Double Win! Erik Hassle Competition and Ellie Goulding Remixes!

Cripes! It seem’s that I’m fast becoming the popmeister here at WANARB! I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing but either way it means today I get to give away a pair of super-exclusive tickets, and get you (and HazMat) up to speed on Ellie Goulding (which involves a nice segway). Tremendous.

Things seem things to be picking up really quickly for the Swede, Erik Hassle (I blogged him here a few weeks back). Following on from a couple of headline shows in London and a show at Eliza Doolittle’s EP launch at West Rocks last week, he’s announced he’ll be playing a special, one off, apartment show at a secret location in East London on December 17th. That’s right, an APARTMENT show. Anyway, this is gonna be a truly amazing night, we’re honoured to have been sent invites for all the team at WANARB – but that’s not all, the guys at Island records have said that we can give a pair of tickets away here on the blog to our lucky readers! That’s right, you can join up with us on a very exclusive night.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of being at this amazing gig with us is email “I WANT TO COME TO THE APARTMENT PARTY!” to with the title “Erik Hassle Competition”. It really is that easy. We’ll pull a name out of the hat (inbox) at random. The competition closes on Sunday night (6th Dec) and the winner will be notified by email by Friday 11th Dec.

I posted some tracks on Erik in my last blog, and a demo that I unearthed which I haven’t been able to get out of my head. Its amazing pop goodness.

So, not only have we got a great competition, but here’s the segway. Erik’s been busy with Ellie Goulding (who’s Jakwobs remix HazMat posted earlier this week) and here’s a video of an acoustic cover. Their vocals work well together, and it’s a lot better than the original in my opinion.

After the Jakwobs blog post of the remix of her single ‘Under the Sheets’ I thought it would be a nice idea to get the original up, along with a few remixes courtesy of Neon Gold, who’ll be releasing the single on 7” as their 10th single through their website in the states and Pure Groove in blighty.

Good yes? She’s another one to watch out for next year. The whole (bangs head against keyboard post writing the next word) ‘blogosphere’ (ah, it hurts) has been getting behind the 23year old Hereford lass, even Perez Hilton has for Christ’s sake, as Westwood would say “blowing up big time….boom!”
