Shockolady feat. Timofey – Hello

Written by Michael

What happens when you throw producers Dimitri Tikovoi (Velvet Underground, Placebo, Goldfrapp, The Saturdays), Area Star Production (aka Andre Rudenko & Timofey Reznikov (Akon, Katy Perry, Fergie, Pitbull)), and a British songstress in together to create a song?

Well, apparently, this. “Hello” is a pop song…but like so many in recent years, it’s heavily influenced by dance music and there’s plenty of synths and heavy bass beats. The lyrics are, frankly, terrible with gems such as “Ii got inside your room and it was snowing there i got inside your soul and there was rain”. Er, right.

But then maybe that’s missing the point. It’s a song about nothing, but then most pop songs are, and even Adele is guilty of waxing nonsensical lyrical (set fire to rain..). The production is also of a very high quality, and the tune is catchy, and certainly wouldn’t sound out of place on the radio. It’s also helped by an expertly assembled video.

Shockolady herself has a style that’s clearly heavily influenced by Lady Gaga, which is a problem because, well it’s already been done. But she does have a decent enough voice, hitting high and low notes with equal conviction.

“Hello” will not quite a star make her, but with some work on giving her a slightly more unique style, and a equally catchy song just with more meaningful lyrics (hopefully she can retain the same producers, a name change wouldn’t go amiss either) and perhaps this British pop act can achieve some significant success. We certainly wish her the best!

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
