Dance music has, really, one goal. The essential need is to uncontrollably drive human beings to the dance floor where they can grind, sweat, and groove the pleasure of the bar owners' refreshment count. If an artist has the talent to write and program those kinds of beats - it's money in the bank. Arnold G's ability to compose pulsating and kinetic dance beats is money in the bank. His 12-track CD, "Driven (straight to the dance floor)", is a mix of house/trance cuts that are written for DJ's use - except for the one pop tune (bonus track at the end, "Carry On"). Track 2, "Give it to Me Baby", sets itself up in traditional dance fashion - key stab delays build up the anticipation for the beat and move. Cymbals pan and shuffle and a hollow key envelope wraps the listener. In track 4, "Ocean Dreams", vocalist, Jennifer Lispius, lends her incredible soprano vibrato to the mix in a track that intends to lose the dance floor to insanity. The ominous kick opening that pushed a heartbeat into the mix is heard in track 5's, "I'm Not in Love", the 10CC classic redone in trance with washed reverbed background vocals. Arnold G finishes off the record with a bonus track and pop effort, "Carry On". The ample effort showcases his vocal abilities and the result is solid. The clear verdict here, though, is all about the groove and the beats. Arnold G has that keen sense of beat that should make him extremely welcomed in clubs. Well done. --- earbuzz, Don, USA

Arnold G already mastered laying down tracks that are thick and lush in the right ways; density and texture are nailed pretty well. Arnold G knows, basically, how to put good electronic dance together. It's tightly woven. This could light up some dance floors. -- review by Kristofer Upjohn (DJFIX), UK
