Playing tracks by
Girls Aloud, V and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
Through most of the 2000s, the UK pop chart was home to at least one of the hundreds of songs that were written, produced, or remixed by the team called Xenomania, preceded by what was arguably their most famous, 1998's "Believe" by Cher. Totally self-contained, even the remixes for their singles were created in-house by some of the writing team. This mix features those by Tim Powell's pseudonym, Tony Lamezma (sometimes spelled Lemezma). Of the five studio albums released by Girls Aloud, all singles from the second, third, and fourth featured a Tony Lamezma remix.
Sophie Ellis Bextor was a label-mate of Girls Aloud. Boyband V had three Xenomania tracks on their one and only album, which featured "Hip to Hip" as its second single.
The style of these remixes reminded me a lot of a similarly successful team of the mid-to-late '90s, of which Xenomania leader Brian Higgins had been a member: MOTIV8. Stitched together from lowest BPM to highest. Enjoy!
