The original "Beachball" features on this release, much harder though and without the vocals. A classic summerbreeze that will set dancefloors in fire for all the years ahead of us. On the flip is a percussion monster for peaktime moments.

The collaboration between Hanayo (from Japan) and Jurgen Paape (from Germany) results in amazing track 'Joe Le Taxi'. Actually a re-work of Vanessa Paradis' hit from 1987. Hanayo's voice gives me the shivers. Paape's production is as usual skill.
