"Leana--Dance With A Stranger"

Rather marvelous remix from Mike Rizzo on the debut single from Leana punches out a magnificent Circuit-styled romp. Rizzo's Global Factory Club Mix is just a monster with its driving beat and the almost Flamenco edge that Rizzo adds to the percussion, which then explodes with excitement at the chorus. Eric Kupper's mix is darker yet prettier as it adds in a neatly effective vocoder effect to the background during the chorus along with gracefully blipping synth lines that bring a bittersweet edge to the song. Chris Cox goes for more of a chugging Tribal production on his Club Anthem mix, which is perhaps the least powerful of this mix set though the massive drum builds are notable and will appeal to fans of his recent mixes or of his earlier work with Thunderpuss. So with the Mike Rizzo mix perfect for peaktime play and the Kupper mix the noteworthy runner-up for warm ups and cool downs, "Dance With A Stranger" is a solid winner all round. - dancemusic.about.

"Soundwaves--Armand Van Helden, Jacques Lu Cont, Juliet, Lola and Leana"

Two others who hew closer to the dirty-blond, seductive-looking norm are also riding high right now, both with sex-positive songs that are lyrically very similar. Both ''No Strings'' by Lola and ''Dance with a Stranger'' by Leana are perfect Club Play tracks. Leana, the ''Swedish Diva'' -- the name of her L.A.-based record label -- sings, ''Just one dance with a stranger, I don't need to know any numbers or names.'' And just like that her song has been decreed, no joke, the Official Stockholm Pride Song 2005. She's performing this weekend at that city's Pride celebration.

Dance With A Stranger--#9 Billboard Dance Chart, #5 DJ Times and Official Song of 2005 (Stockholm Pride).


Feeling a bit camera shy


Leana’s first single release, Dance With A Stranger, went straight to Billboard # 1 Break Outs for Hot Dance Club Play and recently reached #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart. It is currently #5 on DJ Times National Crossover/Dance Chart.

A companion video for the song was directed by Grammy-nominated Gustavo Garzon, well-known for his Latin music videos (Ricky Martin, Shakira, Paula Rubio) and can be viewed at www.leana.com.

In her native Sweden, Stockholm Pride chose Dance With A Stranger as the song of 2005 and Leana as the artist of the year. Leana and her label Swedish Diva Records recently signed a distribution agreement with Universal Sweden.

In support of her upcoming album, Faith In Myself, Leana is currently performing at clubs like The Roxy and Key Club on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.
