The Return!!

Sorry everyone!! I know I know...It's been awhile...etc...lol...Blah blah blah school...Blah blah blah house hunting...and ok! Now that we're all caught up--Here's some music!!! Hahaha!

Hope you enjoy!!!!!

Enrique Iglasias - Can You Hear Me (Moto Blanco Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Poor Enrique! He always seems like the red-headed stepchild of pop music. I've always enjoyed his music. Even when he covered Ringside's "Tired Of Being Sorry" (Ringside's was better--Especially the Deep Influence mix.) and yet his stuff never seems to break here. Well, this time, courtesy of Moto Blanco, we have an awesome summer anthem that's guaranteed to make a crowd feel good!!**

Rihanna - Take A Bow (Tony Moran & Warren Rigg Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**The golden girl of pop music has done it again and does anyone ever doubt getting a solid mix from Tony and Warren? All of the above parties should take their respective bows. This one should carry us through the summer, so plan on hearing it alot!**

Basshunter - Please Don't Go (Wideboys Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I LOVED this song the first time around when it was done by KWS!! I was just waiting for an update and thanks to Basshunter we've got one! Granted, the original vocals were much better and as much as Basshunter tried, their accent still comes through pretty strongly, but it's a great mix once again from the Wideboys just in time for summer!**

Britney Spears - Gimme More (JM's Wayne G Full Stay Rehab Radio Edit)
**I know I've uploaded HOW many mixes of this, but I like this edit alot. Wayne G's beat is sick on this one and I overlayed the dub over the vocal and made the beat stronger and the addition of the dub synths over the vocals was a nice effect I got.**

Colton Ford - The Way You Love Me (Craig C Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Colton has a great voice but he gets a bad rap I think because of his porn star past. This is his latest offering which got a cute treatment by Craig C. It's not my favorite but this is the one I like the best of all the mixes I've heard. Even this edit could've been tightened up a bit but I left it alone. It feels more like a dub but so be it.**

Darren Hayes - Me, Myself & I (JM's Wayne G & Andy Allder Radio Edit)
**I love me some Darren and Wayne G rocked it with this one as usual! I know this was a request from some time ago so I hope whoever requested it is happy! This is a fun electro-esque mix which works well with Darren's falsetto.**

Jason & DeMarco - It's Okay (Scotty K Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've enjoyed alot of Scotty's mixes and this one is good, but I'm lukewarm to it cause Jason & DeMarco's voices are a little too pretty for my liking. Talented guys and as gay as the day is long, but while this sounds like something you'd hear at the White Party during the Fireworks, their vocals are a little thin for me. You make the call.**

Kim Sozzi - Like A Star (Peter Lutz Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've always loved Kim and I really wanted to like this as well because I used to be a fan of Peter Luts as well, but I find this offering a little weak. Kim sounds good but the song doesn't really do much for me. And ever since Peter released that travesty that was "What A Feeling" feat Domenico or whoever it was, I kinda lost a little respect for him as well. I hope we get something better from her this summer.**

Donna Summer - Stamp Your Feet (Jason Nevins Edit) **Official Edit**
**I LOVE this song!! The original is sooooooo good!! It's wonderful to have Donna back where she belongs. However, of all the mixes I've heard I actually enjoy the Escape & Colluccio mix the best. This is the only edit I have and until I get the time to make an edit for the other mix, this is all of I've got! Haha! Jason's is ok at best, but his mixes lately just seem a little cookie cutter for me. Donna still sounds amazing tho!**

Daniel Bedingfield - If You're Not The One (Metro Ultra Pop Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I've always loved this song and even though Daniel isn't around in the US anymore and we've traded him up for his sister Natasha, this mix still makes me happy. It's Metro. It's cute. It's pop. I heart it!**

Andreas Johnson & Carola Haggkvist - One Love (Soundfactory Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I love me some SwePop (Swedish Pop) and these are two of the biggest artists goin out there. As Soundfactory's remixes make me drool, this one is no exception. It's cheesy and I love every minute of it!**

Sanna Nielsen - Empty Room (Soundfactory Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**THIS SONG IS AMAZING!!! I looooooooooooove it! SO one of my faves right now!! Sanna has a beautiful voice and again, Soundfactory rocked it out!! This too I could hear at a White Party.**

Therese Andersson - When You Need Me (Soundfactory Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**CRAZY vocal effects here!!!! There's a very interesting mix of pop effects with operatic vocals scattered throughout as well. It all makes for an interesting ride. I would LOVE to hear this one out!**

Random Stuff

Again, my apologies go out to you all because it's been so long, but on top of school Im house hunting as well--The longest experience of my LIFE!!! But it will be very exciting when it's done...

