YOKO ONO Climbs To Top 5 On The Billboard Club Play Charts

YOKO ONO continues to keep her fingers on the pulse of underground and commercial dance music with her new single, “GIVE ME SOMETHING” (THE REMIXES). Currently #4 (with a bullet) on the Billboard Club Play Chart (issue date: 03/27/2010), it is the latest offering in the pioneering avant-garde icon’s acclaimed remix series, that has spawned 5 #1 dance singles: “I’M NOT GETTING ENOUGH”, “GIVE PEACE A CHANCE”, “NO NO NO”, “EVERYMAN / EVERYWOMAN” and her seminal “WALKING ON THIN ICE”.

Since 2001, Yoko’s alter-electronic ego, ONO, has been pumping out revamped reworks of classics from her vast catalog for a new digital generation. Partnering with cutting edge producers and collaborators such as FLAMING LIPS, PET SHOP BOYS, BASEMENT JAXX, DANNY TENAGLIA, SPIRITUALIZED, CSS, FELIX DA HOUSECAT, ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS and PEACHES, she has ingeniously added chart-topping dance-music heroine to her renowned status as controversial performance-art innovator and punk rock pioneer.

On the brilliant “Give Me Something” (originally taken from John and Yoko’s Grammy Award winning 1980 masterpiece DOUBLE FANTASY), ONO taps RICHARD MOREL, DAVE AUDE, RALPHI ROSARIO, ROBERTO RODRIGUEZSTONEBRIDGE, SPARKS, JUNIOR BOYS, ALEX TRAXX (and others) to deliver compelling interpretations for the 21st Century.

Slated as a green release (digital, no materials used or abused) later this month (March 2010) on MIND TRAIN / TWISTED Records, “GIVE ME SOMETHING” (THE REMIXES) is another irresistible reinvention from the timeless visionary, who continues to be a major influential force on the cultural landscape.
