Viola Wills returns with a special mix of "Stormy Weather" by Scotty Blackwell and John G. Sollas direct from Miami's superhot hurricane center.

Viola Wills' "Stormy Weather" became an instant club smash on Sunergy, produced by Viola and Aristides Jacobs (a/k/a Artie.)  With all of the thunder and rain, it seemed appropriate for the hurricane capital of Miami to come up with a special remix for Disconet so expertly done by Scotty Blackwell and John G. Sollas.

Scotty is from Ft. Worth, Texas, studied audio engineering, and moved to Miami three years ago to spin records at Faces in Coconut Grove.  Scotty currently splits his time between Backstreet in Ft. Lauderdale and production work at various studios in the Miami area.  Scotty worked with John Sollas on the remix, who is Production Manager for WCMQ in Miami.  The original 7:35 now runs almost 12 minutes, with a few cueing bands along the way.  It's a very smooth trip through some very energy-filled stormy weather.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 11:47 at 132 BPM.

Lisa with a special remix of "Jump, Shout" by Bill Motley, Craig Morey, Joshua Hamler and David Behoy.  And a hot mystery song!

Lisa's "Jump, Shout" on Moby Dick is keeping people jumping and shouting all over the place.  Bill Motley and Craig Morey have developed a special remix for Disconet, assisted by Joshua Hamler and David Behoy.  John Hedges and Barry Blum wrote and produced, with more projects planned for Lisa.  The remix features a hip twisting eighth beat slap that even Mystery Woman can dance to, and a new break.  Enjoy!

And since we havn't had a contest in a couple of months (ever since Brian Burke won a trip to Florida), we thought it would be interesting for you guys to try and guess what the next song is.  Raul found this tape in his bedroom the other day, and when he played it, he thought you might enjoy trying it out.  Let us know the name of the song and the name of the group on your feedback card.  All correct entries received by July 1 will be placed in a hat, and we'll blindfold Raul who will draw the winner.  The prize is a round-trip airline ticket to New York and registration at The New Music Seminar, July 19 and 20.  So guess right!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 11:40, from 130 BPM to 128 BPM.

Miss Kimberly gives extended mixes to Bananarama & Fun Boy Three's "Really Saying Something" and David Bowie's "Cat People (Putting Out Fire.)"

Miss Kimberly was born in Amarillo, Texas, and moved to Boise, Idaho five years ago.  She's been spinning for the past four years, ever since a DJ asked her to take over for a few mixes and didn't return for the rest of the night.  You can hear Miss Kimberly at The Daily Planet club in beautiful downtown Boise.

Her two "picks" for great music which needed a little repairing for the dance floor are included on this side.  First, it's Bananarama & Fun Boy Three with "Really Saying Something" from their British Deram 12" single.  The production fuses English rock attitude with asphalt jungle percussion.

David Bowie is next with "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" from the MCA/Backstreet original soundtrack to "Cat People."  Giorgio Moroder wrote the music and produced, and David Bowie wrote the lyrics and sings.  With shades of "Golden Years", the hit power of David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder now have looped sections to build the groove for dancing as well as some nice breaks via Miss Kimberly's golden blade.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 13:05, dropping from 134 BPM (beats per minute) to 124 BPM without spraining a muscle.

Plastic Bertrand's "Stop Ou Encore" gets a Raul Dance Mix.  Risque is back in town with "Starlight" edited by Casey Jones.

Plastic Bertrand's unusual "Stop Ou Encore" has received an exceptionally fine remix by Raul A. Rodriguez.  The tracks were produced by Lou for RKM, and mixed at Boris Midney's super sound Eras Studios engineered by Ben Wisch assisted by Marco Utano.  This is the vocal version, which will appear along with a radio edit and a spacey instrumental version on a 3-cut Sugarscoop 12" shortly.  The percussion and street groove are now more prominent, and the special effects along the way make this a very pleasant experience for the ears.

Risqué is next with a surprising follow-up to their European smash, "The Girls Are Back In Town."  These four lovely ladies are from The Netherlands, and bring their velvet voices to a more laidback groove with their new song entitled "Starlight."  Casey Jones provides an extended American edit to both songs on a forthcoming Importe/12 single, and "Starlight" comes right out of "Stop Ou Encore" when it's time to slow the floor down.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: This summer sleeze side (Bonus Side 2) runs 14:55 at 100 BPM.
