Three imports worth your attention: Marti Caine, Nancy Nova, The Human League.  Each now specially edited for your floor.

Marti Caine leads off a side of very interesting imports which have been specially edited by Raul for your dance floor.  Marti's "Can I Speak To The World Please?" is from her BBC album entitled "Marti Caine/Point Of View" which contains ten selections, a few of which are quite danceable.  Raul has extended the intro for easier mix-in, and once this song gets started, you will appreciate Bill Lyall and Barry Blue's arrangements.  This song has excellent potential, and you may find that its current four-minute length is all too short!

Next, Nancy Nova with "The Force."  This has been a rather strong 12" for Hansa throughout Europe, and Raul has restructured it to work better with the other songs in this set and hold attention better.  There is a subtle salsa rhythmn underneath which is emerging on several new productions, particularly from the U.K.  The Gibson-Danova production includes a very hot ending reminescent of The Skatt Brothers.

The third song in this set is The Human League's "Love Action" instrumental, from Virgin in the U.K.  Raul eliminated the somewhat bizarre drop-out edits at the beginning of the song, and smoothed over the remaining ones.  Martin Rushent and The Human League produced, and their pressing is a good value today as it contains two versions of two songs ("Love Action" and "Hard Times") providing enough energy material to make your own versions as you play.

The whole side should be very useful for you as all songs are right in the center of most music today.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 15:15, from 127 BPM to 126 BPM.

Casey Jones remixes The Chaplin Band's "Madmen's Discotheque (Part II)" and just listen to those drums.

Casey Jones appeared on Disconet Volume 3, Program 8 with his Eurodance Medley.  Casey has developed a nice following in the New York area, and regularly plays at The River Club and Les Mouches in the city and on Fire Island at The Ice Palace when it is warmer.

Casey has put together a very useful side for you.

It starts off with three minutes of very nice percussion, crisp and clean.  If you want a l-o-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-g intro, here it is.  This portion should be useful to you for years to come when you want to throw them a few minutes of nice drums.

The percussion leads into The Chaplin Band's "Madmen's Discotheque (Part Two.)"  This is the instrumental version, produced by Gerard Stellaard and engineered by Jan v. Vrijaldenhoven at the EMI Studio in The Netherlands.  The 12" single from Holland, on Bovema Negram Records (distributed by EMI Holland) has a vocal version backed with the instrumental.

Casey has extended the instrumental, and has created a longer first break followed later by a shorter break.

And in case they didn't get enough of those drums at the beginning, the Chaplin Band segues back into the percussion.  Cueing bands mark the various portions of this side.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 11:00 at 122 BPM.

Bonnie Forman with "All Night."  Sharon Brown with "I Specialize In Love."  These two new artists have a lot to sing about.

The world premieres of two exceptionally fine songs by two exceptionally talented ladies lead off this Disconet program.

Bonnie Forman is from New York, writes songs and has been appearing at various area clubs.  Her first record is "All Night", produced by Eddie O'Loughlin and Kenny Laguna.  The augmented dance production which appears here was done by Mark Berry and Denny O'Connor, and will be released by Wave Records.  The mood is smooth and strong throughout, and those drums have a real nice full feeling to them.

Sharon Brown is next, with "I Specialize In Love."  Eddie O'Loughlin also produced this song, which was arranged by Andy Schwartz, the keyboard member of Chic's first three LPs.  Eddie is no stranger to your dance floor.  He produced Carol Douglas' "My Simple Heart" as well as her earlier hits including "Doctors Orders", "Midnight Love Affair", "Night Fever" and "Burnin'" (which appeared on Disconet Volume 1, Program 6 and Program 2 of Volume 2.)  Martan-Plateau Productions will be completing a Sharon Brown LP as well as evaluating your feedback on this lead song.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 11:10, from 112 BPM (beats per minute) to 115 BPM.

Tom Karopoulos presents "Mystery Group" with "Spend The Night."

Tom Karopoulos has played extensively throughout Europe, and is currently playing in the New York area including regular spots at Alex In Wonderland.

Tom has done an excellent mix of "Spend The Night" by Mystery Group which has a nice build and flow to it.  He has used quite a bit of percussion with style and grace throughout, and capitalizes on key synthesizer hook lines for continuity.

Mystery Group hangs out in New York and Europe, and should be released in Europe before making its way over to the United States and Canada.  In the meantime, don't worry about who it is, but just enjoy the song and mix.  They're both terrific!

Two bands mark key breaks in Tom's mix.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 7:40 at 125 BPM.

Lee Eckinger wins the LCD chronograph.  Lee plays at Menjo's in Detroit.  His pressing serial number on Volume 4, Program 5 (#1332) matched the lucky winning number for that program.

Lee's favorite cuts on Program 5 were the Raul/Frank Corr remix of Denroy Morgan's "I'll Do Anything For You", Night Force's "D-a-n-c-e", and Kelly Marie's extended "Love Trial."

The songs on Program 5's "Name These Tunes" side were "Don't Take Away Your Love" by Keisa Brown, "Dancer Dance" by Pussyfoot, "You're All I Need To Get By" by J.P.Morgan and "I Can Hear Music" by California.
