Gillingham, Kent, UK (By Mikey: martin.grech@btinternet.com)

RECORD OF THE WEEK

DJ Sammy - Sunlight The summer is here, this is a banging tune with a summer vibe, so get your summer thong out, and give it all. Just when he was being dismissed as a pop-trance covers machine, DJ Sammy returns with an original composition in the shape of debut album opener 'Sunlight'. Another pop-trance anthem in waiting, the delicate Latin orchestration and rousing synths are made for summer dancefloors, will see this crossover with all kinds of top trance jocks.

HOT SHOT RECORD

Jennifer Lopez - I'm Glad This girl has got the body, the talent and the beautiful voice of an angel, boy, what a video, breathtaking, and she's 100% all-woman, plays a homage to the classic dance movie of all-time 'Flashdance'. Seemingly in-exhaustible at the moment; J-Lo returns this week with another fine single in the shape of 'I'm Glad'. Wearing its heart very much on its sleeve, this catchy urban-pop tune is exactly the kind of slick single we've come to expect from La Lopez - but then at the end of the day, that's no bad thing at all!

AFI - Girl's Not Grey AFI stands for A Fire Inside. The first single from an album that's finally starting to earn the plaudits it's always deserved, 'Girl's Not Grey' is looking like the track to see bay-area rockers AFI fly into the UK mainstream. A mainstay on the underground rock scene, they've been earning their dues for years now, and this riotous slab of buzzing, jump around like a loon, sing-a-long punk should see them nudge their way into the UK's Top 40.

Christina Aguilera - Butterfly Unfortunately, I don't think this will reach the dizzy heights of No.1. The third single from her multi-platinum selling new album, Aguilera's latest, 'Fighter', is also a brilliant follow-up to previous hits 'Dirrty' and 'Beautiful'. Displaying yet another side to the versatile 20-year-old singer, 'Fighter' is an anthemic slab of feisty rock-tinted pop that already looks like it's gonna follow its predecessors into the higher echelons of the UK charts.

B2K - Girlfriend Having scored a big hit with last single 'Bump Bump Bump' (their collaboration with P Diddy), urban quartet B2K return with another funky r'n'b anthem in the shape of the brilliant 'Girlfriend'. Already doing the do on the sweatiest urban floors, and a best-seller state-side.

Darius - Girl In The Moon You either love him or hate him, but 'Girl In The Moon', is a lively pop ditty. Having won plenty of new fans on his brilliant Dive In tour, Darius Danesh returns this week with another corking slab of pop goodness in the shape of the brilliant ballad, 'Girl In The Moon'. Showing that he does it tenderly as well as he does it upbeat, this is another brilliant side to an undoubted UK pop talent.

Jamelia ft. Rah Digga - Bout She's been away for a while, but 'Bout' shows that Jamelia, one of the UK's premier r'n'b singers, hasn't lost any of her fire. Featuring a guest rap from Rah Digga, this is a feisty urban anthem that'll hit the best dancefloors hard, whilst it also serves as a gentle reminder of exactly how talented both female singers actually are. Welcome back!

Linkin' Park - Faint Having crash bang walloped their way back onto the UK's metal radar with 'Somewhere I Belong' (the brilliant first single from their latest album), Linkin Park return this week with 'Faint', arguably one of the band's finest singles for some time. Built around their usual mix of beats, scratching and heavy metal thrash, it also happens to find the band at their most accessible and, dare we say, catchy. A superb follow-up to 'Somewhere I Belong'.

Dannii Minogue - Don't wanna Lose This Feeling One of the highlights from her recent 'Neon Nights' album; the catchy original is remixed to the next level. Hot-on-the-heels of her massive #2 hit 'I Begin To Wonder', Dannii Minogue returns this week with another similarly infectious slice of dancefloor friendly pop in the shape of 'Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling'.

Reef - Waster A band whose fire doesn't seem to have dulled at all over the years, Reef return this week with a brand new single that proves the West Country boys can still rock the good fight with the best of them. A typically fiery Reef rock anthem (they've still managed to retain that immediately recognisable sound).

Amy Studt - Misfit This little pop ditty is quite a catchy tune, its fresh and cleverly written by herself and her writing talent started at the tender age of 12. This girl will go a long way, with hits like this. 17-year-old Amy Studt won friends and influenced people when her debut single 'Just A Little Girl' was released almost a year ago. Since then she's been busy writing her forthcoming album (due for release later in the year) and, on the evidence of this single, fine-honing her sound into a very credible competitor to the likes of Avril Lavigne in the angst pop stakes. 'Misfit' is a feisty new single from a potentially huge UK talent, and one that shows we can definitely do this kind of thing as well as our American friends.

The Thrills - Big Sur The follow-up to The Thrills' Top 20 single 'One Horse Town', 'Big Sur' finds the touted Irish rockers fulfilling all their early promise (and hype), not-to-mention serving as a tantalising taster of exactly what's to come from that long-awaited debut album. Another laidback slice of uplifting breezy rock

Michael Woods ft. Imogen Bailey - If U Want Me Michael Woods (the artist formerly known as Warrior) returns to Incentive with a cut that's been huge on the trance scene ever since Judge Jules hammered it off CDR at the back end of summer 2002. Now spruced up for summer 2003 - with a whole batch of brilliant remixes and a vocal from Aussie model Imogen Bailey - 'If You Want Me' is looking like the track that could launch this talented producer, and singer, into a whole different musical stratosphere.
