Artist: DADDY DJ
Title: LET YOUR BODY TALK
France rarely scores big in
eurodance... Here's a full-length album from the act that topped the charts
worldwide with their debut hit "Daddy DJ". 13 track are rather diverse
and few are as strong as the debut single; overall, this album is somewhat
similar to Eiffel 65 style; two trance remixes at the end are nice.
Title: BILLY JIVE (WITH WILLY'S WIFE)
E-Rotic is back again with a
new single. "Billy Jive (With Willy's Wife)" is a first single from a
new album "Sex Generation" that will follow shortly in Europe. This time the act
features a new vocalist. E-Rotic is back to their classic style, no experiments
here, just 100% euro-NRG, full male raps, explosive female vocals and screams.
Title: BILLY JIVE (WITH WILLY'S WIFE)
Tracks of this super euroNRG
album are as follows: 01. Billy Jive (With
Willy's Wife) - 3:39, 02. Mi Amante - 4:23, 03. King Kong - 4:01, 04.
Untouchable Feeling - 3:33, 05. Crying Like A Child - 4:05, 06. Rock Me Baby -
3:47, 07. It's Just A Little Flirt - 3:35, 08. The Story Is Over - 4:00, 09. Bad
Boy - 3:41, 10. Sex Machine - 3:19, 11. Molly Dolly (Loves A Lolly) - 4:06, 12.
Skin To Skin - 3:17, 13. Billy Jive (With Willy's Wife) (Extended Version) -
6:53, 14. Mi Amante (Extended Version) - 7:49, 15. King Kong (Extended Version)
Artist: KOSMONOVA vs C-STARR
Title: THE DAYDREAM
Kosmonova's new single is on its way to
the top of the dance charts all around Europe - an absolute trance smash hit
with a very catchy whistling chorus. The single comes in two different versions
- Kosmonova's and C-Starr's. C-Starr's version is a big-room trance with
fantastic synthlines and more vocals, Kosmonova's version is a much harder
trance track with rough synthlines and deep bass.
Artist: CAPTAIN JACK
Title: SAY CAPTAIN SAY WHAT
At about 120 bpm, it's a very boring euroraggae track, some rhymes from the
Captain, some female singing, but nothing new here.
Artist: CHARLY LOWNOISE & MENTAL THEO pres. STARSPLASH
Title: WONDERFUL DAYS
Let the revival of happy hardcore begin!!! Charly
Lownoise & Mental Theo stage a spectacular comeback with the 2001 version
of their 1995 hit. This is a modern trance buster, with super heavy base, deep
synths, and rough cuts. The remixes are even deeper into trance: Ratty Remix is
fast-paced synth-rich trance, and Potatoheadz Remix has a more commercial
big-room trance to it
Artist: DJ QUICKSILVER meets SHAGGY
Interesting new single from DJ Quicksilver, an attempt
to make a trance track out of Shaggy's "Boombastic", it's
pretty cool, with Brooklyn-Bounce-style broken rhythm in the middle, a lot of
breaks, and absolutely awesome synth trance parts. However, it feel a bit glued
Title: SAY I'M THE ONE
Another almost classic euro release from Danish
Reset, it's nice and everything but really boring and has nothing special,
female vocals are nice but again boring, synths are weak, no male rapper.
Title: WHEN THE NIGHT IS FALLING (VAMPIRE'S SONG)
An absolutely stunning track!!! Very beautiful
flying trance, very rich synth lines, great tempo, awesome female vocals, nice
and sadly mysterious! both the Original Mix and 2001 Canarias Mix are
Title: SAY THAT YOU'RE HERE
A nice soft vocal trance release, a very typical
Fragma style. Nice catchy lyrics, nice very gentle synth drops, very melodic,
excellent chorus orchestration.
Artist: PULSEDRIVER vs GEORGE KRANZ
Title: DIN DA DA
Un uplifting fast-paced vocal trance release with a
typical Pulsedriver baseline. The lyrics don't fit very well with the otherwise
excellent synth lines. One of the best remixes is by Potatoheads - a big-room
trance with few lyrics.
Artist: E NOMINE
E Nomine is back with their very characteristic
style: German language lyrics and cathedral chants. This is one of their
strongest singles, with a lot of chorus, great synths and baseline. Remixes by
Warp Brothers and Beam vs. Cyrus.
Title: KING SIZE
Similar to the previous Caater's tracks "Dance With Me" and "Feel
My Body" this is a heavily Darude-influenced track, or more like Darude
style taken to mind-blowing extreme. This single has a more clubby feeling to it
that the previously trance oriented tracks; it also lacks vocals.
Artist: JOY KIKIKONTI
This track has taken charts by storm. One thing for sure it is very
original and unusual; a mostly house track with interesting yet somewhat
annoying sound of never-ending scratching synthline. Check out Mauro Picotto
"Back to the bass, to
the beat, to the drum... Supa-dupa-fly!". 666 is back again with a monster,
this one is the best one yet: it's got it all, rhymes, synths, tempo, bass,
energy - all in a typical 666 style."
A super club track with awesome rap rhymes,
Darude-style rifts, yet much rougher, maxxxximum energy: "K-System, with
the supadupasound! DJ - the man in the house! Pump up the speakers for all you
partyseekers!" Also, check out Caater Remix with a more trance feel to it
and with some breakbeat in the middle.
Artist: BOMFUNK MC'S
Title: SUPER ELECTRIC
The electrofunk kings are back with
another electro-techno anthem - classic break-beat electrosound with full-length
rap rhymes, deep echo bass and of course a heavy dose of robotized voices.
Following the success of the first single "Strings of
Infinity", comes the second masterpiece "L'Esperanza". Produced
by no one else but Charly Lownoise himself, this is a very beautiful trance
track with female Spanish vocals and fantastic synths. While the original
version is good, DJ's@ Work Remix is just out of this world flying trance.
Title: MANIAC 2001 REMIX
A cool remix of a famous
disco 70's track, now powered with full energy of commercial trance. The Single
Mix edit is mainstream trance with heavy and rich synthlines, a lot of vocals,
and fast-paced steady beat. The Club Mix is a different story however, featuring
Brooklyn Bounce/Balloon- styled heavy base and march breaks in the middle,

