Currently climbing the UK video airplay chart following support from MTV, Flaunt and The Chart Show amongst others and after consistent airplay from BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM, Fonzerelli’s latest single is looking likely to become one of this years electronic dance anthems…
Over the past year the electronic 80’s revival has seen new acts completely transform the face of international pop music. Artists such as Lady Gaga, La Roux and Calvin Harris have all topped the years sales charts with their 80’s infused, synth filled pop smashes. There is therefore no disputing that the 80’s electronic dance revolution is the style on the tips of everyone’s tongues at the moment. However one other act has been pivotal over the past couple of years in pioneering this sound before the buzz word was even a whisper, Fonzerelli.
2008 saw Fonzerelli personally requested to play with Tiesto at his 10,000 capacity crowd at Privilege, Ibiza, the world’s biggest club and saw his remixes of Basshunter’s “Now Your Gone” and “All I Ever Wanted” feature on Basshunter’s # 1 Platinum selling UK album! This has seen him go on to remix for every major and various independent labels around the world. Becoming renowned for being insatiably creative and super prolific Fonzerelli often makes 2 or 3 original tracks in a day notching up hundreds of productions including mixes of several Top 5 acts. Last year also introduced Fonzerelli to this year’s American Idol #2 Adam Lambert. Prior to Idol commitments the two collaborated under their Digital Glitter guise and have been close ever since with Aaron’s rework of Adam Lambert – Kiss & Tell attracting over 1 million hits on YouTube. This year Fonzerelli has just finished remixing Adam’s new single and should be working with him on a track for Adam’s long awaited album.
Championed by the biggest DJ in the world, Tiesto, Fonzerelli “Dreamin’ (Of A Hot Summers Night)” started as it meant to go on picking up huge momentum in Ibiza and the hottest clubs world wide from the coolest DJs in the world. Including Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz, K-Klass, Gabriel & Dresden, Matt Darey, Moto Blanco, WAWA, Marco V, Bobina, Jonathan Ulysses (Space) and more. Robbie Rivera called the record “Amazing!” and immediately insisted on remixing it to spin his own pumping Juicy Ibiza mixes to 8,000 people a week at his debut event at Privilege.
Building on this ground swell of support the record soon hit # 2 in the DMC Buzz Chart and # 6 Cool Cuts Chart following 3 weeks in both and is set to hit # 1 in the Music Week and DMC Club Charts week beginning 24th August. “Dreamin” soon caught the attention of some major radio specialists receiving multiple plays from Scott Mills, Steve Smart, Judge Jules, Dave Pearce, Nikki Elise, Big Al, Kutski & more and was immediately B-listed on Gaydar Radio, Ministry of Sound Radio, Music Choice and more.
Fonzerelli’s guest mix which features “Dreamin” was then played on Kiss’s coveted Mainroom Mix Session, Simon Dale’s Kiss Monster Mix, Ministry of Sound Radio, Gaydar Radio, Agnelli & Nelson’s Solaris International, Armada Sessions, Big Al Total Kiss show, Paul Hughes on Energy FM and across the world including San Francisco’s #1 dance music show “HouseNation” on Movin99.7FM.
With the buzz around the record building further Jo Whiley chose “Dreamin” as one of her sound tracks of the summer featuring the track prominently in several soundbeds each day throughout the whole of August and following overwhelming feedback from listeners played the track in full on her daytime Radio 1 show.
