More Officials

Im posting all this to buy me time since I haven't had a ton of time to sit down in front of the computer to edit in awhile...I hope you'll forgive me!

LeAnn Rimes - We Can (Widelife Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've said it before and I'll say it again--LeAnn sounds BEST on the dancefloor and thanks to Widelife they made it happen!**

LeAnn Rimes - Tic Toc (Thunderpuss Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**LeAnn tackles something we never thought we'd hear her sing about--SEX! Thunderpuss of course rips through this literally makes a dancefloor orgasm! This is one of the best mixes LeAnn's ever gotten!**

Emma Bunton - All I Need To Know (Bimbo Jones Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I feel like she just doesn't get enough credit. She has a great voice, writes her own stuff and still nothing. Well, Bimbo Jones took this sweet ballad and transformed it in a way that only they can. The result of course, is gold. THIS FILE IS IN M4A FORMAT!**

Tamyra Gray - Raindrops Will Fall (Hex Hector & Mac Quayle Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I would love to see the day where someone from American Idol teams up with the hottest dance music producers out there and releases a slammin cd of hits! Tamyra has the voice but apparently not the following. We did however get this great mix for her one single before dissappearing into the relatively unknown. Hex & Mac are always a sure fire combo and this is no exception. ANTHEM!**

Natasha Bedingfield - These Words (Bimbo Jones Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've always loved this song. Thanks Bimbo.**

Natasha Bedingfield - Soulmate (Bimbo Jones Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Im glad that Bimbo took this song on because although it wasn't released as a single, this is one of my favorite tracks off her N.B./Pocketful Of Sunshine CD.**

Junior Vasquez feat Anna Nicole Smith - Anna's Theme (Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**In Junior's own words: "It's Junior. Just wanted to let you know that the mix is fucking phenomenal. It sounds amazing." And it does. It really does. RIP ANNA**

Andreas Johnson - Go For The Soul (Soundfactory Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I'm totally addicted to S-Pop (Swedish Pop) and Andreas cranks out some great stuff. He gave us the hit 'Glorious' back in the day and now, with the help of Soundfactory, gives us another great vocal. Kinda cheesy but I love it!**

Emma Bunton - Maybe (Almighty Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This is my fave Emma mix. The original was a total throwback to the mod-60's-era and i was surprised to see how Almighty tackled it. Of course it's a hi-nrg track! Go Almighty go!**

Tatu - Not Gonna Get Us (Dave Aude Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Everyone's favorite faux-lesbian duo gave us a great song and Dave Aude rocked it into a anthem!! Throw your hands in the air with this one!**

Jonas Brothers - When You Look Me In The Eyes (Jason Nevins Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I dont understand the appeal here and Jason could've done better with this but here it is anyway. It never really takes off for me and even though they sound like 3 12 year old Shania Twain's you can decide.**

Just a little bit more for now

So since I've been busting my ass in school (cause I'm such a good student! lol) I haven't gotten to post in awhile nor have I been able to get to requests, but they are all duly noted and will be done SOMEtime!!

For now, I offer these...

Debbie Holliday - Bring It On (JM's Joe Bermudez Radio Edit)
**ANTHEM!!! Gotta love Debbie, especially when she sings "Does anybody want it? Does anybody need it tonight? I do! I do! I do! I do!" and lemme tell ya--You will too!! Great thumper here from Joe Bermudez who I actually had the pleasure of opening for at Boulevard in NYC a few years back! A great remixer, cute and such a nice guy as well!!**

Ivry Lider - Beautiful Eyes (JM's Offer Nissim Oriental Radio Reconstruction)
**DOES ANYONE HAVE THE FULL LENGTH OF THIS!!??? I heard this a number of years and became obsessed. Granted, it's not in English (it's in Hebrew) but the beats are HOT!! Unfortunately I only have this song that I ripped from a compilation released by Offer over in Israel. And Ivry's voice is hot as hell...It doesn't really matter what language it's in.**

Laszlo Panaflex - Dance To The Music (JM's Luis Erre Babylon Radio Edit)
**Can Luis Erre do any wrong? I've yet to find a mix of his I don't like. His sound is tough enough and rugged around the edges that it could easily be worked into any Saturday night in NYC. And I know that this was a Star 69 record originally, but sorry, this mix easily blows all the others away.**

Offer Nissim feat Maya - Alone (JM's Roie-Asi Mixshow Edit)
**This is easily the best song these two have ever collaborated on. The vocals, the lyrics, Offer's production all add up to pure gold. Roie Yamin made a gorgeous intro for the mix and Asi Givati added some SICK electric guitar over Offer's original mix which takes it all to the next level. I can't listen to the original without the guitar. I combined Asi's mix with Roie's intro to make this. It's a hard song to edit, especially with the guitar in it so I left alot of it alone which is why I labeled this as a mixshow.**

Offer Nissim feat Maya - On My Own (JM's Tony Moran Radio Mix)
**Another stunner by Offer & Maya--And btw I urge you all to get your hands on the new Offer compilation "Happy People" if for no other reason than the Offer/Maya tracks as well as Offer's INCREDIBLE take on Shirley Bassey's "La Passione". However, this mix got a great treatment by Tony Moran and while it's not amazingly different than the original, Tony's beat does give it a little something special.**

Rich Luzzi - It's Over (JM's Eddie Baez Radio Edit)
**This is a GREAT song by Rich (who gave us the anthem "Without You") and this was intended for a full release which never saw the light of day. All I have is this so-so quality version. If anyone has a better copy, it would be greatly appreciated! But till then, enjoy this one. I gag when Rich (who's hot as hell!) says "You've run out of time/You're just fucking with my mind/Well just walk right out that door/Cause our love don't live here no more" ::drool::**

Mariah, Madonna...and of course, more edits!!

I would like to remind everyone (even tho most of you are so sweet to me!) that I do all this work and write this blog because it's a labor of love. As a fellow blogger wrote recently, I too have a life outside of here and it takes me time to get these done. Also, when it comes to requests, I don't mind taking them as long as they are ASKED for. Making shopping lists of edits is a sure fire way to NOT get them done.

I try my hardest to get to everyone's requests and emails and to respond with the pleasantries everyone shows me but to make a list of edits as if they were demands--No good. For those people this applies to, if this keeps up, your requests will be ignored. I don't want to have to be this way but I feel like asking nicely hasn't worked.

Now, before anyone gets dissappointed, This posting will not have any mixes by the two M's, but I had to take a minute to talk about some things and get it off my chest...

First - Madonna's new video with Justin Timberlake.

Ok, so I'll start off by admitting that I do love this song! It's everything you've come to expect from Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. It makes you sing along and you just can't help but move to it as well.

Now, here's my issue. Madonna, now in her 50's, looks great for her age. She really does. Her body is toned like the body of a 25 year old. However, her face is WAY too stoic. I feel like she's lost her ability to have facial expressions. She HAD to have had some kind of work done because she almost doesn't look like herself anymore.

There are some good moments here and there. A glance at the camera, a little bit of fancy footwork, but over all I feel that having her in that video, with that kind of song, next to Justin Timberlake, just makes her look older. Not only that but I feel like Justin didn't dance half as much as he normally does as to not upstage Madonna who's dances were "cute" but over all kinda boring.

Granted, she can still jump on cars and run around with him and not look tired--and bravo for her--but there are some moments when it looks like they're trying to have some sexual tension and for me thats just a no-go. So here's to you Mrs Robinson! I hope that she can age a little bit more gracefully than this...

Second - Mariah's "E=MC2" CD.

It's here! It leaked! THANK GOD!!! THIS. CD. IS. FLAWLESS!!!!! I just can't get enough!!! If you can find it, get it! If you can't buy it! Even if you've gotten the leak--Buy it anyway!! Mariah has really outdone herself this time and I dare to say that I enjoy this CD as much, if not more, than "Emancipation".

Fave Tracks: "Migrate", "Touch My Body", "Side Effects" (INCREDIBLE!!), "I Stay In Love", "That Chick", "Love Story", "Bye Bye", "Thankx 4 Nothin"... But they're ALL amazing!!

How can you argue with lyrics like "See I'm on my way home/Cause my jeans, yeah they fit/But it might benefit/Me to throw something on/To feature my hips/Accentuate my tits/And steal the show." in "Migrate"??

