New dance music post 4 yallz. Really late on this one, sorry. Pretty eclectic jumble of tracks here, but I’ve been feeling all of them, hope you like them too. Still looking for a decent title for these posts, ‘Dance Music Post’ is mad boring. Comment any suggestions. Stay breezy.

First up is a submission from a producer named Tim Gunter. He refits Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Black & Yellow’ with some electro bounce. It’s a great track to throw on at a party, although it’s got nothing on my classmate Chet Haze’s remix. No sir.

AC Slater’s fucking great. His remix of Crooker’s Cooler Cooleur has found its way into literally every single one of my DJ sets since it’s release. Phenomenal track. Anyway, he just finished another high-profile remix, Boys Noize’s monster “Yeah.”

Funky-ass remix of Girl Unit’s IRL. Girl Unit is on Night Slugs, and, not just by association, great. I’m surprised people haven’t started rapping/singing over his “Wut” yet. I’m going to. It’s gonna be about how much money and bitches I have, people I’ve killed, and bagels I eat. Rappers reading, you should do it to. Then send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll call it a competition of sorts.

Kingdom really likes Nicki Minaj. He keeps editing everyone else out of songs she’s featured on.This is not really a good song on its own, but mildly amusing nonetheless.

A few weeks ago I suddenly remembered Mr. Hudson. Not sure why I thought of him, but I tried to find a download of his unreleased Straight, No Chaser that was slated to come out on G.O.O.D. Music but never did. I found the album, it’s really good. Lydia over at Sunset in the Rearview, apparently had the same feeling of missing Mr. Hudson, and threw up this dope remix of Supernova.

I kind of hated N.E.R.D.’s latest album. And I’m a self-professed N.E.R.D. fan. ‘Hypnotize U’ was probably the biggest disappointment, mostly cause it’s a Daft Punk collab that did not pan out at all. Alex Metric reinvents the track, it’s sick.

Disko Therapy is a project of a Cornell freshman who is sampling classic disco and changing it into his own tracks. Honestly, I’m not sure where the sampling begins and if there’s any original production, but it’s a smooth track and I’m a sucker for disco.

This one isn’t new at all, but I’ve been sleeping on this dubstep group Killabits. They do their shit right. This is a remix of Aloe Blacc’s ‘I Need A Dollar’ that retains a lot of the original song qualities while somehow changing it into a heavy dubstep track. Impressive. Definitely look out for this group cause they’re one of the few dubstep artists that retain a very standard sound, but still don’t bore me. Flux Pavilion may honestly be the only other one off the top of my head.

This one builds extremely slowly, but it ends up being a really nice bloopy-bleepy piece of electro-disco. TDCC has been a favorite of mine for a very long time. Fun fact about Midas, they were the band I discovered through blogs, their early demo “Hands Off My Cash, Monty”? Classic.

This is a great track for spinning and parties, but parts do get really repetitive. What makes up for all of it comes in at the 2:30 mark. And insanely epic, complex and genius 8-bit breakdown that should be included in the best video game all time. The fact that it works in a dance track so fucking well is incidental.

In all honesty, I’ve never heard the original of this. But this is a good remix from the way the internets are drooling over it, and it’s definitely a technically great job of chopping the vocals plus just generally sonically pleasing.

I’ve posted some Oliver Twizt before, and this is the first track I’ve gotten from him since. It’s a stilted deep bass housey track that I’m really feeling. The female vocals are ridikkilous.

I know I just posted this track, and it’s not strictly dance music, but I couldn’t resist throwing it up here. I love this song, and it is danceable. Which is what these posts are all about. BUY THE REST OF THEIR EP IT’S GREAT.

Confusion’s future wife (yo con, can I be best man when you pull this off?) remixed by one of the dudes from Aeroplane. The French duo broke up but Stephen Fasano, rolling solo as The Magician, has still got it. This is a phenomenal remix of Lykke Li’s new track.
