It's a pity that some tracks are edited compared to the vinyl version :(In the first two volumes I don't think that was so.

Actually this is the same for every CD sampler ... I don't understand why.

The "get on up, put your hands together" sample comes from "Rock The House" by Nicole, a classic Clivillés & Cole production.
posted a comment on Coco, Steel & Lovebomb* - Feel It. over 10 years ago
The "Feel It" sample comes from the massively sampled "Life Is Something Special" by the NYC Peech Boys. Another segment was used by Joey Negro in 1990 for "Do It, Believe It".
posted a comment on Danny Tenaglia - Bottom Heavy. over 10 years ago
Funny story behind this classic. Danny had been commissioned for remixing World (The Price Of Love) by New Order. Warner Dance Dpt loved the result, but New Order did not. DT removed the vocals and the samples from New Order, and so was born Bottom Heavy.

Beats & percussion are borrowed from Daphne "When You Love Someone" by Danny Tenaglia.

Great "future jazz" track, highly reminiscent of MAW/Nuyorican Soul cuts like The Nervous Track or When You Touch Me. Melissa Brown vocals add a classy garage touch to this very impressive work.
posted a review of Tony LeMans - Cookie Crumbles. over 13 years ago
An excellent release which explores two different soundscapes. The Higher Than High remix is an interesting Basement Boys re-work, hypnotic and rather midtempo, but the most valuable stuff lies on the A-side : Cookie Crumbles, sung by a very ... See full review

One electro 12" among many others which were produced during the golden age of early electro/hip hop/freestyle. But what makes this record very special is the much sampled SFX track, including the famous 'Picture this, recording studio somewhere far, far ... See full review

Sometimes covers are better than their original version. This remake of The System by Robert Palmer is an excellent example of this exception to the general rule. First, the sound is BIG and much more powerful than on the original 12" (big up to ... See full review
posted a review of Huey Lewis And The News* - I Want A New Drug. over 13 years ago
Big new wave/rock song, very close to perfection : great lyrics, Huey at the top, and a monster horn section that I suspect to be Tower of Power's one. As always, John Luongo adds what is needed to transform this song into a dancefloor stormer. Obviously ... See full review
posted a review of Dan Hartman - Keep The Fire Burnin'. over 13 years ago
A truly essential dance music album, which gathers most of Dan Hartman dance hits in their full extended version (from disco to house). Forget about the first track (Todd Terry going eurodance ...) and listen directly to "Living in America" sung by his ... See full review
posted a review of Jimmy Lifton - I'm A Man. over 13 years ago
Although it's not mentioned anywhere on the record, this is a synth-pop cover of Macho's "I'm A Man", a quintessential gay disco anthem from the late 70's. Frankly speaking, this mid-80's version is no match for the original 10-minutes-and-more disco ... See full review

All hail the mother-of-all-bitch-tracks ! FIERCE is the first word that come to my mind when listening to this eternal classic. This mixture of hard beats, well-chosen bits of samples (Sinnamon "I Need You Now") and Roxy's FIERCE spoken-word (about ... See full review

The "Walkin' On Sunshine '88" featured here is, to my mind, the best version of this electro classic. Housier than the previous versions, it features subtle samples from other 80's electro/pop classics (Thompson Twins' "In The Name Of Love", Living In A ... See full review

An essential funk/synthpop album, which is the perfect epitomy of Prince's then brilliant producer talent. My personal highlights here are Nasty Girl and I A Girl Answers (Don't Hang Up). The first seems to have been, well, a big "inspiration" for the ... See full review

A great cover of Eddie Kendricks' classic. Byron Stingily's falsetto adds a very impressive dramatic touch to the song, and the production, while staying close to the original, is pretty good. But the hidden treasure on this release is, without a doubt, ... See full review

A very honest track by the Brooklyn maestro. Honest, i.e. you're given what the title announces : Ibiza house. Well, the cut is well-crafted, top notch production, but is that really enough for someone like Dannny ? It sounds like Elements 2.0, with some ... See full review

One of my favorite Mary J cuts, very deep and classy. Puff Daddy uses a sample from "Money (Dollar Bill Y'all)", an early hip hop / electro classic by Jimmy Spicer, and turns it into a downtempo gem akin to his doper-than-dope remix of Method Man "I'll ... See full review

An INCREDIBLE electrofunk / uptempo dance cut by the master of groove. In the middle of the 80's a lot of 70's soul/funk legends were given the electro/synth pop treatment (Chaka Khan with her "I Feel For You" LP, Aretha Franklin with her Narada produced ... See full review
