Very good dance compilation. As Italo dance floor remains deep into HOUSE and UNDERGROUND this also has been clearly present in this one. Several Italian HOUSE tracks on this CD already has gained worldwide attention. CAROL BAILEY with Under My Skin is the best example. In audio sampler I have featured BLACKWOOD and CHARLIE's DONE tracks. Both are good HOUSE dance tracks. Little bit late but finally One And One by ROBERT MILES is being featured in different European compilations, so it is also found the home in this one. Speaking of DREAM, the more PROGRESSIVE flavor of this music style has been also featured in this compilation. Tracks by SASH!, R.A.F. by PICOTTO and MARIO PIU' serves as good examples. I didn't feature in the sampler ROLAND BRANT track, but this particular artists have been releasing good TECHNO tracks for a while. Hyperspace is no different. This PROGRESSIVE track follows the B.B.E. style, but instrumentation in here gets it close to upenergy DREAM style. How about euro-energy songs in this CD? Not really! If any comes close to this gender it is LIVIN' JOY with Follow The Rules and already several months old Number One by ALEXIA. I assume most of you who are following eurodance, know both tracks already. Congratulations go to MAURO MICLINI for making remixes of all songs featured here. This NON-STOP compilation is PARTY killer, mostly because it can make everybody happy. Apparently all styles are present here, so practically everybody is going to find something fro him/herself. Definately compilation to get.
