Smash Bang Baby

French DJ Martin Solveig has just released a new video, the first from his brand new, slightly secret, project. It is totally insane but perfect for the current Wimbledon frenzied lifestyle.

Starring the vocals of Dragonette’s Martina, the song is nice enough, but it’s worth watching regardless. The one and only Bob Sinclar stars as Martin’s opponent in a tennis match where the players seeds are determined by their DJ Mag rankings and real life tennis man Nocak Djokovic does a comedy turn.

Fingers crossed for a Solveig vs Gaga rematch soon.


Popstarz Setlist 5/6/09

I was suffering from intense toothache while DJing on Friday (and must have drunk about a bottle and half of champagne, but more on that later) but it seems pain = a great DJ set. We’ve not played Scissor Sisters since leaving the Scala but hearing Comfortably Numb again was brilliant. Here’s what I played.

VV Brown – Crying Blood
Noisettes – Never Forget You
Dimestars – Echo Beach
The Knife – Heartbeats
La Roux – Bulletproof
Gossip – Heavy Cross
