Danny G Italy - Never Stop EP

This is the inaugural release from the Gonna Be Records label. It's an EP containing some progressive and big room oriented tracks. The title song starts things off with a haunting male vocal drop in the middle. It's atmospheric and driving. "Oblivion" is next with a 90s piano hook throughout it. "Running Out Of Time" is a dark peak hour track, also with a nice vocal drop in the middle. The EP closes with an instrumental version of the title track. Overall, this is a solid collection of tracks.

Chic feat. Nile Rodgers - I'll Be There

Chic was a much celebrated Disco/R&B group that had a string of radio and club hits. Their sound has influenced countless Dance and R&B songs. Nile Rodgers made a comeback of sorts working with Daft Punk and Pharell Williams on "Get Lucky" and with Adam Lambert on "Lay Me Down" and "Shady." This is the lead single from Chic's first album in over 2 decades. The gorgeous single picks up exactly where Chic left off back in the day. It could have easily been on one of their earlier albums, but it also could have been made and released now. It has a timeless quality to it. The new record is expected to feature some previously unreleased, unfinished material that has recently been completed.

Calvin Harris feat Ellie Goulding - Outside (Barry Harris Remix)

Although it was released in October, the song has only recently begun to smash. The original does not deviate much from Calvin's usual, however, it is a nice slice of Dance/Pop. There have been dozens of remixes, however, the best remix by Barry Harris only surfaced a couple of days back. Barry has done his mix in an early 90s Handbag House style with lots of happy piano elements. Ellie's vocals float beautifully over the lush production.

Jason DeRulo - Want To Want Me

This is the lead single from the red hot popstar who had a massive year last year with a string of radio friendly hits. He hops on the throwback bandwagon, going for an 80s synthpop sound. He sings in falsetto for the majority of the song, giving it an even more retro feel. The song is super catchy and has a familiar feel to it. It is a surefire smash waiting to happen.

Mama Tits - Bad Girls

This is the new single from drag performer Mama Tits. The hooky song is oodles of fun with its playful attitude and divalicious backing vocals. The main vocals recall the late great Divine. There are several remixes by Groove Addix, SLM, and Wayne Numan. The Groove Addix mix is in a Deep House style and is uplifting. SLM's mix is funkier and more suited for mainstream play. Wayne Numan brings it on his meatier peak hour mix. All 3 mixes are hot.
