|Alice DJ - Better Off Alone
Every now and then a tune comes along that has that infectious groove that makes you love it (touché Mambo No. 5!) and Better off Alone is one of them! Short punchy beats pulsating your speakers will force you to at least tap your foot or more to this simple, yet clever high NRG beat! Starting from just a steady drum which beginner DJs are sure to love and building up that familiar Euro style that is gaining more and more momentum every day here in the States, this song has enough breaks than one of Chers ribs for more experienced DJs. Topping out at almost 7 minutes with plenty of time for intros and outros this song is a DJs dream.
Alice DJ's first venture into vocals has its merits. While the song doesnt particularly take the listener on a journey, its more of a smattering of lets collaborate for a couple of hours, and see where it takes us, the vocals are easy to understand, makes sense and compared to so much of the other Euro music that is coming out of the UK right now, they havent sped her vocals up to sound like Minnie Mouse on helium. Aqua, are you listening?
|Better off Alone has paid its dues and I personally think its fantastic to see the song reaping the rewards, from working its way up DJ PJs Top Picks on the NAJMRecords.com; to gaining massive radio airplay on hugely popular stations in South Florida including WPOW 96.5 and WHYI 100.7. Which as we say in South Florida, if you make rotation on WPOW; youve got a hit! Buy this record and watch your dance floor flood, and while your at it, tell em that NAJM told ya!|
