Another year is upon us, and as usual we’ve got lots of brand new choons to get us started!
First up on the January 2004 dance chart is an energetic vocal dance/euro track by The Force – Paradise & Dreams. I don’t know too much about the people behind this track, but I think it’s the AATW crowd who brought us the likes of Flip n’ Fill and Ultrabeat. If you like them, you’ll like this. A very close second is Matt Darey with an awesome track called “Voice Of Angel”. Marcella Woods provides the haunting lyrics accompanied by top class production. Gets a UK release on Monday 12 January.
Take a great U2 track – “With Or Without You”, sample it, drop an awesome dance beat over it, add a sample from Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?” and what do you get? A surefire hit! “Take Me To The Clouds Above” by LMC vs U2 is at number 3 on our chart. Although the sample from U2 is original, the lyrics on the track are actually sung by Rachel MacFarlane – but it doesn’t matter – this song rocks! It’s out at the end of January in the UK.
At number 4 is a very radio friendly track which is just taking off in Europe right now. Dr Kucho Feat Jodie – It’s All About You (Bob Sinclair Edit) comes from the Bruce Elliott Smith stable and features mixes from Bob Sinclair. The video for this track is currently being made in London – we’ll try and grab the link just as soon as it’s out!
Back to more uplifting vocal trance next – Pascal Feat. Karen Parry – This Will Be (The Best Days Of Our Lives)(Voodoo & Serano Mix) is another catchy track which will again please fans who like their Euro. It features at number 5, closely followed by the new Flip n’ Fill track – Irish Blue. Other awesome tracks to check out include great remixes of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Rachel Stevens, Louise & The Sugababes. What a great way to start 2004!
