Following “Watch Out,” Alex released “I’m a DJ” in 2008, which was a massive hit across club charts worldwide. In 2009, Alex gave the Joan Jett’s classic “I Love Rock’n’Roll” the full electro-house treatment. “I Love Rock’n’Roll” was a gigantic success worldwide, particularly in France where it was released on Bob Sinclar’s label, Yellow. In 2010 Alex smashed it again, going to number 10 in the UK singles sales chart with “I’m in Love (I Wanna Do It).” The song got huge airplay worldwide and sat at number 1 on the Billboard Dance airplay charts for four weeks in a row in the U.S. In 2011, Alex released “What a Feeling” featuring Kelly Rowland, which went to number 6 in the UK singles sales chart and received massive radio airplay worldwide.
Alex Gaudino Releases New Single
“I Don’t Wanna Dance”
Featuring Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas
Available Today on Ultra Music
Having found acclaimed European success with 2007 and 2008 smash hits “Destination Calabria”and “Watch Out”, Alex Gaudino has rapidly built up a reputation as “One of the most prolific producers in Italy,” or at least those are the words of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong. His most recent accomplishment is collaborating with The Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo for the high energy new single “I Don’t Wanna Dance” just released yesterday, June 19, 2012, on Ultra Music. This single is the first in a series of singles that will be released in anticipation of his full-length LP, which is due to be released at the end of the summer.
Alex comments on the collaboration: “I met Taboo at a festival in Spain where we were both DJing. We hit it off immediately and decided we wanted to work together. I sent him a beat and he wrote the verses and got Taio Cruz to write the hook. Amazing. I went to his home studio in LA to finalize the track and the atmosphere was magical. It was like we’d known each other all our lives and the creative buzz was awesome.”
Alex has rapidly become the chief spokesman for Italian disco and his music reflects all that is fresh and vibrant about house music right now. Still, he is able to inject a savvy and twisted elegance into the aesthetics of being a superstar DJ.
The multi-talented and exceptionally stylish Jaime Gomez, also known to his bandmates and fans as “Taboo” is not just a member of the global chart-topping sensation, The Black Eyed Peas, he is also quickly becoming a global DJ sensation. Currently working on his debut solo album, Taboo’s music incorporates his love for his Latino roots alongside his passion for beat-driven dance music with rhythms that get the whole room moving.
