Young Parisian Martin Solveig revisits the UK charts with a worthy follow up to Rocking Music - using 65 year old vocalist Elmer 'Lee' Fields.

Martin Solveig, the 27 year old Parisian who revisits the UK and this time brings with him his third single "Everybody". This track is already expected to achieve much more than his previous exceptional works by crossing over from his traditional dance inspired background to a much wider musical audience. Support is displayed on all sides from Radio One to XFM. Specialist Dance authority Pete Tong has aired this track no less than eight times to date including making it his Essential New Single. On the flip side more encouraging support comes from the daytime broadcaster Jo Whiley who made 'Everybody' her single of the week with 5 consecutive plays. The final icing on the cake was XFM's James Hyman enthusiastically announcing it was his Friday Foamer. This track seems to be appealing to all music aficionados.

Martin Solveig already a household name in France is now becoming ever more familiar on this side of the channel. Martin is still riding the wave from his top 40 charting, trend setting and innovative sounding 'Rocking Music' which contained more than just a little Justin Timberlake-esque inspired beats and vocals. Martin also has a large fan base cultivated by his international DJ sets and produces alongside other French music luminaries such as DJ Gregory, Claude Monnet, Bob Sinclar and Julien Jabre.

Everybody can be described as 'a shattering slice of rocky attitude', featuring the vocals of 65 Yr old U.S based Elmer 'lee' Fields which is fast bedding itself as a defining moment in this years popular releases. This track is hugely appealing with its James Brown meets Mick Jagger vocal that sounds like it has stepped clean out of a Gap TV Advert. This comes upfront of his new album 'Hedonist' which will surely set the airwaves alight in Martins home country of France and here in the UK.

'Hedonist' the Album is due to drop in September on Defected Records. Video serviced to TV w/c 20/6
