Things we love about The Glitch Mob: Everything. Love their name, love their artwork, their style, their musical drama and humor. “Warrior Concerto” is a natural soundtrack to the post post post post modern world, the merging of digital and flesh. This was released like, ten minutes ago and I’m all Beatlemania on it.

Aint nuthin’ but a party. A dance floor mashing mash up of Latin and Afro-Caribbean rhythms, pushed along by a sexy synth bass and lead bongos. That’s right, lead bongos. “Ghumbah” is remixed 6 (count ’em) SIX times on this EP, cleverly titled “Ghumbah.”

As an avowed speaker junkie myself, it’s no surprise I have a gr8 affection for this Southern California dance music pop machine. Speaker Junkies make some of the catchiest, most dance floor-friendly records on the West Coast, and sell out venues around the world. They’re young, they’re hot, hey, their CD is distributed by Hot Topic! Here’s some candy from their brand new album.

Diggin’ this electro-dance number today. “Mad Monkey” brings an 80’s Atari sound with a crunchy backup bass line and synthy drum loops that are sure to wreak some havoc on the dance-floor. Its fun, fast-paced and makes your body wanna shake and shimmy all night long. Break out the glow sticks baby! Rave on =)

This is the dance mix of “Shut Up and Let Me Dance” off the “Shut Up and Let Me Dance” maxi single featuring “Shut Up and Let Me Dance.” Are we noticing a theme here? Speaker Junkies are fabulous and hawt and glamorous and they rool. They are Orange County’s mo’ficial ‘lectronica sex-o-gram to the world.

New Zealand recording artist Ladyhawke exploded on the music scene in 2002, snatching up accolades like: “Best Solo Artist” and, “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” – just to name a few. While she was busy attending award shows, playing to sold-out crowds, and recording music, she sent out “Dust till Dawn” asking some of her favorite dance music producers to take their shot at a remix. The best remix to come back is the Pablo Decorder Remix; A griddy low-end heavy house song that will have you dancing from dusk till dawn.

Very contemporary digitizoid dance muzik. A veritable feast of ear-friendly synth sounds with every conceivable filter and oscillator, served up hot over a dance floor pounding beat. It sort of cleans out your head. Thanks, J Courage, this is just what the doctor ordered. Tip to Subverse for pulling this up! Wikkid good fun.

Sex and Dancing and Drugs, Oh My! Yes, I AM all about electronic dance music on New Years Eve.

Thank you all for hanging, hope you have enjoyed my selections. Dj Hero, take us out.

Time to step it up toward New Years Eve. Here’s a funky electro-sexy pop ditty from Small Sins, AKA former Carnations singer Thomas D’Arcy. I love the production – it has some brilliant unexpected turns and the guest vocal by K-OS is gr8. Fans of Beck will agree. Hawt.
