The temperature might be dropping overseas, but Dannii Minogue and Jason Nevins have cooked up a scorching collaboration, set to send temperatures soaring on dance floors across Australia this Summer. 'Touch Me Like That' (exclusively available Wild Summer 2007) is a delicious and addictive slice of cool, club-pop. Based on the 1970's Sylvester classic 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)', the mere mention of the tune already has dance enthusiasts in a state of perpetual climax. The track has just topped the UK Club Charts, confirming Dannii's title as 'Queen of the Clubs', having reached pole position 13 times since 1997 - a feat no other female artist even comes close to. Domestically Touch Me Like has been embraced by TV and Radio added across the board by Nova ( Melbourne), and is set to be anther chart smash for Dannii.

Dannii and Jason come together to form a duo of explosive power-house proportions. The couple were first united in 2003 when Nevins remixed Minogue's smash hit 'Put The Needle On It', sending it to the top of the club charts. Four years later they have reunited on a mission to populate every dance floor and influx the airwaves across the globe.

Nevins' first burst onto the music scene back in 1997 with his landmark club classic 'It's Like That', with RUN-DMC (selling over 5 million copies worldwide). A year later Dannii was topping the UK Club Charts with 'All I Wanna Do'. Since then Jason Nevins has sprinkled his remixing magic on the likes of Madonna, Duran Duran, Fergie, Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, Kelly Clarkson, and Rihanna. Miss Minogue meanwhile has become the 'Queen of the Clubs', topping the UK dance charts more times than any other female artist - a record 12 times. These chart toppers include 'Who Do You Love Now-' 'You Won't Forget About Me,' 'I Begin To Wonder,' 'Everything I Wanted,' 'Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling' and 'He's The Greatest Dancer'.

Miss Minogue is no stranger to the dance scene, and has just returned from the sun-drenched island of Ibiza. Here she caught up with DJ friends including Roger Sanchez and soaked up inspiration for new material. Dannii also choose the exotic location to put her X Factor hopefuls under extreme pressure, making what is now 'Team Minogue'. X Factor airs every Saturday night on ITV 1.

Mr. Nevins, a true New Yorker, burst on the scene putting out numerous cut and paste tracks and began remixing for small budgets. It wasn't long until he bagged his own radio show (playing a diverse mix of underground house and mainstream dance) before taking the club world by storm.

An extraordinary set of remixes create the perfect accompaniment to the already seamless original. Fresh from mixing the Spice Girls, Robyn and Rihanna, Soul Seekerz reincarnate a Dannii single for the third time (having delivered two of the most popular mixes of her two previous singles.) Jack Rokka (aka Digital Dog), in favour after crafting recent mixes for Pink and Fat Boy Slim, reinterprets the track as an electro epic. Stonebridge, LMC, Space Cowboy, Kenny Hayes and Jason Nevins himself also provide pulsating versions of the single.

X Factor judge and recording artist Dannii Minogue, alongside American dance legend Jason Nevins, is the perfect combination (both musically and lyrically) for the party season!
