  1. Blank & Jones – Cream (All Mixes)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Blank & Jones trance classic Cream gets the updated remix treatment and a release with remastered original versions here with Cream (All Mixes) single. I think it’s time that all of the awesome trance cuts that  were released in the 1990s and on to make a comeback and this is a great release to make that happen.

    Cream was certainly one of the trance cuts I listened to over and over again and when trance was huge. It’s got that excellent energy that was uplifting and euphoric at the same time but never lacked the beats. It was quite the upbeat track to dance to at the clubs. Paul Van Dyk and ATB had remixed Cream but I always listened to the original as it was the version that really worked for me. At the time Paul Van Dyk and ATB had huge hits with For An Angel and 9pm Til I Come.

    Take the gayest song ever and sample it and make a fun upbeat electro disco recording of it utilizing elements of The Weather Girls Paul Jabara written hit song It’s Raining Men and you have a fun track! That’s exactly what Beatfanatic did with Goin Out. It’s from his album Beat A Part which is chock full of electro disco cuts with a heavy 80s influence. My delicious cup of tea. LOL! I love it and have been exploring more and more of Beatfanatics music lately. Beatfanatic’s music is sample heavy as most of his recordings have one hit 80s disco song or another 70s disco cut. This is a true genius producing music from existing cuts.

    Beat A Part

  4. I Wanna Dance (Boy Norty Edit) by The Cool Notes


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 


    If your cup of tea is 80s disco then this remix/edit of I Wanna Dance by The Cool Notes is your new favorite song. I Wanna Dance (Boy Norty Edit) by The Cool Notes from Backstreet Brit Funk Re-Edits EP is the best 80s remix that wasn’t released in the 80s. Such energy it has with a very hi-nrg 80s disco dance flavor. The original song reminds me of anything The Jets released in the 80s as I did not know The Cool Notes. Not sure if they had any success here in the states but I doubt it. They are from the UK from South London and the band was releasing reggae music in the late 70s but moved on to doing soul, funk and dance pop in the 80s.

    But I’m quite lucky to have found this excellent collection called Backstreet Brit Funk compiled by Joey Negro and it’s accompanying EP Backstreet Brit Funk Re-Edits. Loads of tasty 80s grooves that are so worth discovering.

  5. It’s Our Future by Tom Wax Covers AWeX!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Techno Acid classic It’s Our Future by AWeX gets the remake treatment by Tom Wax one half of AWeX himself and I have to say I love this remake. It’s the perfect update for the times and the sound today. Although I’m pretty partial to the original as I have probably overplayed It’s Our Future and countless other similar Techno Acid cuts from that era for example Access by DJ Misjah & DJ Tim (one of my favorite cuts of all time) of electronic music this remake to the AWeX classic It’s Our Future by Tom Wax is pretty darn cool.

    It’s Our Future became so huge that it was the anthem of the Love Parade in Berlin in 1995!

  6. 12 Mile High (JPOD the Beat Chef Remix) by Thunderball


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Those of you that know of Thunderball probably know of the album Scorpio Rising from 2001. Scorpio Rising was the soundtrack to sexy restaurants and cocktail lounges as you’d hear it as the background music to those types of establishments. Scorpio Rising is one of my all time fave albums from the 2000s and one of the best to play at a cocktail party. It’s just perfection and it’s everything that a Thievery Corporation album is not! Sorry guys! But Thunderball’s been making music since Scorpio Rising and their latest album 12 Mile High came out last year and is basically a progression of Scorpio Rising in 2001 then Cinescope in 2004, their unique combination of trip hop sounds with broken beatz, acid jazz, downtempo and future jazz all thrown in for a intoxicating concoction . But the Thunderball guys decided to take that album to the next level by offering up tasty remixes from the hippest remixers around today. Now this is my cup of tea!!

    All the key tracks from 12 Mile High are remixed to the max. My favorite being 12 Mile High (JPOD The Beat Chef Remix) but all the remixes are top notch here with links to check out below.

  7. Free (Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix) by Ultra Nate


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve always loved Ultra Nate as she is a true dance/house music artist that didn’t reach the level of some other similar artists like Crystal Waters or CeCe Peniston but she certainly knows what’s good and she’ll go after it. She was signed to Warner Brothers in the earlier part of the 90s then let go then signed to Strictly Rhythm and it’s at Strictly Rhythm where she achieved most of the her huge success with the very popular Free from her Situation: Critical album.

    Free was HUGE in 97 and there were countless remixes of that huge song but the version that caught on was the Mood II Swing remix. Although Full Intentions was also right up there but there was something about the Mood II Swing version that was just a notch better.

    Well good news there are new remixes for Free by Ultra Nate that were released late last year that are worth writing about. For anyone into Free or Ultra Nate or dance/pop music then you will certainly enjoy this excellent remix by Teo Moss & Daniel Shems. As always I”m a big sucker for new remixes of old songs and this Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix is quite nice in the package of 2010 remixes for Free by Ultra Nate. There’s also a new remix by Bob Sinclar in the package of new 2010 remixes of Free by Ultra Nate. Check them out below. Original Mood II Swing version and new Teo Moss & Daniel Shems Remix and Bob Sinclar Remix.

  8. HORSE MEAT DISCO III


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Horse Meat Disco 3 picks up where Horse Meat Disco 2 left off last year and I’m digging what I hear so far! Horse Meat Disco 3 is a collection of underground disco cuts that you probably have not heard of before but definitely should as these are the disco cuts that really should be the better known ones. On Horse Meat Disco 3 there are several stand out cuts and edits or remakes/remixes of existing ones. Horse Meat Disco 3 kicks off with French trio Belle Epoque and their hit Miss Broadway with an edit here by Gazeebo. A fun poppy disco cut if you haven’t heard it then it’s certainly worthwhile. Skip ahead to Sweet Dynamite by Claudja Barry edited by Todd Terje! Wow I dig this. I love Claudja Barry’s music and this edit by Todd Terje gives Sweet Dynamite a brand new life! Like Bottin did with Lio’s Sage Oil a couple of years back!

    Next up on Horse Meat Disco 3 is Fuzz Against Jazz and their really funky groovy disco number Born Under Puncher (Harvey’s Punch Drunk Mix). It’s a nice beat and I’m totally digging this cut and it’s perfectly fit in order here. What comes up next is a totally funky disco number which is also remixed by Todd Terje – Moon Jocks ‘n’ Prog Rocks by Mungolian Jetset is one awesome cut on here that I had to repeat over and over again. It sounds like it came from the 70s height of disco music but this thing was released last month. I say it’s amazing.

    By now I’m really enjoying Horse Meat Disco 3 as I love the idea of mixing music from today that sounds like disco and dance from the 70s with disco music from the 70s and 80s. It’s great so far!

    Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique’s Downtown is perfectly mixed next into this great mix so far and how can you go wrong with Dimitri From Paris? The guy is a genius and this track, Downtown is quite nice!

    I’m In Love by Yam Who? is a remake of the Sha-Lor classic from the late 80s and it’s great here and I’m In Love definitely deserves the remake treatment as it’s a long lost late 80s dance/house classic. Gosh I can still remember hearing this here in San Francisco back in the late 80s!

    Billie Ray Martin? Yes it’s nice she’s back. Can you remember her in the mid 90s with her hit Your Loving Arms Around Me? Well she’s got great new stuff and this cut Sweet Suburban Disco is a standout. Let’s please get a hit out of this one!

    I think the stand out cut on Horse Meat Disco 3 is You Don’t Know (Horse Meat Disco Remix) by Tambi. This thing is just awesome. I hadn’t heard of Tambi but boy I’m glad I did. You will dig it. Other cuts on Horse Meat Disco 3 include 2 cuts by Sylveseter, Idris Muhammad, The Glimmers (one of my favorite acts as of late) and Two Tons Of Fun.

    Overall a great collection of cuts are represented on Horse Meat Disco 3 and perfectly mixed to perfection by the Horse Meat Disco boys. Worth of owning this great compilation. Preview the tracks below.