I love her. Always have always will. This will be another platinum record for sure!!

...And now for the edits!!

Tamia - Me (Soul Seekerz Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've always loved her! Even before she hit the mainstream with "Stranger In My House" and she had her R&B hit "So In Love" and then when JP mixed her song "Can't Go For That" I knew the dancefloor wasn't done with her. She's had a good string of remixes and this one is just one more for the catalog. The Rosabel mix seemed to be the one of choice for most people and while that one is a nice big room, I definitely prefer this mix. Soul Seekerz = Gold.**

Tamia - Me (Rosabel Radio Edit) **Official Edit**

Aubrey - Stand Still (JM's Dezrok Radio Edit)
**This is THE Aubrey song! Out of everything she's ever released, by far this is the best. This ruled the dancefloor for so long and it's easy to see why! The opening is amazing and the song has some great abstract lyrics like "I stepped outside myself today and took a walk around/ I wandered from path to path/Without making a sound...". Dezrok killed this one! Sick production!!**

Cher - Different Kind Of Love Song (JM's Johnny Rocks Radio Edit)
**There never is and never will be anyone quite like this woman. While the "Believe" album dominated the charts, I always favored her follow-up "Living Proof". Still sticking with the dance/pop feel this album had more emotion in it than "Believe" did and we got a great remix package for this song which included Johnny Rocks, Rosabel and Craig C among others. Rosabel's was great and Craig C's was cute as well but Johnny Rocks kept with most of the original formula of the song which I always preferred.**

Cher - The Music's No Good Without You (JM's Walter Taieb Radio Edit)
**This is quite possibly one of the strangest mixes I've ever heard but I find it to be so intriguing I had to include it. It's not a full vocal but it's got a great beat and some really interesting elements you don't hear very often. It's funky and abstract so check it out and tell me what you think!**

Donna Summer - Power Of Love (JM's Offer Nissim Radio Edit)
**This is some great Offer production here!! Donna took on the classic Luther Vandross song and of course, anything she sings is awaits the dancefloor transformation and it couldn't have been covered better than this. A gorgeous intro and a thumping beat here, Donna sounds as current now as she did in the 70's. Long Live Summer!!**

Loleatta Holloway - Love Sensation 2006 (JM's Hi-Tack Radio Edit)
**What can I say about this really? Loleatta's trademark wailing never gets old for me and while this song has been sampled umpteen times it still works with every treatment it gets. This by far is the best one out there. Hi-Tack/Beatfreakz have the knack (although formulaic) to make throw your hands in the air anthems like no one else does these days. This mix is a STOMPER from start to finish!! "YOU GET DOWN!!!!"**

Paula Abdul - Dance Like There's No Tomorrow (JM's Soul Seekerz Radio Edit)
**We all remember I was burnt and posted the full mix a few posts back, well here's the edit! Haha! Sorry!!**

ReAct - Let's Go All The Way (JM's Johnny Vicious Club Dub Radio Edit)
**When this song hit the NYC club scene it exploded! It was used in advertisements for clubs all over the area and even made it's way to 103.5 KTU. When KTU aired it they had an edit that used both Johnny Vicious' Vocal Mix as well as the Dub which was just as big if not bigger than the vocal. So in that spirit I tried to recreate that edit here.**

Superchumbo - Irresistable (JM's Junior Vasquez Earth Radio Edit)
**One of my top 10 favorite Junior mixes EVER!! This one tore through the dancefloor at Exit everytime he played it and even now it gives me chills. I promise you won't be dissappointed!**

The Cliks - Cry Me A River (JM's Tracy Young Radio Edit)
**I got sent this randomly and apparently this Toronto based band (who all look like they could be Zac Efrons body doubles) are known for their reworking of this Justin Timberlake song. And now Tracy Young has reworked their...uh...rework! Interesting but JT's still got the franchise on this. However, Tracy's mix with JT's vocals would be gold.**

Veronica - Someone To Hold (JM's Johnny Vicious Extended Radio Mix)
**I've tackled this song so many times and each time I do I get a little bit better with it lol! This is a monster anthem and it's hard to chop out things in it, but here's my latest effort. Hope you enjoy it!**
