Allovers is a duet of two brothers - Michail Popov and Ilya Popov - who turned out to be brothers not only by blood, but also by the melodies of their souls. These young men used to go separate ways towards the world of electronic music. They started listening to music and composing it in early childhood. Their parents were fond of various musical genres from hard rock to disco. Michail - the elder brother - was a great fan of diverse musicians and performers, such as Queen / Pink Floyd / T-Rex / The Beatles / Boney M / Paul Mauriat / Barry White. Then he began to listen to electronic dance music that appeared in Russia in the 90-s, and soon became a DJ at school parties. His companion - DJ Oll - was so inspired by computer-aided music and methods of its creation that he offered Michail to make a duet. Thus, project Allovers released the first tracks in 1999. In 2001 the first album of the project Allovers was released on the Moscow label Format Music. The name of the album was All Around the Sound. The music of this album was used in soundtracks for some popular TV series. Ilya- the younger brother - graduated from one of Samara music schools specializing in playing the piano. At school he was inspired by the musical experiments of his elder brother. He also studied playing the guitar by himself. At that period he started composing music. Later Ilya improved his skills of arranger, composer and performer in some electro-pop and trip-hop projects. In 2007 Michail and Ilya decided to work together in order to add some melody to the techno sound of Allovers.
The first release of the renewed duet took place in 2009. The track entitled Special 4 was released on the famous label Pesto. Then Allovers made a series of remixes released on such labels as Gotta Keep Faith, Beats4Life, Open Bar, Tall House Digital. Now the young men are working on their new album.

Warm, velvety and sultry are but a few choice words that accurately describe the voice of singer/songwriter & Neo-soul diva, Lisa Shaw. With a solid career spanning nearly two decades, this Toronto native has seen 2 full-length solo albums on Naked Music/Astralwerks and Salted Music as well as dozens of featured-artist singles the with some of the best producers in the genre, enchanting listeners across the globe at all hours of the day and night.
It all began in her Canadian home where her father and brother, both djs, would play styles that would wittingly influence her repertoire, namely Reggae, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Folk, Rock, Disco, and New Wave. She also remembers being enthralled by performances of Sister Sledge, Chic, and Kool & the Gang, all of whose live shows she'd seen a number of times as a child. She credits them in a recent Straight (Magazine).com profile when asked about her songwriting by stating, "When I first started writing with house producers, I approached it more from a singer-songwriter point of view. If you think about the disco era and groups like Sister Sledge or Chic, they were doing soul records, but it was dance music at the same time. That's what I wanted..."
As a young adult she took a leisure trip to New York and never looked back. With her strong ideology in hand, she dove right into singing and performing, and was quickly embraced by the city's underground electronic community. In 1995 she released her first single written by DJ Smash, "Makin' Love Makin' Music", on New Breed Records. Other independent labels also featured her vocals such as Dj Wally and Swingsett's "Dog Leg Left" on Ubiquity Records, and her first major hit in the UK was, "If I Could" on Sirkus Records. A few years later she teamed up with Jay Denes, Dave Boonshoft, and Bruno Ybarra of Naked Music Recordings, the New York-based record label credited as defining a musical era by breaking some of the greatest Deep House & soulful sounds of the late 90's. Her writing partner and producer Dave Warrin collaborated with Jay Denes to create, "You Are Love" as well as one of her most popular songs, "Always", which earned her such global acclaim that even the Pop Queen Madonna mentioned the song as being, so cool in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine in 2001. Around that time, Naked merged with now mega-imprint Astralwerks Records, which helped propel her to the top of the electronic music heap. In 2002, Lisa joined Warrin and Denes to form Lovetronic, scoring another legendary Naked Music Deep House hit with "You Are Love." In 2003 Naked/Astralwerks released her debut solo album Cherry with producers and co-writers Jay Denes, Dave Warrin, and Eric Stamile. Lisa continues to perform popular songs from that album to this day.
In the years that followed, Lisa would see herself collaborating with known producers Fred Everything, Scuba, Miguel Migs, Ethan White from acclaimed electronic outfit Tortured Soul, and others. They released singles on prominent electronic labels such as OM, Wave, Large, Salted and Flower, but it wouldn't be until 2009 that she would see her second full length solo album, Free. Released on Migs' Salted Music, this album was a healthy mix of styles ranging from the soulful and vibey "Feel" & "All Night High," to the sexy downtempo gems "Honey" & "Better Days" to all out floor-fillers "Music In You" and one of her most requested songs to date, "Like I Want To". Riding off the success of the album, Lisa toured from Rio to Jo'burg to Bali to Dubai, and just about every other major city on the planet. She's been featured on albums with King Britt and Q-Burns the Abstract Message and the requests for collaborations continue to ensue. More recently, her exposure led to songs with producers Scott Hardkiss (RIP), Hideo Kobayashi, Julius Papp, Nathan G, and ATFC. She's coming full force in 2014 on joint ventures with The Lovebirds for a tune on super UK powerhouse label Defected, and with Grammy Nominated Remixer Andy Caldwell forthcoming on legendary Nettwerk Records, and others to come. From her humble beginnings and classic-genre influences, Lisa Shaw's music has truly evolved and continues to be featured on styles ranging from Deep & Soulful House, Downtempo, Drum & Bass and Broken Beat. Her songs appear on countless compilations so much so that she's become a virtual "house-hold" name. Presently, Lisa tours solo as well as with dj/ producer Miguel Migs at many of their massive Salted events all over the USA. Many will say she's made her mark, and by many standards she certainly has, but in no uncertain terms is she done. Fortunately for her as well as her fans, she has no intention of stopping the music.
