America (The 10th Album) - reviewed on 03/31/01
Artist: MODERN TALKING
Label: 2001 BMG Berlin Music / Hansa (Germany)
Index #: 74321 85233-2
TALKING does not need introduction to true fans of classic sound
of 80's. During almost 20 years of making music DIETER BOHLEN
and THOMAS ANDERS brought countless hits that made them famous.
So, now you have 10th album in their discography and you are into
more surprise. The album entitled "America",
really shows fascination of this group by our country. With titles
like "Last Exit to Brooklyn", "America",
"New York City Girl" the American theme is present
in the album scattered here and there. The music is also special.
If you already checked the first single from the album "Win
The Race" you should understand what the album is alll
about. While you being blessed by dance tracks such "Win
The Race" or probably one of the best if not the best
"New York City Girl" you are
also being challenged by more nostalgic, contmorary ballad style in
such tracks like "Maria" done
in almost SADE-style with some LATINO touch or "Rain
In My Heart" done as slow, contemporary POP
style. The album is actually quite eclectic in terms of what type
of sound you are being served. You cannot and shouldn't compare this
one to previous albums. MODERN TALKING is definately in search
of the sound that could place them in mainstream POP.
It could be hard though. Not because the problem lies in music but
the way the group sings. The vocal arrangements might not fit the
mainstream POP, and God forbid if group
would consider changing it. After all MODERN TALKING retained
the sound we can recognize no matter what style music they play. So
taken together be prepared for more diversed sound and more visionary
mind plotted in here thanks not only to DIETER BOHLEN and THOMAS
ANDERS that wrote the music but also to
various producers including Luis Rodriguez who was with the group
from their launch or Axel Breitung responsible for many EURO
sound of the past and several other producers. In sound sampler I
featured six tunes. I tried to concentrate on DANCE
tunes in this albums, but again it might be misleading. The richness
of the album can only be appreciated when you have the album in your
hands. You are for a ride though! Enjoy!

Fly High - reviewed on 03/31/01
Artist: MY & MY
Label: 2001 EMI-Medley (Denmark)
Style: EURODANCE/EURO POP
Index #: EMI 5319382
Couple of weeks ago I
reviewed group's single "Fly High"
and I know your response was very positive. Well... now we have the
album by this very friendly Danish group. ME & MY are two
sisters: SUSANNE and PERNILLE GEORGI originally from
small city of Kolding. This duo is not new to POP scene. You might
recall their hit back from 1995 entitled "Dub
I Dub" that rocketed their popularity. The group so far
recorded three albums: "Me and My"
in 1995, "Let The Love Go On"
in 1999 and this third album "Fly High"
in 2001. This new album is really a great adventure to all of you
are seeking quality EURO sound. It features
songs done in EURODANCE style in it's
classic side and more updated enriched with synth line of EUROTRANCE
but not only that. Also quality EURO POP
could be found here as well. The girls really took control of this
album. Not only most tracks featured in here were written by them
but also produced. As a matter of fact as girls confessed the idea
of the album was born during their trip in Andorra (Europe). The production
and making the album was very spontaneous and girls wanted to deliver
a solid album that could be likeable right from the beginning. Did
they achieve this goal? You have to jugde it yourself. In my opinion,
they absolutely did. You should be familiar with the title song already.
Another tune "Sleeping My Day Away"
was just released as a single as well (the one I have features only
two versions: Radio and Instrumental, I hope there is other single
in production or maybe already out that features more mixes). This
is more like happy DANCE/POP tune with
nicely done melodic line. One of the best tune in the album is "Can't
Forget The Past". Very well produced EURODANCE/TRANCE
tune. Truly spectacular EURO is also
"Secret Garden". You will fall
in love with melodic line and dazzling synthsized galloping production.
"No Way" falls into EURO
category as well but with more pronounced TECHNO
side. So taken together great offering from Denmark securing this
country as one of the leading producers of quality DANCE
sound coming from Europe these days. In
sound sampler I featured six tunes. Enjoy the sound and get the album.
It might not be that long to see it's gone, so hurry!

