The "blonde one" from Euro-pop behemoths Abba hasn't released any English language recordings in over eight years. Her welcome return with "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" is taken from her forthcoming??"My Colouring Book" album heralding a true renaissance for the "voice of Abba". Originally recorded in 1969 by Cilla Black, Faltskog's version is a marvellous amalgamation of epic balladry and sixties production, sounding like a great lost Carpenters' track.

Four years ago Agnetha Faltskog??started to research the music of the sixties. She delved into books, checked charts and began collecting large quantities of rare records. The eventual results of this meticulous undertaking became the central focus on "My Colouring Book".
The album was recorded in Stockholm's legendary Atlantis Studios (where Abba first recorded thirty years ago) and features thirteen tracks of mesmerising pop brilliance. "When You Walk In The Room" (written by Jackie de Shannon) and "Sometimes When I'm Dreaming" (written by Mike Batt) are obvious highlights, but they are joined by a host of other classic gems.
"Mecano Mind" is the latest album by Syntax. Featuring the smash hit "Message" and the singles "Pray" and "Bliss".

Already a bit of a floor-filler in some of Europe's sweatiest clubs, not-to-mention a regular in the sets of Sasha, Digweed, Seb Fontaine and Paul Oakenfold, amongst other A-list deejays, Illustrious do us all a favour and unleash Syntax's massive prog-trancer 'Pray'. The work of Mike Tournier (Fluke) and vocalist Jan Burton, this is one of those rare tracks that straddles musical boundaries whilst at the same time remaining rooted firmly in the centre of a peaktime dancefloor, ANY peaktime dancefloor! Whilst Junkie XL and Dave London are on hand to deliver the remixes.
Fresh from a two year hiatus, superstar DJ Armand Van Helden returns. After slaying dancefloors at the Miami WMC, 'Hear My Name' is destined to be huge. Providing the vocals are Spalding Rockwell, a girl duo that Armand discovered singing in a local bar in New York, who give the trak an electro-punk edge.
