New York, NY, December 18, 2016 --( Purple Rose Records is proud to announce the release of their author James Arena's new book, "Stars of '90s Dance Pop." Twenty-nine of the 90’s premiere pop singers, songwriters, producers, DJs and industry professionals come together in the new book, published by McFarland & Co.

Interviews are conducted in a brisk Q&A format as these legendary artists personally explain how creativity and survival coexisted in the frantic world of 90s dance pop.

"Stars of '90s Dance Pop" is the fourth book in a dance music series by Mr. Arena.
