Monthly Music Chart Returns - July!

I've been on a real music kick lately, I guess most of the stuff does get released around summer time or does it only feel like it. My top 5 for the month:

1. Beyonce - Deja Vu

She landed at #1 for my year end chart for 2003, will she repeat the feat this year ? She has a very good shot at it, her best track and video since Crazy In Love.

2. Deux - Xpand

Deep house goodness to follow up to the massive 'Sun Rising Up'. If a dance record would ever be described as glamorous, this would be it.

3. Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind (Scumfrog's Extreme Makeover)

Believe it or not this works, fantastic dirty house remix the elevates our favorite blonde heiress bimbo's mediocre single from the ashes and onto the dancefloors.

4. Justin Timberlake - Sexy Back

Has our favorite N'Syncer been hanging out at The Cock lately(no, not Lance!) ? It sure sounds like it. Justin's new single is an amazingly non-commercial sounding electro-fuelled number, who knew he had this in him.

5. Christina Aguilera - Ain't No Other Man

Its feeling a bit like 2003 all over again, with Beyonce, Justin and Christina dominating this month. Xtina's track is definitely a grower, not her best effort but it works.

Oh, Jessica!

In what has to be the strangest marketing idea in music this year, Jessica Simpson is offering a personalized mp3 download of her new single with your name sung in the song. Amazingly neither Rami, Ramification or even Romesha are available as choices, The Swines!

In The House

I haven't done a music post in some time, but there are some great new house tracks out right now that I am absolutely loving. My current top 5:

1. Chris Lake vs Kings of Tommorow - Finally Changes

My favorite mash-up of the moment of two great house records. The beautiful soulful vocal from the Kings of Tommorow record laid on top of the gorgeous piano riff from Chris Lake.

2. Fireflies feat Alexandra Prince - I Can't Get Enough

Alexandra Prince did the lead vocal duties on Gadjo's 'So Many Times' and she sounds great as ever on this disco house number. Very summery.

3. Fedde Le Grande - Put Your Hands Up For Detroit

This record has got one of the chunkiest electro beats I've heard in a long time, will be massive on dancefloors.

4. Ian Carey Presents The Good Guys - Lose Control

This has Ian Carey's signature sound all over it and it is fantastic.

5. Tune Brothers - I Like It

Another great piano riff, with the best remixes coming from Wawa and Ian Carey.
