Ellie Lawson to sing live at Beachclub Fuel for her next single with Menno De Jong

Hello! So excited to be singing my new collaboration at Beach club fuel in Amsterdam on 18th June with the gorgeous producer Menno de Jong! Can’t wait for you to hear the summer atmospheric single called: ‘My place in the sun’

Official Press Release

On Saturday June 18th Menno de Jong will be performing a musical marathon on the beach of The Netherlands. An impressive 10 hour journey through the past, present and future of his career as a DJ, producer and label boss will be taking place at brand new beachclub FUEL. Famous for its stunning views of the ocean Bloemendaal provides the perfect setting for this unique event, featuring a special live performance at sunset.
Flying …under the flag of his own imprint ‘Intuition’ Menno has been involved in the Dance music scene in a multitude of ways over the past decade. Nearly 250 episodes into a succesful radio show, 50 highly sought-after podcasts, two well received mix compilations, seasonal Intuition festivals and running one of the top Trance labels worldwide have provided amazing moments to look back on, and assure much more magic to come.

As a producer Menno has established himself with tracks such as ‘Tundra’, ‘Spirit’, ‘Last Light Tonight’, ‘Bambino’, ‘Nolthando’, ‘Guanxi’, ‘Momentum’, ‘Solid State’ and remixes for artists such as Mark Otten, Alex M.O.R.P.H., The Thrillseekers and others. He has recently been honoured by Armin van Buuren spinning his latest single ‘Turtle Paradise’ on A State Of Trance twice in a row and being part of the ASOT 500 world tour in Den Bosch and Sydney.

Menno has grown since his last solo show at Westerunie, Amsterdam in 2008 and on June 18th 2011 he will be showing you exactly how during a 10 hour monster set. There is more however, as this time around a special guest will be part of the celebration.

Filming in 3D at Musion, London.


Had a really fun day at Musion yesterday with Dave and I being filmed as 3D holograms! I am the first acoustic artist that they are recording and licensing out for events around the globe and Its very exciting to be part of such a pioneering company and to know that our songs/performances will be enjoyed at events in many countries without me even stepping foot outside my house!

Other artists that are working with Musion and have used the technology are Will.i.am, Gorillaz, JLS and loads of others inc sports people like Lewis Hamilton and DAvid Beckham! So if I haven’t name dropped enough, just before we started filming my old label ‘mate’ (when I was on Atlantic USA we had the same A and R) James Blunt popped by Musion to see the technology and was really impressed! Seeing it live is the best thing about it, and for artists its a route in the music industry that isn’t effected by Piracy!

Here’s Dave and I meeting our doubles! Guess who is who!!

On the day, another artist and his band were performing and being recorded and we loved it! He’s called Flute Box Lee, and he’s amazing! He plays the flute and beatboxes at the same time! The rapper Skrein and beatbox Wandan were really good too! Check out Flute box Lee in the youtube video (with over a million hits!) below the one of us performing our song ‘I know’ on the Musion shoot. This version was recorded in 3D! Many thanks to Sanj and everyone at Musion!!

Last night’s Musion showcase: imagine if….

‘All I’m really after is magic, never the Bandwagon’ I sang out last night (lyrics from my song ‘Apple’) . I did a totally unique…crazy and mad fun gig at the Musion headquarters in Central London. Musion (as they say on their website) is a 3D holographic video projection system allowing a spectacular 3-dimensional moving life-size hologram to appear within a live stage setting’

Basically, with this technology anyone can appear live on stage without actually being there! That means as a musician you can get projected on stage anywhere around the world whilst being in the comfort of your own home or whilst travelling and even perform in many countries around the world at the same time! Talk about multi tasking! For music fans this means that you could potentially have your favourite singer in your house singing songs exclusively to you and all at Broadband internet speed! The technology is obviously pretty pricey at the moment to do that but its mad to think about where it is all leading! After all we’re spending more and more time on our laptops and computers…skype, la face and twitter, as scary as it seems 3D and virtual reality is definitely the future.

This is me performing to the crowd as a 3D holographic image last night. I could see the crowd from a little video camera. (I was tucked away in a room upstairs!)

Other non-live performances last night were from Black eyed peas rapper Will.I.am singing his half of the Cheyrl Cole duet 3 Words, X factor boys JLS, conscious punk band Anonymous Tip and emerging from a painting…only the legend Frank Sinatra!

It is a pretty weird sensation having these artists singing to you. Even though you know it is not real your brain is some what tricked into thinking they are there. Its very strange! Whats really exciting for me and for all creative people is that you can mix the live performance with art and have live special effects and animation incorporated into the live show. Im already imagining live on stage music video’s performed with animation and one recorded me playing the guitar whilst the real me sings and plays another instrument. I am devising a wish list of ideas for Musion as I write, tee hee!

It was really lovely to watch the ballet dancer that turned into a swan…and then butterflys

This technology is just amazing and will totally be used for all sections in the arts and entertainment industry as well as education and news media. Im really excited to be a part of it. Watch this space… what you can imagine you can totally create!
