Kenn Friedman and Phil Brown extend INXS' "I Send A Message."  Joseph Watt gives Berlin the added "Touch."

INXS (pronounced "in excess") was formed in Sydney, Australia in 1979, and made their U.S. debut on Atco/Atlantic with last year's "Shabooh Shabooh" LP.  Their new "The Swing" LP is full of excellent dance material, including "I Send A Message" written by the group's lead vocalist Michael Hutchence and keyboardist Andrew Farriss.  Phil Brown (of Amigo Studios) and Kenn Friedman (of YOR Promotions and premiere west coast music bon vivant) have done an extended edit of "I Send A Message" exclusively for you on this Disconet program.  The original tracks were produced, arranged and mixed by Nick Lavnay, and now they cook even more with the Friedman/Brown mix.

Berlin is next with "Touch."  Their roots go back six years ago, when founding member John Crawford broke his leg playing basketball in high school and began guitar lessons.  As their first self-produced and self-financed EP began to hit in the fall of 1982, every major wanted them and they signed with Geffen, with "Sex" as their first major single.  Their first full-length LP came out earlier this year ("Love Life"), produced by Mike Howlett (Flock Of Seagulls, OMD, Blancmange.)  Ten diverse songs demonstrate the group's wide range, including "Touch" written by John, lead singer Terri Nunn and the group's synth wiz, David Diamond.  San Francisco's Joseph Watt has taken his golden blade in hand and developed a special extended version of "Touch" for you.  The energy never stops and Joseph's special breaks along the way keep the track happening for you.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 11:08, beginning at 137 BPM (beats per minute) and then kicking into 164.

Jimmy Ruffin's "Hold On To My Love."  The classic Robbie Leslie remix keeps your summer hot!

One of your most-requested classic Disconet remixes appears as the classic flashback side in this issue… Jimmy Ruffin's "Hold On To My Love."  It was written and produced by Robin Gibb and Blue Weaver, and originally appeared on an RSO album and 7" with an instrumental side.  New York DJ Robbie Leslie knitted the two versions together, and "Hold On" became a club classic.

Jimmy appeared on a duet with Jackson Moore ("I'm Gonna Love You Forever") on ERC/UK, and is now finishing a new solo song called "Young Heart" which should be on ERC later this summer, backed with the classic "Hold On."

The song and remix sound fresh today, so fasten your seatbelt and watch them sweat.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 8:25 at 129 BPM.

Valapucci gives Debbie Deb's "When I Hear Music" more.  Animal remixes Edgar Winter's "Son Of Frankenstein."

Debbie Deb's "When I Hear Music" made waves (or rather, tidal waves) in the Miami area and is now becoming a big hit nationally on Jam Packed/Sunnyview.  The song was written, produced and engineered by "Pretty" Tony Butler, all done at M.S.I. Studios in Miami. "When I Hear Music" has magical charm which is instantly contagious, and sounds great on the radio as well as out of your giant boom boxes.  Valapucci has taken the original vocal and dub versions and knitted them together into a specially extended version for you on this Disconet.  Enjoy!

Edgar Winter is next with "Son Of Frankinstein (1984.)"  This is a special club remix version done by Jose "Animal" Diaz which brings a whole new perspective to the original tracks released earlier, and previews Body Rock's commercial release planned for early fall.  Edgar Winter wrote the song, and produced with Tom Silverman.  The original "Frankenstein" went gold in 1974, and Animal's remix should give the track a real boost for your fall playlist.  Frank Heller engineered at Unique.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 14:50, from 128 BPM to a groovin' 112.

Lorna sings "The Whole World's Goin' Crazee."  Electric Theatre's "The Clown" gets extended for your floor.

Lorna (a/k/a Lorna Luft) is back with her second Silver Blue/CBS 12" entitled "The Whole World's Goin' Crazee."  This song was originally done by Slade ("Come On Hear The Noise"), and the new version was produced by Joel Diamond with keyboards and arrangements by Marcus Barone.  While a very famous mother (Judy Garland) and half-sister (Liza Minnelli) still dominate her career, Lorna is coming into her own as both an actress and singer, including roles in "Grease 2", "Where The Boys Are" and Broadway's "Extremities."  Her vocals keep the energy flowing in "The Whole World's Going Crazee", which appears here in specially extended form using portions of the instrumental TV track.

Electric Theatre is next with a special version of "The Clown" from their Phonogram/West Germany commercial 12" release.  Written and produced by R.C. Charly for Boogietunes Productions, the song combines the best elements of Eurosound with a good dance beat and nice, special electronic effects.  The breaks and cheering sounds (akin the sound of the crowd at a bullfight, almost!) are woven into the story of a clown, and we've added some extensions here and there to keep them moving for even more fun.  Check out the commercial import, which has two versions on it for you!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 14:57, from 142 BPM to 139 BPM.
