After taking "Hello" to the top of the pop charts across Europe, French DJ/producer Martin Solveig is now gearing up to repeat that success with his new single "Ready 2 Go" that features the vocals of Bloc Party's Kele.
The commercial success of "Hello" has not only increased the profile of Solveig overseas, it also has introduced Dragonette's Martina Sorbora to a massive new audience who are now getting a taste of what Dragonette's pop goodness is all about.
After releasing fantastic music and touring across the globe (including my Atlanta SUPERFRAICHE last year), the Canadian pop outfit is finally getting the mainstream attention it deserves. Europe got into it first and with "Hello" hitting rotation on pop radio in New York and Los Angeles, the U.S. will soon follow.
For "Ready 2 Go," Solveig presents once again one of his hilarious mini films that not only features the relationship with his quirky manager, but also brings back Martina for some knitting action. Part of this episode of Smash was filmed two weeks ago at Paris' Stade de France in front of 81,000 people. Watch the video after the break. Super fun!
So what should we expect from Solveig's album? The effort will include "Can't Stop," another dance pop collaboration between Solveig and Dragonette. Yes! Solveig has also recorded a track called "Turn Up The Radio" with Sunday Girl. They will be appearing together at Creamfields in Australia. Stay tuned for more details soon.
