A change in format...

Hey all!

I know it's been awhile and I've been trying to decide what to do with this blog as my posts keep disappearing and I keep getting emails from Blogger about how my blog is on their radar for some reason...So I've decided to change things up for a bit.

I hope that this doesn't ruffle any feathers out there!

I've just recently gotten the set up to rip the massive amount of vinyl that I have to mp3 and of course I've been working on that alot lately. So, what I've decided to do for the time being is to offer all you some FULL LENGTH vinyl rip packages.

I rip them, then try to remaster them for the best quality I can get. Sometimes the vinyl pressings are excellent, sometimes not, but for whatever songs I don't have good digital copies of or for tracks that weren't released digitally, this is how it will be for a bit.

I hope you all continue to support me on this endeavor and links will follow soon!

Thank you all for understanding!! I appreciate your tolerance and support!!!

I thought I told you it's enough. Put your hands on me again and I'll put your ass in handcuffs!!

Ok, so this isn't an Eddie Baez post or anything, but I had to put this picture up of him because he's just THAT hot! ::sweating::

Anyway :-P

This is going to be another short post because Im at home in Staten Island and most of my music these days is on the computer at the hubby's place.

Expect another big post soon tho!!

Kim Sozzi - Feel Your Love (Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Kim Sozzi once again gives us a great dance pop track here with a mildly funky feel but it seems like she just can't seem to re-create her fame from "Feelin Me" or "How Did You Know". This could be a fun early-set song, but I long for my peak hour Kim Sozzi again!**

Judy Torres - Hell No (Tony Moran & Warren Rigg Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**ANTHEM ALERT!!! I don't even know where to start with this one! It surprised the hell outta me as I grew up listening to Judy and while I loved her remake of "Faithfully" I was really hoping to get something original from her. Well her follow-up, the awkward "I Don't", was so below the radar I thought that would be it for her "comeback". I was COMPLETELY wrong! This may be one of my favorite tracks of 2008! Here Judy tackles the subject of spousal abuse (with a hysterical rap and all) and of course some killer F**k You lyrics like 'Hang up, get your stuff and don't look back! If he can't show you respect you better pack your bags!'! Tony and Warren have produced an Offer Nissim-esque mix here but it's thunderous and I very much welcome Miss Torres back to where she should be!!**

Marina - Searching For You (Mike Rizzo Original Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Mike Rizzo once again puts together a cute track for Marina here (which is very reminiscent of his Jenna Drey 'Killin Me' mix) which works well but I don't think it will be dominating the dancefloors any time soon.**

You always love me more...Miles Away...

Just a small posting for now to keep everyone going. I'm also going to try something a little different. I love editing mixes and all but I also love mashing things up and trying to create some of my own...

This is the newest one Im working on and while it still needs to have things tweaked (the track needs to be transposed still to make the chords the same key as the vocals) Im really happy with the structure of the mix itself.

So here's the first 3 minutes of it or so...Tell me what you all think!!

Suzanne Palmer - Luv 2 Luv 2009 (JM's Demo Clip)

Kristine W - Never (JM's Love To Infinity Radio Edit)
**I've been reading mixed reviews of this song and I don't know why! I love the vocal for this and while Love To Infinity hasn't changed their sound in quite sometime, I find it no more dated than anything Moto Blanco (or dare I even say The Freemasons with a few exceptions) has done recently. I can't wait for the other mixes of this to surface and if ANYONE can tell me why the hell we don't have Kristine's "Power Of Music" CD yet, I'd LOVE to know!!**

Two Secret Edits:

Everyone knows how I feel about posting this artists music, only because I don't want my blog to be shut down, so here you go...One's an exclusive and one's an old favorite of mine.

Hint: She's both Sticky and Sweet.

So just what the hell is going on here??

Wow. 2 months almost to the day it's been!!!

I have to apologize to you all but it's been a wild and bumpy road in my life lately. I've been having to switch schools (and btw if anyone ever thinks about going to a Paul Mitchell Partner School to pursue a career in hairdressing--DON'T DO IT!!! IT'S A WASTE OF MONEY!!!), work more hours and deal with alot of family drama that's been popping up left and right lately.

Which all translates into an exhausted John Michael and as much as I hate to admit it, my blog was one of the things that slipped through the cracks along the way.

I definitely want to come back and post more, but I apologize once again to you all, I'm going to have to keep requests CLOSED for the time being. I don't know how often I'll get to post but I will try my hardest. If and when the time should come again for requests, I will let you know.

Thank you for all your understanding...so let's get to the music!!! New post coming up soon!!!

And just to show you all I'm feeling better, I've taken my attention away from my normal David Beckham or Antonio Sabato Jr photos to highlight a new discovery I just made: Nick Youngquest, Rugby Star. ::drool::

I know it's been awhile everyone but I started a really crazy schedule after I got back from celebrating my anniversary and 3 days a week I do 12 hour days, so I'm gonna try to do what I can, but it may just take me some time to get stuff up! Thanks for understanding!!

The requests I've gotten will get worked on, but till then, I offer some random edits...

