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.

One of the problems with buying so many cheap CDs in Eastern Europe is that it's almost impossible to give them all the attention that they deserve back home. I still have records from my visit to Russia in 2004 that i haven't really listened to yet. In Ukraine, i caught a re-run of the 2004 Muz.TV awards that jogged my memory. Along with Fabrika's charming performance of Lalik, and a stupendous medley from Diskoteka Avariya, one of the highlights of an amazing show was Hi-Fi's Sedmoi Lepestok.

Although Russian pop has never been afraid of pushing the camp factor, lead singer Mitya has been one of the most "flamboyant" performers in the entertainment industry since the group's inception in the late 1990s (he's the one with the big hair, not the woman with a moustache molesting Dima Bilan). They've been quiet for a while but look set to return this year with a new female singer called Katya joining the line-up.
