‘..CONTACT’ SPORTS

Sharleen Spiteri, N'Dea Davenport and Armand Van Helden all appear...

SHARLEEN SPITERI and ex-Brand New Heavies vocalist N’DEA DAVENPORT have contributed to the forthcoming album from NEW YORK house DJ ROGER SANCHEZ.

The DJ has also drawn on the talent of Armand Van Helden and rising rap star Coolys Hatbox for the album, ‘First Contact’, which has taken two- and-a-half years to make.

But speaking to [url=]www.muzikweekly.com in Ibiza, where he has a residency at Gatecrasher at Pacha, he revealed that it is finally nearing completion: “”It’ll be finished within the next couple of months,” he revealed. “It’s a product of the last two-and-a-half years of my life, so it’s mainly autobiographical.”

He also promised that it would be a hard-hitting record. “It’s nasty. I wanted this album to have a dark side.” Set for an autumn release on Armed / Columbia, ‘First Contact’ will also feature the hit single ‘I Never Knew’.
