Remixes from LEX and John Luongo on the flip provide more subdued, classically HiNRG interpreations. T-Street f/Izora Armstead “Keep On Runnin†Stop & Go ITA 12 – Featuring one of the former Weather Girls, this is a powerful bigroom Italian house production that will get the hands in the air with its tough, energetic disco-tinged orchestration that serves as the perfect platform for Ms Armstead’s vocal. Todd Terry f/Jocelyn Brown & Martha Wash “Something Goin On 2005†Manifesto ENG 12 – New 2005 remix of this classic vocal house anthem from 1997 with two very different interpretations, as Dancing DJs go for the bigroom HiNRG sound while Kenny Hayes provides a funky mid-tempo classic house mix. Both perfectly integrate the famous vocals. Ty Tek “Feel My Fire†Distraekt ENG 12 Part 1 and Part 2 – In its original form a funky, chunky tech-tinged house with a sultry female vocal, disc one also includes a more uplifting disco-tinged production by Da Groovemakers while disc two features a massive dark tribal-progressive reworking from Piliavin & Zimbardo and a chunky reworking from Rick Pier O’Neil. Trance & Progressive Dream Dance Alliance “Bells Of Heaven†7th Sense GER 12 – Uplifiting Teutonic trancer with haunting carillon bell samples and a haunting male spoken vocal hook woven into the waves of melodic synth and driving rhythm lines. Includes a fully instrumental version on the flip. Iio “Kiss You’ White USA 12 Promo – The latest offering from Iio is another classic production featuring haunting female vocals and hypnotic orchestration. For the trance floors there is a massive floor-filling rework from George Acosta and a more refined Dutch-influenced remix by Teemu, while house floors are ably cared for by a stunning remix by Peter Bailey. Robert Plant “The Enchanter†Sanctuary ENG 12 Promo – UNKLE on the mix for the latest single from the veteran rocker, integrating Plant’s catchy vocal performance into a hypnotic, spacious yet energetic progressive house orchestration. Includes both full vocal and dub versions. Kay Stone “Alone†Breeze GER 12 – Anthemic trance pick for the week with waves of melodic synth, driving rhythm lines and a haunting, distant female vocal hook worked into the production. Remixes come from Kasuma and Mind One, and are both solid productions. Darius Syrossian “House of Maya†Wallop ENG 12 – dark, brooding progressive house production with a hooky spoken female vocal worked into the hypnotic swells and waves in the synthlines and shuffly rhythms. Three mixes.
