AnnaGrace - You Make Me Feel

This is not a cover of the Disco classic by Sylvester. This is however, a new track that could be a classic in the near future. AnnaGrace is actually singer Annemie Coenen who was the vocalist of Ian Van Dahl. It's a collaboration with fellow Belgian Peter Luts. "You Make Me Feel" is a simple Dance/Pop track with killer vocals and excellent production. The main version is very versatile. It's club and radio ready. Additional mixes by Voodoo & Serrano, Francesco Diaz & Thomas Gold and John Luniz make this song even more club friendly. The music video is quite good too. This one could be huge on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ultra Naté - Automatic 2008

Her fierce cover of the Pointer Sisters 80's classic topped the club charts last year. It got a release overseas with some additional mixes which were unavailable until recently. Some new mixes by Tikaro, J. Louis & Ferran (all one remixing team for this one), Riff & Rays and Alex Gaudino, Discode and eSQUIRE make up this release. This is one of several new mixes of songs from Ultra's forthcoming Alchemy: GST Reloaded collection (coming out in August). It consists of remixes of songs from Grime Silk Thunder. These new mixes breathe additional life into an already strong song. It's worth mentioning that this song's steamy music video was directed by famed photographer/director Karl Giant. He is reportedly directing the video for Ultra's next single "Twisted 2008" which is a revisit of a song from Stranger Than Fiction.

Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl

After the internet success of "Ur So Gay", she is back with her first proper single from new album One Of The Boys. "I Kissed A Girl" is about exactly what the title alludes to. This isn't the first time a song has dealt with this theme (see Jill Sobule's song of the same name or "Some Girls Dance With Women" by JC Chasez), but this one deals with it in a fresh way. Written by Dr. Luke how has penned hits for Kelly Clarkson and P!nk, this one is a super catchy Pop/Rock piece of bubblegum. It has gained considerable radio airplay as are its digital sales. This one may prove to be a Summer hit for Ms. Perry. Hopefully this will be the first of many successes for her.

Ida Corr vs. Fedde Le Grand - Let Me Think About It

Although this one has been garnering heavy airplay on the Dance stations across the U.S. for the better part of the last year, this was just given a release here a few weeks back via Ministry Of Sound. It was previously released in the later part of last year all over Europe and in some other parts of the world. The Danish singer's sassy vocals take center stage in this slice of Electro-pop. With those hypnotic instrumental loops and killer bassline, this one is sure to be a floorfiller. Some Pop stations are beginning to test the waters with this one. With an even greater number of Dance-oriented tracks making even a minor splash in the U.S., this one may have a shot at doing better than just average.

Madonna - Give It 2 Me

This is the followup single to the worldwide hit "4 Minutes." There had been some speculation as to whether this would be the single or some other song would be chosen. The lyrics are very fun and are just right for the Summer. Some are either loving or hating the "get stupid, get stupid" break. There are plans for a radio edit that removes that portion or shortens it. The video was released a few weeks back. While it pales in comparison to the over-the-top "4 Minutes", this one is simple and kinda fun.

An extensive remix package is planned. So far, there's the Paul Oakenfold mix. It was available on some of the digital download editions of the album. This mix sounds like it would be perfectly at home with album cuts on Madonna's last album. It's pure electro heaven. Additional mixes by Jody Den Broeder, Eddie Amador, Fedde Le Grand and a couple of more will be released in the next few weeks.

Grade: B+ (Album version)
Grade: A- (Paul Oakenfold mix)
