Ricky Galliano feat. Fatman Scoop ‘Pump The World’

Ricky Galliano feat. Fatman Scoop ‘Pump The World’ ‘Pump The World’ marks the birth of the new dance label, Week’N’Dance! Firing all cylinders, Week’N’Dance make a grand entrance with 2 giant talents of the electronic dance music world – Swiss producer Ricky Galliano and Grammy Award winning US vocalist Fatman Scoop. ‘Pump The World’ is charged with positive party energy and a catchy vocal hook that’s armed with a message calling for Joy and unity throughout the world. The package also features a version from Italian producer Antony Fennel, who delivers a monstrous slice of peak time dancefloor action, pulsing with exhillarating breakdowns. Purple Music boss Jamie Lewis, whips up a powerful electro disco storm with sexy ‘Moroderesque’ style synths and grooving beats as Fatman beckons us all to “PUUUUMP IT UUUUP!!!” 

Ricky Galliano and his producer David Roy thought about the perfect video for ‘Pump the World’, with their goal to involve high level personality Mr David Ebner –  the effects director of many successful films like including ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’, ‘Avatar’, ‘Sin City’ and ‘Alice In Wonderland’. David Ebner accepted their offer and has created a real gift to the song thanks to his amazing talents, directing the whole video!

Ricky Galliano discovered his passion for music at the early age of 6 when he attended song school participating in several shows. In 1994, he heard a trance song for the first time, ‘Nuclear Sun’, that inspired him to start writing music himself and also began to discover luminaries such as Masters At Work, Dj Spen, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, David Morales, among others.

Roger Shah presents Sunlounger – Balearic Beauty

Roger Shah presents Sunlounger - Balearic BeautyNow perhaps considered the consummate master of Balearically-inclined music, this August sees the return of electronic music composer Roger Shah’s best-known sobriquet. Three years on from his last Sunlounger excursion, Shah is ready with a new wave of captivating sun-tipped audio, all primed to take the world’s lounges, chillout areas and more cultured dancefloors subtly by storm.

‘Balearic Beauty’ brings to life 14 new Sunlounger recordings. Through them Roger has involved the vocal talents of many, including ‘A Beach Side of Life’ album alumni Inger Hansen, Yoav (of ‘Beautiful Lie’ fame) and EDM singer/songwriter/hit-maker JES. Also on board are an ensemble of newly discovered male and female vox talent, including Sason Bishope Parry, Chase, Alexandra Badoi, Kingseyes and Suzie Del Vecchio. Arriving in its now customary Album and Chillout versions, ‘Balearic Beauty’ picks up exactly where ‘Beach Side’ left off… So bring your pulse rate to resting, find your spot in the sun, hit recline and prepare for the Lounger.

“Balearic Beauty’s list of strength areas is considerable. It’s singing and song-writing work (and the stylistic breadth between each track) is impressive. The pace is beautifully measured and admirably Roger is discernably making regular use of live instrumentation at every turn.” – MIXMAG September Album of the Month
