It’s widely understood that dance remixes of pop songs are a promotional gimmick. Remixes were intended to be pushed to nightclubs that would in turn create more promotion for the main mix. In the past (before iTunes), we saw these remixes finally see the light in the form of a remix CD. We saw this with many late 90’s releases; “Christina Aguilera: The remixes”, “Mariah Carey Remix CD” etc, etc. In many cases, the remixes were placed as bonus tracks on the album with no radio edit. There was no need for remix radio edit’s, it’s not like FM radio was going to play them and in many cases certain remixes we’re never printed on CD and simply disappeared but times have changed.
The rise of internet radio has brought in new music label talent into the music scene and in turn more choice for the consumer. If someone feels like listening to a certain song, he or she can simply go to Youtube, Pandora, Spotify or specialty radio stations such as— Fusion Radio and Chronix Radio. The music consumer is king again, and they don’t like to be told what to like. There is no going back, the days where music labels and FM radio dictate what people like to hear are over. The journey here was very painful however.
In 1999, when music service Napster triggered a music free-for-all it sent the music industry into a downhill spiral. This triggered the dark days of music, many labels started to downsize and cutback on releases left and right. Many medium to small labels suffered and this caused at least one small label head; Tom Silverman, founder of Tommy boy records to go on a Sound Exchange rampage against Internet Radio that made music labels look very bad. Despite this, many labels did not even support Sound Exchange and continued to trek forward. They are the real voiceless victims caught in between the royalty debacle.
The survivability of the music labels is very important though. Sure, the internet has opened many doors for independent artists, but at the end of the day. Music labels are the glue that holds good songwriters, producers, promoters and artists together. Many artists don’t realize how bad their productions suffer after leaving their label to go the no label route.
So now that digital music sales are rebounding and retailers such as iTunes, Amazon and Beatport have really taken off, why aren’t many top 40 remixes getting posted for sale? We constantly get emails from our listener’s asking us where they can buy a certain remix. Music labels have nothing to lose by doing this, overhead costs of posting a song on iTunes is very low. Generally when a song is not available for sale or released, the public finds a way to obtain it anyway. Wouldn’t it be a lot easier and beneficial for everyone to make all remixes available via digital music stores?
Something has gotten into pop divas recently. It seems as though their music videos are becoming increasingly violent towards men. Christina Aguilera’s new music video “Your Body” goes so far as to provide a warning “No men were harmed in the making of this video.” She then goes into a sparkly, glittery murder spree like a delusional raging lunatic— has X-tina come back from more???
In similar fashion Kimberley Locke loses it in “Finally Free”. She suffocates her best friend’s boyfriend and kidnaps him. The two conspire to kill him by throwing him into a swimming pool bound by his hands and feet. They finally decide to let him live and drive off— but nobody piss off Kimberley okay? Her behavior shows she’s clearly disturbed and she came very close to committing redrum! for those born after 1995. That means MURDER !
So as many of you know Christina Aguilera has been keeping busy lately coaching her teams on The Voice! Sometime between coaching and being Christina she found time to record a few songs! This is awesome cause I have to say, I for one was wondering if and when she would put her talent back as priority #1. Well she has and she just released her new track titled “Your Body” this past week! Already the remixers are hard at work making the track into something a little better. As for the rest of her album “Lotus” we are going to have to wait until November.
Since the song is only getting play on a few FM stations and is all over You Tube I found it only fitting to do a song battle between the original song and a favorite new remixer of mine (Dj Reidiculous). Check out the two videos below and take a vote on which you like better, the Remix? or Original?
Don’t forget to Vote!
Well do I have a treat for you Fusion fans! A snippet of Christina Aguilera’s new single “Your Body” has been leaked and I have here here for you to listen and report back if you like it or not.
We’ve been waiting to hear Christina Aguilera‘s new single longer than we can remember (hopefully, you sill remembered that it was coming our way), and today the demo recording of Xtina’s collaboration with pop hit maker Max Martin (!) has finally surfaced. Head here to stream the song (before it inevitably gets taken down).
