- Today VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey
has detailed this weeks PlayStation 3 update, where no football equates to festival fever!
To quote: Greetings music lovers! Now that pesky football isn't around to take over everything we can focus on other more musical things...
We are now well in to the season (in this hemisphere anyway) and as you know VidZone
has its own festival which goes on for 6 weeks! This week it's the turn of the "Sexy Time" stage so I suggest you go out and find a partner if you haven't already and snuggle up ready for this one.
You may have also noticed our lovely banner artwork, courtesy of Andy from www.doodlesandstuff.com
Also, would you like something for free? I think the answer is probably yes, so, if you enjoyed the Foreign Beggars & Noisia exclusive we have another treat for you this week - the brand new video from The Freestylers ft. Belle Humble 'Cracks' and click HERE
to get your free Demus remix. Enjoy!
Hot New Videos
If I worked on the market this is how I would sell this... "COME GET YOUR VIDEOS, HOT NEW VIDEOS, FREE AND FRESHLY UPLOADED!!" but I don't, so I won't... Featuring New Politics 'Yeah Yeah Yeah', Guy Sebastian 'Taller, Stronger, Better'. Honestly if anyone has a more interesting way to say hot new videos? Answers on a postcard, please!
Zoom.in TV (Netherlands Only)
The wonderful Zoom.in TV have done it again, finding the biggest and best artists including the one and only top of the pop royalty, Madonna, not to mention Lena and Macy Gray, all about the women this week it seems.
You all know Ke$ha, but how well do you really know Ke$ha, I don't think you know her as well as you think you do. So, go away watch this interview and come back and tell me you knew everything that she had to say. I hope I am wrong! Also, for some unknown reason... this was filmed on a farm.
Scouting For Girls Interview
We have an exclusive interview with the Scouting for Girls as well... it's not until next week, but we have a teaser (see below) of the interview so I thought I would put it in this weeks update. Hope you can wait that long!
Artist Of The Week - Brandon Flowers (UK, Ireland)
Don't worry Brandon Flowers isn't leaving, I repeat NOT leaving The Killers, but he is embarking on a bit of a solo project for a little while and we thought it would be good to feature him. Including debut solo single 'Crossfire' and a special behind the scenes look of the making of the video.
Artist Of The Week - Maroon 5 (Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany... phew!)
There are five of them but they aren't maroon, but they do make damn good pop music I think you will all agree. This includes the new single 'Misery' which see's front man Adam Levine being beaten up by a girl and run over by a car... which is nice.
Artist Of The Week - Enrique Iglesias (Norway, Finland, Denmark, Spain, Portugal)
Julio must be so proud of his son, or a little jealous maybe? His son is still one of the biggest stars in the world and it doesn't look like that is going to change any time soon especially with his new single 'I Like It' which is really rather good. Check it out here.
Brand new NME playlist
The folk at NME have picked us more videos that they love. For those of you who love what NME do must be loving this series, long may it continue!
Exclusive interview with Slayer
You know you love this one, Slayer talk to us exclusively about all things, well Slayer. You have shown you love for these guys before, I'm sure you will do it again.
Festival Anthems - Guitar Free Stage
More festival goodness for y'all. This time whether fairly or unfairly... Guitars are banned. Electronic music all the way baby. More artwork from our friend Andy too.
Faithless Celeb Playlist
For all of you that downloaded and loved our concert, or for those of you that haven't, Maxi and Miss Bliss have chosen some of their favourite videos just for you. They are far too nice... thank you Faithless!
One To Watch - J. Cole (AU NZ)
Not Joe Cole the now Liverpool football player, but J.Cole the American rapper and producer that originally hails from Germany. He is gonna be big so learn about him hear and then you can tell your friends you were the first to know!
Mercury Prize Nominees
It's here again, we get to learn what is cool for another year, Last year it was Speech Debelle, the year before it was Elbow this year who will it be, well I have no idea... I'm not cool enough and the list hasn't been published when I wrote this... so you will have to wait and see!
