Blake and his new puppy, Sir Diddimus
Blake Lewis tells his fans in a new My Space blog that he’s signing with a new record label:
More news to come soon….. but on the down low. I’ll be signing with a new record label and will have a new single out soon. I mean brand spank me new! Can’t wait for you to hear it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally, a label that wants to work…. Whattt???? It can’t be.. So stoked! The new record is going to be on the lines of How Many Words and Surrender. Rock/Electro/Pop with a little Bshorty love.
This summer has been pretty chill, but I’ve still managed to work pretty hard on some new music. I have 4 tracks in the works with Darude, DJ Dan/Uberzone and BT. From now till December, they should all be out there waiting for your ears to bless them.
Hm. My guess is a small indie label, but I’m sure more will be revealed. Blake’s re-mix of “How Many Words” is currently #21 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart where it has charted as high as #8. While his blend of 80/90’s techno pop didn’t catch on with the general public, I think there is a spot for Blake in the techno/DJ/dance world. Arista dropping him was a big set back, but he’ll bounce back. Maybe not as a superstar in the pop world, but he’ll do just fine in his niche.
Other news: He’s got some tour dates up HERE. He’s got dates in the North and Southeast. (He’s playing a club up the street from me!) And he and Chris Richardson just returned from a charity basketball game in Norway and Iceland.
