Aaliyah still makes an impact in music today. Her smoothness is unmatched by anyone today. Also, watch any Aaliyah video for instructions on how to really shoot a dance sequence. Girl had mooooooves.
To celebrate Baby girl, I’ve posted a couple latin flavoured remixes I often play when I’m DJing. I love this shit.

Two dance numbers with A LOT of flavour today.
First is this track from Portuguese DJ Mastiksoul that I can’t get enough of! It’s filthy and I can picture winding down to the ground and never getting up with this one. pop it!

Second is from South African house DJ Mujava. This one makes me throw my shoes off and dance in very embarrassing ways (picture a fun African tribal dance circle with one over-enthusiastic white kid in the middle going crazy. With loincloth of course).

Feeling a little bummed out these days because of the passing of the best Prime Minister we never had - Jack Layton - but like Jack said, you’ve gotta remain optimistic. So I won’t stop posting music to dance to, even on these sad days. I will however post this Gaga remix by one of my favourite indie bands Wild Beasts. The song bumps along like a heartbeat.
Gnucci Banana is a crazy chick from Sweden, associated with Spoek Mathambo, some jungle remix of a Miike Snow’s “Animal” and pushed by First Up! (a music blog I LOVE!). This is her new song, does this not just wanna make you wanna bounce of walls?

A disco remix from Oliver brightens up the already sunny new track from France’s Housse De Racket. These guys used to play for Phoenix and Air, so they are VERY French and VERY cool. Don’t hurt ‘em boys!
The synth lines in the re-work made me feel like there were firewoks in my veins! Thrilling stuff. (the track comes from new new album due at the end of the month)

This reminds me of Bizarre Love Triangle - with a disco twist! C’est parfait.
beaumont feat. ill collins - city meets soldier (clancy remix) [128kbps] by beaumont_music
Wolf Gang “Stay And Defend” (The Magician ‘Caribbean Disco’ Remix) by TheMagician
A gloriously happy remix from the always amazing Magician. This one’s a re-working of wacky UK pop kid Wolf Gang. He’s going to make a big splash on year-end lists in 2011, so look out for his mug and voice. While his stuff is great, I really, really love this island beach party remix. It’s the musical equivalent of pineapples.
