|Malina - By Your Side (Double
12" Vinyl Set)
Watch out - Tommy Boy
Silver has unleashed the talents of Italy's Pop star Malina on the world. "By Your
Side" is a huge anthematic cross over potential hit. DJPJ has already added this one
to his top tracks to watch future picks.
brings us the "X-Union Tribal Mix" (12:12) which is a stripped down stomper -
just the tribal beats and Malina's silky vocals. There is a really cool and clean break at
the song's bridge. Side D serves up the ultra slick funky "Original Mix" (4:50)
which is a slammin' house laden track in its' own right. The last version is the "Max
Bafa & Giffa - The Monkey Remix" (5:52), which is slightly reminiscent of the
Motiv8 people who produced Gina G. The remix moves around from hard house to euro pop with
this staccato piano riff and trancey breaks. The "Monkey Remix' would be perfect for
a Tea Dance with its cool vocal samples and ever-changing beats.
Malina's vocals are a cross between Taylor Dayne and Amber - and they kick ass. The song is well written with a hugely memorable hook. The production is first rate. The remixes all deliver incredible energy. Dance floors are sure to eat this one up. This is definitely a top of the night record of the best kind. Play this one now for your holiday crowd!
