Song Of The Day: "Ballare Con Me (Peet Syntax & Alexie Divello Radio Edit)" by Oscar Zia

We've got the musical melting pot of the world this time. First, that dashing fellow is Oscar Zia and guess where he's from?!?! SWEDEN! So this has got to be good right? But wait, he also happens to be a Swedish X Factor Alumni! And like many of the British alumni, Oscar makes some rather great music despite finishing in 8th place. Furthermore, he participated in Let's Dance, a Swedish dancing reality TV show, which means he's got the sick moves that Americans eat up. And if that wasn't enough, Oscar managed to get to the top 10 of Melodifestivalen last year, the same competition that gave us "Busy Doin' Nothin'" by Ace Wilder!!!!

Basically, he's got all the goods to be an amazing international popstar and his first album is pretty listenable. But the best has yet to come, and this remix of his forthcoming single "Ballare Con Me" is a glimpse at what Mr. Zia could do if he but a nice dance beat to some of his music. For those uninitiated in Italian (thanks NYU Italian), Ballare Con Me translates to Dance With Me and reflects Oscar's Italian heritage. The original sounds more like a Spanish guitar-pop jam but Peet Syntax and Alexie Divello have brought the song to the Ibiza dancefloor. So when you mix Sweden, British, Italian, American, Spanish, and Euro dance craziness, we get a ridicumazing jam for the weekend.
