define sorry

dear diary,

Let me define the word 'Sorry' for you.

regretful: feeling or expressing regret or sorrow or a sense of loss over something done or undone; "felt regretful over his vanished youth ...

So unless you feel that way, just DONT FUCKING SAY IT.

Ze! on weheartmusic.vox.com


dear diary,

A review by We Heart Music today! :)

"When bands submit one or two songs, we generally just ignore them. We seem to get a lot of demos, remixes, or a random b-side from a 6-track EP (talk about odd). And I would've ignored Ze! altogether, if not for her funky MIA-esque look.

You know that saying, "never judge a book by its cover"? It doesn't apply here, she's what you'll expect, and that's not a bad a thing. I mean it would be awful if it turned out she was singing polka or something (which actually now that I think about it, that would sound cool).

Ze! (pronounced "zay"), according to her biography is influenced by (who else?) MIA, Santigold, Yelle and Peaches (whom, for one year I saw saw her and Gonzales play four times at different dates). Her background is from television commercials, before venturing to rapper then to hip hop/drum 'n bass.

It said she's released a full length, Shameless, in 2005 and an EP in 2003, but those releases sounds very different than her current music. And currently, "I am Glam" and "Hello Disco" are both excellent electroclash dance songs. The lyrics are simple and not to mention catchy ("I am glam, glam is what I am" and "take me to the disco/bring me to the disco") which suits this style of music. You're not really concern with what she's singing, only that it sounds good (however "Disco" sounds deep in some parts).

I think Ze! has a lot of potential, but people might be turned off by the MIA-crazy-outfits-look. You can pick up her latest songs from popcuts.com. She's doing some live dates through the UK."

Ze! on Chronique Musicale


dear diary,

Yes, I love attention. Here's a post by a french music blog, Chronique Musicale!

"Talent MySpace : Kuala Lumpur Baby !

On la croirait tout droit sortie du roman “Shangai Baby” (si ce n’est qu’elle est originaire de Malaisie). On y retrouve cette folie, cette vie électrique, provocante, cette envie de liberté, et cette énergie.

I Am Glam est une bombe electro-rock-dance post-moderne. Très 80’s sur certains aspects : le son des synthés, l’ambiance flashy-fluo. Et en même temps ce titre est très moderne par le thème abordé (une femme revendiquant sa part de séduction), et dans l’interprétation rock lui permettant de ne pas tomber dans une dance robotisée qui faisait référence au début des années 90 (”Pump Up The Jam!”).

Pour tout savoir sur Ze!, direction sa page MySpace.

A l’écoute après le break"


(Babelfish-ed this)

"It would be believed straight left the novel “Shangai Baby” (if it is not that it is originating in Malaysia). One finds there this madness, this electric life, provocante, this desire of freedom, and this energy.

I Am Glam is a post-modern bomb electro-rock'n'roll-dance. Very 80 ' S on certain aspects: the sound of synthés, environment flashy-fluo. And at the same time this title is very modern by the topic approached (a woman asserting its share of seduction), and in interpretation rock'n'roll enabling him not to fall into a robotized dance which referred to the beginning of the year 90 (” Pump Up The Jam! ”).

Ze! on Charts in France


dear diary,

I am featured on Charts in France today... how fabulous! I am aware that the first commenter decided to say 'pas terrible', but hey, at least he felt the need to say something. So thanks for saying SOMETHING. It has made my day! :)

"Partageant sa vie entre Bruxelles et Londres, Zé! est originaire de Malaisie. La jeune chanteuse est également auteur et compositeur. Se reconnaissant dans des artistes telles que Lady Gaga, Yelle mais aussi M.I.A., Santigold et Madonna, Zé! est prête à conquérir l'Europe. Zé! (prononcer « zay ») est une jeune artiste de Kuala Lumpur. Collaborant avec le producteur belge Ruben Debusschere, la chanteuse écrit et compose une musique bien à elle dans laquelle elle se reconnaît, cependant influencée par Lady Gaga, Yelle, MIA, Santigold, New Young Pony Club, Peaches mais aussi Madonna.

Ses chansons électropop ("I Am Glam", "Candy", "Boys I Like"...) sont intégrées dans un univers coloré et excentrique qui n'est pas sans rappeler Lady Gaga et Yelle. L'artiste n'en est pas à son coup d'essai et n'a pas attendu le succès de ses consœurs pour faire sa musique. De nombreuses participations à des publicités, à un trio RNB mais aussi de nombreuses collaborations musicales lui ont permis de s'affirmer et de se lancer en solo. Un premier EP "My Make-Believe" en 2003, un premier album "Shameless" en 2005 ont permis de se faire connaître mais aussi d'être nommé à des prix encourageant les jeunes artistes.

Son nouvel album devrait sortir à la fin de l'été. Le premier extrait "I Am Glam" est d'ores et déjà disponible." - Nikolas LENOIR

I babelfish-ed this, and it translates to;
"Sharing its life between Brussels and London, Zé! is originating in Malaysia. The young singer is also author and type-setter. Recognizing itself in artists such as Lady Gaga, Yelle but also M.I.A., Santigold and Madonna, Zé! is ready to conquer l' Europe. Zé! (to pronounce “zay”) is a young artist of Kuala Lumpur. Collaborating with the Belgian producer Ruben Debusschere, the singer written and a music well with it composes in which it is recognized, however influenced by Lady Gaga, Yelle, MIA, Santigold, New Young Pony Club, Peaches but also Madonna. Its songs électropop (" I Am Glam" , " Candy" , " Servant boys I Like" …) are integrated in a coloured universe and eccentric which n' is not without pointing out Lady Gaga and Yelle. L' artist n' in is not with its blow d' test and n' the success of its colleagues did not wait to make her music. Many participations in publicities, with a trio RNB but also of many musical collaborations allowed him s' to affirm and to launch out in solo. A first EP " My Make-Believe" in 2003, a first album " Shameless" in 2005 allowed to make known itself but also d' to be named at prices encouraging the young artists. Its new album should leave at the end l' summer. The first extract " I Am Glam" is d' now and already available."

Electroqueer loves me... yay! :)


dear diary,

EQ posted the cover to Boys i Like awhile back - and they've posted a new one today featuring Candy! Yesssssssss!


"Say hello to Zé!

I'm pretty sure I've written about her before awhile back as she did the vocals on Dirty Disco Doll's track "Boys I Like" which was in my world - an electro sensation. It would seem Zé! (pronounced zay) has gone the solo path now and is promoting her fresh electro in which EQ is fully on board with.

Take a listen to "Candy" below - it's super nifty. She likes to describe the music as a mix between Madonna, Lady Gaga, Peaches, M.I.A and Santigold - and I would have to agree, it's a rather accurate description.

Take a listen to Zé! over on MySpace and I think you'll agree that she's got that something special."