Rhythm And Drums - reviewed on 03/24/01
Artist: COSMIC GATE
Label: 2001 EMI Electrola / Step By Step (Germany)
Style: TECHNO HOUSE / DRUM 'N' BASS
Index #: 0 7243 5 30978 2 0
COSMIC GATE is
a German project of two DJs: 29 years old NIC CHAGALL (real
name: CLAUSS TERHOEVEN) and 34 years old BOSSI (real
name: STEFAN BOSSEMS) both well known in TECHNO/TRANCE
scene. NIC's work include project: STRINGS OF HARMONY as well
as remixes for such artists/DJs as: SASH!, TAUCHER, TALLA 2XLC, U96
and many others. BOSSI also is very well known DJ with some
original background at... HIP-HOP and
RAP !!! No kidding! BOSSI releases
several of his own singles such: "Time
To Make The Floor Burn" or "Back
To Old School". As a project COSMIC GATE they released
four singles: "The Drums", "Mental
Atmosphere", "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and
most recently "Exploration Of Space".
In this recently released project's debut album all four titles are
featured. There are also some brand new tunes as well. Expect rather
heavy sound. The beginning of the album is actually done in transcendental
TRANCE with "Open
The Gate". This is just an intro though, after all the
name of the album suggests rhythm and drums ad libitum. If you like
project's new tune "Exploration of Space",
hold your horses. The featured Extended Mix is rather hard TECHNO
HOUSE with drums crowling all over the place. The TRANCE
part comes rather later. If you are into TECHNO
club-oriented sound, you are in right spot. With brand new tunes like
"Melt To The Ocean", "The Rhythm"
"Wicked" or "Running"
you are overloaded with bass and drums. There is really one exception,
and it is "Lost In Music" tune.
Slow melancholic TECHNO/TRANCE fare that
serves as an antract between storm of drums and hard synth beats all
along. Will you like it? That I do not know, but if you already heard
their tunes before, you know pretty much what to expect. In
sound sampler I featured six tunes. Let's dance !!!

Da Sound - reviewed on 03/10/01
Artist: DA BUZZ
Label: 2000 Edel Records AB (Sweden)
Index #: 0113292 ERE/ERE 113292
Some of you on the chatboard
demanded that this album should be reviewed. Well... Since I finally
was able to get my hands on it, I decided to give it a shut, morever
because the title song "Let Me Love You"
released also as a single is now getting it's own airplay. DA BUZZ
is relatively a new POP project from Sweden consisting of: ANNIKA
THÖRNQUIST, PER LINDÉN and PIER SCHMID. All
started back in 1998,when Pier and Per met in a studio. Both guys
were into different styles with Pier into Jazz, Soul and Funk and
Per devoted to Heavy Metal and Dance. They started working together
and wrote several songs. Annika was discovered by them when she played
in a local band in Karlstad, Sweden. Together group started playing
as a band and appeared LIVE on several occasions causing "buzz"
, that's where the group's name originated from. With two singles
and now the album group reached high position in Scandinavian charts
and "Let Me Love You" gave
them in December 2000 a GOLD plate. This song actually opens the album.
Written by Per, this is very happy crossover tune between mainstream
POP and DANCE.
As a matter of fact most of the tune featured in this album are done
in very similar way. No wonder most of them were written by Per anyway.
If you like quality HIGH-ENERGY stuff
you should check "Do You Want Me"
their very first song released as single or "Your
Love Will (Shine On Me)". Many songs are written in mainstream
POP style like "Paradise" or
"Tell Me Once Again". I
actually have one favorite song on this album "I
Wanna Be Free". Very nicely ala LA-CREAM track.
I have to admit ANNIKA's voice is very powerful and she really should
do tracks like that. With her vocal abilities she has bright future.
Taken together this album should satisfy most of you that like to
listen to some good quality DANCE as well as some POP tunes. Retrospective
view is not exactly the way to have this album consumed. In sound
sampler I am featuring six tunes taken from this album.

