So – the holidays are over and for those of you who aren’t sick of hearing it yet: Happy New Year! 2012 has been the busiest, most eventful year in the Matt Pop calendar so far. Highlights include the succes of Peter Wilson’s Laser Light album and singles, the many mixes for Almighty Records and RuPaul that came out, the opportunity to revive the “lost” Samantha Fox PWL tracks, the Facebook Fan Group growing to 800+ members, and the Matt Pop YouTube channel passing the 2 million views mark. On a personal note: meeting Dj Stonedog, Sammy Paul, Nicki French and Peter Wilson in the flesh for the first time at the Energise Records night in London was amazing, and the fact that a few Matt Pop fans came up to say hi was the cherry on the cake! Then there was the Matt Pop Meet & Greet in Amsterdam, and the Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker in London – it’s almost too much! Except it isn’t ofcourse, so there will be plenty more Pop coming your way in 2013. Here is a little round-up:
Just released: the Matt Pop mixes of Paralyzed, the explosive track from Blackpool’s finest Rob Eagle. Work on the Matt Pop mixes for Hazell Dean’s upcoming album “In The Name Of” is almost done, and first reactions to the finished songs have been very favourable, so fingers crossed! Then there is Peter Wilson’s next album, with 3 Matt Pop productions already recorded and a few more to come. Other Matt Pop releases that should be coming your way soon include When Boy Meets Boy by Matt Fishel and Unprotectable by David Christopher (it has been a long time coming, but I am assured by the label that it is now really on its way). Finally, for now, there is a very exciting project Matt Pop is working on with Almighty Records. Can’t say much more yet, as I don’t want to jinx it, but if it happens, you won’t have very long to wait. Make sure to check this page regularly for any updates.
