“ Genre: Dance & Electronic - Techno & Trance / Artist: Cascada / Import / Audio CD released 2006-07-18 at Water „
We know Cascada off the back of their own career as a dance act. With hits like 'Everytime We Touch' and 'Miracle' under their belt, their attentions soon turned to remixing other peoples' songs. This album is a collection of Cascada sounding material, given their stamp of approval.
Groove Coverage are much in the vein of Cascada, '7 Years and 50 Days' has a thunderous bassline which will drive you to any dancefloor and very strong percussion. It builds in a typical Cascada fashion, arriving at the breakdown a minute in. A pleasing female vocal delivers the rather bland lyrics, but you're not really listening to the lyrics, it is the energy and fun of the song which is important here. The track peaks with a cheesy riff with those infamous Cascada synths providing a somewhat predictable tune. Sufficient but not mesmerising.
If ever there was a Cascada clone, Dyce must surely be a winner. A busty blonde with a sweet girly voice laments how real love is. The chorus is bouncy and fresh and the song sounds like it belonged on the second Cascada album. If you liked 'Everytime We Touch' then this will float your boat.
Lazard is another one I recommend. A slightly harder than expected start, crashing into a female breakdown with a very subtle piano floating in the background. The vocals are a touch wispy and ethereal but they are balanced well with a chunky riff with a very content melody.
There are twelve tracks on the album in total, all remixed by Cascada. They are not especially imaginative, but will suffice for cheesy parties and will please Clubland fans. The artwork is also quite drab.
