  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.

  2. Plastic Dreams by Jaydee Remixes!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Jaydee’s Plastic Dreams is an early 90s tribal trance classic. IT came out with a bang in 1992 and was around for quite sometime. It was one of those early trance tracks that you just couldn’t get enough of. You know Stella by Jam And Spoon, The Age Of Love by The Age Of Love and Plastic Dreams by Jaydee! Before For An Angel by Paul Van Dyk came onto the scene and brought trance to the masses. Then later on in the 90s and the 2000s countless new remixes were commissioned so to this day Plastic Dreams is one of those rare electronic and dance tracks that will never be forgotten about and will continue to receive the remix treatment. The original 1992 version still is classic for me as it has that repetitive ongoing euphoric tribal groove that just wont stop. It’s perfect on extacy. LOL I’m not recommending that you go and dance to this track while you take some E but sure was fun back in the day.

    Anyway fast forward to 2011 and new remixes have been released and they are pretty darn good while keeping the spirit of the original Plastic Dreams by Jaydee. But guess what there were remixes of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee released in 2004 as well that are worth noting.

    One of my favorite remixes of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee is the Plastic Dreams (Andrea Doria “Is It Breaks?” Remix) as that thing kicks like a mule. Oh wait that’s another song but you know what I mean. If you don’t know Andrea Doria then you should check out Bucci Bag!

    In the collection of Plastic Dreams Remixes from 2011 my favorite remix is a tie with Plastic Dreams (Dino Lenny & Amnesia Remix) and Plastic Dreams (Housebangerz feat. Mc Joe Remix). I must say though overall the remixes from 2011 are more along the line of the original Plastic Dreams versus the 2004 Remixes collection of Plastic Dreams by Jaydee which were more banging and big beats. What do you think?

  3. 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.

    2. You Gonna Want Me (Hey Today! Remix) by Tiga
    3. Sweet Dreams by Avicii

  4. Star 69 (Thomas Gold Remix) by Fatboy Slim


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    New remixes of old dance and electronic tracks are my cup of tea! And when I heard about this new remix of Star 69 by Fatboy Slim I was first in line to check it out and I have to say it’s pretty darn good. Love the long breakdowns and big ass beats withe the lyrics that we have come to love from the original Star 69 track! What The Fuck! This new remix came out last year for the 10th anniversary of the original release of Star 69 and was originally on the Fatboy Slim album Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars. Timo Maas had had remixed Star 69 in 2000 as part of the single along with DJ Gotfather and X-Press 2 and I think this new Thomas Gold Remix is just as good if not better. The Timo Maas remix still hold up today and is worth checking out. This new remix is certainly in the style of what’s being played in the clubs today and it’s a fusion of house and electro beats. I

    I’m sure this one of those cuts that is definitely one that is definitely on heavy rotation. More updated Fatboy Slim remixes please?

  5. Beachball (Chris Lake Remix) by Nalin & Kane


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Beachball by Nalin & Kane was such a huge trance hit in the mid to late 90s! Especially when it was remixed and repackaged with DJ Icey remixes in 1999. That track blew up everywhere. It was the kind of euphoric trance track that you can take ex on and dance all night to. It was one of my favorites back then as I overplayed it along with 9PM (Til I Come) by ATB and many many others. Trance was big, so big back then and there were some amazing trance releases that I enjoyed. The days of trance faded away in the early 2000′s though and along with that went this great track Beachball by Nalin & Kane. But wait there are new remixes now! This Chris Lake remix takes me back to those party days of the late 90s and relives those times with an excellent update. This thing is quite good as it moves you along to a nice updated big electro beat. I actually really like the Chris Lake style and sound and was happy to have come across this remix of Beachball by Chris Lake. Check out both the original classic and the new Chris Lake remix below. And check out the rest of the 2010 remixes here.

  6. Le Voie Le Soleil Remixes by Subliminal Cuts


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my all time favorite euphoric house/trance classics is Le Voie Le Soleil by Subliminal Cuts. The original still sounds fresh today and when I play it I can relive the days of total electronic, dance music bliss in the 90s! This was classic when it came out and I still love it. Le Voice Le Soleil has had several releases back in the 90s the first time in 1994 with a Way Out West Summer Of Love Remix as well as a Gems For Jem Remix. Remember Gems For Jem? Probably not! They have this handbag house hit called Lifting Me Higher but that’s another story. To be honest the Gem For Jems remix of Le Voie Le Soliel is not my favorite. Two years later it got rereleased with an updated progressive house remix by Way Out West and a really fun acid style Itchy & Scratchy Remix and this when I discovered Le Voie Le Soleil and became a fan of this classic track since then. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to the original version, the Itchy & Scratchy Remix and the the Way Out West 1996 Club Mix. All three are excellent. Subliminal Cuts is Patrick Prins from Holland who is known for such dance classics as La Luna and Bits And Pieces. Check those out if you haven’t heard them.

  7. Hablando (Dub Mix) by Vandalism & Sampled by In-Grid


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of Hablando by Ramirez on Journey’s By DJ Paul Oakenfold CD way back in 1994. It’s that building dreamy progressive trance that once you hear you’ll get caught up in it’s magic euphoric sounds and not want to stop listening to it. The Paul Oakenfold mix was pretty darn good and I’d listen to the whole thing and start over again. So I loved this mix and I loved Hablando by Ramirez.

    So then we have a remake here by Vandalism. It’s quite similar but lot more clubby. Gone are the dreamy quality of the original but made quite more upbeat and more electro. Vandalism have just adapted the classic trance track to todays ears. It works for clubs and driving in cars. It’s an all classic trance cut waiting to be made and finally it’s been brought back to life.

    Funny thing was I recently downloaded the new album by In-Grid. Ok I do like my pop dance music and noticed that Le Dragueur by In-Grid has a sample of the classic Ramirez track Hablando. This I absolutely love as they’ve taken a portion of the most famous part from Hablando and incorporated it into it’s own original song. Le Dragueur off of the album Passion by In-Grid. Enjoy all three!

  8. Feel It In My Bones (Marcus Schossow Remix) by Tiesto Feat. Tegan And Sara


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a nice track that I’ve been enjoying the last couple of months. I love the fact that Tiesto did this with Tegan And Sara. I think more and more collaborations like this should happen and more electronic/club/dance music will climb up the stupid American pop charts. The remix to Feel It In My Bones is alright. It’s been given the uplifting vocal trance treatment bordering on progressive house. I dig it and I’m glad they kept the vocals in there. What do you think?

    Original version off of the Tiesto album Kaleidoscope. Worth owning!

  9. Rapture (Avicii New Generation Extended Mix) by Nadia Ali


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Rapture came from nowhere in 2001 to become a huge club hit for Iio and I still remember to this day how everyone was humming that ladadida part of the song. It was more on the pop end of electronic, dance and club music but I still loved it. It’s nice to know that Nadia Ali has now gone solo and released two great remix songs albums with loads of cool new remixes of songs. There is also a new remixed version of Rapture remixed by Avicii which has been given the updated treatment to accommodate todays generation! The albums are called Queen Of Clubs Trilogy: Onyx Edition and Queen Of Clubs Trilogy: Ruby Edition which I highly recommend for anyone who was a fan of Rapture (Tastes So Sweet) by Iio or anyone into dance and electronic club music.

  10. Hypocrisy (John Digweed & Nick Muir Remix) by Abe Duque


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a case where I love the original just as much as the remix that John Digweed & Nick Muir have concocted. The original is deep dark and very tribal sounding. The remix takes me back to Global Underground mix CD series territory when big mega clubs were huge and folks would go to dance all night long. I’m loving both versions and I think it’s worth knowing more about this guy Abe Duque. The original is taken from the Don’t Be So Mean album from last year.

  12. Children (Tilt’s Courtyard Mix) by Tilt Covers Robert Miles


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ok I have to admit I was a fan of Children by Robert Miles when it first came out but it soon became overplayed and too pop cheesy. So I forgot about it real quick. 3 years later I noticed Tilt remaking the Robert Miles dream trance hit so I was curious to check it out. To my surprise it was pretty darn cool an awesome progressive trance release from one of my fave trance acts in the late 90s. Tilt was praised by many of the top DJs from the UK including Paul Oakenfold, Sasha and John Digweed.

    In addition to Children, Tilt had several other trance releases including I Dream, Invisible, Butterfly, Rendevouz and What’s This. All some of my fave trance cuts back in the day and definitely worth checking out.

    I still think this version of Children is the superior one over both. I especially love the cheesy Jason Voorhees/Friday The 13th sound effects added in this track. Ok it’s certainly cheesy but in a cool kind of way. Check out both below. The original Rober Miles version which became a worldwide hit and the the trance cover by Tilt in 1999. What do you think?

    This came out in the early 2000s so it sounds a bit trancey dated but still fun if you like your trance fast and pumping! I first heard of Wim Mertens and Close Cover when I bought Cafe Del Mar Volume 5 back in 2000 and immediately loved his approach to new age and classical music. I’m not such a big fan of new age but do love classical so I love Close Cover in it’s true original form. But the Minimalistix make a fun clubbed out version that you can hear below. Check them both out and see what you think of both.

    Close Cover is off of Minimalistix’s Elements CD and Close Cover by Wim Mertens is off of Wim Merten’s Usura album. Minimalistix’s album Elements contains so many covers including a remake of A Forest by The Cure, Adagio For Strings by Samuel Barber, Twin Peaks Theme and more. Worth checking for anyone into covers, remixes and more.

  14. A Forest (Original Mix) by Blank & Jones featuring Robert Smith


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Well here’s a remix or shall we say remake from several years ago. It’s one of my favorite Cure tracks – A Forest updated progressive trance style. This remake still sounds good even after 5 years. Boy time flies doesn’t it? Anyway I was happy that Blank & Jones redid this track. It’s been re-recorded by Robert Smith for this release as they are not using the original version of the song by The Cure but hey it still sounds like the original doesn’t it? It’s been given the energetic makeover and really has the feel of full on energetic club track. I can see it really getting people down and grooving in the clubs!

    I’m a pretty big Cure fan and Blank & Jones are alright so it’s always good to get these great remixes every so often.

    Check out the two versions and see what I mean. The single release – photo above had several other versions but they really did not work for me as good as the original version of the remake worked. So I have the original below along with the original Cure version of the track. What do you think? Let me know your thoughts.

  15. Relax (Jam & Spoon Hi N-R-G Remix) by Frankie Goes To Hollywood


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Remix a classic song like Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood? Fuck yea! Do it and do it even more. This remix set came out back in 1993, just around the corner from the release of the Frankie Goes To Hollywood greatest hits set and I immediately went crazy for the Jam & Spoon Hi N-R-G Remix. I knew Jam & Spoon from their awesome trance classic “Stella” track and was searching out more from Jam & Spoon so this was a great find and true it’s quite awesome!

    I absolutely love this remix. It starts out quite slow and euphoric with a very long build up and then it becomes so fast and furious that it can bring the house down. It’s kicking so hard. It’s quite awesome.

    Check it out and compare the original with the remix. I think you will see a totally different track. Way to go Jam & Spoon. I don’t know what those guys are up to these days but this is them in major top form. Immediately after this remix for Frankie Goes To Hollywood Jam & Spoon released Tripomatic Fairytales 2001. One of the better electronic albums of the 1990s. If you don’t have it then you should definitely find it and own it!

    There’s been countless other remixes that have been done for Relax but this Jam & Spon Hi N-R-G Remix is a cut above the rest!

    Enjoy!
