S&K × Smile.dk!

Posted by DanceMaster on November 12, 2008


Revolution X still hasn’t been released on iTunes or Amazon MP3, but there’s some exciting news from S&K!

Joint Ventures in Music!! SMiLE.dk, the famous and successful DDR producer has joined forces with S&K. In the near future there will be a new release of Get up n move, remixed by United Forces. In addition, there will be at least one new track produced by both teams, the projekt and song names are still secret, but will be revealed shortly. Stay tuned of more news shortly!

Wow, DJ Slash is really getting around, isn’t he? At this rate I wouldn’t be surprised if he resurrected Franky G. 😛

Edit: Revolution X is now available on Rhapsody. “Don’t Stop” is definitely the spiritual successor to “Get Up ‘n Move.”


S&K – Revolution X

Posted by DanceMaster on October 16, 2008


S&K have finally released an album of sorts, with 3 brand new tracks as well as 8 tracks from their Dancemania years. The album is currently available digitally at Musicload: http://www.musicload.de/album/3994129_2/sk/revolution-x/item.html

“Don’t Stop” is pretty darn catchy.

Anyway, last I checked the album still isn’t available on iTunes or Amazon MP3, and I don’t yet know if people outside of Germany can purchase from Musicload. I’ll post an update if/when the tracks become available in the US.

Again, you can listen to samples of their old and new songs here: http://sandkmusic.com/pages/music.php


S&K digital downloads coming soon!

DJ Kirk has confirmed that digital downloads should be available in about 3 weeks on Amazon, Music Load, and iTunes.

Again, you can listen to samples of their old and new songs here: http://sandkmusic.com/pages/music.php

I wonder if the rest of the Black Forest catalogue will go up as well? Steve Rhyner did quite a few tracks for Dancemania Speed as well, but so far it seems that only S&K’s tracks are going up.


S&K Update!

Posted by DanceMaster on August 31, 2008


S&K finally updated their official website with some great news: “Get Up ‘n Move” will be featured on DDR X! That makes it the third confirmed returning license so far.

Additionally, S&K have put up samples of their new songs: http://sandkmusic.com/pages/music.php

The new songs as well as S&K’s entire back catalogue will soon be available on iTunes, Amazon, and MusicLoad.de


S&K are back!

Additionally, check out Kirk Monteux’s solo album, which is decidedly different from his S&K work: http://www.kirkmonteux.com/

I originally read that as “Sand K Music” ^^; Anyway, the duo best known for “Get Up’n Move” are back and producing new material. The last new song they produced for Dancemania was back in 2002, so it’s definitely been a while since we last heard from them.

S (Sugardaddy, a.k.a. Brian Cornell) and K (Kirk Monteux) began their Dancemania career with “Get Up ‘n Move” way back in 1998. The song first appeared on Dancemania Bass #2 before being chosen for inclusion on Dance Dance Revolution 2nd Mix. From there S&K went on to appear on various Dancemania Speed releases. Their complete Dancemania discography is as follows:

1998 – Get Up ‘n Move [from Dancemania Bass #2]
2001 – Sound of the Nations [from Dancemania Speed 6]
2001 – Going to Suzuka (Shoemaker Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 7]
2001 – Happy Again (S&K Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 7]
2002 – Party Time (Speedy Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 8]
2002 – Everybody (Speedy Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 9]
2002 – Get Up ‘n Move (Speed Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 10]
2002 – Prelude -from Cello Suite No.1 in G major, BWV 1007 [from classical Speed]

Anyway, I wrote them an e-mail and got this reply:

“thanks for contacting us. Kirk and I have decided to kick off a new era of S&K. In a few weeks, you will be able to purchase and preview all of our music, as well as new tracks we are currently working on.

We would love to hear more from our fan base, so please help us in getting more feedback to what you would like, not just in downloads, but in music direction as well.”

So, there you have it. Either leave messages at the Dancemania EX forums and I’ll relay them, or e-mail S&K directly and let them know what you want. Personally, I’d love to see more Speed stuff from them. “Sound of the Nations” and “Going to Suzuka” were some of my all-time favorites from the Speed series, and the mere thought of having new songs in that style is very exciting. Please help spread the word!
