Playlist – 13 Nov 2015 – Dance Party

November 14, 2015 Greg Gioia No comments exist

Super fun night, and my favorite kind of party to DJ– a non-stop dance party full of people who wanted to dance to a little bit of everything. I especially liked that it wasn’t a short set after a dinner or something. It was straight up dancing from 9pm until nearly 2am, and I mixed in nearly 100 songs. That sort of freedom to explore genres used to be my mainstay, but lately it’s a rarer and rarer occurrence, so I savored the opportunity.


The night itself was a raucous success. Requests were made, and played, dances were danced, and a good time was had by all. There was even a breakdancing competition that should be easy to identify in the mix, but in case you aren’t hip to the ’80s electro breakin’ hits, it starts with the Rocksteady Crew track and runs through Planet Patrol. The Spice Cup wound up in good hands. In Bright Axiom!
