for some fabulous remixes for Morrison's debut UK single release, "Summer Rain." The single didn't really have much of an impact on the charts when it was released here in America back in March but it looks like they're trying for a club chart smash over across the pond. Remixed by Almighty, Morrison's sleepy, summery pop tune gets worked over for the dance clubs in a big way. Check out the radio edit below and tell me what you think. Morrison's debut self titled album is due out May 10th in America and May 29th in the UK. U.S. fans can download "Summer Rain" on iTunes HERE as well as his latest single, "Still Got Tonight" HERE.
