A lot of fun! It consists of upbeat songs that you would here in top nightclubs around the U.S. The stuff Dj’s love to play and remix in the clubs. I wanted to do a more Top 40 mainstream feel. I wanted to add a kind of fantasy element to some of the tracks as well. Futuristic in a kind of ”Final Fantasy” way. I think we need new music for the new generation. Music has definitely changed; it’s now very enhanced because of technology. Now kids are very savvy and have the hottest gadgets and know how to use them. They want more online, video games and music. I hope to (make them happy and) give them this.
The first single, which is now available on iTunes, is title “Oh La La” what made you chose this song as your first release? What does it say to your fans?
We chose the “Ooh La La” song because it’s sexy and fun! We got many different responses as to what it reminded them of. Some said it sounded soulful others said trance and even others referred it to the new “Dev” song. I think guys and girls can relate to being in a situation when your at a club and first meeting that one person who turns you on. Lust, attraction, longing feelings of excitement when someone just does it for you. This makes you wanna…
It says you can go out and have fun and flirt and be sexy and turn someone on and that it’s perfectly ok. Especially for a young woman.
