Cult classic artist Terri ("Ain't Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You") Desario is next bringing up the energy to a pounding 140 BPM.  "Overnight Success," her latest import 12" from the Epic/Holland album of the same name, has gotten a lot of attention in the clubs.  Casey Jones, no newcomer to the Disconet editing block, has extended the intro and added a few little surprises along the way that will pack your floor!  Joey Carbon and Richie Zito produced.  They also co-wrote "Overnight Success" with Ms. Desario.  The executive producer is Kazuo Yoshie.  We know this one will be an overnight success on your dance floor.

Watch out, Rockettes!  Art Of Noise is kicking up their Legs.  Connie from the Sunshine State gets funky with, "Funky Little Beat."

Art Of Noise kicks off this side with "Legs," a strong follow up to their hit "Close To The Ed/Ed/Ed/Ed/Ed/it."  The China Records/Chrysalis 12" was written and produced by the group.  Classically trained studio musician and composer Anne Dudley, award winning recording engineer Gary Langan, and master Fairlight programmer/player Jonathan (J.J.) Jeczalik are The Art of Noise.  Although they keep a low profile in their photos and covers, their creative sounds speak for themselves.  The trio came together as part of Trevor Horn's production team and worked together on Malcolm McClaren's "Duck Rock" album.  Next came The Art Of Noise and some of the most original sounds on the music scene today.

The Sunnyview label and the Sunshine State give us Connie, a 21 year old Miami native who's ready for stardom.  "Funky Little Beat," her premiere single, has been heating up the turntables and airways down south, and the fire is spreading.  Mentor Henry Stone is ready to put that Florida Sunshine sound back on the map!  Connie will be ready.  She's now preparing her debut album with producer Amos Larkins II.  Watch for it on Sunnyview in February.

Move over Sade, Princess takes rein with "After The Love Has Gone."  Sam Harris proclaims "I'd Do It All Again."

Princess follows up her smash hit, "Say I'm Your Number One," with another chartbound release which should guarantee her rein for some time.  Her latest Next Plateau 12", "After The Love Has Gone," has been given that special Disconet treatment by Raul and Steven.  "After The Love Has Gone" was written and produced by Stock, Aitken, and Waterman.  The 12" was mixed by our friend Phil Harding.

Sam Harris, who made his Disconet debut in 1984 (Vol. 7, Pgm. 4) with "Hearts On Fire," does it again!  "I'd Do It All Again" is, the first 12" release from his new Motown album titled "Sam I Am."  Taking on more creative control, Sam co-produced the track aIong with Lauren Wood.  The Motown 12" was mixed by the M&M team, John Morales and Sergio Munzibai, and now has been specially edited for this Disconet program.

Rhythm Master, Bernie Worrell declares "This Time You Lose."  Ralph MacDonald counters with "You Need More Calypso."

Talking Heads' rhythm master Bernie Worrell premieres on Disconet with his first project as a solo artist on Invasion Records.  "This Time You Lose" is destined to become an instant pop hit as well as a dance floor pleaser.  Bernie Worrell has been influential musically since he was a teenager working with George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic.  He went on to play with the Talking Heads and to star in their classic film, "Stop Making Sense."  Lately Bernie has been working with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Yoko Ono, and Fred Schneider of the B-52s, to name a few.

Raul Rodriguez and Mark Berry were at RPM Studios recently remixing this cut, and have given us a special extended version for Disconet.  The 12" was produced by Jimmy Douglass and Bernie Worrell.  Executive producer was Win Wilford.

Next is another rhythm master, or should we say rhythm king, Ralph MacDonald.  "You Need More Calypso" is from Ralph's latest Polygram album, "Surprise."  Calypso is something Ralph MacDonald is well versed in.  He is the son of calypso music legend Macbeth The Great, and at the age of 16 began touring with Harry Belafonte.  Since then he has become famous as a performer, composer, producer, and session leader.

"You Need More Calypso" was remixed by Mark Berry and Raul Rodriguez at Bear Tracks Studio in upstate New York.  Raul's golden blade furnishes Disconet with a fantastic edit!!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 15:18, from 117 BPM to 115 BPM.
