Jewels & Stone’s latest release : DARUSO’s first single

You may not know of Jewels & Stone but Julian Gingell and Barry Stone are the ones of Stock Aitken & Waterman's PWL studios' ex-engineers/mixers that keep their head up above the crowd and since 1993, the two young men have worked together, first as club remixers for Pete Waterman (on Boy Krazy, Lonnie Gordon, Erik or Sybil releases), then as writers/producers/remixers on their own rights, with more or less success..., before working along Almighty Associates or 19 Entertainement on loads of their releases.
I personnally cherish the following ones :
Belvedere Kane
"Never felt as good"
Northern Line "Run for your life" (remix only)
Adam Rickitt "I breathe again" & "The best thing"
Stephen Gately (of Boyzone) "I believe" (remix only)
Sophie Ellis-Bextor "Down with love", "Murder on the dance-floor" (remix only), "Yes sir, I can boogie" &
5ive "Let's dance" (remix only)
Hear'Say "The way to your love" (remix only)
S Club (7) "Don't stop movin'" (remix only) & "Discotek"
Gareth Gates "I've got no self control"
S Club Juniors "One step closer", "Automatic high", "New direction", "Feel the beat" & "Fool no more"
Rachel Stevens "Every little thing"
Stephanie McIntosh "Mistake" (remix only)
Dannii Minogue "Sunrise" & "I can't sleep at night"
Now they've decided to take it to a new level and recruited a female vocalist named Jess Russo to form a eurodance-poptrance act named DARUSO and follow the steps of Cascada and (fingers crossed) chart all around the globe.
Their first single is "Closest thing to heaven" and is already available for download with 7digital here :
Three tracks are available at the worthy price of £0.79 each :
Closest thing to heaven (radio edit) 3:29
Closest thing to heaven (original club mix) 5:13
Closest thing to heaven (ballad version) 3:29
downloadable either in WMA, AAC or MP3 format.

Needless to say I've already bought all three and they're set to be on heavy rotation on my mp3 players .
Another song is able to be listened to on their myspace page (, "Just another dream", and they both makes me want to have a full album CD between my hands very soon...

So I hope you'll all take a minute to listen to their songs ...then,
All you could do is buy them on line that
due to their incredible number of downloads and online club charts, DARUSO can do nothing else but record a full album for a big record company smellin' potential SUCCE$$ and see it released worldwide with same figures as Cascada's first album.

Isn't this a bright perspective ?
Sure it can become soon a reality.
...For Julian & Barry have a real writing talent. Plus, they know how to use studios facilities to record/mix instant-appealing pop-dance records. Jess has a nice, pleasant & strong voice (either working on dance & ballad versions of the song) and as she's very good looking, she can front their group with enough charisma to win them a place on TV channels.

Once I saw a promo CDR of Julian & Barry demo productions for Digger Music on eBay but I didn't win the auction. Oh how I miss it ! I would've loved to hear all these secret jewels that are still sleeping in their studio. They're rumoured to have written & recorded more songs with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Emma Bunton, Gareth Gates, Zoe Birkett or with Cathy Dennis. Their talent cannot stay wasted like this longer now! They need a BIG breakout with DARUSO to get a high value profile on the songwriting/production market and then we'll finally see all this good tunes released for our greatest pleasure... If only!
