and yours truly.
Alexia - "Fan Club"
This cd has a lot of wicked songs on it. It has the wicked songs Me and
You, The Summer is Crazy, Number One and Uh La La La. Also Virtual Reality,
Looking for My Baby and Beat of the Night are really awesome songs. The cd
is predominately euro/hi nrg music but the song Hold On is a slow song and
it is not very good. There is a spanish version along with the normal
version of number one which are both good. All in all it is one of the
better euro cd's by an artist this year.

CDs by Artists
Mary J Blige - "Share my world"
One of premiere r&b artists around. Mary J has an excellent soulful voice
and it's all showing on this cd. She just happened to be in town last week,
so i got the cd autographed for my sister. It has the hits "not gon' cry"
and "you make me feel like a natural woman" as well as the current single
"Love is all we need". A couple of other tracks of note... The duet with
r kelly, "it's on" is great too, very very r kelly though but their voices
complement well. Also "I can love you" and "share my world" are pretty
catchy. So I'd expect at least 2 or 3 of these being released as singles
in their own right!

Brooklyn Bounce - "The Beginning"
This cd has house, progressive, underground and techno songs. A lot of the
songs use samples of the song Get Ready 2 Bounce. Get Ready to Bounce is
the best song on this cd and there are 2 versions of it. The Funk Attack
version of Get Ready to Bounce is not very good. There is a remix of the
song Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood which is pathetic. Take a Ride and
The Theme are btoh pretty good songs.

Daft Punk - "Homework"
This CD boasts 2 singles already in "Da funk" and the international hit
"Around the world" A pretty good CD, with a lot of variety and influences.
It is mostly a house style CD. But for some reason I can relate to some of
the tracks, "Revolution 909" sounds like a pet shop boys remix off Disco2.
and "Phoenix" sounds a bit like Kim Syms' "Too blind to see it" Be warned
some of the tracks are quite literally hurting. I got a headache I first
time I heard "Burnin'" and "Rock n Roll" is Wink-esque in that department
too ;) None the less a very good CD. Most interesting track is teachers which
appears to pay homage to the likes george clinton, van heldon, lil louis, etc..
They are "in the house"

Faithless - "Insomnia"
Just listened to it twice so far... and aside from the hits "insomnia" and
"salva mea" the cd doesn't do a lot for me... "If you lovin' you is wrong"
is quite witty though makes me cringe cos there's no melody to it whatsoever.
2. don't leave
3. salva mea
4. if lovin' you is wrong
7. dirty ol' man
8. flowerstand man
9. baseball cap
10. drifting away
Jocelyn Enriquez - "Jocelyn"
This cd was a bit of a dissapointment to me when I first got it because
there weren't any songs that were as good as Do You Miss Me & A Little Bit
of Ecstacy. There are 2 versions of those 2 songs which are both good.
There are 3 slow songs on this cd. The song Save Me From Being Alone is the
only good slow songs out of these. I'm I'm Falling in Love part 1 and part
2 are both really good songs. Lovely People is another good song of this
cd. There are no songs which are as fast paced as her first two singles off
1. Lovely People
2. A Little Bit of Ecstasy
3. Do You Miss Me?
4. Even If
5. Only You
6. Can You Feel it (Rock It Don't Stop It)
7. Stay With Me
8. Get Into The Rhythm

14. Do You Miss Me (Running Mix)
15. A Little Bit of Ecstasy (Freefloor Mix)
Living Joy - "Don't stop movin'"
Not a bad cd. I'd thought it be all euro-dance cd going on the strength of
the first 3 hits to come of the cd, "dreamer", "don't stop movin" and
"follow the rules" but i was pleasantly surprised! There are a couple of
more soulful tracks in "deep in you" and "let me love you" in there.
"dreamer" has been revamped for the cd, the vocals supplied by Tameka Star
are a bit more powerful, although there appears to be something taken of
the tune itself. "follow the rules" and "whenever you're lonely" both
remind me of the remix of Isha D's "stay" from a couple years ago. And the
last few tracks remind of me rhythm formula (vol 4). The surprise on the
track and there is actually a 12th track on the cd. I dunno if it's just
mine but there was the original of "dreamer" on it!
1. don't stop movin' 5.16
2. follow the rules 3.51
3. deep in you 4.27
4. dreamer 5.44
5. pick up the phone 4.34
6. be original 4.34
7. where can i find love 3.54
8. don't cha' wanna 4.19
9. whenever you're lonely 4.20
10. let me love you 4.14
11. don't stop movin' (manetta mix) 5.46
HIDDEN: dreamer '95 3.42
Olive - "Extra Virgin"
Olive comprise of Ruth-Ann (vocals), Tim (ex-Simply Red?) and Robin
and out of the UK where they struck #1 with "You're not alone" in
May '97. What's the English "sound"? This probably epitimizes this
quaint quality! Well that and the prodigy. Anyhow the CD is mix of
trip-hop (you must remember Portishead), dreamy trance and a wee
bit of breakbeat/jungle thrown in for good measure as in the
"curious" track. Stand out track not surprisingly is "You're not
alone" since it's starting to get airplay in Canada. "Miracle"
(which is currently top 3 on the UK club chart) is a dreamy song.
The remixes sound be interesting, once they come around our way!
"You are nothing" is pretty catchy the first time. Aside from that,
it's really the usual trip-hop stuff which I can bare with. Oh yeah
there's a lot of flugelhorn on this cd, if anyone is interested

