[MP3] Zander Bleck "Nights In White Satin" (Hype Jones Remix)
It sure takes a dose of musical courage to take on one of the biggest rock ballads of all time. But Zander Bleck doesn't shy away from a challenge and was eager to cover The Moody Blues' evergreen "Nights In White Satin" on a rainy night after a long recording session in the studio.
People were instantly captivated when they saw the footage of the charismatic New York pop rocker perform this timeless tune that neatly showed off his larger than life vocals, which perfectly set the tone for his own music.
In a pop world dominated by hip hop and dance, Zander Bleck takes his inspiration from classic rock to serve up a fresh new sound. The singer's forthcoming debut single "Temptation" clearly demonstrates his rock edge while also incorporating a pop-savvy, ready-radio melody and his emotive delivery that will have a mass appeal.
Bleck's knack for melody should come as no surprise. His tightly produced brand of pop is courtesy of none other than GRAMMY winning songwriter and producer Red One. As most of you pop fans know, Red One has been a driving force behind the careers of people like Lady Gaga and Kat DeLuna, and more recently he has been penning hits for Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez and Usher.
You can preview Bleck's debut tune "Temptation" on his web site now. In the meantime, check out an exclusive remix of Hype Jones' remix of Zander's "Nights In White Satin" to keep your iPod buzzing until more Bleck music will be released. Follow Zander Black on Twitter and Like him on Facebook.
Ready to Pop: Porcelain Black "This Is What Rock 'N Roll Looks Like"
Are you "ready to rage"?
Brace yourself. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Detroit singer Porcelain Black is about to unleash her ferocious brand of pop upon the masses and she surely will be shattering a few conventions in the process. Her major label debut single, the aptly-titled This Is What Rock 'N Roll Looks Like, is finally being released today and it will give people a good taste of what this emerging new pop sensation is all about.
The single was produced by none other than GRAMMY-winning super producer Red One. After writing and producing global mega hits for people like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias and Kat DeLuna, Red One is about to deliver some of his finest work yet. For the past 18 months, Red One has helped develop a few brand-new artists from the ground up who support him in his effort to write a new chapter in pop.
Last week, I introduced you to charismatic New York pop rocker Zander Bleck who has been on the road with Red One while he was in Europe touring along with Lady Gaga to work on her new album. Bleck brings a passion and poise to Red One's universal pop sound that make him a bright new talent to keep your eye.
Red One has also been working with spunky Detroit rock singer Porcelain Black (of Porcelain & The Tramps fame) to create a bold new pop sound that will challenge what people have come to expect from Red One. The producer is a rocker at heart and Porcelain Black's new single gives us a glimpse of that.
The potent "This Is What Rock 'N Roll Looks Like" is a rambunctious slice of pop rock that perfectly fits Porcelain's audacious personality featuring her gritty vocals that neatly balance Red One's slick and infectious production stylings. Dynamite stuff. (Support new pop and download "This Is What Rock 'N Roll Looks Like" on Amazon.com.)
