ZZ Top is at their dancin' best on this sensational remix of "Velcro Fly". One of today's hottest bands, ZZ Top's current 1986 "Afterburner Tour" concerts have now been attended by over two million fans as the tour winds down on the West coast. "Velcro Fly", the fourth single from the "Afterburner" LP on Warner Bros. Records has been given that magic Jellybean touch and is ready to make your dance floors burn. We've extended the intro and break to make the velcro fly even more. Highlighted by the vocals and the wailin', soulful guitar of Billy Gibbons, the song offers the perfect blend of that special ZZ Top rhythm and percussion. As the song says… "do the 'Velcro Fly'!"

Gwen Guthrie's new Polydor 12", "Ain't Nothin' Goin' On But The Rent", from the LP "Good To Go", puts the padlock on the summer of '86. Topping the R&B and Dance charts, this powerhouse record just might make Gwen Guthrie a cross-over artist, which is surely long overdue. Gwen wrote and produced the tune. One side was mixed by Gwen's comrade at arms, Larry Levan, with the flip side mixed by Mark Berry. This special Disconet version will do the J.O.B. for your floor.
Two Of China is another new local group from Frankfurt Germany. "Los Ninos Del Parque" is their first 12" on Westside Records.

Ricardo Hernandez supplied the vocals to this powerful hip hop/funk record which was recorded and mixed at Dynaton Studios. This cut will really add fire to your hot August dance floor.

Madonna is the ultimate proof that the club circut has the power to generate a legend. "Papa Don't Preach" is the second single from her third Sire Records album, "True Blue", which is burning up the charts. With a new look, sound, and marriage (to Sean Penn), Madonna has also taken on more control of her work. Madonna co-produced "True Blue" with Stephan Bray and Patrick Leonard and co-wrote all nine cuts on the album including "Live To Tell", the album's first hit single and theme song from Sean's film, "At Close Range". This exciting Disconet edit will get your floor into the groove.
"Dial My Number" by Back Bag created such excitement as a German import that Metric Records has picked it up for domestic release.

Get set for your phone to ring off the hook. (Special thanks to Dr. Fred Held of the Miami Telephone Co.).
