Arguably Martin Solveig‘s biggest career hit, his collaboration with Canadian synth-pop band Dragonette, “Hello”, is sitting comfortably over 60 million plays to date.
The leading track from his fifth studio album, ‘Smash’, its release six years ago led to a surge of mainstream popularity for the French taste maker. Dropping on Mercury Records, is reached number one status in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic and the Netherlands, as well as the US ‘Hot Dance Club Songs’ ranking. Top 10 finishes in ten other countries has helped it reach major sales certification’s in a number of countries.
Featured on three major TV shows and even films, Martin Solveig recruited the talent of Dada Life, Bassjackers and Michael Woods for the official remixes to the hit tracks. Joined by a charismatic music video, in both short and long editions, the overall package of the track was relatively unprecedented from the European scene at the time.
Infectious and catchy, the track really did combine Dragonette’s synth mastery and addictive vocals, with Martin Solveig’s dance music genius. One of the first genuine cross-over successes for the decades, “Hello” is the type of track that carries a status of nostalgia-inducing. One for when it plays, people go back to a time of distinct memories.
