Jolie Cherie – “DJ Wake Up” [Hot New Tune!]


Loving this fresh disco tune from electropop Parisian trio, Jolie Cherie comprised of Etienne de Champfleury, producer Samir Allichethere and female vocalist, Melina Duval.

“DJ Wake Up” is the first full english song the band has recorded with Opus Label. The track has some great 90s Dance and Freestyle references with a bit of Modjo and Blondie vibes. In fact, if Modjo and Debbie Harry made a record together this would be it.

Take a listen and let this irresistible dancefloor summer-tune be the soundtrack of your weekend!

“DJ Wake Up” arrives August 13th.

“A cloud dipped in vanilla”

From the moment you hear the delicate drum-beats and mystic bass-line of the song, ‘Let It Go’ by mystery artist Fe, you’ll immediately know that you’re in for something special. By the time the piano chords of the song roll-in and Fe’s seductive, honey-like vocals begin to whisper “I don’t know how I’m meant to say this/ All I know is words complicate it/ See, to me was all just a hopeless dream/ I was consciously fighting to believe” you’ll be completely under her spell.

A ‘Remarkable Affair,’ the singer’s second song and self-made video on her YouTube channel has the same alluring effect. The beautiful piano-driven ballad with it’s poetic lyrics of love-yearning exude a subtle sensuality that’s visible behind every eye-wink and seductive croon. And although the songstress is quite striking; it’s the warm, nostalgic and flawless piano production of the songs that captivate the most.

Currently, there’s not much known about Fe other than she is an unsigned artist from London. We are completely spellbound by the singer’s voice and music; so here’s hoping that we’ll hear more from her very soon.
