Mutu - Australia's Taio Cruz?

Although I never actually got around to reviewing his album for the blog, I'm completely sick for Taio Cruz. That whole urban dance sound pushes my buttons and I really want to zoom around Ibiza in his speedboat! Given the surging popularity of the genre (See Usher's "DJ Got Us Falling In Love" and Flo Rida's surprisingly amazing "Club Can't Handle Me") it's no surprise that an Australian has finally put their hand up for a piece of the pie. Not that Mutu is a johnny come lately. In fact, I've been meaning to write about him since January when his taster single "Not Worth Your Love" did the rounds. I liked that song but his official debut is even better. Produced by Stylaz Fuego (Snoop Dogg and Kelis) and mixed by Brent Kolatalo (Kanye West), "Familiar" is a slick mid-tempo pop tune with just enough R'n'B flavour to keep the urban crowd happy. The video also turned out well (below). Extra points for the cool choreography and pretty lights. "Familiar" is released on the 4th of October. Fingers crossed it's a hit. There might be hope for Selwyn yet!

I like his voice and this song more than anything from Cruz. More importantly, I just listened to Not Worth Your Love and love it!

I didn't know that the VILE attention seeking SLAPPER Cheryl Tweedy was a fan of PTA - who else could the clearly racist anonymous be?

Its an alright track and he looks like a chubby Chris Brown.

By the way, the word verification is the name of one of the most infamous Oirish Drag Queens...

Yeah what's with the racism? Lame.

I think it's a cool song and something different for an Aus artist. I hope it takes off for him.
