Rough edit of Nicola Roberts' video for Lucky Day

OH LOOK ! Here's what seems to be Nicola Roberts' new video for her next single Lucky Day. Or more precisely a very rough edit of it. Funny you can see the mentions "effects" where special effects will obviously be added later in the editing process. 

Apart from that the song is a total success, much more accessible than first single Beat Of My Drum but no less amazing and fresh-sounding. Hopefully she'll manage to get a proper hit out of it. What do you think ?

Amy Winehouse (1983 - 2011)

This picture and video sum up perfectly the trashy-glamourous and insanely talented being and artist that was Amy Winehouse. Her Album Back To Black (which sold 3,092 million copies in the UK alone, and probably a lot more by the end of the week) is one I've listened to so many times I feel like it's been attached to my body.

So her passing doesn't only feel like an incredible waste of talent, it leads me to wonder how her entourage could let her go this low (see the Belgrade debacle of a few weeks ago, for which her manager has a lot to answer to), even though you can't really help someone who doesn't want help. 

But let's remember the good stuff, the amazing and immortal songs, the great performances and the black diamond Amy Winehouse was and will hopefully remain in people's minds. I'm sad. 

Seems like 90% of Amy Winehouse videos are not viewable on blogs. Sorry if you are redirected to YouTube...

Metronomy get remixed by Clock Opera (free download)

My favourite track of Metronomy's latest effort The English Reviera got remixed by one of my favorite DJs/Producers/Remixers around, Clock Opera. Their treatment of The Bay is laid back yet perfect to dance to lasciviously around the pool. Provided where you live is currently experiencing Summer, unlike Paris at the moment...

Having seen the band live twice over the past three weeks (at Belfort's Eurockéennes and London's Lovebox festivals), I can say I'm totally reconciled with them. Their set is the right mix of bouncy and laid-back sexy. I loved it way more than the actual record, which I thought was a bit of a snoozefest. 

Stream and download the track for free below and watch the video for the originial!

Jali : full band à Paris

Jali était le 7 juillet dernier à Paris pour son premier concert dans la capitale. C'était l'occasion pour lui d'inaugurer la formation "full band" et de faire découvrir à un public d'invités (amis, pros...) la majorité des titres de son premier album à paraître en octobre prochain. 

L'occasion pour la fine équipe bruxelloise de se retrouver et de se remémorer cet inoubliable weekend. Vite rejoints par un Jali visiblement ravi du concert tout juste terminé, nous avons pu échanger avec lui sur le chemin parcouru depuis notre première rencontre, des passages en radio de L'española au tournage apparemment épique du clip.

La machine Jali est lancée, et ne s'arrêtera pas de sitôt !
