UK MUSIC: FRIXION FEATURING FDM – ‘AFRAID’

New group Frixion have teamed up with FDM (aka Fun*dmental) on their debut single Afraid. I really like this song and it’s good to see FDM back on the scene. It’s strange this is Frixion’s debut single but FDM almost steal the show. But the groups do sound good together and I think Afraid will go on to become a hit single.

UK MUSIC: ORIE – ‘ZONIN’ / ‘FLY WITH ME’

UK artist Orie has just released the videos to his  singles  Zonin and Fly With Me. Check it out below. The intro goes on for too long and the vocals sound slightly off-key and shaky, but perhaps this was done deliberately for effect??? However this is the type of dance track that will probably get some air play in other parts of Europe. The video –  I don’t really understand it, but that’s one interesting looking blond chick. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Your []