Could this be a great choice for remixers everywhere??
Finally Sia Furler is getting the recognition that she deserves. The smoky voiced Australian chanteuse has worked mainly as an indie musician and now has finally crossed over into the pop dance market to make songs that she truly loves as an artist.
Coming from a musical family, she once sang at a karaoke bar in Italy and was lucky enough to be heard by a local DJ who invited her to sing on one of his songs. That led to her doing backing vocals with Jamiroquai and working with Sony Records.
Sia became well known to American audiences with the song “Breathe Me” from Showtime’s finale episode of Six Feet Under.
Her studio album Some People Have Real Problems captured the sound of that single and was encouraged by the label to keep that tone and move in the same direction as the single even though Sia herself preferred more upbeat songs.
Christina Aguilera approached Sia about collaborating on her album Bionic and also for the soundtrack to the film Burlesque where one track “Bound to You” was nominated for a Golden Globe.
Sia joked with me in an interview that she could make fuck all on the new album and still be fine after the money she made recording with Christina.
She later appeared as Christina’s sidekick on NBC’s The Voice to advise talent on the show.
Her latest album We Are Born was released in 2010 with quirky pop tunes and a light carefree vibe. I attended two of her live shows when she visited Chicago that sold out and had lines outside for hours. Look for lots of yarn at her concerts.
Look for hidden gems after that such as when she provided guest vocals on “Never So Big” for Fatboy Slim and David Byrne’s album Here Lies Love.
She covers songs such as Madonna’s “Oh Father” and Britney Spears’ “Gimme More” among others with her own original take.
Furler co-wrote and sang on David Guetta’s “Titanium” track then twittered “It’s amazing that 40 minutes and zero promotion turned into my most successful song to date!”
While she recorded demos for the new Madonna album MNDA but wound up on the cutting room floor. Too bad, maybe that was what the big M needed, more creativity and originality.
“Wild Ones” her duet with Flo Rida seems to be the huge hit single that she has been looking for. It has the instantly recognizable voice that I have followed through the years. It is on constant rotation and really makes you wonder what this page boy haircut vocal acrobat will do next.
She is slated to be on the Tegan and Sara record with new music of her own on the way. Sia is an artist that dances to the beat of her own drum and her fans wouldn’t have it any other way. The future looks bright for sister Sia, like she said to me with childlike attitude one time “goodie goodie gum drops!”
Amba Shepherd is the latest triple threat to come out of Sidney Australia! Amba is a singer, songwriter, and producer who is gaining world recognition and success through her songwriting abilities, producing, and voice!
If her name sounds familiar it is! Amba is gracing our Fusion charts at #15 having featured vocals on the Finnish producing duo Marcus Maison & Will Dragens song, “Reign”.
According to Ambas website a few of her credits include writing, producing, and singing on tracks such as Ferry Corstens “Walk On Air ” ft Pierre, and Virtual Riots “Superhuman”. On the subject of her voice, when Amba sings it is soothing almost shy to a point, but when paired with a prog-house beat, her voice can pierce through you having a deep affect on your intake of her lyrics.
Recently Amba has been working in writing sessions with accredited producers, songwriters, and labels such as the OWSLA label which has worked with Skrillex, and talents like Guy Roche who has produced for Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion, Phillipe- Marc Antequil who has worked with Jesse J, Niklas King who has worked with Jennifer Lopez and so on!
Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open because there will be more to come from Amba Shepherd in the future! Until then keep listening to Fusion for more hits!
Dick Clark, who had arguably the most important pre-MTV influence on music with his show “American Bandstand,” is putting on another huge lineup for his American Music Awards. Christina Aguilera and Justin Bieber will join other acts including Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, and Katy Perry on November 20 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. In addition, there will be dueling pre-shows, one on ABC-TV and one online, featuring Estelle and Lance Bass.
Adam Levine (Maroon 5 frontman) and Christina Aguilera show us their moves! In this new video “Moves Like Jagger”!
