Here's a few more tracks that have shook up my soul on the dance floor this last year:

Moby - "Natural Blues-Perfecto Mix," V2 Records 1999
The DJ superstar came out with a play that has become a international sensation, going platinum or gold in 10 countries. The soulful "Natural Blues" moves with sampled gospel lyrics from the 1920s, placed deep within a building trance/house tracks. As we lose ourselves in this track, we know that "nobody knows our trouble like God."click here to listen .

Vernessa Mitchell/Junior Vasquez - "This Joy-Razor & Guido Radio Mix," Strictly Rhythm 1999
"This Joy" drove dance floors crazy all over the world. Gospel singer Vernessa Mitchell, founder of Higher Ground Ministries, has perfomed straight up gospel for the likes of Bill Clinton at his inauguration in 1997 as well as for women on the street or in prison. In this powerful gospel track, she teams up with none other than Junior Vasquez. The result is a testimony that makes you jump for Joy.click here to listen .

Groove Armada - "Inside My Mind (Blue Skies)," Jive Records 2000
This meditative track might be lost sometimes on the hit album that includes sexier tracks like "I see you baby shakin that ass." However, the repetitive refrain of blue skies inside the mind while rain blows on the outside clears the brain and cleans the soul.click here to listen .
