NEW YORK (Tracey Miller & Associates, Inc./ www.d-h-t.be) - Newcomers D.H.T.
grab the number eight spot in the country with their smash single "Listen to Your Heart." The Belgian duo -featuring 20 year old singer Edmee Daenen and 28 year old MC/DJ/writer/producer Flor Theeuwes- have taken the US by storm with the first single off their debut album of the same name. The song has also hit No 1 on various "most listened to" charts- including Yahoo's Music Radio
Chart. This is the first top 5 radio hit by a Belgian act since the run of Technotronic in the early 1990's. D.H.T.'s twelve-song CD Listen to Your Heart
(Robbins Entertainment) has already shipped over 120,000 copies after being rushed to stores just weeks ago after the single quickly started climbing the Billboard charts.
Billboard Magazine says "Robbins has always been the little label that could...this time Belgian act D.H.T. is heading for widespread exposure...uptempo treatment comes across refreshing...this song is set to play a major role in creating a soundtrack for the summer" while USA Today calls the song "one of the summer's fastest rising pop tunes" and credits the album for being a good mix of "originals and covers, dance tracks and ballads."
Two videos for "Listen to Your Heart" (one dance and one "unplugged") have been added into rotation on video stations around the country- including VH1 and MTVHits.
Recorded in Belgium, the album Listen to your Heart features twelve tracks including the hit single along with a fresh perspective on the Janis Ian song "At Seventeen," a trance reimaging of Rushlow's "I Can't Be Your Friend," a touching version of Paul Young's "I go Crazy" along with beautiful originals "I Miss You," "My Dream", "Sun," "and more.
After a week of promotional appearances in New York in July, including a performance on Live with Regis & Kelly , D.H.T return to the US again next week for a whirlwind of events including various promotional TV , radio and tour appearances.