Tecno Fes 2 - reviewed on 03/04/01
Artist: GIGI D'AGOSTINO
Label: 2001 Media Records (Germany/Italy)
Index #: ZYX 20590-2
GIGI D'AGOSTINO is currently the most inflencial Italian DJ and composer. Not only that, he is also very productive and keeps releasing his albums quite frequently ("Tecno Fes 1" was released in the end of the last year). Most of the tracks in this album has been written by him, but there are some co-written by other writers. There is 12 tunes in this album and some of them you might actually heard on his album "L'Amour Toujours" like "L'amour Toujours" or "La Passion". As a matter of fact there are two versions of the latter mensioned tune called "La Passion Medley With Rectangle". Even if they do not have different name they do differ. The first version of this track that appeared as a second tune in this album has some DISCO feel in it even if it retaines it's TECHNO bassline. GIGI was very creative with this one indeed. Some "hall" effect makes this one a big room stunner. The second version featured as the last tune of this album is more close to an orginal but in dub flavor with really limited vocals. Speaking of DISCO, I was amazed that he decided to turn TECHNO the classic DISCO tune "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)". While nothing compares to original, I have to admit this basslines featured here are very interestingly arranged. Worth of mentioning are other tunes as well. For instance the intro track "Amorelettronico" is an exciting hybrid of TECHNO and pseudo-OPERA sound. The female vocal brings special, unique feeling to this monster. You will be delighted with it's ambient underline with some TRANCEY incarnations. I was particularly impressed with "Un Giorno Credi" tune. Truly an amazing big room production with scintillating bassline and beat. The drama progresses when track unveils itself. I think GIGI treats this series as his lab experience with sound. He tries different instruments, different sound exploring the possibilities. This shows how talented he is. For instance in "Le Serpente" he combines classic-folk harmony-based French sound with TECHNO beat. What a combination, and great outcome! Taken together great release from this Italian icon, and hopefully more are coming. I am sure of it, with his abilities we will hear more. In sound sampler I featured 6 tracks. Enjoy the album and buy it! Support his great and hard work!

Planet Colors - reviewed on 02/10/01
Artist: DJ BOBO
Label: 2001 EAMS Records (Germany)
Index #: EAMS 4020 2
Finally brand new album
by DJ BOBO. We all know him as Swiss King of Disco with many
albums intially recorded in EURODANCE
than shifted to mainstrea, TOP-40. DJ
BOBO has been recording music he likes yet he is trying to stay
in mainstream of commercial DANCE. This
brand new album is exactly it. I believe that the title of the album
itself could easily describe what we are being served. Various colors
of music, actually dance music. While many hardcore fans of DJ
BOBO based on his initial work might find this album less attractive,
new listeners should be pleased. DJ BOBO is exploring his way
of staying popular and he is succesfully achieving this task. The
music presented in this album is truly eclectic in the sense of featured
styles. Almost anyone can find something for themselves. Another "new"
thing is DJ BOBO singing (many of you might recall that in
all previous albums he rather rapped than sung). This seems sound
strange at the first moment, but only for you who knows his previous
work, but if you are new to his music, you will not care. The album
starts with EURO-REGGAE tune "Let
The Party Begin". Seems to me DJ BOBO got hooked
to this style. This one is a pleasant tune, with good back female
choir. Rhythmic and happy. DJ BOBO invited IRENE CARA
in his interpetation of her hugely popular tune "What
A Feeling". While the original version remains a CLASSIC,
DJ BOBO interpretation with "assistance" of IRENE
is unique. It is always hard to compare classic version with a "remake"
in most cases. So in this one. "Hard To
Say I'm Sorry" is carefully crafted POP
tune with incredible female vocals that makes this offering a powerful
dance tune. One of my favorites. For EURODANCE
fans, he offers "Moscow". This
is rather TRANCE/POP-influenced EURO
quite far from original DJ BOBO's EURO
sound. An example of DJ BOBO's attempt to combine sound of
the past with more modern synth-oriented sound. Also some HIP/R&B
oriented tunes are featured as well like "Say
It Again", where DJ BOBO lowered the beat of the
tune and does semi-RAP oriented singing. Taken together this album
might be a challenge to keep his devoted and new fans together. The
challenge in which every one of you are part. Listen to this album
and be open minded. Retrospective view is not exactly the way to have
this album consumed. In sound sampler I am featuring six tunes to
help you understanding what you might be dealing here with.

Index #: 7243 8 50677 0 9
DAMAE, COCO, MARIA RUBIA and EVA MARTINEZ are now back in debut album of FRAGMA "Toca" released just in last days of January 2001. In spite the fact that group originally released only two singles "Toca Me " and "Toca's Miracle" they immediately caught attention and both songs were played everywhere. Group recently released the third single recorded in EURO-TRANCE called "Everything You Need". All three singles are featured in album as well. (don't forget to check VIDEO section for clips to all of their singles). It is hard to identify exactly the style of music FRAGMA makes. Their production is indeed very original yet they are taking their inspiration from happy TRANCE, TECHNO and HOUSE with stunning use os synths and female vocals. This album gives you an additional insight to what the group of capable of. Amazing EURO-TRANCE with dramatic vocals and inspiring bottom. That's what can easily describe "You Are Alive". Another example of timeless synth lines, with amazing build-ups and breaks you will find in "Magic". Very EURO-oriented tune. For piano-jangled upbeat TECHNO-HOUSE visit "Do You Really Want To Feel It". Intoxicating melodic panache with mesmerizing bottom-line swirl and seductive female vocals. You also should check "Everybody Knows". Ibiza-style tune with some "beach-feeling". Beatiful indeed! Taken together this long awaited album is a reward. Mixes of good dance with few mind tickling tunes, makes this album an exciting offering that shouldn't be missed! In sound sampler I am featuring six tunes, all brand new. Get it! you shouldn't regret it!

Index #: BMSCD2006
The current queen of
Swedish DANCE TESS MATTISSON is
back in incredible album "One Love To
Justify" not to be missed. You should be familiar
with her because of another project she participated as main front
figure: LA CREAM under which she released several singles and
in 1999 a great EURO album entitled:
"Sound & Vision"
reviewed here in 1999 Reviews Section. This Swedish girl was born
on February 13th, 1978 and previously did some dancing acts for ROB´N
RAZ, BASIC ELEMENT, DR. ALBAN and DRÖMHUS. Now she
is back with her brand new solo album released on January 22, 2001
featuring many DANCE tracks to die for.
Any of you who wants or misses good EURODANCE
sound has to get it. It should satisfy fans of original EURODANCE
style but even more all of you who likes more updated EURO-TRANCE/TECHNO
sound. The album starts with her current single "One
Love" (see VIDEO
section for the clip to this tune). Magnificent tune. Incredible melody,
synth lines and the amazing TESS vocals all combined to make
this one a must! As a matter of fact this description would fit all
featured tunes. Tracks like "Stay",
"In My Dreams" or "Get The News" are truly
EURODANCE marvels. Her sound is a bit
different than the one she presented in LA CREAM album, however
"Crazy" has some reminescences
of "Cheatau D'Amour". The album
closes "Dope Groove" TECHNO/GROOVY
tune. Taken together great dance release. Unfortunately it has been
out in Scandinavian countries making it rather a "local"
release, but the quality of presented tune should be more accessible to everyone on earth.
So use the link below and buy this album to show that she can receive
a worldwide support. In sound sampler you will find 7 tracks and all
are brand new. Enjoy!

Die unbekannte dimension - reviewed on 02/03/01
Artist: DJ TAYLOR & FLOW
Label: 2000 Eams (Germany)
Index #: EAMS 4017 2
I have to apologize for
not reviewing this album, but somehow it's release was missed by me
and I have received this album just few days ago. Since it is still
available around and indeed it is a very good album I decided to review
it anyway. First couple words about the project. DJ TAYLOR &
FLOW are two brothers: FLORIAN and KONRAD SCHREYVOGL
originally born in Austria. Both guys for last five years keep producing
music from TECHNO/TRANCE edge. Their
'99 single "Gott Tanzte" was
present in virtually all dance charts all over the Europe. The group
brought a very unique sound, deep, masculine voice and quite interesting
and less common lyrics. Until now group had three singles: the one
I mentioned above followed by "Was ist
Zeit?" and "Exzess"
(released in June 2000). "Die unbekannte
dimension" is their debut album recorded in very popular
nowadays fusion of TECHNO and TRANCE.
You will find in this album all three mentioned singles as well as
9 new tunes all in good quality and fitting to what the formation
produced up-to-date. Album also features "All
In One" Megamix that contains all the tracks that appeared
on this album. The mix starts with mystic "Dimensionen"
opening for you the gates to DJ TAYLOR & FLOW world. Right
after this is very dynmaic "Ready - Set
- Go". Be prepared for fireworks of beats and hooks in
this one. This one will start you to stand up and dance. The title
tune "die unbekannte dimension" is
bringing more PROGRESSIVE sound with
tons of wild sound effects coming on you from every angle. If you
like high quality TRANCE, you gotta hear
"Progression". Absolutely stunning
tune and real treat for fans of this style. For some transcendental
journey through the space try "Millenium
Experience II". All together, this album is a showcase
of what both guys are capable of and again I am sorry I did review
so late. Hope you will be able to get a copy for yourself. It's worth
it! As of sound sampler I have decided to feature track 13 since it
contains all tracks in the mix. Enjoy your experience!

