Dr. Mateo and Martin Blix of Italove

After the success of Too Late To Cry earlier this year, which included a Matt Pop remix, the next single by Swedish Italo Disco darlings Italove will be  a track written and recorded by Italove and produced by Matt Pop. Song title and release details to be announced soon.

Last night at The Winston Kingdom, Amsterdam, I stood behind the decks once again for the 13th edition of the infamous Euro Song Travestival. The house was packed and everyone agreed that this year was the best ever, with very strong voices, some surprising newcomers, and a performance of Conchita‘s Rise Like A Phoenix featuring “special effects” that had everyone absolutely in stitches. The real Eurovision Song Contest is 60 years old this year so I thought I’d gather all my Eurovision-related mixes together (except Euphoria, which is available from my Legitmix page) for a timely give-away. I have been a little cheeky by including my ABBA-Blondie mash-up, but then again: Ring Ring WAS ABBA‘s first attempt, even if it didn’t make it through the Swedish pre-selection in 1973. Countries represented in my give-away are The Netherlands, Israel, Sweden, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Serbia & Montenegro, and the United Kingdom. Some of these are over 10 years old, so perhaps a little dated, but I hope you will still get some enjoyment out of them. This is what you get:
ABBA v. Blondie – Hanging On The Ring Ring (Matt Pop Mix)
Dana International v.Tiësto – Ding Dong (Matt Pop Mix)
Ell and Nikki – Running Scared (Matt Pop Mix)
Glennis Grace – My Impossible Dream (Matt Pop Mix)
Hari Mata Hari – Lejla (Matt Pop Mix 2015 Remaster)
Lisa Andreas – Stronger Every Minute (Matt Pop Mix 2015 remaster)
Madison Avenue v. Gina G – Dont Call Me Baby, Gina (Matt Pop Mix)
Roberto Bellarosa –  Love Kills (Matt Pop’s 12 Points Club Mix)
Željko Joksimović – Lane Moje (Matt Pop Mix 2015 remaster)

Luv’ Book+CD

Today was the official press launch of The Story Of Luv’, the book about the ultimate Dutch pop act Luv’, who sold millions of records world-wide during the late 70s and early 80s. The book contains a cd featuring all the hits, plus 3 bonus tracks, two of which are new Matt Pop remixes. The full tracklisting is below. This was the first time I saw the finished book and I can honestly say that it is pure joy to leaf through the many stories, articles and memories, and see the hundreds of photographs, from mega-glamorous to disarmingly candid. Some of the photo sessions have to be seen to be believed, giving new depth to the term cheesy. Wonderful :)  Tomorrow is the fan day, where Luv’ fans can get their hands on the book and mingle with fellow pop lovers. José and Marga will be present, too. You can order your book+cd here:
