Forth RFM’s Tom Wilson reviews the Bacardi Beat Dance Chart this week.
D-Tex from Ayrshire are a new entry in this wek’s Bacardi Beat Dance Chart with ‘Natural High’. It’s the lirst release from 23rd Precinct, one of Scotland’s finest record shops in Glasgow's Bath Street.
Another Scottish band doing it on the dance iloor are Solid State Logic from Aberdeen -Chris and Stuart from the granite city with vocals from Sandra
Edwards from England. The track’s called ‘Rise’ and it was released last year on white label and quickly sold 1000. It’s now been picked up by ZTT for UK release.
Finally on the Scottish scene, I had a sneak preview oi the new Time Frequency single the other day and it’s gonna be huge! It’s called “Higher Than Heaven’ and it’s the follow up to the mighty ‘neal Love’. John Campbell you’ve done it again matel
Back in the Bacardi Beat Dance Chart Joey Negro, or Dave Lee to his iriends, is in there at number live with ‘Love Fantasy’; it you like 708 disco this is lor you! 02 look out oi place in the dance chart but with Paul Dakenlold on the mix it’s an essential track. By the way, I hear Paul Dakenlold could be working with Deacon Blue next!
Our top tune this week is lrom one at the hardest working bands on the circuit, Sunscreem. They’ve played up here many times with previous singles ‘Pressure’ and ‘Walir Dn’. Good to see them at the top with ‘Love u More’.
I’ll see you at Jackie 0’s, Klrkcaldy on 1 August playing some at the tracks lrom the Bacardi Beat Dance Chart.
I can’t wait.