Land Of The Living - reviewed on 02/03/01
Artist: MILK INC.
Label: 2000 Antler Subway (Belgium)
Style: EURO TRANCE/POP
Index #: 7243 530720 2S AS 5900
This album was also released in 2000, but much later than DJ TAYLOR & FLOW album. MILK INC. is not a new comer to the scene. Group has been delivered ACID TECHNO sound in the past and now decided to shift more into EURO-TRANCE flavor by releasing highly acclaimed singles "Walk On Water" or the title song "Land Of The Living". Both were very good and set new standards for the EURO-TRANCE direction (don't forget to check VIDEO Section for clips of both tunes). So no wonder I was waiting for the album that I hoped to be THEE album based on what I already heard. So when I started to listen to it, I was prepared to be amazed, instead I was amused. If you wanted this album to be as both mentioned tracks, than you will not like it, but if you will accept more eclectic in sound album, than you got it. Album starts with "Never Again". High pitched TECHNO at least at the beginning followed by dramatic main body done more into POP/DANCE. Interesting. "Don't Cry" tune is relaxing R&B-like fare. Oh well, it didn't really got my seal of approval for the dance album, but hey... variety counts! Well after skipping this tune I went and checked "Livin' A Lie". This one is good, crossing NRG/EURO with rich full of synths buttom. After this I was challenged again by "For No Reason". What the heck? Is it HIP-HOP or something? C'mon! My skip button was at work again and I immediately was beamed to extremely well done and powerful tune "Sweet Surrender" featuring TONY HADLEY a new romantic icon from SPANDAU BALLET. This tune definately is one of the best. Also pleasurable is "Time Has Stood Still". Good EURO-TRANCE in solid production. "Loosing Love" is intoxicating, rumbling EURO-POP/TECHNO joy ride. As close as you might get to have exceptional dancable fare. The album is closing by Kevin Marshall's Trance Remix of "Land Of The Living". Honestly I still prefer the original version, but this particular mix is designed for clubs and as such will do the job well. To summarize the album, I will say it's you who has to make the decision if you want it or not. It has it's ups and downs but will definately be a good addendum for your music collection. In sound sampler I am featuring 6 tracks selected by NRGME (my friend who still has faith in me). Enjoy your experience!

Mother Earth - reviewed on 01/21/01
Artist: MARIO LOPEZ
Label: 2000 A45 Music (Germany)
Index #: 0112312A45
MARIO LOPEZ known
also as THOMAS SCHATZ is well recorgnized in TECHNO
industry. His two singles "The Sound Of
Nature" part I and part II became true anthems of TRANCE
scene. I was very eager to get my hands on his recently released album
"Mother Nature". I
simply wanted to know what else MARIO LOPEZ could contribute
to the genre. And oh my, was I happy! After listening to the entire
album I have plainly state that we got here pure beatiful TRANCE
in very solid album. Probably one of the best albums released in 2000.
Of course you will find here "The Sound
Of Nature" in both parts, but they were remixed. Plug'N'Play
remix brings more DRUM'N'BASS sound but
only in the beginning, than it will grow to full TRANCE
marvel. Another track you should know is also "Into
My Brain", he done before with R.E.D. S.E.C.T.O.R.
Two remixes of this tune are featured. All remaining tunes are brand
new and oh my, aren't they great? They are. The TRANCE
sound MARIO LOPEZ plays is the one I love. With beatiful synth
line and big room, almost opera house feeling his sound delivers special
cosmic and spiritual sense, that only him and few others can achieve.
"Liberate Yourself" is done
in similar fashion as "The Sound Of Nature"
with female narration and galloping synth bottom to drive you to exctasy.
"I've Got No Time" is a remake
of 1997 DJ CROW's tune. Featured Club mix is hard-charging,
floor-packing PROGRESSIVE/TRANCE fare
with absolutely dazzling synth lines. Crowd will crave over this one.
Guaranteed! "For Your Eyes Only"
is another TRANCE marvel. Galloping synths
in waves deliver yet another contemporary dance tune to die for. The
Drama unfolds during duration of this song. For more travel on synthesizered
wings take your journey with "Once In A
Lifetime". Fantastic from the start to finish, with sweeping
synth lines that quickly pick up hypnotic passion. You will not get
bored. No way! This album is perfect for all of you who enjoy travelling
to space with high-flying synth wings. Beatiful album as entire set.
In sound sampler I featured 6 tracks that were previously unreleased,
so you can check the new stuff from MARIO LOPEZ. Enjoy!

