Classic Jacksons' "Can You Feel It" by Mike Lewis, Steve Algozino & Bob Logan.  Loi with "Body Contact."

Here's a classic Disconet flashback as Jackson fever sweeps the country with The Jacksons tour and new album.  The Jacksons' "Triumph" album on Epic/CBS charted #1 in late 1980 thanks to several excellent selections, and "Can You Feel It" kept dance floors busy in early 1981 with the special edit done by Mike Lewis, Steve Algozino and Bob Logan.

Michael and Jackie Jackson wrote "Can You Feel It", with lead vocals by Michael and Randy Jackson.

Mike, Steve and Bob performed over 300 carefully-crafted edits which made the song an even stronger dance floor favorite, and this encore presentation should be useful to DJs who missed the original Disconet program or wore their copy out.

Loi is next on this encore side with "Body Contact", from her G-Clef/Canada 12".  This sweet Jamaican lady wrote the song, which was produced by Joe Richards, and became a cult favorite in several clubs… as well as a part of the "Prime Cuts" compilation.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 13:07, beginning at 125 BPM and then slipping into 116 BPM.

Dan Hartman's "I Can Dream About You" and Patti Austin's "Rhythm Of The Street" get extended for your floor.

Movie soundtracks continue to be a major source of excellent dance music, and MCA's "Streets Of Fire" is no exception, especially with Dan Hartman's "I Can Dream About You" which has become an instant club favorite.  Dan wrote the song, which he co-produced with Jimmy Iovine.  The John "Jellybean" Benitez remix has been edited with portions of the original vocal and instrumental versions to provide you with this special extended version for extra dreaming.

Patti Austin is next with "Rhythm Of The Street" from her Qwest/Warner Brothers "Patti Austin" LP.  Patti made her professional debut at age five, when Dinah Washington introduced her at New York's Apollo Theatre and she brought down the house with "Teach Me Tonight."  Patti did backgrounds for major artists like Billy Joel and Michael Jackson, and at one point had her voice on four soft-drink and three hamburger chain network TV commercial jingles all at the same time!  Patti is now surrounded by top people on her new album, from executive producers Quincy Jones and Ed Eckstine to Narada Michael Walden who produced "Rhythm Of The Street."  Jellybean's original dance remix has been edited and extended for you here to give your audience a new perspective on "Rhythm."

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 14:32, beginning at 113 BPM (beats per minute) and then accapelloing into 125 BPM.

Chuck Parsons extends M+M's "Black Stations/White Stations."  Special Psychedelic Furs' "Heartbeat."

M+M (formerly known as Martha and the Muffins) have been developing very interesting new music in Canada for three years, and have a big stateside breakthrough with "Black Stations/ White Stations" on RCA.  Mark Gane and Martha Johnson wrote the song, and co-produced with Daniel Lanois.

Chuck Parsons has developed a special Disconet version for you using the remix and instrumental versions on the 12" commercial release.  Chuck began spinning records nine years ago in Washington, DC, and for the past seven years has been playing at The Hippopotamus in Baltimore.  He has also made regular guest appearances at The Saint in New York for the past three seasons, keeping his music fresh and exciting.  While this is Chuck's first appearance on Disconet, he's been using his golden editing blade to prepare special edits like this one for quite some time and has developed a good feeling for flow and floor response.

Chuck's edit should help you keep delivering your audience a song they instantly loved from coast to coast, now with a fresh slant.

The Psychedelic Furs are next with an extended version of "Heartbeat" from their Columbia/CBS 12".  The group arranged the song, and the heartbeat of "Heartbeat" comes from the percussion precision of Keith Forsey, who produced.

Keith worked with Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder (among others) during the golden age of disco, with countless millions of his drum beats keeping the world dancing.

And The Furs are no exception to Keith's percussion (and production) expertise.  The song gets cooking earlier on this Disconet extended edit, and some of the rhythm loops should help you keep your floor excited.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 13:59, from 120 BPM to 126 BPM.

Rama's "Don't Want You To Be" gets the Disconet treatment to help you heat your floor for more!

Rama's "Don't Want You To Be" on Sugarscoop is developing into quite the street record with a wide dance appeal, and producer Raul A. Rodriguez has developed a special extended version using portions of the vocal and dub sides of the commercial 12" release.

Raul wrote the song with Man "Hip Hop, Be Bop" Parrish, and Michael Rudetsky (who wrote some of the material on the original Man Parrish album.)  Raul's distinctive percussion fills, using real as well as Linn and Roland-generated sounds, flow throughout "Don't Want You To Be."  In addition to the vocals, a distinctive instrumental keyboard line and creative use of the Emulator (via ace keyboardist Marcus Barone) keep the song moving.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 9:22 at 118 BPM.