  9. Simple Things (Work It Out) (Todd Terje Version) by Shit Robot


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Simple Things (Work It Out) is one of the funniest electro/techno tracks that I’ve heard. I especially love the funny vocals with even funnier lyrics and funniest yet squeals here and there almost reminding me of Prince sung by Ian Svenonius. It’s quite the fun track from Shit Robot off of his album From The Cradle To The Rave. Other great cuts off of From The Cradle To The Rave include Take Em Up (one of my favorites), Losing My Patience, Tuff Enuff? which kind of reminds me of Laidbacks’s 80s hit White Horse and I Got A Feeling. All great cuts and all released as excellent 12″ singles with great remixes. Overall the album has a retro feel to it covering some disco sounds, techno and house and it’s a great first album. And I can’t get enough of the name Shit Robot! It’s just fun!! And that’s what the album is all about!

    Simple Things (Work It Out) (Todd Terje Version) is more upbeat than the whole From The Cradle To The Rave album. Perfectly remixed in disco flavor by Todd Terje and being the fan of Todd Terje I seek out any remixes he does and Simple Things (Work It Out) (Todd Terje Version) clocks in just under 10 minutes. It’s a good work out and great for working out. Perfect nu disco beats with funny vocals by Ian Svenonius.

  10. Danny Tenaglia Covers Front 242 With Headhunter


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Headhunter is one of my all time favorite Industrial tracks if not one of my all time favorite songs ever and to have heard of a remake by Danny Tenaglia in the late 90s was a pretty good surprise from the legendary house music DJ and producer. Headhunter Front 242′s cover song is off of Danny Tenaglia’s Tourism CD and it ends the disc on a very high note. Although Tourism is mostly house vocal house with dashes of progressive thrown in here and there in Danny Tenaglia’s typical deep dark tribaly style (check out Elements on Tourism) that he’s known for but then Headhunter is a slight bit more industrial as it’s a remake of one of the biggest electro industrial songs around and it works great.

    Tourism is chock full of big club hits for Danny Tenaglia. From the opening track Baby, Do You Feel Me? with awesome vocals by Teena Marie, to Elements, Music Is The Answer (Dancin’ & Prancin’ sung by Celeda to Turn Me On, The Better Days being my favorite cut along with Headhunter on Tourism and with excellent vocals by Cevin Fisher and a very deep dark sexy dance beat rocks and still fresh today and Roots (The Sound Of The Drum) all became hits in the club world and landing on the dance charts.

    2 years after Tourism was released Headhunter by Front 242 received the well deserved remix treatment and I must say those remixes are some of the best of Headhunter by Front 242. Of the package of remixes Noisex Remix of Headhunter is my favorite as dark and heavy on the bass beats with a sleazyness to it. I also like Resistance D Mix, Space Frog Mix, Aqualite Mix and finally the Doug Laurent Mix. But the package of remixes is a must, must have for any Front 242 or remix fan!

  12. Top 10 Best Munk Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my favorite acts for about 10 years now, Munk has been creating some of the best dance and electronic music around. His music is mostly disco and electro with touches of house and other cool hip subgenres in the dance world all rolled into some of the best music around. I’ve been following his releases since I first head Androgyn back in 2002 then I was hooked. Later discovering and heard first Disco Clown (Midnight Mike Remix) and later Ce Kul (Francisco Remix) and finally I was really hooked and anticipated more and more releases from one of the best electronic and dance producers out there ever! I’m glad that he doesn’t tire and move on but he produces countless excellent releases and most are excellent. Because of this I had to compile a top ten list of my favorite releases from Munk. Mostly also because his new album The Bird and The Beat has come out recently and more and more releases with countless remixes get released and are definitely worth checking out. Munk is it now!

    What I like most about Munk is because most of his tracks have the retro disco flavor that I love. It’s totally Nu Disco! He doesn’t shy away from that sound but it’s totally now though so you are not going to get Gloria Gaynor or Village People sound here so it’s what’s hip and cool. His releases have a very Euro sound and that’s another reason that I tend to but it’s not cheesy stuff it’s definitely good underground dance and electronic music. If you have not heard of Munk then it’s time you discovered his sound. Check it out below! You will love the tunes!

  13. RuPaul Covers Depeche Mode With People Are People


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Since Depeche Mode came out with an amazing collection of remixes called Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 I just had to share another Depeche Mode cover here and figured this remake of People Are People by RuPaul for the Depeche Mode 80s classic that got me introduced to the band was the one to put up. People are People is one of the rare songs that still sounds good today. Although People Are People is one of their more poppier songs I still love it and always seek out any remixes or remakes of this song. Unfortunately though I have not heard of any official remixes from Depeche Mode themselves and it’s rarely covered too. I hope when Depeche Mode release Remixes 3 they will actually finally remix this song as it deserves it! Yes?

    But then again there’s this pretty darn good club/house remake by RuPaul! RuPaul you say? Well I guess she’s been making music since the mid 90s! This came out in 2005 but I somehow missed it when it came out but later discovered it somehow when I was searching for People Are People. The People Are People (Giuseppe D’s Rutroactive Club Mix) by RuPaul even contains samples of the machine sound effects from the original Depeche Mode version of People Are People. So I give RuPaul some credit for doing this. The original Depeche Mode versions of People Are People is still very special place in my heart. I was a very young teen and discovered this greatest new band Depeche Mode that produced this awesome electronic/synth pop dance music and since then I’ve been hooked on to the sounds of Depeche Mode. But I’m always looking for new versions of old songs and this just does it for me. The original version of People Are People is available on People Are People the album from Depeche Mode and also on Some Great Reward as well as their countless Greatest Hits albums. RuPaul’s version is off of People Are People the single with countless remixes of People Are People, on RuPaul Red Hot and RuPaul ReWorked. Check them out when you get a moment and discover new music!

    Aufstand by Gesaffelstein kicks ass!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the kind of music that you want force feed your everyday average joe that listens to cuntry, rock, pop, music that is overly mass produced shit by the majors.

    I just can’t stop listening to this all techno monster of a recording Aufstand by Gesaffelstein. It’s deep, dark, hard, eerie, sleazy and long mix of beats that takes you on a journey through long tunnels at fast speeds. And it goes on for 8 long minutes. It’s the best techno recording I have heard of since, ah the mid 90s? It’s got to be. Aufstand by Gesaffelstein takes me back to the early 90s when techno was just making a big impact on dance music with recordings by Underworld and those types of guys but this sounds just much more fresh and sonically high quality. The early 90s techno recordings had such a lo-fi quality to them but this track Aufstand by Gessaffelstein and the rest of his tracks on the Conspiracy, Pt. 1 – Single are all top notch. If you like Underworlds Second Toughest In The Infants CD with tracks like Rowla or Juanita/Kiteless/To Dream Of Love or even Dark + Long by Underworld then you will love Gesaffestein and then some. With techno music this good I can’t wait until I hear something new from Gesaffelstein!

    More Gesaffelstein tracks (and remixes he’s done) that are worthy to check out are also listed below. Check out Errance / Crainte EP by Gesaffelstein & The Hacker. I love The Hacker and think this EP is quite nice too.

  15. Behind The Wheel by Playgroup Covers Depeche Mode


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Since Depeche Mode came out with an excellent 3CD remix collection of songs remixed called Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection 1981 – 2011 I wanted to do several posts in the coming days related to other covers or remixes or tracks that sample Depeche Mode’s excellent catalog of electronic synth pop/rock tracks. Since Depeche Mode is one of favorite bands going back to the early 80s I always look for any remixes, covers or anyone sampling their music.

    Playgroup did a pretty nice reinterpretation of Behind The Wheel here almost 10 years ago now during the height of the Electroclash movement along with bands like Miss Kittin & The Hacker, Fischespooner and Ladytron. Behind The Wheel by Playgroup is very similar in sound to the original Depeche Mode version from their Music For The Masses album it just sounds hip and more sonically fresher than from what was on Music For The Masses. Although I love the remixes on Depeche Mode’s Behind The Wheel Maxi Single as there are multiple versions and remixes of both Behind The Wheel and Route 66. The version missing on the Behind The Wheel single is the Behind The Wheel/Route 66 mash-up that I’ve come to love over the years. If you can get your hands on that it’s awesome!

    Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection 1981 – 2011 also contains a new remix of Behind The Wheel by Vince Clarke the once member of Depeche Mode who left Depeche Mode to start Yaz and Erasure.

    Other versions of Depeche Mode’s Behind The Wheel you might like are Behind The Wheel by Maxence Cyrin which completely reinvents Behind The Wheel as a classical piano piece. Worth it highly not only for Behind The Wheel but Maxence Cyrin’s Modern Rhapsodies album also contains classical piano reinterpretations of other well known dance tracks remade in classical piano format. This is not cheesy stuff trust me they are good. Classical Piano versions of Smokebelch by Sabres Of Paradise, Windowlicker by Aphex Twin, Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack, Go by MobyL.F.O. by L.F.O and many more dance cuts reinterpreted by Maxence Cyrin.

    Or you might dig this industrial version of Behind The Wheel by OB1. It’s not industrial rock in no means it’s reminding me of bands from the late 80s/early 90s bands like Front 242 or Frontline Assembly which I quite dig as Depeche Mode’s music lends itself very well to the industrial sound. So I recommend this single by OB1 for their version of Behind The Wheel.

  16. Rope (Deadmau5 Mix) by Foo Fighters


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    By no means am I a fan of Foo Fighters. Sure I might like (keyword like) a couple of their songs here and there but in no way I go out of my way to buy their music. I don’t! It’s just the same rock or alternative song over and over again. No room for originality and that’s what the mainstream folks listen to. Don’t they get tired of this stuff? But when I found out that Deadmau5 remixed Rope their hit from Wasting Light I was there to check it out and listen to it. Now this remix is awesome. Hundred thousand times better than what they have released in it’s original form off of Wasting Light. Ok folks will hate me for what I’m saying but check out both versions and see for yourself. The Deadmau5 remix of Rope by Foo Fighters lends itself perfectly for the song. They actually should have released this version over the original. I guess the record execs felt it’s a pretty darn cool remix to be included in the deluxe edition of Wasting Light. You think? I’m a big big fan of Deadmau5 and to hear that he’s done this amazing remix of a Foo Fighters song it pretty darn cool in my book. It comes to show you that folks are getting tired of the same old rock song over and over again and they need a little remix variety.

    Good, it’s about damn time!

  17. Everybody Be Somebody by Ruffneck Feat Yavahn Samples Bostich by Yello


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Everybody Be Somebody by Ruffneck featuring Yavahn was such a big hit when it came out  in 1995. I remember hearing it the first time thinking boy they sure did a great job sampling Yello with their 80s new wave dance hit Bostich. Bostich being one of my favorite synth, pop, new wave dance songs and recently had heard a techno remix by Joey Beltram back in 1992 off of FFRR’s Only For The Headstrong compilation, Ruffneck’s take on Bostich was fresh new and very clubby!

    Basically if you haven’t heard Everybody Be Somebody it samples the Everybody Be Somebody vocals from Yello’s Bostich track and Yavahn sings the same words over a 4 to the floor house beat. The remixes for Everybody Be Somebody are quite nice too. My Favorite is the Pepermint Jam Remix but the original version still nice it’s a toss up for me between the original and the Peppermint Jam Remix but I also love the Henry Street Mix which adds a bit of a disco flavor, Benji Edit is quite nice, Hani’s Looooong Mix has been given a bit of a tribal treatment and the MAW Remix has a sound of your typical house club tune from the mid 90s. All good though and worth exploring.

    Enjoy!

