Top Songs of 2013: Best Dance Music 11-20

2013 was another good year for dance music. In narrowing down this list, I focused on songs that capture the genres and artists of the zeitgeist…at least as it appears from my weird indie hole in the wall. Thus, there is no Miley Cyrus here, but I was more likely to include Lorde than a comparable remix that felt out of time. Despite such considerations, I think this list has more retro remixes than any previous year. Could it be that 2013’s producers were daydreaming of the sexual revolution? I’m just gonna assume its so. tell me more

Bag Raiders, Classixx and RAC play the Mezzanine this Saturday

A good friend just told me that June 1st three fantastic DJs—Bag Raiders, Classixx, and the Remix Artists Collective—are going to be at the Mezzanine.

David Guetta – A True #1 DJ or a Sellout?

Poor David Guetta sure has a tough time of it. Beneath the piles of babes, drugs, and awards, is a man accused. He’s accused of writing songs he didn’t write, and stealing ones he did, accused of being dead, and recently of being a fake DJ. Surely you’ve seen the YouTube video: It’s possible that this is all a trick of the lighting in the club, but even if his mixer were turned off, I still wouldn’t buy that Guetta is a total fake. After all the guy’s been live Djing since he was seventeen. Surely if he didn’t know… tell me more

Mashups of Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand

[Image from Last.fm] I suspect that "Barbera Streisand" is the dance jam of the summer. Mainly because it's around, but not on the radio so your average radio drone hasn't heard it a thousand times. I imagine revelers saying, "Oh I know this! Wasn't it on Glee?" and their reveler friends saying "I dunno, but it sure makes me want to dance!" As it should.  But you know I like to mix it up so, I'm sharing some of my favorite mashups of Duck Sauce's Bab's hit. The song barely has vocals so it's easy to mash and mix.

Adele overplayed? Remix it, mash it, cover it

[image thanks to WolvesAteMyFace by way of MelodyOfYourLife]   If you’ve been out in the world lately, or even if you haven’t, you’ve probably heard Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” At the mashup night where I like to dance, they are in the habit of playing it two or three times in the same night. But, hey, it’s a great song and Adele’s fame is much deserved–no doubt the woman can sing. But at this point, we need some different versions of it because the original is getting tiresome from overplay. Here’s a favorite remix, cover and mashup to allow… tell me more
