Music Sounds Better with Charles
If we hear that stupid song in the car commercial once again, we'll tear the hair off our arms.
Yo Vegas, the ONLY day that hasn't gone by is your day as a VH1 One Hit Wonder!
Which is why when we heard DJ Charles Schillings, we decided, it is all about his CD "It's About".
Funny what great coasters our Chemical Brothers and Armand Van Helden CDs make now that Papas Got A Brand New Disc.
Charles' CD will be slightly familiar.
* "Don't Rock It" was the tune playing when Charlotte changed the nameplate on her mailbox post-Trey (if you watch Sunday HBO).
* It's Charles' sound at Karl Lagerfeld's A list parties at VIP in Paris. His beat on Lagerfeld's runway shows.
* Him again scoring the Yves Saint Laurent Jazz perfume ad.
* He's also the mastermind behind the "day-time" CD in the Elite Model Look double CD compilation being released in early October, just after the contest finishes in Tunis.
His new CD "It's About" is not perfect. We're not really sure what happened on Track 4 which features some bad rap-wannabe line about "chillin' with my man Charles Schilling out here in Paris." Oy! BUT we'll give him the one bad tune cause Tracks 3 and 5, "Tengo Nada" and "Don't Rock It" are unreal.
We know you secretly listen to .38 Special but save room on your shelf for Charles 'cause 3 lucky HipGuide readers will win a copy of Charles' CD "It's About".(randomly drawn next week).
Charles' web site stinks cause it has no samples, so if you aren't 1 of the lucky 3, you're just going to have to take our word for it and pick it up:
