- Tell It To My Heart

Multitalented Raquela Burt is no newcomer in the musical business. She is not only a singer, but also a songwriter, an assistant producer and actress. These past years, she successfully released dance tracks that have made her a recognized Billboard artist today. Her spectacular live appearances got her compared to Lady Gaga. She is also a voting member of the Grammy's.
Raquela revisits Taylor Dayne's classic and the result is sure to rock the bigger stages. The single comes along with not less than 18 energetic remixes, one of my favourite being the Kompulsor Pop Remix).

- Acredita

Maria covered Cher's anthem Do You Believe in a delicious Brazilian ragga-dance style. Featured ragga-rapper is unknown but, according to rumors, it could be Pitbull.

- Nite of the Groove (Experience of music Bass Mix)

Featured on the Polish compilation Eurodance Attack Vol. 1, this brilliant eurodance remix (and co-production) by Experience of Music is the first release by Shanghai'd Beats.
Shanghai'd Beats is a project by Andreas Hüging (LOFT, Nik Holland etc.). This brilliant eurodance track, combining female vocals by Sue (LOFT) and male raps by Andreas Hüging himself and Boris Pavlovic (BPM), reminds of the most glorious names of German eurodance, such as E-rotic or SEX Appeal. A pumping and uplifting track to move your feet and stir your soul. So great to see that, even nowadays, there are projects which keep on releasing original eurodance tracks.

- Midsummer Night

Centered around the day of summer solstice, midsummer celebrations are particularly important in Northern Europe, especially in Sweden where they are one of the most important holidays of the year. Events include dancing around a huge maypole. Young people put flower bouquets under their pillow, to dream about their lover. This is all Miss June's first single is about. This excellent summer eurodance track also deals with clichés about Swedish girls, not without humor. Tasty and punchy, it has the potential to become a floor smasher.

- Les Fous

Here is another great release by Italian artist In-Grid, from her album Passion (already reviewed earlier).

Songs is French are not usually my cup of tea, but this is a very happy and uplifting electro-house track with nice airy synths. The CD maxi also includes with 3 versions in English, entitled Stick To You. A real invitation to party !

James Manoro comes from Switzerland, with Italian roots from a Sicilian father. He took part to musicals, studio recordings and was lead singer in a pop band, but had always been fascinated by Italo Disco, which lead him to a successful collaboration with his current label White Rose Records.

The single comes with the original radio edit (acoustic and rather slow), followed by 5 different nice uptempo mixes. It ends with Instrumental riffs and an acapella version. A nice and catchy chorus that you'll soon sing along, Sasha's raw voice, sexy dreamy French vocals by Diane Fleri, uplifting electro synths, contribute to create a nice summer feeling. My 2 favourites : without hesitation the Rivaz radio edit and the Rivaz riff mix !

This EP is a collection of critically acclaimed Stefano Gambarelli aka Gambafreaks's 4 latest songs featuring vocals by Nicole : Everybody Love, Never Say Never, Natural Womam and Freedom. A collection of hot club house tracks layered with Nicole's signature, subtle bass growl carrying the groove until the vocals drop.

- Passion (album)

In 2001, In-grid scored a huge hit with Tu Es Foutu. This was the beginning a very successful carreer, leading her to become one of the key figures on the Italo-house scene. She is back with her fourth studio album, completely sung in French, released at the very beginning of 2010. I am usually not very keen on songs in French, but this is a very good dance album, sure to delight all In-Grid's fans.

It starts with the current single Les Fous, a real invitation to party. Then, another of her hits, Le dragueur, with its accordion theme reminding of Tu Es Foutu. The action continues with Amour Ma Passion, a real electro declaration of love. Afterwards, we have the very catchy Chaos. Movie Star is a slammin' uptempo track. Next featured in the album is Jalousie and its bombastic electronic grooves. Afterwards, we have Les Jeux Sont Faits, a song about rupture. Then comes the hot and sexy Sweet Desire, reminding somehow of a Mylène Farmer track. Afterwards, the very unexpected and happy track Vive Le Swing. Then, the midtempo track C'est L'amour. Follows Le Cri Du Coeur, a nice dance track with a strong oriental touch. Afterwards, the brilliant Tout Pour Toi. We then have Papillonne Sur Moi, a happy song with a hard to classify style. A Ma Facon sounds very retro too, with its reggae beat and its accordion sound. The album closes with Tu Es La?, an uplifting track featuring Pochill, first released as a single back in 2005.
