Oh, no!  It's Valapucci with an extended edit of Devo's "That's Good."  And The Rockets takeoff with "Atomic."

Valapucci came over from Milan to turn Devo's 3:23 album cut of "That's Good" into a real dance masterpiece for you.  Their Warner Brothers "Oh, No! It's Devo" LP is causing excitement, particularly from "That's Good."  Roy Thomas Baker produced.  The band's name, Devo, is a contraction of "de-evolution", which the boys from Akron, Ohio witnessed as they grew up in the modern world, eventually stepping into size 8C shoes.

Devo works hard building a base with a heavy tour schedule, lots of in-store promotion, and some excellent videos (you've probably already checked out "Peek-A-Boo" on MTV, one of their most requested videos in a long time.)  Fortunately, they know how to make records which sound like hits and bring a good apple pie/all-American focus to today's computer-chipped beat box drive.  Their vocals create instant empathy with the audience, and Valapucci found these portions of "That's Good" to be the high points.

The Rockets are next with a special extended version of "Atomic", the title cut of their new Rockland/CGD LP.  Claude Lemoine produced at Rockland Studios in Saint Soupplet, and Pino Vicari did the original mix at Idea Recording in Milan.  The Rockets have sold millions of records throughout the European continent, and are a big draw in person.  Their robotic costumes convey the spirit and precision of their music.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 11:33 at 153 BPM.

C.O.D. covers the Gil-Scott Heron classic, "In The Bottle."  Special extended mix is a bottle beater.

C.O.D. is right off the streets of New York, and their new 12" on Emergency should make the phones ring off the hooks at Alcoholics Anonymous.  It's a great street/rap cover of Gil Scott-Heron's classic, "In The Bottle."  Raul A. Rodriguez produced and mixed, and Man Parrish (remember him?) was associate producer.  We've taken a secret mix of the instrumental and vocal tracks to combine them into another special Disconet power side for you.

C.O.D.'s beat box really pumps with "In The Bottle", with a bass line designed to whip your dance floor into shape.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 7:36 at 118 BPM.

Special extended mix of The Jonzun Crew's "We Are The Jonzun Crew."

The Jonzun Crew have a new LP coming on Tommy Boy with their 12" hits "Pac Jam", "Space Is The Place" and some new songs including "We Are The Jonzun Crew."  We've done a special 10:28 mix of the six minute LP cut which incorporates some of the instrumental TV track.

Michael "Spaceman" Jonzun, Maurice Starr and Donald Jonzun make the tracks happen.  There's a nice balance of real percussion along with some of the best sounding beat box sound in the business today.

The tempo is welcome for energy-hungry dance floors, too.  At 129 BPM, it keeps moving.

The tracks were recorded and mixed at Unique in New York City, and Tom Silverman was executive producer.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 10:28 at 129 BPM.

Nikki Lauren sings "Again And Again" with a side-full of dance energy.

Mark Berry gave you "Have I The Right" by Lee Prentiss last summer, and his production wizardry is back again in high gear with Nikki Lauren's "Again And Again", produced for MSB Productions and released on Wave.

John "Jellybean" Benitez mixed a vocal and instrumental side for the commercial 12" release, which have been combined here for an extra-long side of dance energy.

Nikki Lauren was born in Long Island, and says that "Ever since I was first able to talk, I wanted to be a singer."  She was lead singer for Zig Zag, which packed local clubs in the tri-state area and lead to her discovery by Mark.  She's also acted, regionally and Off-Broadway, and has studied at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 9:28 at 135 BPM.

Larry Cory wins the LCD chronograph.  Larry plays at Park Place in San Diego, and his pressing serial number on Volume 5, Program 7 (#866) matched the lucky winning number for that program.  Larry's favorite cuts were Frank Schmidt's extended remix of Donna Summer's "Highway Runner", Xclusiv's "Fools Are Friendly", and that classic rerun of the 1980 Disconet Top Tune Medley.

To win the watch, be sure to return your feedback card and list the pressing serial number shown on the upper right hand corner of your Side A/Side B jacket.  Good luck!
