Six months and 5,000+ subscriptions/downloads later, here are my fave tunes from my DJ podcasts so far. As always there are infectious melodies, smooth mixing, female and male vocals and some of my fave remixers. A great introduction for the newcomers and a reminder of where we have been for the veterans. The track list also includes the name of the podcast episode (linked) where you can find the tune. Look for part two filled with great dance tunes in another six months.
The Track List (75:19):
It's only been two weeks since the last set upload "NYC is Burning" which is still burning up my ears. But I couldn't hold onto this new set for much longer. Your shoes will be tapping or rather dancing to the sound of this set (Shoes by Tiga, track #2). And just who is that uncredited female voice talking on this track? Hmmm. Nobody seems to know for sure. This track is about '4 minutes' long, just plain fun and 'hard candy' to your ears. More like this please, Madge and Tiga. The Hard(ly) Candy phase is over!
The Freemasons return with Sophie Ellis-Bexter on my fave tune of this moment with a leaked edit of Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer (track #4). I understand it sees a proper release very soon. A summer anthem I predict. I look forward to the remixes. In the mean time, enjoy my little extended version.
Digital Dog shows up yet again on my playlist. Brits Steve Cornish and Nick Mace make up Digital Dog and are one of those rare DJ/producers that can take an okay song and turn it into greatness. Another case in point: Chemistry by Velvet (track #5).
A great song does not always have to have vocals. Miami to Altanta by Pryda (Track #8) is a bit more progressive than what is on most of my sets but is so good. Give it a chance. I decided to keep the progressive sounds coming for the next few minutes with lots of energy until the all too fun neo-disco closer The Bitch is Back by Warren Clarke (Track #12). You may find yourself wanting more so just press repeat. Enjoy!
"Can you stay up for the weekend and blame god for looking too old
can find all that you stand for has been replaced with mountains of gold
you cannot dream yourself to notice to feel pain and swallow fear
but can you stay up for the weekend for next year
God i can’t do this any more though ill be laid down on the floor as many feet walk through the door
I’m not alone"
(Insert Poynter Pump dance move now! My friends will get it.) I'm Not Alone - Calvin Harris (track #1)
