Here you can read the great review of Let Me Do Your Time by Gonzalo Arzamendi, the CEO of Arzuk Productions.
“This is a well composed melody with a great dance beat, clear and well tune vocals with great harmonies, excellent base. This song poses a strong structure with a well defined line, excellent rhythm easy to follow, a real and excited experience for the listener. Let Me Do Your time grabs you attention from the beginning to the end with the well performed mix, this is a song in my opinion that you must to add to your collection”.
I send many thanks to Gonzalo Arzamendi for a great review and for giving both me and my band Sorriso this great opportunity!
In July it was Season finale of Arzuk Artist Contest. We were 10 bands from USA, Canada, Japan and only 2 bands from Europe. These 2 European bands were my Italian/Swedish band Sorriso with Special Friend and I as a solo artist with Let Me Do Your Time.
It became a very exciting and tie contest. Fans could vote for their favourite artist by phone, poll and email once a day during one week. It was a very tie contest till the end.
I became number 2 with Let Me Do Your Time only 48 votes after number 1! Sorriso became #3 with Special Friend.
I want to thank once again all my fans for voting! Big thanks to Gonzalo Arzamendi for giving me and my band this opportunity and for all great support! Big thanks also to our promoter Jason Boner from Liverpool that did a great job gathering votes!
Sorriso’s new single Special Friend has turned out to be a success. Radio producers from different countries give comments like “I can’t wait to play this track” or “This is a successfull track”.
Sorriso was The Arzuk Artist of The Week in Ridgecrest California 21st to 27th April 2011 . Maini and John want to thank Arzuk Productions for giving this great opportunity.
