DYNAMIX P/ NINA EVE "Never Get Me" White Label
Following the path blazed by its maverick predecessor, this explosive 12-inch promo is the eagerly awaited follow up to last year's "Don't Want Another Man" by Dynamix presents Tina Ann. While the lead vocalist (Japanese chanteuse Nina Eve) is new, the same savvy production team is pulling the strings. Combining relentless beats, fresh vocals, and potent synth sequences, the Dynamix Club Mix (9:00) is my pick. Once again, Dynamix magically creates a release whose whole is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. On the flip side, the Channeled Dynamix Dub Vocal(10:15) takes a moodier trance turn in which bare and haunting vocals echoover a swirling matrix of electronic sounds and digital beats. The commercial release promises additional remixes by, among others, Junior Vasquez and Enzo Ginosa. Incredible.

DYNAMIX P/ NINA EVE "Never Get Me" Kult Records/white label
Eddie Cumana and Beppe Savoni are back and in a matter of weeks the name DYNAMIX will be on every domestic dance chart in the country. Following the massive hit of 'Don't Want Another Man" these gentlemen and their newest discovery, NINA EVE, have constructed another powerhouse floor filler that is designed for nothing but prime time play. Adding to this success is a double pack aged release by KULT filled with a variety of remixes talent and sounds. From E.G.'s live samba laced interpretation to Junior Vasquez's staple sound, there is no question that you will find a mix that suit any portion of your night's programming. Canada's Mark Anthony and Alain Vinet (A.K.A. Afterlife) are also equally represented with a rich drama filled mix that will bring even more notariety to this talented duo. You will also hear both, a mainstream DYNAMIX mix and a dark edgier dub. All these remixes only add to the talent of newcomer NINA EVE. A Japanese native from Tokyo, this little lady packs a loud sets of popes and it demands to be heard. Finally there is the rumor that Victor Calderone lent his talent to the remixers line up. That's not the case. The mix in question is in fact one of created by DYNAMIX and some idiot, who did not bother to get his facts straight, posted it on Napster as a Victor Remix. Suffice to say that , buying the actual release will provide you with clarity:
both musically and factually.

BOI Magazine: ( SPREAD ) DYNAMIX P/ NINA EVE "Never Get Me"
In a time when more turntable are sold than guitars and dance music is downloaded more than sex on the internet, there comes a way into the future .They are called DYNAMIX. DYNAMIX presents :words by Jim Belanger and dance music DYNAMIX is a creative collaboration between Eddie Cumana and Beppe Savoni, who when working together become a driving and pioneering force in dance music. DYNAMIX is the brainchild of KULT Records and Eddie Cumana and is built with the vision of taking underground dance and fusing it with cross over elements to generate a more potentially commercial music. Eddie Cumana, a nuyorcuban groove prodigy, has 18 years of well-rounded experience in the music business, while Italian born Beppe Savoni, studied music for over 13 years before moving to New York . Shortly after their introduction, they realized that they shared the same musical vision and created a working partnership. DYNAMIX proved to be a success when they unleashed their first song entitled DYNAMIX presents Tina Ann (Skaller-Cumana) “Don’t Want Another Man” which became last year’s vocal anthem, soaring to the #1 position on the Billboard Club Play Chart in only six weeks. They have scheduled to debut their follow up, DYNAMIX presents NINA EVE “Never Get Me” during Gay Pride Pride 2001 with Junior Vasquez in New York. Other top DJ’s have received advance copies, so you may have already heard it. However if you want a copy for yourself, its not due to release in stores until the week following Pride. With a slew of talented vocalists to work with, their irresistible style and understanding of what works on a dance floor and on radio, Eddie Cumana and Beppe Savoni bring forth a vision that has flavors for the underground and the mainstream as well. Their sound is explosive, international, big room music with tight percussions and thundering groovy bass lines. Only time will tell if DYNAMIX has what it takes to stay on the top. In the meantime they plan to build upon their early success while continuing to bring the sounds of the 21this century to you.

DYNAMIX P/ NINA EVE "Never Get Me" Kult
The DYNAMIX duo are back with the follow up to the chart topping "Don't Want Another Man". lead vocals this time around are taken on by the talents of 19 year old NINA EVE, a native of TOKYO, Japan. Discovered while performing a Jazz number at a NYC College, she was instantly signed to the label and cut a demo for this hard-hitting houser. The Dynamix NYC Club mix is sure to be an out-of-the-box crowed pleaser with its driving rhythms and irresistibly catchy chorus. The channelled Dynamix dub vocal takes the song into a different direction with its darker vibe trancier feel. More mixes are forthcoming from KULT, but if these versions are any indication, this sure is going to be a guaranteed floor filler!

