|Of all of the HARD TRANCE coming out of the U.K. and Europe at the beginning of 21st Century, I enjoyed the collaboration of SCHARFRICHTER 7 and TONTEUFEL from Germany the most!|
|AB-WEHR-TON! (ORIGINAL CLUB MIX)|

|Tons of amazing GOA/PSY TRANCE continues to come out in the 21st Century! I loved some amazing material from the supergroups: JUNO REACTOR, INFECTED MUSHROOM and SHPONGLE!
Yet my favourite was TEXAS FAGGOT from FINLAND!

|Of all of the DOWNTEMPO coming out in the 21st Century, i enjoyed the controversial "Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes" by THIEVERY CORPORATION featuring the compelling vocals of EMILIANA TORRINI the most!|

|My favourite LOUNGE remix came out in 2000. The AWAY TEAM (Andy Lovegrove and Ian Davenport) gave SHIRLEY BASSEY's classic "Where Do I Begin" a classy TRIHOP lift, retaining the charms of the original vocal performance!|
|WHERE DO I BEGIN (AWAY TEAM MIX)|
SHIRLEY BASSEY And AWAYTEAM - 12" - EMI
|As I said on THE REAL HISTORY OF DISCO:
"The DETROIT TECHNO institution the UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE has kept releasing incredible TECHNO and Detroit ELECTRO records throughout the 1990's and right up to today. They would release on 7" single an accapella version of their wildly influential "Transition" in 2003 that has continued to provide strength and reflection for millions. "
I was one of those millions!
UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE - 7" - UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE
|I really enjoyed the legendary underground HOUSE artist called the 'GRAND HIGH PRIEST' (Craig S. Loftis) and his raw tribal treatments with "Mary Mary" in 2006!|

|I really love the description of CRAVO E CANELA in the DISCOGS website!:
"Portuguese for "Carnations and Cinnamon," this is a partnership between Bombay super-producer Miguel Graça and Trevor Walker, Ottawa's godfather of house."
Featuring the vocals of TREVOR WALKER, "Shake" is my favourite local record! It is tribal house with it's own identifiable cool.
CRAVO E CANELA - 12" - BOMBAY
|One of my favourites of recent years was always a big hit at earlier Barnstorm gigs as their "Chill Zone dj". It is a bootleg of a bootleg! The MK bug of "Freekin' You" takes a randy HIPHOP classic from JODECI and gives it tight highly suggestive HOUSE MUSIC splash!|
|FREEKIN' YOU (MK DUB)|
JODECI - 12" - LF
|One of the greatest singing sensations coming out of Italy, MARIO BIONDI with THE HIGH FIVE QUINTET offered the romantic NUDISCO charmer "This Is What You Are" in 2007. It is still one of my favourite DISCO songs!|
|THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE|
MARIO BIONDI & THE HIGH FIVE QUINTET - 12" - EXPANSION

|Of all of the ELECTRO HOUSE coming out in the early 2000's, I enjoyed the 'LO5 Vocal Mix' of "A Kind Of Peace" by England's FAITHLESS the most!|
