Just in time for pool party season, pride festivities and the 4th of July holiday this weekend, check out The Monkey T. It's filled with European dance fun I hope you enjoy (especially Tom, Paddy and the other boys back in Chicago).
1) Double click the Monkey T logo to listen on your computer.
2) To save to your computer (PC users), RIGHT CLICK TO SAVE on the Monkey T logo (allow approximately 20 minutes to download depending on your connection speed). Once saved, launch the MP3. Your music program should open the MP3 automatically.
3) To save to your computer (MAC users), CONTROL+CLICK on the Monkey T logo (again, allow approximately 20 minutes to download depending on your connection speed). Mac will ask to open in iTunes or save file. If you open in iTunes, it's a continuous stream - no CD burning allowed and it's automatic (no waiting!). To burn a CD, you must download and save to iTunes.
4) If all else fails, send me an email and I'll forward the MP3 to you directly.
1) Are You Watching Me (Watching You) - Syke & Sugarstarr: I first heard this track on the Scumfrog's free mix. I searched high and low for the name and artist. It was worth the wait. The song is a few months old but has been remastered for pure summer pleasure.
2) I Need You (Deep Josh Mix) - Soul Central: It keeps the energy going with very few vocals.
3) Crazy (MHC Stateside Mix) - Andy Bell: It's the only track I selected from the States and my Promo Only record base. But with few dance records featuring male vocalists available (and good), I liked adding it into the mix.
4) Somebody's Watching Me (Hi-Tack Mix) - Rockell: Samples Michael Jackson's vocals from the Rockell hit of the 80s. Seems to be the trend - take some vocals from Michael or the 80st and remix. Fun none-the-less!
5) So Under Pressure (Soul Seekerz Mix) - Dannie Minogue: Kylie's little sister has been on a winning streak with dance records. She'll most likely always be in her big sister's shadow, but for now, she creates fun music for the boys (and girls) to appreciate. Lifted from her greatest hits CD (yes, she has enough to qualify).
6) Tell Me (Club Mix) - Grooveland: I heard this track on gaydarradio.com. It's a bit older than the rest, but I liked the hook.
7) Borderline (Vocal Mix) - Michael Grey: He had a big hit with Weekend, followed up with The Beat. For summer, he lightens up a bit and provides us with this pop gem.
8) Speechless (Soul Seekerz Mix) - Mish Mash: The record is huge in Europe (which means it will take 4-6 months to reach America). With so many versions available, it was hard to choose which one to include. Check out the King Unique and Seamus Haji mix also.
9) Forever (Blanco & Moto Mix) - Lake Street Project: This is one of those records that makes you smile.
10) Love Sensation 06 (Hi-Tack Burning Up the Floor Mix) - Loleatta Holloway: Talk about energy. This track was refurbished for 2006 and is full of pumping beats and screaming diva vocals.
