Gloria Estefan - Hotel Nacional (Remixes)

This is the latest club single off of her Miss Little Havana concept album. The uptempo number is sort of a throwback with the Milk & Sugar vs. Vaya Con Dios "Hey Nah Nah Nah" samples. It is a sassy, fun song. The lyrics are very campy and novelty-ish, but they're enjoyable.

Alex M.O.R.P.H. feat Sylvia Tosun - An Angel's Love

Trancemaster Alex M.O.R.P.H. teams up with vocalist Sylvia Tosun for this big room Trance epic. The production is a absolutely stunning, calling to mind the same sort of higher tempo, uplifting Trance that was coming out at the start of the 2000s. Sylvia's ethereal vocals are exquisite, floating beautifully over the production. The additional remix by Alex with Chriss Ortega unfortunately loses the beauty and drama of the main versions, sounding like one big Electro mess. The breaks in between capture what the main versions had, but at the lower tempo, it doesn't work well.

Tony Moran feat Jennifer Holliday - Magic

This is the latest single culled from Tony Moran's Mix Magic Music compilation. Legendary singer Jennifer Holliday delivers a fiery vocal performance. Her voice is in excellent form. The main version produced by Tony Moran, Warren Rigg, and Dave Saronson is every bit the big room anthem one would expect from them.

Guinevere - Crazy Crazy

She is a new Dance/Pop singer-songwriter hoping to make a name for herself with this Cirkut produced song. Her voice and visual image call to mind Gwen Stefani, Ke$ha, and Lady Gaga. The memorable hook and chorus is just so cute.

There are are remixes for this by Dave Aude, DJ Escape & Tony Coluccio, and DJ Kue.

Aiden Leslie - Trying To Leave Now

This is the latest single from the New York-based singer. Aiden's vocal style calls to mind Boy George, Andy Bell, and a little of The Human League. The song is really catchy. The original is an Electro Dance/Pop with a hint of Rock song.

There are many remixes of this by Orly Productions, Nick Harvey & Scott Aviance, Joe Mancuso, Joe C & David Petrilla, Jerome Farley & Floor One, and The Werkin' Brothers.

Wayne G feat Melissa Totten - Beautiful Stranger

This is indeed a remake of the Madonna song from 1999. This remake began life as a private mix featuring the original vocals, however, professional Madonna impersonator Melissa Totten has recorded new vocals for it. She tries to remain faithful to Madonna's vocal performance, managing to capture some of the subtle nuances and affects of Madonna's voice. But nothing compares to the real thing. The big room production on Wayne G and Andy Allder's main mixes contains some replayed elements from the Victor Calderone club mix of the Madonna one. Joe Gauthreaux, Casey Alva, and James Torres provide additional remixes. Joe's mix is far less dramatic than his usual. Casey Alva's mixes are really synthy. And James Torres's are more dubby. Overall, the main mix is the best of the bunch. Please do check out the Victor Calderone mixes of the original if you haven't already.

The digital release will happen on November 8.

Listen to clips of the mixes:
