What do the letters CD stand for?


With a career spanning 20 years, it might come as a surprise to some that ‘Nine Lives’ is John 00 Flemings first solo studio album. It represents a new turning point for him, Fleming being a dedicated supporter of the more specialist scene. John is going back to his roots, making music solely aimed for the dance floor with no care for the commercial mainstream. That’s where the big difference lies. Music with soul. Music with passion. Music to represent the artist within. John explains ‘Trance has become a dirty word, we need to return to the ethos of how this genre gained this tag in the beginning. History shows underground DJ’s move the scene forward I want to show clubland there’s a more serious side to Trance’

What Matters Most

The incomparable Barbra Streisand’s long-cherished desire to release an album of music with lyrics exclusively written by her collaborators and friends, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, will be achieved with her latest release What Matters Most- Barbra Streisand Sings the Lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman

“What Matters Most” is her first new album since the September 2009 release of “Love Is The Answer,” which went to Number One on both sides of the Atlantic, making her the only artist to achieve number one albums in five consecutive decades.

The new album, which Streisand personally produced, is comprised of ten Bergman songs which Streisand has never previously recorded. Included in the set are the Academy Award winning songs “The Windmill of your Mind” (from the 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair);  “So Many Stars” (originally a hit song for Sergio Mendes &  Brazil ‘66); “Nice ‘n’ Easy” (popularized by Frank Sinatra); and “That Face” (first recorded by Fred Astaire).
The CD will be packaged in a jewel box with a 24-page colour booklet.