Oh and that pic? Yeah that's me from a LONG time ago when I was DJing at Heaven in NYC (2nd floor--Spinnin "X" by Junior Vasquez"--It's all about the vinyl baby!!) and I was probably like 22/23-ish! Ah the good ol days! Hah!!
Bob Sinclar presents Fireball - What I Want (Chris Cox Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This is a slammin new track from both Bob Sinclar and Chris Cox and it's getting alot of play and I'm sure you're gonna it! This is a really fun, albeit a little strange, male vocal here and Chris' production amps it up--ALOT!!**
Charlotte Perrelli - Hero (JM's Club Radio Edit)
**She looks like Kristine W and sounds like a love child of Jenna Drey, Danielle Bollinger and Lara Fabian. In her home country of Sweden, this won the 2008 Melodifestivalen (which is the contest that Sweden has to determine who's representing them in the Eurovision song contest) and when she got to the Eurovision contest she placed 18th. In the charts though this went right to #1 in Sweden and was in the top 20 of a few other countries. The song is a great vocal with a very electro, yet Soundfactory type sound to it. I don't know who actually produced this as I got it labeled as "Extended Club Mix" (does anyone know??) but it's a great song all over and needs to be recognized!!**
Chris Brown - Forever (JM's Bobby Bass & J Remy Radio Edit)
**This is definitely one of my new obsession songs (especially after seeing it on So You Think You Can Dance). I have to say, I'm really happy with the direction that pop/R&B music is going these days. They've got great beats with awesome synth work and hooks for days! This song in it's original form was just begging to come to the dance floor and through the work of Bobby Bass & J Remy it got there. Who they are, I'm not sure, but from all the mixes I've heard thus far this is definitely the best. It's got some beat changes and a really uplifiting sound that keeps with the original. In the beginning I added the original intro synths and the "1,2,3,4" chant to give it a little extra UMPH!**
Coldplay - Viva La Vida (JM's Telemitry Radio Edit)
**I LOVE THIS SONG!!! Finally, me and the hubby have another song we meet on! He's always been a huge Coldplay fan and well, I couldn't really care less about them lol...that is...till I heard this song!! I instantly fell in love with it because of it's melody and string line that they use as well as the song having a pretty steady beat to it. I've found a few mixes of this song (including that AWFUL cover that Almighty did--Good mix, just terrible female vocals) and as it stands, this is the best. I'm looking for the accapella for this song so I too can make my own mix--If anyone out there has it, I'd be EVER so greatful!! This mix though has some great vocal stutters and whoever Telemitry is, they are to be commended for making such a great mix with the original track which usually doesn't work out so well for most!**
Duffy - Mercy (JM's Gareth Wyn Radio Edit)
**This was a song I was sleeping on for awhile and then (again) I saw this on So You Think You Can Dance and fell in love with it. In it's original form, it's very Amy Winehouse-esque minus the whole Meth addiction lol. Gareth Wyn (whoever he may be) did a fantastic job in bringing this to the dance floor and it sounds so natural, something I would've never expected this song to sound like with a beat. Highly reccommended here!!!**
Earth, Wind & Fire - Boogie Wonderland (Bimbo Jones Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**It was bound to happen right?? Well it's finally come to be and I have to say while the original is a disco classic and all, it was never one of my favorites. Bimbo Jones however does have that magic touch and they gave this such a fresh sound that if it wasn't for the backup singers doing their "Dance! Boogie Wonderland" chanting, this could easily have been recording and produced yesterday. I swear I'm gonna make a "I Heart Bimbo Jones" t-shirt one day!**
Jennifer Hudson - Spotlight (Hotwheel Fidelity Mix) **Official Mix**
**I got this mix the other day and since the mix was only 4 min and change, there was nothing to edit for me. This is a slightly faster version than the original and the beat is very Michael Jackson "Billie Jean" and it's awesome! I wish there was a longer version of this!! Enjoy!!**
Rihanna - Disturbia (Aaron Paetsch Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I posted the Jody den Broeder even tho it wasn't my favorite and then I got this and I definitely like this one better. The production actually goes somewhere and Aaron really did a great job here with a really nice synth string line that runs through most of the mix.**
Sara Bareilles - Love Song (JM's Hommer Radio Edit)
**I have to admit, I really didn't care for this song when I first heard it--But glory be to Hommer (I still don't know who they are) for making this mix because I can definitely get sink my teeth into this now. It's a really cute song and I actually started this edit with the original version and then went into the Hommer mix. It's alot of fun so enjoy!!**
Tiffany - Just Another Day (Dave Aude Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Yes, THAT Tiffany. This is an ok song. I'm not thrilled by it, even tho Dave Aude does put out a good mix here but Tiffany's vocals sound a little uninspired. I know she can do better than this, I don't know what she's waiting for.**
Velvet - Take My Body Close (Pitchline Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Swedish singer Velvet (aka Jenny Marielle Pettersson) has been putting out some great music in her homeland since 2005 and this is her most recent effort and it's STUNNING!! Her voice is very solid and Pitcline's electro production is the perfect marriage of vocal and mix!! Another highly reccommended track!! If you enjoy September then I think you'll enjoy this as well!**
