02 Love Is The Drug (Rollo & Sister Bliss Monster Mix)
03 Love Is The Drug (Original Version)
04 Love Is The Drug (Rollo & Sister Bliss Deep Mix)
INFO > The 1990s were the defining decade for dance culture, giving popular rise to the remix, the mix album, the superclub, and the superstar DJ. During that halcyon period, many classic tunes were dusted off and polished up for new audiences. Roxy Music’s 1975 hit “Love Is The Drug” was injected with new energy by Rowland Armstrong and Ayalah Bentovim for this 1996 reissue.
What’s the deal with Ferry’s eyepatch?

02 Together Forever (New School Dub)
03 Together Forever (Something For The Red Zone)
04 Together Forever (Something For Roseland)
05 Together Forever (Berrios Beats)
06 Together Forever (Radio Edit)
INFO > I would best describe freestyle as a guilty pleasure. The genre nearly disappeared as the 80s ended; however, the sound was revived in the early-1990s with Carlos Berrios produced hits “Temptation” by Corina, and “Together Forever” by Lisette Melendez. In 1991, “Together Forever” broke the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart—no mean feat for a freestyle single. And just like the song, the promo video is straight up cheese:
Perhaps not surprisingly, freestyle’s popularity persists today.
01 Invisible (Original Vocal Edit) 04:11
02 Invisible (Lost Tribe Vocal Mix) 07:43
03 Rendezvous (Tilt’s Quadraphonic Mix) 08:03

05 I Dream (Tilt’s Resurrection Mix) 07:25
06 What’s This? (Tilt’s Tunnel Mix) 6:46
07 Invisible (Tilt’s Supernatural Dub) 09:00
08 Invisible (Tilt’s Supernatural Vocal Mix) 12:31
INFO > In 1999, the Tilt trio of Michael Parks, Michael Wilson, and John Graham recycled their trance instrumental “Rendezvous” (written and produced with Paul van Dyk) into “Invisible”, featuring former Grace vocalist Dominique Atkins. From a collector’s perspective, it’s one of Hooj Choons’ most confounding releases: multiple slabs of promo vinyl and acetates feature various versions; however, the commercial 12″ only includes the ‘Lost Tribe Vocal Mix’ and “What’s This?” The two UK CD singles compile several—but not all—of the mixes, and they’re edited to comply with UK chart requirements; also, “What’s This?” is excluded entirely. The above tracklisting replicates promo CDR HOOJ073LCD, with additional bonus track ‘Tilt’s Supernatural Vocal Mix.’
HELP > Anyone have the Australian CD with the full-length mixes?
