The Top 40’s bursting with a host of joyless songs about being at the club, and here was a genuine first: 
a whole album of songs that perfectly captured the fizz, intrigue and sheer fun of nights spent out at the discotheque. South Londoner Kathleen Brien seemed like 
an unsuspecting ambassador for 
the new wave of dance music, but if you dismissed her, you did so at your peril. ‘On A Mission’ proved that hers was a startling talent, one that harnessed the pop-nous of dubstep, UK garage and funky house with a fresh-as-a-daisy joy and an unerring ability to spot great tune after great tune. In the end, 
it felt like no understatement 
to call ‘On A Mission’ the best British dance album for years. PE
