We present the latest album by star pop musician Mark Forster. We also talk to Electro DJ Alle Farben, get down at festivals with metalcore band Any Given Day and play songs for the Euro 2016.
Mark Forster - the Deutschpop star shines
With four platinum records and a German Music Author Award, Mark Forster's flying high. "Tape" is his latest album. The single "Wir sind gross" is already Germany's unofficial anthem for the Euro 2016 soccer championship.
Alle Farben - Electro goes pop
DJ Frans Zimmer's stage name Alle Farben (all colors) came from his passion for art. His passion for music is greater, as the title of his new album reveals: "Music Is My Best Friend". He brought in guest singers for it.
Any Given Day - Metalcore from the Ruhrpott
High-energy riffs and snarled vocals: Any Given Day brings us metalcore from the Ruhrpott. Their cover of a song by Rihanna helped consolidate a sizable fan base. Now they do pieces from their second album live on stage.
HIT: Kontra K - Ikarus
After planting two albums in the German album charts' top ten, Kontra K has conquered the summit with "Labyrinth". Its tracks get straight to the vocal point. The martial arts fan raps on such virtues as self-discipline and staying drug-free.
TIP: Stereoact - Der Himmel reißt auf
German Schlager meets House. This is the concept that made Stereoact's song "Die immer lacht" (She Always Laughs) a hit. Now the DJ duo from the Czech border are presenting their first album "Tanzansage" and its lead single.
CLASSIC: Sandra - (I’ll Never Be) Maria Magdalena (1985)
In the mid1980s, Sandra made her international breakthrough as a solo artist. Now, she's put the cream of a thirty-year crop into her album "The Very Best of Sandra". Included is, of course, her mega-hit "Maria Magdalena", blessed at the time with the top spot in nine countries.
