Now he makes it 3 number ones in a row from his new Can’t Get Enough album, moving from 2 to 1 on all the UK upfront club charts with new single Freak On.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ll be bringing in Sharam from Deep Dish all the way from Washington DC. From LA to Lebanon they do over a 100 gigs a year.
