Amiel Daemion, better known as just Amiel, was born in New York but grew up in Australia, where her family moved when she was just 2. Her music career shot to fame in 1999 when she teamed up with producer Josh G. Abrahams for the song “Addicted to Bass”, a top twenty hit in Australia and around Europe. This led to Daemion releasing studio albums such as Audio Out in 2003 and These Ties in 2005. The song “Be Your Girl” was released in 2006 an EP of remixed songs from her second album.

saturday nite with… DRAGONETTE

Playing non-stop on my mp3 right now is “I Get Around” by Dragonette

This Canadian electropop four piece is great at crafting catchy pop songs with great hooks and this exactly what they did on their new single “I Get Around”. Uplifting, unashamedly pop and highly danceable, this is excatly the kind of music you what you wanna hear when you’re riding the metro and everyone around you looks sad and grey. Give it a try and you might end up dancing and singing in the metro very soon.

Dragonette - I Get Around     

The band consists of singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara, bassist and producer Dan Kurtz, guitarist Chris Hugget and drummer Joel Stouffer. Their first record, the Dragonette EP, was released in 2005, prior to signing a record deal with Mercury Records. Dragonette then relocated to London to record their debut album Galore and toured the UK supporting local acts, including Basement Jaxx.

The singles “Take It Like  A Man” and “I Get Around” performed quite poorly on UK charts but Dragonette did get some airplay with “The Boys”, a cover of Calvin Harris‘ hit single “The Girls”, and they also became a favourite of many electro blogs…

saturday nite with… VILLENEUVE

The artist of the day is Villeneuve. His first album is called First Date and it’s now out worlwide.

On his debut album, Villeneuve succeeds in blending together a lot of different influences to create a very special formula that could be described as pop music for the ears of the 21st century.

Mélanie Pain, already known for her participation in Nouvelle Vague, lends her beautiful and delicate voice to Villeneuve’s songs.