Hope these hold you over...

1 Plus 1 - Cherrybomb (Hex Hector Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I posted another song this now-disbanded group that Victor Calderone mixed but this one is pretty fabulous as well! If you're a child of the 80's, then you know this song via Joan Jett, either way it's ALOT of fun and Hex (with a lil help from Dezrok) made a great anthem out of it!**

Beki - Wake Up (Guido Osorio Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Rebecca 'Beki' Onslow was part of a girl group with the Britney/BSB/NSYNC craze started called Solid Harmonie. While over seas the group garnered much success their first and only single here "I'll Be There For You" only did fairly well. After the group split Beki teamed up with DJ Guido Osorio and wrote this song and while this only did fairly well and we never heard from Beki again, this mix and the Johnny Vicious mix were pretty fly!**

Beki - Wake Up (Johnny Vicious Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**See above! lol**

Duke - So In Love With You (Full Intention Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**In 1997 when this song came out, I was just starting to get REALLY into dance music. At the time, I was knee deep in musical theatre and my older sister was well into her party days. There were 3 songs I constantly heard coming from her room: Joey Negro - I Wanna Give You Devotion, LA Style - James Brown Is Dead and this song. I've loved it ever since!! This is CLASSIC!!!**

French Affair - My Heart Goes Boom (Plasmic Honey Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I don't actually like this song but at the time I had it because everyone else did. I dunno, it's a novelty song and I guess it had it's time and Plasmic Honey did the best they could with it. It was a huge hit in NYC for awhile so Im sure you all know it as well...**

Miley Cyrus - See You Again (JM's Aaron Paetsch Radio Edit)
**I hate to admit it, but I love this. The original song, not so much. Aaron did a KILLER mix here and even though there's a certain cheese element to it I think he found the perfect balance between the two and made it a little darker and definitely an anthem!**

Nobody's Angel - If You Wanna Dance (Thunderpuss Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I don't care what anyone says, if you gave Thunderpuss an audio file of someone belching, they'd find a way to make a build-up out of it. This is proof. Cheesy 90's pop gone club. Pretty damn good if you ask me!!**

Robyn - Handle Me (Soul Seekerz Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**The Soul Seekerz are quickly becoming my new favorite remixing team. Listen to this mix and you'll understand why. Get the dub for some awesome afterhours beats.**

SK8 - My Imagination (Ray Roc Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**She also joined the ranks of cheese pop in 1999 but has since made the move from cheese pop to dancefloor diva. This was her first offering which got remixed by Todd Terry and Ray Roc. This is the one I always favored.**

SK8 - Tina (Chris Cox Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**Long after SK8 left the world of pop and made the switch she's had a few releases that seem to go overlooked. This is her most recent and I actually enjoy it. It's a little bit more of an electro sound we get from Chris Cox here but it works. This song, if you listen to the lyrics are clearly about a night partying with Crystal Meth. The lyrics "Connie wasn't home. Kitty never shows. I'm sick of Mary Jane so instead I've gotta play with Tina. My girlfriend Tina." Grab your bumpers boys, this one's going right up the nose lol**

Suzanne Palmer - Fascinated (JM's Eric Kupper Radio Edit)
**This is one of those updates that makes the original seem so far away. Suzanne did a KILLER job with this song and even though we got some good mixes from Offer Nissim, DJ Paulo and Escape/Gomi, the original wins out here. Eric Kupper's production moves along very smoothly and lets Suzanne's voice do all the work here. And work it DOES!! My favorite part is at 3:40. Check it out. Suzanne rules!!!!**
