C&C To Make You Sweat!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Mbop Records) - Undoubtedly one of THE club hits of the halcyon early 1990s house scene - prepare to Sweat again this summer. As, aptly, almost 20 years on, the remixers de jour responsible for the massive 1991 anthem 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' C&C Music Factory have been given the remix treatment themselves. Featuring seven brand spanking new cuts, Sweat: 2010 Mix Collection should send your memory racing nostalgically back to the days when the nation's hippest dancefloors vibrated to the soulful rhythms of the New York house pioneers.

David Cole and Robert Clivilles originally hooked up in the 1980s when Cole was DJing at Manhattan's Better Days and a firm friendship and musical alliance was quickly formed. The pair collaborated with a host of vocalists and went on to produce, write and sell 125 million albums. With such stellar global stars as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin benefitting from their expertise, while their work with Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Grace Jones, Donna Summer, James Brown and Pet Shop Boys quickly garnered them a reputation as the go to duo, when a fresh, vibrant and innovative remix was needed.

Sadly, Cole passed away in 1995 from spinal meningitis, and, after becoming disillusioned with the music industry when Sony Music Entertainment dropped them on the day of his burial, Clivilles turned his back on making music, seemingly forever. But 12 years later and the hit-maker returned to his first love, once again making music with M.V.P. (M.ost Valuable Playas) whose first single titled: 'Roc ya Body (mic check 1,2)' reached no.3 on the European Pop Charts.

Featuring the standout rapping of Brooklyn MC Frederick 'Freedom' Williams and San Francisco power vocalist Martha Wash, the original has now been given the mixing desk treatment by London electro kingpins Nightstylers, while Chicago's DJ Bomber has hooked up with Big Apple production and DJ duo Soulseekers to cut a dub mix, New Jersey legend Cheyne Christian has dropped a Tribal Club take on the classic and budding London MC, DJ and producer Double G has supplied an Electro Club mix.

The remixathon is due to hit the clubbing mecca of Ibiza this summer before getting its release in September.
