Congress – 40 Miles

Here is a juicy slice of old skool house music which has been borrowed and remixed a few times over the years including a fabulous new version by Cloudburst ft Culture Girl. One thing I really like about early 90s dance music is the catchy piano riffs. The original by Congress featuring Lucinda Sieger was released way back in 1991 and today we are so spoiled by modern production and autotune especially. Not the best vocal take but it’s still a classic.

Gabriella Cilmi cleans up at the the ARIAs with 6 awards.

Melbourne’s singing sensation Gabriella Cilmi is the new princess of pop after winning 6 out of 6 nominations at last nights ARIA Awards (the Australian version of the BRITS). She won Highest Selling Single, Best Pop Release, Breakthrough Artist (single), Best Female Artist, Single of the Year, & Breakthrough Artist (album).

We are very happy for her and all the team who worked tirelessly to make this happen. Well done Gabriella.

Enjoy the video of Gabriella performing “Sweet About Me” the song that made her a huge success.

M People – How can I Love You More (Remix)

For those of you who were too young to experience this fantastic song. we decided to tip it again. There is nothing better than house music with real music, house music that will be played in 10, 20, 30 years time. House music that will shut up the rock boys and indie girls who think dance music is all noise. M People were masters at creating this, partly due to the fact they were real musicians. Enjoy it !

Soul II Soul – Back To Life (Club Mix)

This one has been getting a lot of spins on the Myhotmusic jukebox and is an example of pure British soul and house music made back in the day when house music was in its infancy and arguably at its most creative. This week on Myhotmusic we are going to revive the melodic, sexy and funky house music which seems completely lost in the sea of electro mediocrity that we seem to be force fed by talentless producers and DJs. Don’t get me wrong there are many good electro tunes out there but the trend now especially here in Australia is to go for style over substance and there are a lot of so called cool records out there that sound diabolically tripe and banal. Anyway rant over. We are on a mission here.

Britney Spears “Womaniser” Is it any good ?

I got to hear the much anticipated Britney Spears single “Womanizer” after reading about it from other bloggers and journos I decided to give it a good listen. To be honest it left me feeling a bit let down. It’s a minimalistic electropop dance track that sounds like it is in need of a melody. No doubt it will go down well in clubs and Britney’s fans will lap it up but when will Britney record a song that actually does her singing some justice. No doubt it will be a hit but there’s something missing as far as i’m concerned.

Watch it here before the Youtube censors take it down.

Myhotmusic Alert – Ne-Yo “Closer”.

There are a number of songs that owe a lot to Michael Jackson especially in terms of harmonies. Ne-Yo’s song “Closer” is one of those songs. It is also nice to see house music crossing over into r&b in the US. Something that has been done for many years in the UK. Ne-Yo is definitely one of the most talented young artists from America. We love this one and have been playing it non-stop.