Title: SEX & DRUGS & HOUSE
Another dark tune from D-Devils, probably the
strongest release from their recent album, well-orchestrated, although too much
deep voice "devil" talk is a bit annoying.
Artist: DJ BOBO
Title: COLORS OF LIFE
BoBo keeps releasing trash. Every since he decided to sing instead of rapping,
the songs are absolutely have nothing to do with eurodance or trance. The new
track is not an exception, while it has some beat, it is very ordinary and
Title: I'M IN HEAVEN (WHEN YOU KISS ME)
brand new single from ATC, and quite good. It is less of a bubblegum pop, has a
very strong beat throughout, nice tempo, a vocal trance synth lines, even some
rough cuts and breaks. Excellent!
Artist: SYSTEM F
Title: DANCE VALLEY THEME 2001
Synth-rich, with cool breaks and uplifts,
this is an interesting release from System F. It has a bit of an underground
feel to it, a deep AM house flavor, with no lyrics and breakbeat.
Title: TRIBAL ISLAND
A very nice new single from the act that brought you "Australia" and
"Indian Spirits". This is a typical vocal trance tracks, with female
whispers, flying synths, very beautiful melodic arrangement.
Artist: RIMINI PROJECT

version, and experimental tracks: 1.Movin' Around (Bertelson Mix), 2.Bum Digi

Megamix, 12.Remix Tools 1, 13.Remix Tools 2, 14.Remix Tools 3
Title: OUT OF CONTROL (BACK FOR MORE)
This is the third single from Darude's debut album, it has been significantly
revamped and a full-time female vocalist was added to this version. The track
lacks typical Darude style, and is otherwise very ordinary.
Artist: R.E.D. S.E.C.T.O.R.
Title: INVASION OVER BERLIN 2001
R.E.D. S.E.C.T.O.R. decided to
re-release their two-year-old track in a 2001 update. While the tempo definitely
picked up, the track has somewhat monotonous feel now, and E-Nomine-style lyrics
in German doesn't make it livelier.
A brand new single
from Hypertraxx: the same very dark march-like style, and a male voice
monotonously reciting lyrics. Awesome synthwork, this is a true anthem of dark
Artist: IBIZA UNITED VS K.K. PROJECT
Title: BABY GOT BACK
Another single from DJ K.K.'s side project,
Ibiza United (the previous singles were "DJ Cut", and "Wait A
Minute". It's a very typical club house track with high-itched repetitive
rhymes that were popularized by DJ Supreme and KLubbheads. Nothing special
a full-length album from Pulsedriver, it includes all his hits as well as
several new tracks: 1.P.U.L.S.E. (Intro), 2.Kiss That Sound, 3.Cambodia, 4.Your
Spirit Is Shining, 5.Barracuda, 6.Take U High, 7.Set U Free, 8.I Dominate U,
9.Something For Your Mind, 10.Eternity, 11.Pictures, 12.Fly, 13.I'm Rushin',
Artist: THREE DRIVES
Title: SUNSET OVER IBIZA
Nice melodic trance with no vocals, somewhat monotonous.