  18. Depeche Mode – Remixes 2 Collection – 1981 – 2011!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Depeche Mode are back with another excellent remix collection of their greatest hits remixed for todays ears. This is such an excellent release that any Depeche Mode fan or remix fan needs to go out and get this collection. Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection 1981 – 2011. The 3 disc remixes set has one of my all time favorite remixes of any Depeche Mode song ever. That is Higher Love from 1993 from my least favorite Depeche Mode album Songs Of Faith And Devotion. At that time grunge was big so DM decided to go towards a heavy grungy rock sound. Either way Higher Love was remixed by Francois Kevorkian back in 1993 and was included on the In Your Room single. Best thing on there although I do like the In Your Room Jeep Rock Remix which is not on this Depeche Mode Remixes 2 Collection – 1981 – 2011! Glad Higher Love (Adrenaline Mix) is now included on new their Remixes 2 Collection of songs from 1981 – 2011.

    Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 continues where Remixes 81-04 left off. That collection came out in 2004 and it’s certainly an excellent 3 CD collection of cuts from their career up until 2004. Excellent remixes on 81-04 include Photographic (Rex The Dog Remix), Halo (Goldfrapp Remix), Clean (Colder Version) and Nothing (Headcleaner Rock Mix) but also mentioned In Your Room (The Jeep Rock Mix) and that’s on Depeche Mode Remixes 81-04. Last collection focused on Enjoy The Silence with several remixes and a remix single for Enjoy The Silence and this time around they are focusing on another Violator single, Personal Jesus with a remix single to compliment Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11 which are all worthy of exploring if you haven’t already. Both of the singles have longer versions of the remixes that are on the remix collections plus bonus cuts and remixes that are not on the remix collections so they are worth owning. Enjoy!

    Below is the excellent tracklisting for Depeche Mode – Remixes 2: 81-11.

  19. Too Young To Die (Moullinex Remix) by Data MC VS. Nhan & Taan


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I absolutely love this song Too Young To Die by Data MC Vs. Nhan & Taan,  and I can’t stop listening to it. Just a fluke discovery recently by way of Hed Kandi’s Nu Disco: Future Sound Of Disco compilation. One of the best Nu Disco compilations out there ever. It’s full of hit after cool sexy nu disco hit that you wont be able to stop playing. Cool songs and remixes by some of the best new underground electronic artists out there which includes Sebastien Tellier, Marina & The Diamonds, Mercedes, Russ Chimes, Gamble & Burke, Super Red Berry, N.A.S.A. Featuring Kanye West, Lykke Li & Santigold, Treasure Fingers and of course Data MC Vs. Nhan & Taan.

    Too Young To Die by Data MC with a little help from Nhan & Taan is off of Data MC’s excellent album Daily Mirror and it’s one of the stand out cuts. The original is quite excellent on it’s own which is a poppy dance house electronic cut with a nice beat and then the Moullinex Remix is a step above the original. The Moullinex remix is what gives the track the more nu disco feel to it. it’s quite nice and I’m sure you’ll enjoy too. Other cool cuts off of Daily Mirror are Intergalactic Romance, Fever and If I Gave You My Digits (with Lexy & K-Paul). Daily Mirror kind of reminds me of early Prince and the early 90s Pet Shop Boys like the album Very. Cool new music that should definitely be discovered by anyone into electronic and dance music. It’s also time to discover more Moullinex. They are off the excellent German label Gomma!

  20. Never Gonna Reach Me (Hot Toddy Remix) by Crazy P


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Crazy P or if you know them as Crazy Penis is an electronic band from the UK which release soulful, house music with a highly concentrated disco flavor. Since I discovered them several years ago with their album 24 Hour Psychedelic Freakout, I immediately fell in love with their laidback, sexy nu disco sound. I just can’t get enough of that sexy sound.

    Never Gonna Reach Me is off of Crazy P’s excellent album Stop Space Return with influences of early New York City house music and combed with disco and 80s dance and pop music styles with sultry disco diva vocals added in to make for an album you wont stop listening to. The original Never Gonna Reach Me is this very mellow, downtempo early disco sounding cut that you can hear full on real instruments in the song with a very minimal production style. It could thought of as being released in the late 70s or early 80s It’s perfectly situated as the fourth track on Stop Space Return. The Hot Toddy Remix is my favorite version as it’s given a more smoother deep house disco treatment. It’s an almost 10 minute journey to sexy after hours disco land. I just absolutely love it and I’m sure you will too! Hot Toddy have done great remix job on this track.

    If you like Crazy P’s sound you will certainly have to check out Hot Toddy’s releases as well. Late Night Boogie by Hot Toddy is excellent and hey it’s all in the family. Hot Toddy is Chris Todd from Crazy P so figures that he would do the remixing for his own music. Right?

    If you like disco flavored electronic and house music then Stop Space Return is your kind of a release. Check it out and check out some of the other Crazy P releases too. Later by Crazy P is also a good album to start out with the sounds and influences of Crazy p! Enjoy!

  21. Everybody Dance (Chic Inspirational Mix) by Evolution


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Deconstruction was the reliable dance music label from the UK to turn to in the very early 90s! I mean come on they released the huge Black Box singles Everybody, Everybody, I Don’t Know Anybody Else, Strike It Up and of course their huge album Dreamland. But it was more than Black Box. There were huge acts that came from this legendary label. M People, K-Klass, Kylie was there for a bit, Robert Miles, Felix with their huge hit Don’t You Want Me, Hyper Go Go with their hit High, The Grid, N-Joi and of course this little known act and cover of a Chic song Evolution doing Everybody Dance.

    This song Everybody Dance is a very similar remake of the original disco classic by Chic. It’s a bit more uplifting and soulful and a bit infused with a gospel house feel. It’s nothing original but this came out during the disco revival thing and was a pretty big hit for Evolution. Although later in the late 90s and early 2000s Evolutions sound completely changed to a more progressive house sound. Check out their album Unnatural Selection and their hit Walking On Fire. Completely different sound but it was obvious that they would go that direction and signed to John Digweed’s Bedrock label.

  22. Moby Samples Laura Palmer’s Theme For Go!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Yes it has been 20 years ago that I fell in love with that techno sound that always seemed to feature samples from TV shows, films and other sound effects and Moby’s track Go and especially the Woodtick Mix was the track I came back to over and over again to listen to. It was one of the best examples of techno/dane music by an American musician. I was mostly listening to band from Belgium at the time like Lords Of Acid’s, T99′s Anasthacia, Liquid’s Sweet Harmony, DJ’s Take Control by SL2 and of course Prodigy’s Charly! Don’t forget XL Records The First Chapter CD! Check out The Ansaphone by Johnny L! That thing rocks!!!!!!!!! I was listening to that thing over and over! I immediately fell in love with this and I couldn’t wait to hear more from the little known musician named Moby!

    I’ve been a fan since then and always anticipate what’s coming up next from Moby. But the best music he ever released were the ones from the earlier years. Especially cuts like Next Is The E, Move, Drop A Beat, Feeling So Real, Everytime You Touch me, Bring Back My Happiness and so on! Oh those were the days of good old techno dance music. Weren’t they? Well we can check out this 20 year old cut Go (especially the RAINFOREST REMIX) which samples the famous Laura Palmer’s Theme by Angelo Badalamenti from David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and relive those days again. They’ll come back!

  23. Top Ten Best Dance & Electronic Songs May 2011 Part 2


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a great way to wrap up May and jump right into June and warm summer months ahead. This is what’s hot now in dance and electronic dance music. This is the Top Ten Best Dance & Electronic Songs in May 2011 Part 2. There’s so much great dance and electronic music coming out I think pretty soon it’s going to start feeling like 1989/1990 the years before dance and electronic music exploded with rave culture and all that good stuff! One of the biggest cuts I’ve been enjoying for a while now is C’mon by Tiesto/Diplo! It’s one of those very upbeat dance electronic tracks very reminiscent of early techno with vocal samples thrown in! Loving it. It was slow to grow on me at first now I totally dig it! Strange that Tiesto is collaborating with Diplo but hey I love weird collaborations like that! A favorite that’s been around for a while now, Spacer Woman as an original and a cover by Johan Agebjorn & Sally Shapiro has just been rereleased on an excellent new album by Johan Agebjorn called Casablanca Nights. Spacer Woman is one of my all time favorite Italo-Disco songs and since it’s been just rereleased here by Johan Agebjorn and since I’ve been listening to it over and over again I figured it should end up on the Top Ten Best Dance & Electronic Songs in May 2011 part 2 list. Check it out as it’s great if you haven’t hear of it. Sweet Dreams is an excellent remake of the Eurythmics 80s classic synth pop track that’s been on repeat constantly, Tiga’s You Gonna Want Me from about 5 years ago has just been given the new remix treatment by Hey Today! that deserves to be on this list. As well Yeke Yeke is the late 80s Afro pop hit with new remix treatment by Robbie Rivera that’s really been on repeat lately. I was a big fan of the original in the 80s then the Hardfloor remix back in the mid 90s and now this new remix.

