Progressive House | Laidback Luke feat. Martel – We Are The Stars (Club Mix)

Laidback Luke the dutch electro house master has given us a follow up to the club track “1234” with “We Are The Stars”, the official anthem for Heineken commercials this summer. It will be the anthem of the EURO 2012, which shows the growing trend of Djs capitalizing of their growing popularity and becoming more involved in commercial activities and getting sponsorships, like true musical superstars. “We Are The Stars” provides a festival friendly melody, a varying bass line in classic Laidback Luke fashion and quality male vocals from Martel giving the track serious sing a long potential. Since this is the EURO 2012 anthem, who do you think will be holding the trophy come July 1st?

Pop | MARTEL – Ricochet

Posted by on June 5, 2012

Let me introduce you to MARTEL, a new project from LA-based songwriter/producer Marty James and producer Matt Price. Late last night they released “Ricochet”, their debut single, which combines some funky old-school production straight from the eighties matched with soulful vocals. In my opinion, this is what Pop music should sound like. You can also hear MARTEL featured on the new Laidback Luke Heineken/Euro 2012 anthem “We Are the Stars” set to be released June 7th, which can be previewed here.
