Various: Now Dance
Sure there are plenty of compilations out there circulating the same hits over and over, but many of them rarely go out of their way to approach the formula a bit differently. Well folks you are in luck, because Now Dance has decided to twist the formula a little and add a fresh take to your favourite winter hits with some unique mixes by the sensational Denzal Park. Cee Lo Green is in fine form on the cruisy Le Castle Vania Remix of Forget You, whilst Groove Armada funk the airwaves with the 80’s-esq History (Grum Remix). Aussie dance heroes Miami Horror excite with the gorgeous Holidays (featuring Alan Palomo), but it is Song for Lisa (Benny Benassi Mix) by The Japanese Popstars that really excites with its overpowering dance beats and lush synths. It is truly a smash hit. Rarely do I fall in love with a dance compilation, but Now Dance appears to have the right mixes and hits together in the right place. It’s the ideal compilation to brush away those winter blues.