    1. C’mon (Original Mix) by Tiesto Vs. Diplo
    2. You Gonna Want Me (Hey Today! Remix) by Tiga
    3. Sweet Dreams by Avicii
    4. U.F.O. (Jean Tonique Aliens Can’t Dance Remix) by DJ EQ

    7. Cinema (Maurizio Gubellini Remix) by Benny Benassi Featuring Gary Go

  24. Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) by Leftfield Is Best Remix Ever?


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    By the time Leftfield’s masterpiece of an electronic dance album Leftism was released in 1995 I had already had the pleasure of hearing several of their earlier singles starting with Not Forgotten all the way back in 1990 to Song Of Life in 1992 to Open Up with John Lydon of Sex Pistols in 1993 just less than 2 years before their amazing debut album Leftism had left a major impression on me and the electronic and dance music culture and since then there has not been as excellent of an album like Leftism. Well there have been but not that many.

    Afro-Left is the second cut off of Leftism and it’s one of those African/electronic tribal tech cuts that’s quite good on it’s own. It’s upbeat but not banging but it’s got a good groove you can get down to. Once you get into the remix Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is when things really get frenetic brimming with electronic energetic XTC.  Afro-Left (Afro-Ride) is 10 minutes of electronic dance music pleasure! It’s the best remix ever made, I think. The frenetic almost drum and bass style beats don’t pick up fast it starts quite slow and dreamy. The remix builds starting with Djum Djum’s singing and chanting then slowly builds up into the upbeat style that I have fallen in love with. If I had to pick the best remix this would be it and I totally love remixes and hear countless remixes over and over again. But this is it. It’s just the bomb! I was happy to have also heard it on the soundtrack to Wipeout 2097 which featured some of the best electronic and dance cuts around 1995/1996.

    Two years later Leftfield released another excellent album called Rhythm & Stealth. Later disappearing off the face of the earth. Well their still around but nothing has been released from them since then. Maybe something for a 20 year reunion?

    If you can get your hands on Leftism do so. It’s not available as a download on iTunes but Amazon has both the download and the CD so snatch it up. If you can get the double disc CD release even better as you have some great additional remixes or versions of cuts from the amazing Leftism album.

    Those of you that know anything about Mylo will know where the name of this website comes from. One of my favorite albums from the 2000′s and perhaps for the last 20 years is the album Destroy Rock And Roll byMylo. Destroy Rock And Roll was chock full of some of the best dance music around. Included excellent cuts like Destroy Rock And RollDrop The PressureMuscle CarsMuscle Car Reform RepriseIn My Arms,Valley Of The DollsParis Four HundredOtto’s Journey and more. The whole album was totally listenable and it still sounds fresh today. Well Mylo and his label Breastfed Records also released other artists likeLinus LovesRadio SlaveRan Shani and Flat Pack which released this just OK remake of a classic Guns N’ Roses classic songs Sweet Child O’ Mine by Flat Pack. I was very excited to hear this remake when it first came out in 2005 but it just wasn’t strong. Fortunately though it’s saved by the Mylo Remix which is here. What do you think? Good, bad?  If you don’t like it and don’t know anything about Mylo then head over here and check out some awesome Mylo cuts now and preview Destroy Rock And Roll!
