Directed by Justin Coloma, the video for “Operator” debuts at USAToday.com. The video is both a retro and modern concept, similar to DJ Dan's debut album namesake, Future Retro (Nettwerk Records). With a plethora of new ways to communicate, the video pays homage to the grandaddy of all mediums - the telephone. The video features Blake Lewis inside an ultra-modern phonebooth lined with neon lights and an LCD screen and DJ Dan managing a 40s-inspired switchboard, filtering the track.
A stalwart of the West Coast House sound, DJ Dan is a remixer extraordinaire (Lady Gaga, P. Diddy, Black Eyed Peas), continually imparting his influential voice of authenticity, knowledge, and pure love for all things music. Blake’s incomparable energy, combined with DJ Dan’s trademark production, make for a fun and sexy reworking of the 1985 hit originally recorded by Midnight Star.
USAToday.com premiered the new single from DJ Dan& Überzone called "Operator," which features vocals by former American Idol contestant and USA Today Idol Chatter guest blogger Blake Lewis. Check out the video by clicking above or HERE.
"Operator" will appear on DJ Dan's third EP,DJ Dan Presents: Future Retro, Evolution 3 (April 6), in anticipation of his first full-length release, Future Retro. The track was originally a chart-topping R&B smash for Midnight Starr in 1985, and serves of Dan's third "retro" tribute.

You don’t have to spend long in the company of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass to work out the secret behind the success of Swiss/German duo BOY’s debut album.

Mutual Friends is an album of simple, heartfelt pop decorated with art school elegance and occasional folky flourishes. Their infectiously catchy single, "Little Numbers," has collected more than 7 million views on YouTube.
