Lasgo – Something (Extended Mix) (2001)

EDMclassics | 1 January, 2022

Lasgo were a Belgian electronic music group. The group formed in 1999 and is composed of Jelle Van Dael as the vocalist (after Evi Goffin left in 2008) and Peter Luts & Jef Martens as record producers (the latter replaced founding member Dave McCullen). Peter Luts confirmed on Belgian radio in 2008 that Evi Goffin was not returning to the band, after choosing to become a full-time mother. Luts announced around the same time that he was looking for a new vocalist for the band. Together with Belgian TV station JIMtv, he organized a televised search (in similar fashion to talent shows like Idols) for a new vocalist, that came to pick Van Dael as the singer.

Something” was their debut single and it was first released on 15 June 2001 as the lead single from their debut album, Some Things (2001). It became a hit in the band’s native Belgium, peaking at No. 5 in the Flanders region, and reached the top 10 in several mainland European countries. On 25 February 2002, it was released in the United Kingdom, reaching No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart. It also peaked within the top 40 in the United States. In 2013, the song was re-released with new vocals from Jelle instead of Evi. The remade song also features vocals from British pop singer Taylor Jones.
