But there is a bonus: There is another fabulous track called "Caught Up" and it also gets remixed. Both songs are house tracks that will sure to have you dancing around the room. And each track gets two exciting remixes each.

Get your groove on and buy the EP at iTunes. Don't delay! Do it today!
Back in 2009, Annikafiore was part of a dance-pop duo called Avatar versus Eve (A.v.E.). Their first single was the wonderful song "Party People." Sadly, the song never had a video. There was only a short clip of a live performance on YouTube.
Well, five years after the release of the song … a video has been made! But not by Annikafiore. Instead, I thought how fun it would be to make a video for the song. So I enlisted our friend Matt and my husband Arturo to help me make the video. Matt and I would go out on the town of San Francisco in drag characters Madison and Sausi, and Arturo would film us.
We didn't really have a big plan. We just sort of made it up as we went along. And it didn't help any that it was a very hot day in August! And we laughed all night long!

Since I finished editing the video, we have laughed and laughed even more over it. Especially since my big wig (two wigs actually) kept sliding off! I sent to Annikafiore yesterday and she loved it and gave her blessing for it to be on YouTube.
So, without anymore delay, here is the video for "Party People."
Gwenno, The Queen of Welsh Dream Pop, is back with a double A-side single! Woo-hoo!
The songs are called "Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki" and "Calon Peiriant." And great news! There is a video for the latter song!
Before I try to describe the songs, I thought I'd head over to Peski (Gwenno's record label) and see what they had to say …
Communicating through the medium of pop, Gwenno blends big themes and a real sense of revolution to produce a powerful, politically-charged record. 'Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki' is a reference to Owain Owain’s 1976 novel ('Y Dydd Olaf') about a dystopian future where the robots have taken over and are busily turning the human race into clones through the use of medication. 'Calon Peiriant' is Gwenno’s response to the political upheaval she sees playing out all over Europe – from the borders of Scotland to the Basque country and beyond – as well as a war cry to all those who are dissatisfied with media propaganda and cultural manipulation.
Last week, Gwenno released a video for the dreamy track "Calon Peiriant." Have a look and listen …
I'm a bit more excited for the track "Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki." For this track the beat picks up and as Gwenno said on her Facebook page, it's "the song to dance to when the world comes to an end!" The Italo disco song is dancefloor dreamy! Have a listen …
Gwenno, The Dream Brenhines Pop Cymru, yn ôl gyda sengl A dwbl-ochr! Woo-Hoo! Gelwir y caneuon yn cael eu "Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki" a "Calon Peiriant." A newyddion gwych! Mae yna fideo ar gyfer y gân olaf!
Cyn i mi ceisio ddisgrifio'r caneuon, yr wyf yn meddwl y byddwn i'n ben ar at Peski (label recordiau Gwenno) a gweld beth oedd ganddynt i'w ddweud ...
Cyfathrebu drwy gyfrwng y pop, Gwenno cyfuno themâu mawr ac ymdeimlad gwirioneddol o chwyldro i gynhyrchu cofnod pwerus, gwleidyddol-cyhuddo. 'Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki' yn gyfeiriad at Owain Owain nofel 1976 ('Y Dydd Olaf') am ddyfodol dystopian lle y robotiaid wedi cymryd drosodd ac yn brysur yn troi'r hil ddynol i mewn clonau drwy ddefnyddio meddyginiaeth. 'Calon Peiriant' yw ymateb Gwenno i'r cynnwrf gwleidyddol hi yn gweld chwarae allan ar hyd a lled Ewrop - o'r ffin rhwng yr Alban i'r wlad y Basg a thu hwnt - yn ogystal â crio rhyfel i bawb sy'n anfodlon gyda propaganda cyfryngau a thrin diwylliannol.
Beth yw ychydig yn fwy cyffrous i mi yw y trac "Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki." Ar gyfer y llwybr hwn y curiad yn codi ac fel y dywedodd Gwenno ar ei dudalen Facebook, 'i' "y gân i ddawnsio i pan ddaw'r byd i ben!" Mae'r gân disgo Italo yn llawr dawnsio dreamy! Cael gwrando ... https://soundcloud.com/peskirecords/fratloish-hiang-perpeski-gwenno
Rwy'n gobeithio y bydd fideo ar gyfer y gân!