3. Safer Hands
5. You're not alone
8. Blood Red Tears
10.You are nothing
12.I don't think so
HIDDEN TRACK: You're not alone (acoustic)
Pet Shop Boys - "Bilingual"
Latest offering the British Duo celebrates the English vs European
Community. A bit bland compared to earlier albums. The only songs
that stand out "Before", "Red Letter Day", "Single Bilingual"
Prodigy - "Fat of the land"
This is a wicked cd and I can see why it is the number one album in the
world right now. The best songs are Firestarter and Breathe. Most of the
songs on this cd are pretty good. Every song is typical of the Prodigy's
style of music. Other than Firestarter and Breathe no songs really stand
out when you listen to it. There are no tracks that suck
1. Smack My Bitch Up
3. Diesel Power
4. Funky Shit
5. Serial Thrilla
10. Fuel My Fire
Club Cutz 8
This cd has some totally awesome songs like I fell in love by Rockell and
some really bad songs. The remix of People Hold on by Lisa Stansfield is
wicked and ituses samples form the Remix of Proffesional Widow by Tori Amos
which was remixed by Armand Van Heldon. Le Click finally came out with a
second single which is a good follow up to Tonight is the night. As well
First Base's song is pretty good but it does not even compare to their mega
hit song Love is Paradise. One of my favorite songs is Rhythm in my life by
Prinz Amaho, it is up beat and pretty catchy. I give this cd a 7.5 out of
10 because 8 of the songs are not that good but the other 6 songs a really good.

Club Life 97 (Non Stop Mix by Dj's Rule)
This cd does not look very good if you look at the songs but it is a lot
better when you listen to it. The mixing is really good on it. The best
songs are by Red 5 and Temperance. Alexia and the Porn Kings have good
songs that are a bit old and the version of Up To No Good is not as good as
the original. There are new songs by DJ's Rule, Oval Emotion, Cleo Patra,
DreamLand and J-Cock which are all pretty good. The song Rockin' Feelin' is
a cheezy rip off of the songs Get Up by Byron Stingly.

Dance Hits Allstarz 97
This cd has a lot of wicked songs, both old (Rhythm of Love & Don't Stop
Moving) and new (Get Ready To Bounce & Angel). This cd features and
exclusive remix of Da Dip which is wicked. Brooklyn Bounce. Porn Kings & PJ
bring a little bit of house tip to this cd. All in all I like almost every
song on this cd besides a 3 or 4 of them. There are not to many songs that
are "really" new on this cd but many of the songs are wicked.

Dance Hits Super Mix 2
This is a very good cd which has a good mix of songs from r&b to Hi-NRG to
Euro. There are some songs that are older like Crying in The Rain by
Culture Beat and Feels So Good By Lina Santiago. There are huge hits from
Da Dip, MC Lyte, Alexia and the Prodigy. There is quite a few of Canadian
artists which include Solina, Joee, Intonation & Kairene. All in all an
excellent cd which has many good songs new and old.

Dance Machine 4th Gear (DJ Line 27)
This is the worst cd in the DJ Line series that has been out in a long time.
The intro and the mixing is not very good. The songs by Angelina and DJ
Bobo are not very good at all. There are wicked tracks by Alexia, Roxxy and
Capitol Sound. The Spice Girls Megamix is pretty good. There are many cheap
rip offs of songs. I'm feeling horny uses cheesy samples of Let Me Clear My
Throat by DJ Kool Check out Da Bassline is a ripoff of Klubhopping by the
Klubbheads. Songs by Jaade and Q-Club are 2 of the better songs on this cd
but that may not be saying too much. The only reason this cd has this high
of a rating is because of the better songs on it.

16 Swingaling - Ricky Ricardo Ext Mix
17 Summer in the City - ZZZippooMan
This cd combines many types of music like house, euro, latino, pop and Hi-nrg.
MC Mario has come out with another wicked cd. My favorite song has to be
Tic Tic Tac by Fruit De La Passion. There are new songs by culture beat and
Masterboy which have not been released here in Canada yet. The mixing is
good and so is the Mastermind Intro. Most of the songs on this cd are new
except All My Dreams by Laya feat MC Solo which is a wicked song. This cd
has a lot of wicked songs and a lot of new songs so I give it a 9/10.

Dome Party Mix 97
The Dome is a club in Montreal and MC Mario DJ's there. I really like
almost every song especially "Afterparty" by Captain Hollywood and "I'm Alive"
by Stretch and Vern. The mixing is simple but it's good. The best mixing is
within the first six songs on this cd. The only old song is Crying in the
Rain by Culture Beat but it's a wicked song. The version of "Up to no Good"
stinks but every other song is a good version of them. I really like the
song "Try My Love" by Jacynthe, the version on this cd is so much better than
other versions that I have heard on the radio. The song "Heartbroken (Life)"
by Althea McQueen was remixed by MC Mario and it is a really good song. I
give this cd a 9 out of 10 because there is good mixing and some wicked songs.
1 jellyhead - crush
2 try my love - jacynthe
3 show me colors - masterboy
4 crying in the rain - culture beat
5 heartborken - althea mcqueen
6 afterparty - Cpt hollywood

14 lost in love -temp
15 so excited - luca
16 the dome is on fire - phase 3
DJ Club Mix 11
This cd has many fast-beat, up tempo songs. There are so many songs that i
love and they include Here I come by captain GQ, Into the Night by Ondina
who sounds a lot like Corona, Beatman by Nadia, Without Your Love by
Angelina, Number one by Alexia and Do you really love me by Jay Jay. The
song Respect Yourself by Dj BoBo is definitely not one if his better songs.
Lost has really crappy remix of the Toni Braxtons smash hit song Unbreak my
heart. The mixing is really good for the whole cd. Also Boris Dlugosch and
Mia Minx have good songs.
I give this cd a 9.5 out of 10 because it has so many totally awesome songs,
but it has a few songs that are no good at all.
2 Here I Come (power mix) - Captain GQ
3 Open up Your Heart (fuzzy navel mix) - Mix Minx
4 Into the night (Extended mix) - Ondina
5 Tha Wildstyle - Dj Supreme
6 I'm Gonna Party (dance mix) - G-Spline feat Royce

16 Keep Pushin' (original club mix) - Boris Dlugosch presents BOOOM!
17 Respect Yourself (B+B remix) - D.J. Bobo
Dj's United Klub Anthems
This cd has many wicked songs like "Up to no Good" by the Porn Kings, and
"Happy Days" by PJ. There are bad versions of the songs "I can feel" it by M
One, and "Let's All Chant" by Gusto which is a wicked song but it is a
horrible version of it. There are some older songs like "Happiness" by
Pizzaman and "Klubbhopping" by the Klubbheads. Quasi Rhythm had a Horrible
follow up to their first song "Don't you feel my love". Also The Course took
the Fugees Song, "Ready or Not" and remixed it and it came out pretty good.
The Summer Junkies used samples from 'Moments in Love" in the song "I'm Gonna
Luv U" which is one of the better songs on this cd. Overall I give this cd
an 8 out of ten because each song rather is really good or really shitty.
A little bit of ecstasy - JOCELYN ENRIQUEZ
Excellent followup to "Do you miss me?" The CD Single has 10 (count 'em)
tracks. Radio mixes and freefloor mix are best ones on there and sound
a lot like Lina Santiago meets Crystal Waters with a touch of New Order.
There's also an "insomnia" mix, the x-mix of "Do you miss me?" it too
which is not too shabby at all. All in all, good value for money!
Call me - LE CLICK
Overall, it's an ok CD single. The Euro Radio are pretty good and I liked
the Junior's main mix well the first 4 minutes of it, after a while it
goes on. I don't know what version of Junior's remix they played on the
radio but it's shorter. The rap is poor and I think the rapper has been
dropped on the next single on "Don't go" The Spike mixes are ok but pales
in comparison on the mixes he did on "Falling in love". "Tonight is the
night" redone by the new crew is pretty good aside the rapping again.
1. Euro Radio Mix (No Rap)
2. Euro Radio Minx (rap)
3. Junior's Main Mix
4. Spike Me Club Mix
5. Spike Dub
6. "Tonight is the night" feat Kayo/Robert Haynes
Do ya wanna dance? - MARINA
Well thanks to Kamen records for the CD and the review...
A pretty good CD, yes! Marina has a voice comparable to Taylor Dayne. It's
pretty powerful. The disco mixes sounds a little bit like Barry Manilow
but there you go, the house mix and the tribal club anthem caught my
ear at first glance. Have to admit I didn't think much of the disco mixes
but that's growing on me:)
You - ALEXIA PHILLIPS
This single has 8 versions of the song You. They are all pretty good. My
favorite verison is the U.K. mix. The U.S. Club mix and the Dance mix are 2
of the better versions. The Lans Vocal Mix is pretty bad. All in all this
is a very good single.
1 U.K Mix
2 U.S. Club Mix
3 Dance Mix
4 Odeon Remix
5 Euro MIx
6 Extended U.K. Mix
7 Progressive Mix
8 The Lans Vocal Mix
In a Dream (the single) - ROCKELL
On this single there are 2 versions of In a Dream and 2 version of I Fell in
Love. The freestyle mix of In a Dream is totally awesome and the funky mix
is good. The 2 versions of I Fell in Love are not very good.
1. In a Dream (Freestyle Mix) 4:00
2. In a Dream (Funky Mix) 4:15
3. I Fell in Love (Lenny B's Freestyle Radio mix) 4:05
4. I Fell in Love (Lenny B's Freestyle Club Mix) 5:16
One more time (remixes) - REAL McCOY
Back with avengence in their Eurodance style, the remixes are okay.
The bass bumpers mix is what's being played on Energy 108 and that's
not to bad. That mix is a little relaxing than the regular mixes.
