Basshunter is back this summer with his second UK release, âAll I Ever Wantedâ. The eagerly anticipated follow up to the No.1 smash âNow Youâre Goneâ will be released via hot new label HARD2BEAT on July 7th.
The ultimate bass creator and Europeâs most in-demand DJ is ready to take over the UK charts for a second time this year with the release of an English version of his European top ten hit âDotaâ. With re-worked English vocals, âAll I Ever Wantedâ is certain to follow in the footsteps of his hugely successful debut single âNow Youâre Goneâ.
Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter, began his music career in 1999 when he started to produce music with a little help from the computer programme âFruityloopsâ. His demos began to spread from his native Sweden and were soon being heard by thousands in clubs throughout Europe.
After signing a record deal in 2006, his first single âBoten Annaâ was an instant hit, securing the No.1 slot in 8 European countries and making him the fastest selling artist in Sweden since Abba in the process. A thumping Eurodance smash, Basshunter re-worked the single and recorded it in English, the end result being released in January 2008 as âNow Youâre Goneâ. The dance track shot to No.1 where it remained for 5 consecutive weeks and is the biggest selling single in the UK this year to date, selling over 400,000 copies.
The new video for âAll I Ever Wantedâ will feature Aylar and Lucas who also starred in the âNow Youâre Goneâ promo, and follows both the â3 Weeks Laterâ¦â and âLast Nightâ¦â webisodes. The storyline is taken on in the new video and sees the couple taken to sunnier climes, being set amongst the hot clubs and nightlife of a holiday resort. The vibe is sexy and free flowing with a sense of fun. As the video unfolds, Lucas is charmed by another girl in a club, leading Aylar to leave abruptly with Lucas searching the club for her. Basshunter will feature in the video as the DJ playing to the crowd. With more than 30 million views of the original video to date the new promo is sure to generate huge interest across Europe.
With âAll I Ever Wantedâ being released just in time for the summer, Basshunterâs hold over the dancefloors of Europe is set to continue. With his electronic beats and distinctive vocals, âAll I Ever Wantedâ promises to be the sound of summer â08.
