Former bassline exponents Platnum have decided to hang up their bass-heavy roots to take on a new venture - to become your new favourite pop group. Teaming up with Black Eyed Peas alumni DJ Poet on production duties, the Mancunian trio are set to light up the pop charts in 2012 with their energetic take on the dance-pop genre that has already taken the charts by storm the world over.
'Solar System' is the first single from the upcoming Lost In The Music debut album from the trio, released through All In Recordings. The group first became to people's attentions with 'Over the Heartache' - the huge bass-heavy wobble of a love song that was first released in 2007. It then went on to become one of the most played Bassline tracks of all time and still gets played regularly at certain club nights. This early underground success was eclipsed in 2008 when Platnum crashed into the UK singles chart's top 3 with 'What's It Gonna B' (feat. H "Two" O), scored a top 15 with club classic 'Love Shy (Thinking About You).
Now they are back again and with backing from the likes of Tulisa Contostavlos and members of the Black Eyed Peas then you can be sure to expect even bigger things from the trio in the near future.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
