Perez Hilton presents Pop Up! #1
by Various Artists
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Opus Label, LLC
We can't believe we're going to say this, but Perez Hilton is so ... tasteful. Well, at least the Queen of Media's curated a very solid selection of tracks here. His first official tastemaker comp sounds like a party we'd like to attend: VanJess works an old-school Rihanna groove, and Alphabeat goes full-on '80s pop. And the beats! Revel in the slip'n'slide production helmed by Estonia's resident weirdo, Kerli. And the sass! Even the Cataracs get shady and Kat Graham is a fierceness to be reckoned with. Things get a little after-hours-monotonous by the end, but all in all, a fabulous affair.
