ArjanWrites Touts VV Brown & Paloma Faith as ‘new hot talent’

    Last post of the night…just a few odds and ends. First off, I’ve always loved Arjan’s blog ArjanWrites. Recently he’s been spot lighting a couple of my favorite UK acts, touting them as the next big things. This makes me happy! First up…
    VV Brown

    I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this, but apparently Arjan nominated VV for the MTV Logo Award for an international artist with “crossover potential.” I couldn’t agree more with his assessment. As I’ve said over and over and over again – this girl is going to be huge! Check out Arjan’s blog and download VV’s lastest UK single, “Shark In The Water” GUILT-FREE. According to Arjan, it’s a thank you for all of those fans that voted! I’m still hoping and praying for a U.S. release. The debut album from VV Brown, Travelling Like The Light, is released in the UK this next Monday.

    Paloma Faith

    Another artist I’m blogged about before is UK stunner/former burlesque performer Paloma Faith. I purchased a remix promo for her debut single “Stone Cold Sober,” with hot remixes from Cicada and now I’m eagerly awaiting the release of her new single “New York,” a video for which has recently been shot. Her first video was directed by the great Sophie Muller. The new video, per Paloma’s blog is being directed by Vaughan Arnell. Paloma’s debut album, Do You Want The Truth or Something Beautiful comes out in the UK on September 21st. Way too long to wait, if you ask me! Check out what Arjan has to say about the Paloma HERE.

    Upcoming Remixes:

    In other news…here are some upcoming remixes that I’m looking forward to in the coming months.

    Britney Spears

    Love you Britney. Not so much loving the
    new single though, as I’ve already mentioned. Remixed, “Radar” could grow on me.

    I do love me some Ciara remixes. “1,2 Step” got a nice re-work by FORD. I think that these Pokerface mixes could be pretty dope.

    I’ve always loved Pink. No doubt. This track is definitely one of my favorites off of Pink’s new album and hearing about these Digital Dog mixes is seriously making me salivate.

    Naturi Naughton - Fame

    I’m so excited about this new Fame movie that’s coming out. The preview made me tear up, actually. I think I really just miss performing and that’s why shows like “Glee,” (premiering on Fox in the Fall) and now “Fame” (in theaters September 25th) are making me so emotional. Naturi Naughton, formerly of the R&B group 3LW has a starring role in this film and I’m sure she’s going to go far. Check out the film’s trailer HERE to hear a bit of the song.
