Official Press Release
CIDC Records’ Best of 80s Dance compilations have been among the Apple® iTunes®
Music Store’s top-selling dance albums year after year. And for 2012 and beyond, we’re
pleased to bring you Volume 4 of this incredible, best-selling series!
We begin our musical journey with a Topmodelz take on the 1986 hit, Your Love. Originally
from The Outfield, it hit #7 on the Billboard® Top 100 chart that year, and has
been heard far and wide since—including within the soundtrack of the renowned Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City videogame, which was itself set in the 1980s.
CAPP/CIDC recording artist DJ Skillmaster makes multiple appearances on this
volume, including his recent hit, She Drives Me Crazy. This incredible song was made
famous in 1988 by Fine Young Cannibals, and was a Billboard #1 hit.
The Bryan Adams hit Run to You is next up. Released in 1984, and becoming a Billboard
#6 hit, one of Germany’s top producers, Jan Wayne, reinterprets the track for a
new decade with CAPP/CIDC’s own Fab (Fabrizio Levita) delivering the vocals. Fab is a
charming Italian entertainer who can be heard on over a million CDs.
All-American dance diva Raquela is back on Volume 4 with her take on the classic that
the late Laura Branigan made famous in the USA: Gloria. Originally released in 1979
by its Italian composer Umberto Tozzi, Branigan took the English lyrics (written by
Trevor Veitch) and made the song a 2 million selling smash hit!
Fab comes back again with his take on the Michael Sembello hit, Maniac. Featured in
the 1983 movie Flashdance, it was a #1 hit for two weeks running in that year.
Nivek Tek is the producer behind acts including Yumm Yumm, and a recording artist in
his own right. For this volume, he’s back with his take on the Thompson Twins hit, Hold
Me Now. It hit US shores in 1984 hitting #3 on the Billboard charts.
Jacinta is the beloved dance artist who brought us hits like Destination and Electric
Universe. While she currently calls Austin, Texas home, as an Australia native, it seemed
fitting that Jacinta would bring us her take on fellow Aussie Olivia Newton-John’s classic,
Fab makes yet another appearance in this volume with Everybody Wants To Rule The
World, the 1985 hit for Tears for Fears that reached #2 on the charts that year.
Carol Hahn knows the 80’s; she was a Billboard® charting dance recording artist
then—and still is, with hits like I Can Stop the Rain and Into the Night. For this volume,
she joins-up with CAPP/CIDC recording artist and renowned producer Cary August to
bring us their take on the When in Rome classic, The Promise. This 1988 song was a
Top 20 hit in the US, and now is retooled for a new decade.
Raquela’s second contribution to this volume is her take on Let the Music Play. The
original was done by Shannon, and was a club smash back in the day, reaching #1 on
the dance charts, and #8 on the broader pop charts. And now we present it, refreshed
for an entirely new generation of club goers!
DJ Skillmaster is up next once again, delivering a competent take on the classic track
from The Human League, Human. The track appeared on The League’s album titled
Crash, which was produced by the infamous Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who penned
this song. Now Skillmaster drives-home his heartfelt version.
It wouldn’t be the 80s with a bit of Phil Collins music, so we give you Another Day in
Paradise! Assembled by top European producers Massmann vs. Ippytraxx and featuring
our own Fab on vocals, this track will resonate for 80s lovers while sweeping you off
to a whole new version of paradise.
We bring you DJ Skillmaster and Fab on this incredible collection, so why not both
together? They bring you their take on Don’t Dream It’s Over, the 80s hit originally
recorded and made famous by Crowded House.
Next up is CIDC newcomer Shannon Bryant. This Canadian-born singer/songwriter now
calls San Francisco home, and has provided us with an incredible “chill out” take on
the Christopher Cross classic, Sailing. Cross’ soft rock original was released in 1980,
and hit the #1 spot.
Finally, DJ Skillmaster once again comes to the floor with his take on Australian
supergroup Icehouse’s track, Hey Little Girl. While this particular track did not chart in
the US, and isn’t its best-known song with audiences here (the group is better known
for songs like Crazy), it is arguably one of the group’s strongest—and was a hit for the
group across Europe (as well as in their home country). Skillmaster gives us a fantastic
rendition of this great song.
