Bob Sinclar - The Beat Goes On - Vendetta 12"
This rare Italian 12" collects the best remixes of Bob's smash dancefloor hit into one nice package. The Defected UK release had the remixes spread over 3 separate 12" singles, while this one only has the best mixes.
There's the electro disco of Bob's Original Mix; Junior Jack drops another trippy remix similar to his rework of "Shake It Baby" by DJD, and Roger Sanchez turns the track into a funky chunky tribal affair. Look out for mixes of the new single "Kiss My Eyes" soon to be in stores.

Craig David - Rise and Fall - Wildstar 12"
The original mix of this track featured Sting, who is nowhere to be heard on this remix package. On the A side, Kings of Soul turn out a mix quite appropriate for their name. It's sweet soulful House, though to me it's not that interesting. The B-Side features MJ Cole's mix, which is a wicked 4x4 Bumpy UK Garage style. Cut up vocals, guitar stabs and an MC help make this a perfect mix, which is my choice for the dancefloor.

Planet Funk - Who Said (Stuck In The UK) - Bustin' Loose 12"
Who Said is the latest single from this Anglo/Italo band, and it's a mashup between Rock and House. Both versions are wicked, with the irresistably catchy Album Version plus a re-rub from Moguai on the flip. Interesting enough, instead of a driving Trancer, Moguai decided to keep the original vibe and just pump up the groove while playing around with the vocals. I like this one a lot...Hopefully we'll see the Full-Length album from Planet Funk surface on our shores.

Frances Nero vs. K-Klass - Footsteps - SuSu 12" Test Pressing
Oh, how I live for songs like this! K-Klass turn this Frances Nero soul jam into a full-fledged disco track! Luscious strings, guitars and drums combine with her vocals to make a true Nu-Disco gem. I've been trying to find a copy of this with the full vocals ever since SuSu put out their sampler 2 x 12", and I'm grateful to have finally found it! Although this might not be for everyone, it's a Sanfrandisco classic!
