08 (9) - "Sway" - Beni feat. Nomi Ruiz

07 (N) - "Someone's Watching Me" - Midnight Magic - completely in love with Tiffany Roth's vocals, no wonder Midnight Magic enjoy two tracks in my top 10 this month... Their latest EP "What The Eyes Can't See" will keep us on the dancefloor for the rest of 2011 no doubt...
