A few more...

Amy Winehouse - Tears Dry On Their Own (JM's Alix Alvarez Sole Radio Edit)
**I really hope that Amy can get her shit together and give us some more great music!!! It's such a shame because she's so talented! I haven't really been a fan of many of her mixes because her music is usually the kind I like in it's original form only. Even this one doesn't necessarily blow me away but it's a cute summer mix with a funky happy twist and I think it works.**

Blondie - Maria (JM's Soul Solution Radio Mix)
** Back in 1999 this was Blondie's big comeback song from their CD "No Exit" and I loved everything about it! The song went to #1 in the UK while it stalled at a disappointing #82 in the US pop charts, however, the remixes of it did make it to #9. True, Blondie looked alot older and Debbie Harry's face seemed like it only had one facial expression left, but that's ok because Soul Solution put together a great mix here guaranteed to keep your face (and your feet) happy! **

Byron Stingily - U Turn Me (Michael T Diamond Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**I just found this one deep in the books and I just had to include it. This is a great vocal but this is also one of those rare occasions when I like the dub more than the vocal. The Michael T Diamond Dub of this took over NYC dance clubs so much more than the vocal mix and even though it was much more popular, an edit of it would just be foolish lol. So instead I offer the vocal.**

S Club 7 Juniors - One Step Closer (Almighty Radio Edit) **Official Edit**
**This is straight up euro pop dance cheese!! Back in the day, British band S Club 7 was all over the charts and they spawned another group called S Club 7 Juniors which then turned into S Club 8, and while the members are off persuing solo stuff as of today, this was a remix of their first big song in the UK (which reached #2) in 2002. Almighty of course took it and amped it up for the dancefloors!**

Sylver Logan Sharp - After All This Time (JM's Jonathan Peters Barebones Radio Mix)
**We all know this song and I know I've posted it before, but here, Jonathan Peters offers something really interesting and he calls it his Barebones Mix. This mix was never released and it's basically beat, bass and vocal with maybe one synth line thrown in. It's uber-minimal and it has a very dark feel to it. Sylver's voice, of course, still sounds incredible and you can really hear her vocal prowess here. A must have!**

Synergy 4 - Come To Me (JM's Mada & Moody Radio Edit)
**I don't know alot about this song except that I heard it on a mix CD in 1998 and it took me forever to find it! I stumbled across a promo vinyl for it in a bargain bin (and after almost passing out) ripped it immediately! The vocal here is insane as is the production. Alot of dance music at this time was very dark sounding, almost gothic and the productions of all the heavy hitters at the time like Plasmic Honey, Mada & Moody, Sal Dano, Robbie Tronco all reflected that. Definitely give this a listen, they just don't make build-ups like this anymore.**

Ultra Nate vs M-Dolla - Free To Preach (JM's Whitelabel Radio Edit)
**Alright, we all know who M-Dolla is right? It's the rediculous nickname this artist gets called on her new CD that has to do with Candy... If not, just click the link and you'll see. But she has really no contribution to this mix at all. Whoever did it used the vocals from Ultra Nate's "Free" and the violins from M-Dolla's "Papa Don't Preach" and made a great mash-up!!**

X-Press feat Rob Harvey - Kill 100 (JM's DJ Paulo & Todd Dutkevitch Extended Radio Mix)
**This mix is brilliant from start to stop!! The haunting vocals from Rob Harvey combined with Paulo & Todd's incredible tribal mix is to die for!! This one will NOT dissappoint for sure!!**
