- The Christmas Star

While supermarkets' shelf-displays fill up with chocolates and toys, while streets sparkle with thousands of lights, you just can't ignore that Christmas is coming back. And Christmas songs is a tradition that no artist should miss. So, shortly after Life Is Love and their first album, Free 2 Night release their new single The Christmas Star, an excellent rave/happy-hardcore track about this particular moment of the year.
Featuring soulful vocals by Ira Vain and raps by Viper, the result is a fast-paced track full of positive energy, with a great holiday sentiment. No cover, this is an original track. It comes along with 3 versions and it is definitely worth a buy.
So, rather than relying on the old (boring) standards, put on your dancing shoes, gather with good friends and capture the magic of Xmas.

- Free Tonight (Deluxe X-mas Edition)

In less than 2 years, Free 2 Night trio (RealThing, Viper and Ira Vain) succeeded in becoming one of the best new generation eurodance projects. They proved that eurodance was not dead and still has a lot of things to say. After several brilliant singles, it was high time for their first album. Initially released in October, it got enriched with 3 additional tracks, including new single The Christmas Star. Now we have not less than 17 tracks, and each have a distinctive flair, sure to please Free 2 Night's growing fanbase.
Album opens with Stays The Same, which was their second official single. A superb song, containing everything a eurodance tracks needs.
Then comes Free Tonight, a stunning track that gets right to the point, on which Viper delivers a particulary amazing rap performance. One of my favourites.
Subseqently we have Lost Control, a great collaboration with BPM's rapper and producer Boris Pavlovic, already reviewed here.
Rise Up is a cool euro-reggae track conveying a positive message of hope and courage.
This was their first official single : Music in Your Mind is an amazing eurodance song with perfect synths and great beat.
Afterwards, Against the Wind introduces a touch of eurotrance reminding of projects such Milk Inc. Brilliant and uplifting, with powerful and sensual vocals by Ira Vain at her best, the result is impressive.
Then we have the Original mix Under the Sun, already reviewed here, with its exotic and mysterious flavor. Special mention to Viper's excellent rap performance.
Sweet Lies is also a very powerful song with a pull-you-onto-the-dancefloor rhythm and an uplifting melodic line which provide the platform for Ira's and Viper's voices
Memories is another fantastic, beautifully crafted song that will have you dancing in no time. And you will discover that Ira Vain knows how to rap too !
Power in Your Heart is a solid masterpiece with once again fantastic female vocals to die for and strong, exploding beats.
Then we have Life Is Love, a simply magnificent song with gorgeous synths, that was recently released as a single and already reviewed here. A real ear-candy you can't help singing along with.
Unity is a delightful euro-reggae song, a sunny summer track which will be perfect for your beach parties.
Album goes on with Extended Remix ofUnder the Sun, which really deserved to be on the album.
Hypothetic Remix of Rise Up completely revamps the track and the result is simply amazing. Eurodance in every sense of the word.
Da Mask Remix of Life Is Love fueled the song with even more energy. This is one of the album's highlights.
Eurodance Remix of Under the Sun with its breathtaking synths shall not be missed either.
Eventually we have the Main Mix of their new single The Christmas Star.
Many potential hits and no fillers, an outstanding release that every eurodance fan should have in his collection.

- Move It All

Pulse Of The Beat's third single Move It All features Lady B's catchy and sensual vocals combined with energetic raps by Svetoslav Yankov. The result is a real eurodance bomb with awesome synths and an irresistible bouncy beat. The first version was made mid-2012, but you would swear it was recorded in the 90s !
Single is a package of 5 previously unreleased versions, including mixes by Poison Beat (my favourite !) and Tom Payle. So get ready to lose yourself in a whirl of eurodance sounds. This is probably of the best releases of the year, really worth buying.
And don't forget to check also Sex Desire, a free bonus song with a colorful cartoon videoclip paying tribute to E-rotic.

The result of this revamping is an updated and emotive trancy sound with soulful vocals. Imagination is an extremely catchy sounding track taking you on a musical trip. Pure delight ! So, get ready to be mesmerized by L.A. Work's beautiful vibes.

