Skyy "Show Me The Way" and Bilbo "Sex Machine" extended edits heat the floor.

Skyy has a new album on Salsoul called "Skyylight", and "Show Me The Way" written by co-producer Randy Muller has got to be one of the finest cuts.  Here it is with an extended intro to help you get into it a little smoother, and there's even a loop up front of some crazy sounds from Blank Tapes Studios in New York so nicely engineered by John Bradley and so smoothly mixed by John, Randy and co-producer Solomon Roberts, Jr. Check out the smooth vocals of Bonne, Dolores and Denise, too.

That fabulous James Brown classic called "Sex Machine" is next, the first production of Belgium's hot new Jump & Shout Records, headed by Philippe Borms.  Phil, Ronny and Cooky produced Bilbo's new version of "Sex Machine", and it was mixed by Cooky.  We gave it a new intro, and there's also some extra razz a ma tazz at the end including an off-beat "Wait a minute…" which really sounds great when you're out there flying around on the dance floor.  No letters please on this one, guys, but it pays to be offbeat now and then.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 12:47, beginning at 117 BPM (beats per minute) and ending at 116 BPM.

The Risqué girls are back in town with "Burn It Up, Mr. D.J." mixed by Valapucci.

Here are those four beautiful ladies from Amsterdam with the sweetest sounds this side of heaven singing "Burn It Up, Mr. D.J."  Risqué has dedicated this hot new song to all the DJs the world over, so burn it up, Mr. D.J., burn it up… keep the fire burin' !!!

John Tilly produced, and Ake Danielson co-produced.  This is Valapucci's "Club Mix" coming on the Importe/12 Maxi 33 12", which also includes a radio version as well as a spacey "dub" version.  Val has worked on Ethel Merman, Ferrara's "Love Attack", and Maxine Dee's "I Need A Man (That's What I'm Living For)", and this new one by Risque has got to be one of Val's best efforts to date.

The keyboard and sequencer work is precise and full, and the electronic chips seem to be talking for most of the record.  Once you relax, you can actually hear what the girls are singing… so the song brings added relaxation and enjoyment on each subsequent play.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 7:00 at 124 BPM.  A couple of cueing bands mark entry points.

Donna Summer's "She Works Hard For The Money" now works harder for you.  Electric Guitars with "Language Problems."

Donna Summer's "She Works Hard For The Money" is one of today's hottest records, and her new Mercury/Polygram album is really starting to move.  Donna co-wrote the song with producer Michael Omartian, and John Guess engineered.  While there's a bit of Patrick Cowley in the keys, Donna's vocals continue to be the star, and with the extra beats and loops of this extended Disconet version, they'll be dancing harder than ever to this song.  So burn em up, guys.

The Electric Guitars are next with an extended edit of "Language Problems", originally released by Stiff in the UK in 1982.  Martin "Human League" Rushent produced this one, which was written by the group.  It is precise and piercing, with a beautiful English accent to keep it all in balance.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 12:15, from 136 BPM to 132 BPM.

Carol Hahn's "Into The Night" gets the Disconet touch to take you well into the morning.

Here is the followup to "Do Your Best" from Carol Hahn's "Portraits" album for Nickel Records.  There are four versions of "Into The Night" on the new 12", and we've taken elements of all of them to create this 9 minute blockbuster for you.

That backwards talking is spacey, and just wait until that asshole senator from California who wants to put a warning on backwards heavy metal records hears what Carol is moaning into the microphone.  No wonder they don't need bookmarks in Washington, they just bend over their pages!

Jack Stang produced, and many of the songs (written by Carol and Jeff Sullivan) have received critical acclaim.  Even Stephanie Shepherd said, in Dance Music Report, that Carol Hahn had "Brains and talent - a rare combination."  And Stephanie should know.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 8:50 at a smooth 124 BPM.

Randy Dethman wins the LCD chronograph. Randy plays at The Cove in Atlanta, and the pressing serial number of Volume 5, Program 13 matched the lucky winning number for that program.  Randy's favorite selections were Raul's wonder remix of American Fade's "I'm Alive", David Bowie's "Let's Dance" extended Disconet version, the "At Midnight" medley by Danae Jacovidis, and Valapucci's "I Need A Man (That's What I'm Living For)" Maxine Dee mix.

To win the watch that does practically anything, simply return your feedback card included with this program package.  Be sure to write your name, club and home address clearly, and if you're cute, attach a photo… and be sure to list the serial number shown on the upper right hand corner of your Side A/Side B record jacket.  Good luck!
