Balancing University and Music Career, Luigi Masi Ready For Pop Comeback
Luigi Masi first hit the UK airwaves back in 2008 with the Jim Beanz-produced "Strobelight," which went on to become Masi's first top 10 UK club hit, backed by a top notch remix package that included mixes by Wideboys, Agent X, and Samson. His second single, the Cutfather and Jonas Jeberg-produced "Armed With Love" went on to become Masi's second top UK club hit, with remixes by Future Freakz and Stamp Crew. Masi dropped his 12-track debut album, Save His Shoes (Bunx Records) in the summer of 2009, featuring production and songwriting collaborations from Raine Maida, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jim Beanz, Cutfather, Jonas Jeberg, Quiz and Larossi, Anton Malmberg, Elias Kapari and Eric Sanicola. In December of 2009, Masi released On Your Radar, a 4-track EP that included his next single and soon-to-be third top 10 UK club hit, "Radar."
In June of 2010, Masi announced via his official site that he was putting his music career on hold so that he could go to school, saying that if everything went according to plan, we'd be hearing from him the following summer. Well, nearly a year later, Masi announced his planned return to pop music, making good on his promise. I have mad respect for Luigi for shelving his music career in favor of education. I also respect the fact that he's willing to work his ass off during the summer months in order to give his fans what they want to hear! It's going to be a busy summer, but surely a exciting and gratifying one. Download "Pick Up Line" on U.S. iTunes HERE.
