There’s no doubt about it, Martin Solveig released one of the catchiest dance-infused songs of 2011. With only 70,000 more record sales to go, ‘Hello’ will be hitting platinum single certification in no time, and what better way to celebrate than heading out on tour and putting out another single featuring the lovely vocals of Dragonette‘s Martina Sorbara. ‘Big In Japan’ is the 4th installment of Solveig’s SMASH Web Series, and the music video directed by Tristan Seguela & Martin Solveig is entertaining to say the very least. This new single along with ‘Hello’ and ‘Ready 2 Go’ will be featured on Solveig’s forthcoming album, SMASH, slated for release in early 2012 on Big Beat Records.

A few months back we featured the collaboration of Martin Solveig and Dragonette’s lead chica vocalist’s “Hello,” a fun dance track for sure. But with the official release of the remix package to come out on the 18th, the Dada Life boys have proved that they can take a club track from happy to smash. Whenever I hear a Dada Life remix I immediately imagine the original track in a studio suddenly hit out of no where with a barrage of champagne bottles while bananas are being thrown all over the place. The result is a big room monster and I look forward to more Dada party bashers to come in the new year!
It’s no surprise that the lead singer from Toronto’s Dragonette is adored by electronic producers looking for that sexy but badass vocal sample. With 3 new EPs out in the last 2 months, Martina is working and remixing with the likes of Kaskade, Martin Solveig, Sidney Samson, Dada Life, Joachim Garraud, Villains, and Innerpartysystem. Dragonette’s recent collaboration w/ Martin Solveig entitled “Hello” is a big room house gem that’s catchy and not too poppy for playing out. I have the Club Edit for you dirty dancers (and DJs), along with an acidy-electro take on the track from Dutchman Sidney Samson.
Also, Martina did vocals working with Kaskade on an EP for the track “Fire In Your New Shoes,” which has two especially solid electro/disco/house remixes by Innerpartysystem and Ming. Get on em because they’re well mastered fire.
