IDM'S DUO JA I TI RELEASED THEIR FIRST SINGLE "OGLEDALCE"
As we announced few weeks ago, IDM's duo Ja i Ti (Jana Valdevit and Tin Ostreš) officially released their first single "Ogledalce".
The song, inspired by the eternal theme of human stupidity and misunderstandings, has been composed by Jana Valdevit, in a moment of her creative madness in her family basement, while she was getting some rest of the serious musical works, while Tin Ostreš wrote the lyrics.
In recording this creative madness, Jana and Tin got a little help from their friends - Mario Rašić on contrabass and Ivan Božanić on slide guitar.

COLLABORATION BETWEEN MICK HUCKNALL (SIMPLY RED) AND IDM'S DUO PLAYONE
In their long-lasting career, one of the most popular groups of the 20th century, Simply Red, have never made a Christmas song... until now. Their frontman Mick Hucknall has written a song "Happy this Christmas" which is about to be launched worldwide.
After Mick heard the remix of the single "Take it to the roof", produced by Darko Juranović D'Knock and DJ Fresh Jay (Playone) in cooperation with IDM's producer Zvonimir Dusper Dus , he decided to hire the guys for the club version of his song "Happy this Christmas!".
Besides Playone, the second version of the song has been remixed by Bimbo Jones, a well known production team, famous for their remixes of Lady Gaga, Pink, Janet Jackson, Usher, Annie Lenox and others.
This is just the beginning of the worldwide success of the duo Playone: their promo teams Svijet Produkcije and Oziris, which are in charge of placing their work into the global markets, already announced that Playone have started preparing the remixes for Simple Minds as well as for some other well known artists.

BARBARA ORBISON, WIDOW OF ROCK LEGEND ROY ORBISON, DIES AT 61
It is with sad and heavy heart we announce the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Barbara Orbison, who passed away after a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer. Barbara was diagnosed with the disease in April and was very optimistic about her recovery, but unfortunately, she lost her battle and passed away on December 6 in the USC Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Barbara and Roy met during his English tour in 1968, when she was only 17. The couple married only a year after and the relationship between them stayed strong till the last day of their lives. They kept devoted and enduring love affair, ultimately passing away on the same day, 23 years apart.
It was her who helped her husband rebuild his life after a string of personal tragedies, becoming a force behind his musical resurgence in the 1980s and, after his death, working relentlessly to burnish his legacy.
Nevertheless, Barbara was way more that just a supportive wife, she was a great and strong business woman, who contributed a lot to the legend of Roy Orbison and to music industry in general.
Her Still Working Music publishing company has consistently represented some of the industry’s most successful songwriters and was recently awarded BMI’S 2010 Song of the Year for Taylor Swift’s “You Belong to Me.”
Barbara, we will miss you and we hope you're now with your Roy somewhere "on Blue Bayou."
