I discovered Fabio on MySpace a few weeks ago, and I’ve been totally obsessed with his music ever since. I hear a lot of new artists on my travels through the Internet, but rarely do I come across an artist with as much potential as Fabio. His songs are perfect for 2009 (a mixture of Calvin Harris and Frankmusik, but 10 times better than either of them) and he’s got a major label deal, so it’ll be a big surprise if he’s not destined for success. There are several songs on his MySpace which could be top 5 hits or even no.1s. I can’t wait to see how his career progresses over the next few months.

I’ve mentioned this group a few times already, and now that they’re about to release their brilliant single, Critical, they’ll hopefully be getting the support of many other electro-pop fans too. It’s interesting that their single is being released by cheesy dance label AATW, because although it is very danceable music you certainly wouldn’t expect it to appeal to fans of other AATW acts like Scooter and Cascada. They’re more of an indie-electro group with pop sensibilities but if AATW can bring them to a wider audience, then I’m all for it. They’ve got several more ace pop songs ready to share with the world and they’re a brilliant live act, so I hope things work out well for them.
