Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

Sammi Cheng (Cheng Sau Man) is regarded as both the most bankable female star in the Hong Kong movie industry and the only long-standing challenger to the almighty Faye Wong for the position of Asia's favourite Chinese-language singer. Despite admiring her performances in films like Infernal Affairs, i've always found her rather over-rated as a pop diva. Almost all of the best songs on her recent Mi Century hits album are inferior versions of tracks by my beloved Lee Jung Hyun. I say "almost" as there's one stand-out single that the Korean whirlwind wasn't responsible for, although i have a feeling it might have originally been a hit for one of her compatriots. 808 is a charming, woozy effort, half laid-back Puffy, half classic Shanghainese torch singer.
