Replicant feat. Princess Julia - Drama Addict (12'' Mix) electro disco hi-nrg

electro disco hi-nrg
Princess Julia (born Julia Fodor, 1960) is a British DJ and music writer. She first came to notice in the very early 1980s as part of the short-lived Blitz Kids club scene with the likes of Marc Almond and Boy George.

She achieved mild success and clubland infamy after her appearance in the video for 'Fade to Grey', the hit UK single from Steve Strange's band Visage.

After a stint as a fashion model in the early to mid 1980s, both in London and Tokyo, she started to build a successful career as a club DJ. She was a resident DJ at the legendary Kinky Gerlinky clubnights.

In 2005, pop star Kylie Minogue and her stylist William Baker chose Princess Julia to be part of the stage video for Kylie's successful Showgirl - The Greatest Hits world tour. Julia recreated her Visage video appearance especially for Kylie's live show, "A club section features graphics inspired by i-D magazine, a special film of club legend Princess Julia inspired by the Visage video for "Fade To Grey", and clothes inspired by Katharine Hamnett's iconic slogan t-shirts of the '80's".

After Kylie Minogue's return from illness in 2006, the same video footage was used during Kylie's second Showgirl tour of 2006/2007. Julia's friendship with Kylie continued in 2007, as the two were seen partying together at London's fashionable Boombox club night, as reported on, "Kylie took the role of DJ with her friends William Baker and Princess Julia on Sunday night at Boombox, an established club with a cult following. "

In 2006, other musical collaborations included ex-Shakespear's Sister/Bananarama singer Siobhan Fahey on two songs 'Bad Blood' and 'Pulsatron' which Julia remixed as well as No Bra's underground hit song Munchausen and Readers Wifes' single Nostalgia. She has also collaborated with dance acts such as Punx Souncheck, Larry Tee, Kinky Roland and Riton.

She co-published music paper/fanzine The P.i.X and regularly contributes to fashion website as well being music editor for i-D magazine. She writes a weekly column Revoltage and Reportage for cult publication QX, reviewing clubs and writing interviews on bands and various musical projects.

She continues to DJ, write and currently performs spoken word vocals in improvised, noise band Oral Oral.

"I Want That Man" is a single released in 1989 by Deborah Harry - her first solo single to be released using her Christian name Deborah instead of 'Debbie'.

The track was written and produced by former Thompson Twins members, Alannah Currie and Tom Bailey. It was one of the most successful singles released during Harry's solo career, peaking at number two in Australia, number 13 in the United Kingdom, and number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in the United States.

The video was directed by Mary Lambert.

The song is a combination of late eighties pop music fused with light rock. The campy style of the single pushed it to become one of Harry's most prolific releases. Although it wasn't a global hit, in the U.S. it managed to find success on radio stations, particularly college radio.