Dancemania presents E-ROTIC Megamix - reviewed on 01/13/01
Label: 2000 Intercord (Japan)
Index #: TOCP-64084
Quite late to review
this album released back in September 27th 2000, but I received it
today!!! I still decided to review it because I know E-ROTIC
has many fans and they are eager to hear news about this group. First
of all, even if I put this release in ALBUMS
section it is rather compilation of 26 tunes from all years E-ROTIC
has been on the market. As a matter of fact it would be easily called
"The Best of E-ROTIC In The Mix".
Anyway, if you don't know what "Dancemania"
is let me explain it shortly. This is very popular series released
on Intercord Japan bringing good dance tunes. It always has been good
source for dance floor. The only problem it is hard to get and of
course being released in Japan, is quite expenisve. E-ROTIC was featured
in this series many times. Since the group is very popular in Japan,
Issey Nisawa & Seki Sekimoti decided that would
be a great idea to bring the group back in one huge continuous megamix.
And HUGE it is! Almost 75 minutes of E-ROTIC! Can You handle
it? If you like the group and EURODANCE,
I am sure you will. As I mentioned mix features 26 songs and 6 of
them are brand new. 4 of them were written by David Brandes, Jane
Tempest and of course with words by John O'Flynn. 2 remaining
one are just one title "Cat's Eye"
and one of them is remixed by Fred Ventura himself (yes he
is still around but mostly in Japanese market). "Cat's
Eye" is written by Japanese writers Yuichiro Oda, Yoshiko
Miura and Kako Someya (for English version) and definately falls into
EUROBEAT style still very popular in
Japan. All other new songs are pure EURODANCE in style we know E-ROTIC
from very well. If you are fan of the group you know all the titles
feature, therefore in sound mix I featured only 5 songs and only previously
unreleased. In any case this album is a must both for E-ROTIC
fans as well as devoted lovers of EURODANCE.
It's going to be expensive if you want to get it (I paid almost $34.00
including postage from the link below), but again for some of you
such album can be priceless. Enjoy the sound and fine production not
to mention excellent mix together that will keep your party rolling.
Buy this album from CD Japan
01. Turn Me On
Rock The World - reviewed on 01/08/01
Label: 2000 Roadrunner Arcade Music (Sweden)
Index #: 955.064-2
still making some what we call true DANCE music. You are probably familiar
with A*TEENS bringing back some classics of ABBA. BUBBLES
is a Swedish teen girlsband with 5 singing cute young girls from Gothenburg
that were classmates in Academy of Ballet in that town. All five girls
have got both musical and dancing talent. Their first performance took
place in Liseberg (an amusement park in Gothenburg) back in 1999. They
had first single "(I'm A) Happy Girl"
and now their debut album. Very simple, almost naive, yet very catchy.
Songs written mostly by John Ballard and Alban Herlitz are simple and
melodic, fitting perfectly with very young voices (girls age is between
12-13 years). I was actually amazed by the quality of their voices.
Well prepared already. The album contains many, indeed dancable tunes.
It starts with dynamic "I'll Be There"
done in POP/DANCE style and is perfect
as an introduction to the world of BUBBLES. Following tune "Rock
The World" is getting close to more EURODANCE
oriented style. Very happy and cute tune. Quite similar in style is
also "I Have A Dream" and "(I
Am) Happy Girl". The latter one is getting close to BUBBLE-GUM
though. BUBBLES feel pretty good in other genres as well. For
instance "My Boyfriend" and "One
2 Six" can be easily classified as EURO-REGGAE.
Again both easy to listen and very catchy. Well... Not only that. They
also tried very fast EURO-NRG sound sported
in "Disco San Francisco". High
BPM will move you for sure! So taken together we have nice debut album
from new band on the market. Well, it doesn't matter what their future
will be, what's important is that the album was their dream and girls
put their hearts in it. That's why it is refreshing, and you can feel,
almost touch their passion for the music. I wish them all the best!
I picked 6 tracks for sound sampler. Enjoy!