Prezioso went back to his original style of
full-on male vocals and nice Italo-trance in this new single.
Title: JUST ONE MORE TIME
The long-awaited full-length from this
Swedish unfortunately did not meet the
expectations, while a few tracks are truly outstanding, nothing matches the

another fantastic release!
Title: DIE FOR YOU
A debut album from this Swedish-Greek
duo featuring some classic europop tracks as well as some more ethnic tracks in Greek
riding their success at the Euro Vision festival : 1. (I
Would) Die For You - 2:59, 02.
Me - 4:25, 03.
Athena - 3:52, 04. Ligo

Title: REBEL MC
Following the success of the debut single
"Dancefloorkiller", comes the second installment. This is a super
awesome track, with very high tempo, full-on synths, mindblowing repetitive
raps, deep beat. Produced by the same guys who brought us 666.
Artist: FLYING STEPS
Title: WE GONNA ROCK IT
Let the street burn break-dance-style -
another smashing electro techno pop release from Flying Steps.
Artist: FUTURE BREEZE
Title: TEMPLE OF DREAMS
Next single from
Future Breeze, a very nice vocal trance, big-room synthlines and fantastic beat.
Very melodic and catchy, somewhat uplifting, although the vocals don't fit very
well with the beautiful melody. Nice breaks in the middle.
Artist: THE MOON
Following the success of their debut single
"Blow The Speakers" that featured a very unusual synthetic horn sound,
comes the second single "The Moon". The same sound is here, although
there are now some annoying Japanese words by a female.
Artist: TOM WILSON
Title: TECHNO CAT 2001
Another remake of this classic techno
track. This new release offers nothing interesting or special, it is somewhat
upgraded with new beats and synthlines, but the tempo is still the same, and
there's too many elements at play, the song feels overdone.
Title: MISSION HORIZON
Review: Finally, the long-awaited new album from RMB is out, and similar to the previous album, it is disappointing. Aside from the previous singles and their remixes, as well as the current single "Wonders Of Life", other tracks are very mediocre. Tracklisting: CD1 : 1.The Mission, 2.Horizon (Album Cut), 3.Reflections, 4.Zeitwand, 5.Midnight, 6.Tribal, 7.Open Eyes, 8.Wonders Of Life, 9.The Trick, 10.Controlled Force, 11.Deep Down Below (Maxi Cut), 12.Eternal Faith, 13.The Void, 14.Horizon (Spliffed Mix), CD 2: 1.Horizon (Original Version), 2.Destructor, 3.Mitternacht (134 Mix), 4.Deep Down Below (Video) 5.Horizon (Video)
Artist: MARC ET CLAUDE
A nice trance track, beautiful and romantic female vocals, soft breakbeat
breaks, awesome flying synths. Very beautiful, check it out!
Artist: NU ROMANTIX FEAT. DJ BORA
Title: MAD WORLD
Excellent vocal trance tune with
pounding rhythmic bass, male vocals, fast tempo, and great synths, and a little
bit of Gigi D'Agostino influence. Tracklisting as follows:1. Pulsedriver Radio Edit, 2. Radio Edit, 3.
Sounddiver Remix, 4. Pulsedriver Remix, 5. Extended Version, 6. Plastic Age
Remix, 7. Martin Eyerer Remix
Artist: PAUL VAN DYK
Paul van Dyk released a new version of the track from his last album, it's
typical Paul's style, not too energetic, but somehow nice.
