Italian hit producer Gabry Ponte (Eiffel 65) has struck an exciting collab with Dutch DJ/producer MOTi, building a sweet blend of singalong pop with vigorous dance rhythms. ‘Oh La La’ features vocals of Lebanese-Canadian singer Mougleta, turning this track into a unique song, building musical bridges to create feelgood vibes all over the world – out now on Spinnin’ Records.
It’s been quite the ride so far for Gabry Ponte. Producing an international hit single by the end of the 90’s with his band Eiffel 65, the song ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’ turned into a dance classic that’s still played to this day. In the meantime, the Italian DJ/producer kept releasing solo material, always in rhythm with the newest sounds in electronic music.
In 2019 he dropped another worldwide smash with his LUM!X collab ‘Monster’, followed last year by two more hit collabs with LUM!X in the shape of ‘The Passenger’ (along with D.T.E.) and ‘Scare Me’ (along with KSHMR), plus teamups with Timmy Trumpet (co-producing the title track for Timmy’s ‘Mad World’ album) and Galwaro and LIZOT (co-producing the popular cover of ‘Like A Prayer’).
And now, he’s struck another golden collab, joining forces with Amsterdam based artist MOTi, known as a world-renowned producer in both dance, pop and hip hop. He’s delivered instant classics since the early 10’s, from his widely acclaimed Martin Garrix collab ‘Virus’ to the massively supported party tune ‘Up All Night’ (together with R3hab) and last years vocal house gem ‘Push It Right’. Next, to this MOTi has several notable collaborative records on his roster with the likes of Major Lazer, Ty Dolla $ign and Tiësto.
‘Oh La La’Together, the guys know how to drop a beat. ‘Oh La La’ brings a subtle groove with influences from triplet sounds and deep house, featuring a nice wobbly bassline and sweet pop and R&B styled vocals, courtesy of Mougleta. She takes the song next level, as she uses her international flavor (of Lebanese-Canadian origin, born in Dubai, based in Berlin) to create a fusion of oriental influences with western pop sounds.
Mougleta’s musical versatility is noted in such collaboration like Kpop sensation, Oh my Girl and renowned German DJ Kianu Silva on “Rocket Ride”, Topic with “Talk to me” As well as her song “Nice to Meet you” which was included on the soundtrack of the hit ABC network TV show The Baker and the Beauty.
As a result, ‘Oh La La’ sounds like a playful piece of dance music, but crawls under your skin as its tempting, singalong chorus won’t leave you untouched. This is a tune to lift up spirits, using elements of feelgood rave anthems and infectious pop hooks, solely aimed to get you dancing and raise a smile. Gabry Ponte, MOTi and Mougleta have put in their best of abilities, leading to a song that’s going to work its magic every chance it gets.
