We asked Brian Concannon to share some of his surefire dance songs. He's also made a mini-mix that's available for free download at djghozt.com.
1. Cazzette, "Beam Me Up (Original Mix)": I've had this in rotation since February. Great vocal. Love the high-hats in the breakdown.
2. Daft Punk, "Get Lucky (MHand Remix)": When is Daft Punk ever the wrong answer?
3. DJ Dan and Lookback, "Nothin' But a Party (Original Mix)": The Fatback Band sample says it all. "Party time is anytime and anytime is party time!"
4. 2 Chainz, "I'm Different (Enferno Remix)": Never has a single piano note evoked a bigger reaction.
5. Alvaro and Mercer featuring Lil' Jon, "Welcome to the Jungle (Original Mix)": Turbulence.
6. Krewella, "Alive (Cash Cash and Kalkutta Remix)": Such a great song on so many levels.
7. Ruen and Mister Gray, "Shake That ... (Original Mix)": I don't always play throwbacks at peak hour, but when I do it's Splack Pack.
