Title: Summer Megamix 2005 reviewed on 10/17/05
Label: 2005 More Music / Edel (Germany)
Style: Dance
Index #: 0000582MOM
Review:
Summer Megamix 2005 Many of you are familiar with great bootlegs from DJ DEEP and DJ STUDIO 33. Now, as you know they do legit work. As a results there are several series they author. Example is this hot seller, top notch dance compilation "SUMMER MEGAMIX 2005" released back in July 2005. As the name of the compilation indicates this release was just to have your summer time filled with great dance tunes. Well... I know I am late with introducing it to you, but trust me. It will work great for colder nights of Autumn and will warm you during Winter time. This release is a double CD compilation featuring 71 tunes. DJ DEEP have chosen DANCE tunes from various genres. They are simply fan to listen to and dance to. Perfect to have with you in your car or to have as party aid. If you like ELECTRONICA ala BENASSI BROS, "No Milk Today" by ROYAL GIGOLOS is for you. If you like "updated" sound of some classics, you should like "One Night In Bangkok" by VINYLSHAKERZ, "Popcorn" by WARM UP (no it is not by notorious CRAZY FROG), or done in TECHNO/TRANCE classic Russian folk song "Kalinka". There is even HERMES HOUSE BAND (very famous in 70's and 80's) with updated "Hit The Road Jack" megahit. There some galloping TRANCE hits such as "Por Qe No" by UNITED BEATS for example. There are also some BEAT BREAK /HIP HOUSE / R&B tunes such as "Booty Killer" by MR. Z or "Jingo's Theme" by DAVID FASCHER feat. FREEMAN & LINCOLN to name the few. HAJDUCII (famous because of "Dragostea Din Tei" tune) is back with interesting but not exactly hit material "Nara Nara Na Na". BOOM BOX vs. LINDA is cashing on O-ZONE's popularity by recording in the similar style "Balla Da Li". It is pointless to present each song, but you got an idea. Melting pot of true, pure dancing experience. I prepared extended sound sampler with 17 tunes taken from both CD. I did not make any cuts from original length of each title featured and mixing was retained. Get this set ASAP.

Title: Trance Megamix Vol. 5 reviewed on 10/17/05
Label: 2005 More Music / ZYX (Germany)
Style: Techno/Trance
Index #: DNT 10160-2
Review:
Trance Megamix - Volume 5 Here is the yet another compilation mixed by DJ DEEP entitled "TRANCE MEGAMIX - vol. 5" released on January 31st 2005. I know it was quite long time ago, but I had to present it to you anyway. I hope you already got it, if not, you still might get it from Amazon.com. There is brand new vol. 6 released at the end of August which is in the mail, and I promise to review it shortly. So let's come back to volume 5. This double CD set is for all of you who take TRANCE music lightly. Not exactly heavy club, underground style in here. It is simply great "hands-in-the-air" set of 74 TRANCE/VOCAL TRANCE/EURO TRANCE tunes mixed to your dancing and listening pleasure. So SYLVER with "Love Is An Angel" is here, "You Play Me Like A Jojo", an oustanding BIG ROOM TRANCE extravaganza by MARIO LOPEZ is here as well. As a matter of fact it is pointless to name tracks. First they are in very short length (how would you otherwise fit 37 tunes per CD), secondly, the important feature is to retain flawless TRANCE experience. DJ DEEP with choices of tunes, his mixing technique and usage of gingles, simply achieves that in flying colors. I do collect this series, not only because it is done by DJ DEEP, but also because of it's quality. I really like TRANCE music, and this is a light version I carry in my car, when I am driving. I prepared mix with 16 tunes taken from both CD with original length of tracks and mixing retained. Listen to this sampler to get an idea what you are missing from your collection. Enjoy the sound!

Title: EuroDanceHits.com presents MIRROR BALL Anthems reviewed on 10/10/05
Label: 2005 KLONE Records (Germany)
Style: Dance
Index #: CDKOPY 161
Review:

EuroDanceHits.com presents MIRROR BALL Anthems This extremely hard for me to review this release because it has our rubber stamp, so I am partial. On the other hand, you should expect great release just because it is rubber stamped by us here in EuroDanceHits.com. This truly product of love for dance music is brought by UK mega dance label KLONE RECORDS. "EuroDanceHits.com presents MIRROR BALL Anthems " is truly a unique release. It showcases 20 full length dance tunes from across the length of Europe. This amazing selection represents hard to find imports both in the UK and here in the US. Among 20 titles on both CDs you will find great sound, great groups. It is truly DANCE POWER PACK to die for. The first CD starts with an ultimate summer anthem "A Day In The Sun" by RIMINI PROJECT. Next is DUSTY SPRINGFIELD's cover of "I Only Wanna Be With You" smash hit done in NRG/HOUSE bouncy style by 2 SMALL DJs. It's fun to see what this classic got transformed to. I am not sure if profanity was a good choice in lyrics, but hey! after all it is remix in 2005. :-). Current EURO/TRANCE trend is represented by "Into A Fantasy" by C-BASE meets DJ TONKA. We have chosen CJ Stone & Mr. Phillips Vocal Club Mix, because of EURO bass lines, haunting melody and angelic female vocals. All these ingredients are must-to-have in this style. Speaking of uplifting EURO/TRANCE, you also have to check "Feel Free" by Austrian MARC KORN. Incredible melody and production. Great dance tune. I have an incredible pleasure to present you SYSTEMS IN BLUE in their track "Winner". Members of this project were behind MODERN TALKING and BLUE SYSTEM. So if you missed the their sound, here is deja vu served on the plate. Stay tuned for the review of their recently released debut album. Speaking or classic NRG sound, there are some other remakes. You should check YAMBOO with their uplifting interpretation of ERASURE's "Oh L'Amour". The first CD completes late LAURA BRANIGAN's with the EuroDanceHits.com Hit #1 and her last original hit "The Challenge". "Amazing Life" by DJ BOBO opens equally exciting second CD. Finally we got pure EURO ENERGY fare from this dance icon. Next is "So Many Men So Little Time", probably one of the most famous and love NRG tune from 80's. Italian PREZIOSO & MARVIN gave this immortal track new dimension yet they were able to retain the sophistication of the original sound. Now you are being served this in updated to 2005 NRG/HOUSE combo sound. Immortal "Words" has been brought again to life. This time F.R. DAVID's classic received an amazing, gloriously galloping treatment from German project: 89-ERS. Another "come-back" this time in strong EURO/TECHNO appeal is represented by "Mr. Tambourine Man". This BYRDS classic got a true "face-lift". Hands in the air type of tune you all want to dance to. Other tunes you have to check out are stunningly done "Tears In My Eyes" by DJ RAMON ZERRANO and MARC KORN (very GROOVE COVERAGE alike) , "My World" by emerged from neverland, famous ICE MC and finally, a true NRG anthem in it's 2005 edition "Never Can Say Goodbye" by DISCO diva GLORIA GAYNOR. Inspired EURO TRANCE production brings this classic anthem into modern club world and keep immortal. Taken together, I hope you all will enjoy this set. Big thanks go to JASON DAVIS who was leading this project on EuroDanceHits.com side and ANNE PAXTON from KLONE Records who believes in power of dance music and decided to give a green light and sponsor this project. To assure future volumes, the sale of this set must be a success. So support the artists, the music and this site by buying this compilation. We will try our best to bring you the sound you can hardly can get anywhere else. I have prepared extended mix lasting more than 20 minutes and containing 12 tunes taken from both CDs. It is just a sampler thought, nothing will replace the original. For the time being enjoy this mix.

Title: Trancemaster 4008 reviewed on 10/10/05
Label: 2005 Vision Soundcarriers / Rough Trade (Germany)
Style: Big Room Trance
Index #: 302 4128.2
Review:

TRANCEMASTER 4008 Newest release from VISION SOUNDCARRIERS "Trancemaster 4008" is an instant winner for all of you who are into club oriented TRANCE sound. Set delivers 21 full blow clubbing experience that is unique. Selection is as usually outstanding for this top notch series. First CD starts with "Moonwalk" by T4L. This mind blowing fare dellivers powerfully passionate electronica ready to explode upfront of your face. Beautifully crafted BIG ROOM TRANCE. An excellent beginning for the journey you won't forget. Actually there is also "Perfect Blind" fare by the same project featured on second CD, but this latter one lacks originality, yet still remains a good club experience. ARMIN VAN BUUREN has been featured with his "Zocalo" tune. An interesting, dark fare deeping into TRANCE-land. It does not bring typical gothic sound but rather peaceful, and on the chill-out side melodic baseline. "Static Bullet" by DJ TON T.B. brings galloping electronica underlined by seductive synth work. I like this sound. Would do great in club to put TRANCE crowd to a higher state of unconsciousness if you will. I recommend "Summerscape" track by STONEFACE & TERMINAL. This one is done in almost CATHEDRAL TRANCE style. Very rich and powerfull tune with beauty within. I regret though that this is one of the shortest track from both CDs. It lasts around 4:30 mins and it is not enough. It left me with desire to hear more. "Red Vision" by GENIX falls into category of GOA TRANCE. This very unique underground style is for connoisseurs of TRANCE sound, so is this tune. Incredible synth work and angeli vocal adds the velvet yet sharp feel. Mesmerizing power that takes the electronica to new heights. Next is KENNY HAYES in "Daybreaker". This tune has been remixed by AIRBASE. As much as I listen to TRANCE these days I am having my favorite "remixers". One of them is AIRBASE. They always deliver a hot and particularly impressive TRANCE sound. This is not different. You will love the monsterous track with mind-blowing electronic experience. I love every second of it. The first CD completes with "Trinity" by ACE DA BRAIN. This BIG ROOM TRANCE fare became almost an anthem in TRANCE club scene everywhere. Obscene in it's beauty with lucious hooks and melodic line. Peak-hour monster! The second CD start with "Opus 17" by RANK 1. This tune holds a record in length. It is the longest tune among those featured in both CDs. More than 10 minutes of pure and high quality TRANCE experience. I have to commend RANK 1 for being one of the most interesting and consistent projects in this genre. This fare is truly beautiful. Within 10 minutes you will enounter high speed but also low beat. Mood will change few times. Great club experience. No doubt about it. There are other tunes that I should mention as well, but I am sure you already got an idea whay kind of set you are experiencing. Another great release from this series you cannot miss. For now enjoy sound sampler with mix of 12 tunes taken from both CDs.
