Sequal - My Love For You

I really love freestyle music and one of the best albums of the genre is US duo Sequal's 1988 album, which was beautifully remastered and reissued by Cherry Pop Records a couple of years ago. But in 2008, the duo – consisting of Angie Vollaro and Maria Christensen – released a wonderful comeback single called "My Love For You", produced by Giuseppe D. to sound like a classic freestyle track.

The retro freestyle sound is amazing and I really recommend this single to everyone who is a fan of the genre and of eighties dance music in general. The track is available on iTunes, Spotify, Beatport, Amazon UK and Amazon US. Don't miss this gem!

"My Love For You" tracklist:

1. My Love For You (Giuseppe D.'s Back To Miami Radio)
2. My Love For You (Giuseppe D.'s Back To Miami Extended)

Christophe Willem - Starlite

I love discovering electronic pop music, old and new, that I haven't heard before. I recently came across the lovely track "Starlite" by French singer Christophe Willem. I really love the dance-pop sound produced by Freemasons and Christophe has a beautiful voice. The song also includes a sample of the eighties classic "Ain't Nobody". Check out the video down below.

"Starlite" is taken from Christophe's 2011 album "Prismophonic", which is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

As a fan of comedy series "Absolutely Fabulous", I'm looking forward to the upcoming movie starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley. But that's not all. My idol, pop princess Kylie Minogue, has recorded her own version of the series theme song "This Wheel's On Fire" for the movie's soundtrack.

It's always a pleasure getting new Kylie recordings, so you bet I'm excited. You can already buy the track digitally on iTunes, SpotifyAmazon UK and Amazon US. The physical CD edition will be out on July 1.
