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.

France's footballers may be looking a bit creaky but the nation's pop scene still seems quite strong. One of the most promising new stars of last year was the French-Moroccan-Egyptian chanteuse Najoua Belyzel. Her debut album has just been released and, while it sadly doesn't all follow the same path as the slightly gothic, Mylene-influenced, electro-pop brilliance of Gabriel, it's entertaining none the less. Aside from the lead single, at first listen the highlights of Entre Deux Mondes are Je Ferme Les Yeux and Stella - arguably Gabriel v.2 and Gabriel v.3 but it's a winning formula.

    What a coincidence - I had just heard clips of her songs on iTunes and was planning on buying the album when I go to Paris next month!