- Reloaded

Eurodance legend DJ Bobo realized the accomplishment of a flawless carreer, remaining popular throughout all these years. He adapted to the new trends, without betraying the first years' fans nor getting the big head or losing his humor. This time, he teamed with various artists from 80s, 90s or current electro scene fame, to revisit his most well-known hits.
Album opens directly with the Remady mix of Somebody Dance With Me, featuring singer Manu-L, which was released as a single last April. The good idea was to keep the awesome original melody, and to combine it with some more up-to-date elements. Raps were a little bit refreshed too.
Next track is a the King & White Mix of Pray, a catchy rework ready to kill the dancefloors.
Then comes Take Control, a collaboration with Mike Candys, another famous Swiss DJ, whose musical influence is really perceptible. Once again, we discover some new rap verses. And I really love it when DJ Bobo raps ! The result is an electro house slammer...
New version of Everybody features amazing vocals by Romanian star Inna. Style is still euro-reggae, with an updated sound, giving a polynesian feel, perfect for next summer.
Afterwards, David May slams out a nice mix of Love Is All Around, originally a eurodance masterpiece from 1994, and this time, the original lyrics were kept.
80s star Kim Wilde joined the remake of I Believe, to make it an emotive moment where Kim and René's talents masterfully blend.
Subseqently we have a massive King & White Mix of There Is A Party, a banger with a catchy electro bass line.
German Rockabilly band The Baseballs were the guests on this happy vintage version of Chihuahua. You really feel they had a lot of fun on this one !
Then we have the King & White Mix of Freedom. Freedom is my favourite DJ Bobo song of all times, so I miss a little bit the original melody. Anyway, this is a very well-done rework.
Afterwards, turn up the bass and keep going wild, cause here comes once again a King & White Mix. This time, it is for Shadows Of The Night, which was one of the most beautiful DJ Bobo songs from World In Motion album.
The Bodybangers put their hands on What A Feeling to reinterpret this song with their typical and worldwide successful sound. Still featuring Irene Cara...
Great singer Jessica Folcker, famous for her contribution to many Swedish eurodance projects (Amadin, E-Type, Leila K...), visited this nice acoustic version Respect Yourself.
Then King & White did a mix of Let The Dream Come True. Once again, I would have preferred them to keep the original melody. Anyway, the result is is a catchy melodic electro smasher.
Album closes on a Megamix Radio Version of all the album's tracks.
I don't think this new album will disappoint the long-term fans, even if they may sometimes be surprised. Let's hope that DJ Bobo will also gain some new fans among the electro house addicts. So, don't miss this collection of dancefloor jammers !

- Be My Man

The Soundlovers are back for good ! After a 2k13 remix of their hit Surrender, they finally release a brand new single. They remained faithful to the good old Italo style which made them famous, combining it with some modern elements. Single was composed by Molella and Roby Santini, written by Phil Jay, Roby Santini and Nathalie Aarts.
It includes 2 Mollymixes by Molella, 2 versions by RSDJ and J-Art and, to complete the package, a very up-to-date electro version by Glossed Guys (Stefano Iezzi and Luigi Di Virgilio). Be My Man comes along with a nice artistic video directed by Simone D'Angelo.
Nathalie's lovely vocals flow deliciously on accordion melodies and flawless bouncy beats. Atmosphere is dreamy and nostalgic, yet infectiously danceful. A potential hit and a real treat for fans as well. Get ready to be mesmerized !

