Monsieur Adi's Remix of Reni Lane "Place For Us" Inspires Fashion Collection
This is a little mind blowing and totally amazing! Leo, a young designer from New Zealand, was so inspired by Monsieur Adi's magnificent remix of Reni Lane's "Place For Us" that he designed an entire fashion collection based on it. Epic meets elegance. The designer's Monsieur Aid-Reni Lane collection comes with a line of accessories as well, including "Place For Us" handbags (A Reni bag and an Adi bag). How incredible is that? I introduced Monsieur Adi to Reni Lane last year and I'm so glad I did. It's proof once again that music and the reach of social media can create beautiful things.
Video Premiere: Reni Lane "Place For Us" (+ Free Brad Walsh MP3 Remix)
Finally! Superfraiche alum Reni Lane has her "Ray Of Light" moment in this very cool video for her debut single, "Place For Us." Frequent readers of this blog know that I have been raving about this track and posted several remixes after it first hit last summer. I just love the spirit of the song. It is a freedom anthem, it is a song about coming into your own and staying there. Totally love how the video captures that energy and meaning of the song.
The video was produced by the German production team Philipp Fehling, Jan Scholz, Frank Hoffmann in cooperation with"Mutter und Vater Filmproduktion and Das Werk Berlin who previously created a video for the Glitter & Blitz remix of "Place For Us."
Fellow Superfraiche performer Brad Walsh recently remixed the track as well and gave it a nice electro twist. Download that revamp totally guilt-free. Look out for Reni's debut album "Ready" to hit digital download stores next week. In the meantime, do yourself one, mighty favor and download the radio edit right here, right now.

V V is set to release her debut “Traveling Like The Light” on February 9.
Reni Lane - Signed by super producer Linda Perry to her Custard / Universal Motown label, this spunky and super fun singer is stirring up crowds with her debut single “Place For Us,” an infectious slice of alt pop rock.

The goodness just continues to roll in.
Reni Lane was an amazing performer at Superfraiche. Love that woman! She has so much spunk, energy and such a refreshing attitude that we need much more of. During the performance of "Place For Us" she jumped off the stage and ran through the crowd with her wireless mic. Totally crazy, but totally fun.
I know I'm gushing but her stage presence is infectious and her vocal delivery is flawless. Make sure to grab a copy of her Custard/Universal-Motown debut LP early next year.
