AirCheck 121509

Written by jeremy on Tuesday, 15 of December , 2009 at 10:37 am

This week’s AirCheck is all Europe again.

As another year draws to a close, artists all over Europe have released their latest, hopefully CD-sales-inspiring, singles. With all of our time devoted to getting ready to go live on the FM dial, and being out of our studio while it’s remodeled, the past couple weeks things have mounted up, so there’s a ton of new music. As usual this is my worksheet, so not everything will be covered… just artists I needed to remember. The nice part of it is that WordPress has pretty good search capabilities, so as I grab these snippets, more and more of the international artists will be searchable here.

Here are the ones new this week:

Dan B?lan – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dan Mihai B?lan (born February 6, 1979 in Chi?in?u, Moldavian SSR) is a Moldovan singer, songwriter, and producer. He has performed rock, and pop. One of the most successful part of his music career was when he was part of the eurodance music trio O-Zone, a group he led to fame across Europe with the hit single Dragostea din Tei.

In 2007, Balan introduced an alter ego, “Crazy Loop” with the Eurodance
flavored song “Crazy Loop (Mm Ma Ma).” The video, directed by Marc
Klasfeld, was released throughout Europe in the fall of 2007 and was
voted the song of the year by fans. In December 2007, Dan also released
a Crazy Loop album called “The Power of Shower”. The song “Crazy Loop”
reached number 1 on the Romanian Charts.