- Undercover

Beginning of January, Milk Inc recorded some cover songs in their own style for Ornelis en Rogiers Showtime, a radio show on Belgian station Q Music (the previous year, it was the turn of the band Within Temptation). Every Friday at 7:45 one song was revealed.
After more than 15 years of flawless carreer, Milk Inc have nothing to prove, and they can afford doing a covers album.
The playlist is huge : not less than 21 songs on the CD. And there’s simply not a wasted second.
Album opens with an short but cool intro entitled Uncovered
Then we have Last Night a Dj Saved My Life, originally released by Indeep, which score a huge hit, even in France where amnesic radio DJs suddenly rediscovered Milk Inc.
Next song is Wicked Game, a song of Chris Isaak. Milk Inc fueled the track with all the energy that the original lacked.
Then comes Sweet Child O' Mine originally released by Guns N' Roses, which really deserved this little electro update.
Imagination is a cover of a Prayers song, which was released today as a single.
Afterwards, we have Your Friend , a nice cover of a 2010 song by Gregor Salto feat. Chappell, a song which I had never heard before.
Then comes Ready To Fly which was a song initially sung by eurodance artist Rozalla.
Next is Bette Davis Eyes , a very emotional cover of Kim Carnes' classic.
Fairytale Gone Bad initially performed by Sunrise Avenue is probably one of my favorite covers of the album.
I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight by Cutting Crew (already covered by Co-Ro in the 90s)
Scared of Yourself is a very interesting cover of Zornik aka Koen Buyse, who had collaborated with Regi on his single Punish.
On We Found Love, a cover of a Rihanna song, Linda unleashes her vocals skills.
The album continues with The Fear a cover of a song by Ben Howard released in 2011. Another song that I discover thanks to Milk Inc, who succeeded in creating a punchier and more uplifting version.
Touch Me , a cover of Rui Da Silva, is a trip definitely worth taking.
Next track is a powerful cover of Ride Like the Wind, originally released by Christopher Cross and already covered by East Side Beat and the Masterboy.
Rain Down On Me was at first sung by a Dutch rock band called Kane. Milk Inc's version brings more power without betraying the original.
Broken Strings was originally released by James Morrison in 2008. This new version is a duet of Linda with Rich Knight, one of the members of Skylight, Filip Vandueren and John Miles Jr's current band. Quite more energetic than the original.
Subsequently we have La Vache 2013, the hit that started it all. 2013 seems to be a good year to release updated versions. Eurodance artists who released 2013 remixes are countless : among them DJ Bobo, Jam & Spoon, Banaroo, Rozalla, Rebeca, Whigfield, Lasgo, Look Twice, Captain Jack, and soon 2 Unlimited. When it comes to eurodance, I always prefer the original. But this time, Linda adds the vocals that missed in the first version.
Then we have Miracle, an original song, which premiered during Regi's wedding last year, and won Eurodance Web Awards 2012.
Yes was originally recorded by Merry Clayton for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. This is the only ballad on the album.
Album closes with the outro Covered Up.
Strangely, Milk Inc did not include their cover of Ultravox's Dancing With Tears In My Eyes nor the cover of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive.
As a conclusion, Milk Inc delivers a head-and-shoulders-above covers collection. According to Linda, this album is even better than the previous one. I don't know... Maybe it sounds a little too bit electro and not enough euro-trance to me. But it is for sure an excellent release, a must-have for every Milk Inc fan. And once again they did it : album already topped the Belgian charts.

Eurodance legend T-Spoon are back, and this is already their second single of the summer. In collaboration with another big name of the 90s, Jaydee (Plastic Dreams), they redesigned their euro-reggae single Summerlove originally released in 1999, to give a more modern feel, and they did a very nice job. The result of this revamping is a bouncy, refreshing, summer infused song with a perfect club feel and sound
It comes along with a bunch of very danceable house remixes, packed with good vibes. It is very hard to pick a favourite mix. A must-have for every beach or pool party.

- Flame (Hart Remix Edition)

Bulgarian singer and songwriter Ivan Dimov started his career during the 90s. Let’s Fly and its videoclip were his biggest success. Nowadays, he is back under scene name Shilton to rock the neo-eurodance era with the singles Flame and Don't Stop Your Dreams. Flame was a big charts and radio success in Shilton's home country, and will be presented on an international song contest. In 2013, Shilton releases new remixes for Flame, along with a video featuring this time Kristina Petrova, a blond beauty on the beach (2011 videoclip featured a beautiful brunette hitchhiking on the countryside).
Allying silky male vocals to an infectious groove, this gem is a real shaker. All remixes are very enjoyable. If I told you that my favourite versions are the eurodance mixes, would you be surprised ? Single also includes a Handz Up Extended Mix of his second single Don't Stop Your Dreams.

Friso Schaap aka Mr Friso is a Dutch producer, singer, clarinetist and songwriter who started his career in the 90s as a DJ. In 2011 his single Darbuka Trance reached the top 5 of the Dutch reverbnation list. Since 2012 he collaborated with different famous singers as Tracy Bagnall, Kate Lesing, Katia Garcia, Big J Beezy and more recently Lyane Leigh. His current single contains 3 songs featuring eurodance diva's vocals in all its glory : Don't Break a Heart, I Can't Believe and Bondage Boy. And all of them are great dance tracks, with bouncy beat and a superb sweet melody which fit perfectly Lyane's vocals. Don't Break a Heart, I Can't Believe are beautifully melancholic, Bondage Boy really reminds of SEX Appeal and E-rotic. These are instant floor-fillers.

- We Won't Stop

Did it already happen to you, while listening to an instrumental track, to tell yourself "Wow, this would sound so good with some lyrics in it !". So Experience Of Music took their recent single After Spring and invited former T-Spoon rapper Shamrock (aka Lightwarrior) and his vocalist Luna Lobi to add some raps and vocals to it. The result ? A great synergy and a very nice package. One of my favourite versions is the Original Vocal Mix.
Experience Of Music are known for their collaboration with many eurodance artists, from Lyane Leigh to Michael K (General Base) and Richard Williams (LOFT). After Spring had a lot of success into European Dance-Charts hits, so let's hope that this new version will be as big !

- Eternally - The new remixes

HI-NRG legend Ernest Kohl is back with Eternally, originally a ballad from current eponymous album. A timeless and mesmerizing release, to listen from dancefloor to lounge.
Ernest's smooth as silk vocals beautifully glide over the synths to create a dreamy yet dancefull atmosphere, slightly hypnotic. Maxi includes not less than 16 top notch remixes, from Emerald Coast, Steel Fist UK, Porl Young, Pied Piper and Womack. One of my favourites are the Emerald Coast remixes and their catchy eurodance-like melody.
Maxi closes with a surprise live version recorded during The Concert For Help For Victims of Hurricane Sandy "Concert For The Cure" in NYC during which Ernest did a special guest appearance. Waco is an American pop rock group who had several huge hit during the 90's (such as Dark Lady)

- Erotic Secrets

Acting Lovers are back with a long-awaited third album gathering their most recent singles as well as potential hits... Since they picked up the torch from E-rotic, they kept on producing excellent eurodance tracks, with the classic sexual innuendoes (but without the making love sounds) and never deceived their fanbase.
Album features soulful vocals by Kathryn McCunningham and powerful raps by Danny Ciccone, as well as intelligent, well-written lyrics. There are not just tracks to dance to, every track is a story on its own. And there are only original tracks, no cover !
Album opens with a superb fast eurodance track, A.N.A.L. (an acronym meaning Alex Needs A Lover), a real gem.
Then comes the Radio Edit of the lovely Curtain Falls, another killer tune tainted with nostalgy
It is followed by When Love Dies, an uptempo rupture song. Sadness in the lyrics is balanced by the pounding rhythm and sizzling melody
Then comes Radio edit of exciting Euro-reggae single Summertime, sunny and joyful, a real summer anthem.
Afterwards we have Unforeseen, a sweet, sultry and romantic ballad.
Next track is Radio Edit of Cam 2 Cam, which combines a modern sound, slightly trancy, and irresistible beats
Then comes the classy If You Need Me Tonight, which will have your bodies rocking all night long
You And Me is one of the project's oldest songs : Patrick Thomson composed in 2001 and Davis O'Flynn wrote the lyrics one year later. Breath-taking and fast-paced, with amazing synths, pure classic eurodance in every tone and string.
Back to euro-reggae with the superb song Don't Lie To Me, where Kathryn spits all her anger against the liar who cheated her.
10th track from the album is the Radio Edit of Angels Never Come Back. Originally written in 2009, it is another brilliant track
Stay (Female Version) is another well-crafted ballad
Next track is smashing fast-paced euro-reggae track Robbie. The group presented it as the "sequel" of Ray's Way Is Gay from previous album Burning Temptations
It is followed by The Power Of Good Bye, a massive, pure eurodance to die for, one of my favourites (and it was not easy to chose, since all tracks are sooo good !)
Album ends with extended versions of You And Me and If You Need Me Tonight.
Acting Lovers prove once again they don't just copy the E-rotic style, they perpetuate the tradition with as much talent as Brandes team used to. Erotic Secrets is a must-have for every eurodance fan !

- Not Just A Game

Never2Loud is the project created by former 2 Unlimited 3rd generation James Giscombe and Débora Remagen. Not Just A Game was initially recorded in 2010 as Never2Loud featuring Pelé, for soccer World Championship. Pelé is Débora's uncle. Now released under DMN Records, it comes along with 4 versions. This is a sweet latin-flecked uptempo soccer anthem, featuring the classic background crowd sounds, Pelé's voice samples and sexy raps by James and Débora, which nicely combine to a beat that can't fail to move your feet.

- U Can Light My Love

James Allan Giscombe is known for fronting 2 Unlimited 3rd generation, along with Brazilian dancer Débora Remagen. With this solo release, he proves to the world he is not only a lipsyncer, but a real artist, quite a good singer and rapper (and did you know he has an Electrical and Electronic Engineering Diploma and a MBA in Music Management too ?). U Can Light My Love is a cool pop dance track with a touch of RnB, a nice combination of free-flowing lyrics and catchy chorus.

- Ooh Yes !

Lightwarrior is the name chosen by T-spoon rapper (and very active songwriter) Shalamon Baskin for his new project. Ooh Yes ! features another T-spoon rapper as background vocalist : Greg Dillard ! This tasty and irreverent single comes along with a hot video showing a smily Shamrock in striped gangster suit surrounded by sexy female dancers. 4 remixes are included : 2 by Dirty Principle Vs Enfortro, one by Mr. Smith and an Original Radio Mix. Not really eurodance, but a quality production and a perfect floor filler. Coming in February under DMN records...

- Out Tonight

Eurodance legend Ice MC is back with a brand new original single, Out Tonight, and an updated electro sound. Released under DMN Records, it was specially remixed by Enfortro & Dirty Principle, and featured on Dance It Up compilation. It features great, soulfoul vocals by Giula Gal, Ice MC's new vocalist who also appears at his sides during stage appearances. Ice MC's vocoded's raps, with some wicked electro loops thrown in to great effect, will probably surprise the early hour's fans. Out Tonight grooves infectiously and, from warm up to main set, will move any dancefloor.

- Sweet Dreams Fulfilled, The Melanie Thornton Story

No eurodance fan ever forgot diva Melanie Thornton, brillant frontlady of La Bouche (and also the voice of many other eurodance projects such as Le Click, 100%, Orange Blue, Comic, Men Behind...), gone too soon on a tragic night of November 2001.
Lois Chisolm, her older sister, portrays an amazingly generous and relentless person and a great, unique personality.
From the childhood of 2 American girls (from the time when kids were well-educated, proving to the new generation one can survive without iPads and cell-phones) to the reconstitution of Melanie's last moments, this is a moving testimony filled with previously unreleased private pictures, sad or funny anecdotes and revelations, which helps us know better who has now become an icon of the 90s. The book's title of course refers to by La Bouche's first hit single...
It reveals some of Melanie's hidden talents as well : she was also a gifted clothes designer and decorator. It also contains some very interesting parts unveiling secrets about musical show-business : for instance, you will understand why studio singers would rather remain studio singers.
If I had to raise one criticism, it would be that it lacks a comprehensive list of every Melanie vocal contributions.
For the moment only available as an eBook on Amazon. A publication you will devour.
