Hall & Oates"'Out Of Touch" and The Twins' "Ballet Rap" get extended for your floor.

Hall and Oates are back with another strong dance song, which they produced along with Bob Clearmountain, called "Out Of Touch."  The RCA 12" includes a vocal side and dub version, with additional production and mix by Arthur Baker all neatly (and streetly) edited by The Latin Rascals.  Both versions have been combined into this special Disconet version to help keep your floor hypnotized a little longer.  The overall result provides a nice combination between the flowing vocals of John Hall and Daryl Oates and the special effects and edits used in the mix.

The Twins are next with a special Disconet version of "The Ballet Rap" from their Hansa/Germany EP.  Sven Dohrow and Ronnie Schreinzer produced the original tracks at Studio Funk, which were mixed by Hubert Henle at Hansa's Mischraum Studios.  The song is fun and traditional, with some nice percussion effects along the way.  Other songs on the EP include "The Game Of Chance" and "A Little More Alive."

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 16:33, beginning at 117 BPM (beats per minute) and then slipping into 111 BPM.

John Sollas, Theo Roca and Howard Merritt extend Sam Harris' "Hearts On Fire."  New "My Love" by Lime!

Sam Harris grew up in Oklahoma, enrolled at UCLA's Theatre and Musical Comedy program in Los Angeles, and while doing a one-man show at The Horn in Santa Monica one of the Star Search.  TV show's producers approached him.  He won 13 shows in a row and became "Best Male Vocalist."  Sam says "Everything good that's ever happened for me has happened because I broke rules and took chances."  His debut LP for Motown, produced by Steve Barri and Tony Peluso, contains a wealth of good dance material including "Sugar Don't Bite."  "Hearts On Fire" is bound to follow as another club favorite, specially extended for this Disconet program from the LP version by Florida's John Sollas, Theo Roca and Howard Merritt.  John and Theo are now involved with production and remix work, and Howard has recently relocated to the sunny south after keeping them jumping at New York's Saint and Moonshadow.

Lime is next with a special Disconet version of "My Love" from their latest Matra LP.  Denis LePage produced the original tracks, which were mixed by Claude Allard and George Cucuzella at Ultra-Son Studios in Montreal.  While this is the most polished Lime project yet, the sound continues to make dance floors happy, with party music continuing to be Lime's forté!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 15:20, from 138 BPM to 130 BPM.

Kelly Page's "A Man Like That" gets a Raul Dance Mix.  Steven Von Blau extends Fire, Inc.'s "Nowhere Fast."

Kelly Page starts this side off with a hot energy song called "A Man Like That" from her GWP/Rams Horn/Holland 12" produced by Ben Liebrand and LaFleur, and originally mixed by Ben at Dureco Studios.  Raul has combined the vocal, dub and rhythm versions into one powerhouse of a song.  With rhythm overtones of "Maniac," and a guitar solo which sounds like Dr. Fred's stomach the morning after, this one really kicks ass!

Fire, Inc. is next with a specially extended version of "Nowhere Fast" from the MCA "Streets of Fire" original soundtrack album.  Steven Von Blau has given this new version some pleasing breaks along the way, as well as a more workable intro and outro.  Jim Steinman wrote and produced the original version, which Fire, Inc's lead singer Holly Sherwood performed to a standing ovation at the Saint.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 17:04, from 152 BPM to 165 BPM.

X-Posed's "Point Of No Return" keeps pumping.  Victor Flores remixes Deodato's "S.O.S. Fire In The Sky."

X-Posed is a new group from Miami with a hot debut 12" release on Pantera called "Point Of No Return."  The song was produced, arranged and composed by Lewis A. Martineé, and the commercial version contains a vocal side and a dub side which have been combined here into a special Disconet version for you.  The electrodance groove has Latin overtones in this production, and the groups lead vocals help make the song very appealing.

Deodato is next with "S.O.S. (Fire In The Sky)", specially edited for you by Victor Flores from the Warner Brothers LP version.  Deodato first came to international attention in 1973 with his "Theme From 2,001" followed by a four year association with Kool & The Gang as producer ("Lady's Night", "Celebration", "Something Special.")  And even in recurrent play today, his "Whistlebump" from the golden age of the late 1970s still sounds good today.

Victor plays at The Circus in West Hollywood, and his golden blades have previously helped turn Wang Chung's "Dance Hall Days" and Evelyn Thomas' "High Energy" into #1 club records.  He provides a nice balance between music and breaks on this latest Deodato song which should very quickly become a club favorite all over the place.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 16:01, beginning at 121 BPM and then moving up to 125 BPM.