DYNAMIX presents NINA EVE KULT Records
Review Update …A month or so ago I reviewed the new song from Dynamix feat. Nina Eve “Never Get Me” but I was only able to tell you about 2 of the mixes that were slated for release. Now the song is available on CD Maxi and boy are you in for a treat when you buy this single! This is probably the first time that I remember a record label releasing a 2 CD set for just one song! That’s right, the first CD – labeled “Single Mixes” - has 4 radio edits and 7 Club mixes while the second CD - labeled “DJ Tools”-has 1 more full club mix, 6 Instrumental mixes, 1 Bonus Beats mix, 1 Dub mix and 5 Acapellas !!All of this is available on the Commercial CD Maxi single release. Here is a quick review of the newer mixes now available.Cee 12 vs. Dynamix 80’s Retro Mix – This mix leans more toward the R&B side of dance music kind of reminding me of an old Ready For The World song. The Afterlife club mix and channelling Dynamix Vocaldub (I think this is the one everyone thought was Victor Calderone mix) both are solid clubby house mixes with a sort of sensual drummy after-hours appeal. Junior Vasquez contributes his remixing talent and you won’t be disappointed as usual ! The Dynamix NYC club mix is probably the version getting the most play and is definitely the most recognizable out of the bunch since it utilizes the amazingly infectious march style dance beat that was originally introduced with Dynamix’s first release “Don’t Want Another Man” .But the one mix that really stands out as the true gem of the bunch is the E.G. Mediterranean Club Mix. I was blown away by this soulful house mix that combines gorgeous Flamenco beats and guitars with smooth Latin based jazz elements. This is the mix that will stand the test of time in any DJs playlist ! I find it refreshing that a record company is sharing these bonus treats with us and basically encouraging (maybe even challenging) us as to experiment with their song and customize it to our specific tastes. I Congratulate and Thank Kult Records for taking this initiative and hopefully raising the standards for future CD Single releases from other Record Labels. Well there you have it, another chapter in music history – and barely even scraped the tip of the iceberg !I had to stop typing cause my hands are killing me hehe.

DYNAMIX DUO- FIERCE TALENT ON THE VERGE (Next magazine spread)
Mix maestros Dynamix’s Eddie Cumana and Beppe Savoni pump up the jams for divas Inda Matrix and Nina Eve:
Few in Club Land can tame this New York remix team’s housey hit-machine.
In the fickle and fiercely competitive world of dance music, most remixers prefer to work alone. And on rare occasions when they do pair up, their partnerships can easy falter. If gossip and scandal don’t break them up, simply creative differences do. But the New York duo Dynamix seems to have found the key to enjoying shared success on the dancefloor. For the last couple of years, Eddie Cumana and Beppe Savoni have seized clubbland with a slow but steady strings of energetic, edgy house hits that began with their 2000 anthem “Don’t want another man” (Featuring vocals by Tina Ann, (Jeremy Skaller, Eddie Cumana) and continued with last years’ stomper “Never get me” (Featuring vocals by Nina Eve). The boys up and coming single from KULT Records “No Man Can Tame Me” (Love Dominates) (Which unveils their latest vocal discovery Inda Matrix) should hoist Dynamix atop of the charts once again with this edgy sexy S&M groove-Think-The Dominatrix “Sleeps tonight” with a dash of “Independent woman”. Get the picture? three club anthems in as many years. Avoiding oversaturation, Cumana and Savoni prefer to balance their shared studio time with solo projects and individual dj gigs- At such renown world class nightspots as Stereo in Montreal and Club Womb in Tokyo. Chatting with us at his midtown studio, Cumana recalls the teen years spent sneaking into gay clubs, which he says sharpened his knack for modern disco drama.” I happen to be straight” but I am also a New York house rooted dj. I went to teen discos before I was a teen and I went to clubs before I was old enough to go to clubs. If you were a teen ager playing at parties and weddings and you want to graduate into playing at Clubs, man, it was all about the music at the Gay Clubs. I used to sneak into the roller skater nights at Roxy when I was fifthteen! You couldn't get good music at a teen roller rink..” I always went to gay clubs and preferred them”. Thought a self-proclaimed het boy, Cumana compares his partnership with Savoni to nothing less fragile than a marriage. “Its like a relationship, really”, Cumana says “we vibe like brothers”; “We check our egos at the door, and we don't hold our feelings inside. We try not to copy what other people are doing; Its all most like a mom &pop mentality right down to the individual sounds we use. If one of us does not like something about the mix, we drop it and move on. We’d rather find another way to work it out, and we give other the freedom to work on our own creative projects, weather its dj’ing or making our own music. A relationship came become a routine day in and day out. Technically speaking, Cumana’s specialties is drum programming, energetic, yet graceful, his tribal concoctions solidify Savoni’s textured synths, which in turn spreads a shimmering glade over the vocal. Simple yet sophisticated, Dynamix Arrangements tend to work with the song, not against it. Their music might build for big room response, but its also smooth enough to sound fierce on your Discman. “The technology has come a long way”, Cumana says, “but in some ways I still feel like the kid who worked at Sam ash after school. I was always bringing home a new drum machine and busting a beat”. The next project on Dynamix remix roster also takes Cumana back to his Club hopping days. Laced with kinetic vocals by house dive Sabrina Johnston, Lectroluv’s "Movin On" has been a break out hit at Junior Vasquez sunday morning Earth marathon for some weeks now. “To me, Sabina Johnston represents the music I grew up with” Cumana says, “She is as magical to me as a big Pop Superstar, because of where I came from” . “As a dj I have so many of her records, and I always use to play them at friends parties, so when I found out we were remixing a Lectroluv song with Her on Vocals, I was blown away!” And although Inda Matrix is not a new comer to the dance scene, Cumana says that Dynamix’s approach to her bondage-themed banter just may put listeners into mind of the classic disco’s surreal side. “Her vocal is just out there!” he says. “And I am not saying it sounds like Cerrone’s “Supernature’ but it remind me of that element that we like to see in dance music again. “Supernature” was spooky, What have we done to ourselves? kinda vibe..you know what I mean? Not too freaky to play in the Clubs but still out there! Perhaps its surprise that Cumana would ultimately like to apply such noir elements to a film score.” my favorite is Midnight Express’ by George Moroder. “But like I say, we give each other the freedom to dream like that”. I think our secret is that deep down, we don’t need each other- but we need each other!”
