Modlook 29 Music: Pre-Valentine's Dance Picks
Posted: Feb 04 2015
This week's picks serve as a prelude to the upcoming Valentine's day mush. Also can be used post Valentine's, to work off those extra chocolatey calories. If you're single, this playlist might inspire you to go out for a night of fun and (who knows) a potential Valentine's match? If you're taken, this playlist will get you in the mood to have a good time! Shake off the cold and get movin' no matter what your status is!
Jessie Ware - Desire (Rainer & Grimm Remix)
Up first is one of our favorite ladies. Jessie Ware, always putting in down, with a remix with top notch producers Rainer + Grimm where they do a good job mixing her sweet voice with a mesmerizing, deep beat.
Hollow Coves - The Woods
The duo stepped away from their electronic heavy influences and took a trip into the woods. I certainly want to go with them. This one is a little slower, but I do what I want.
Ki:Theory - Open Wound (ODESZA Remix)
Odesza can do no wrong. I've pretty much featured an ODESZA song in every dance playlist I have put together since I discovered them.
Rihanna Ft. Kanye & Paul McCartney - FourFiveSeconds (DJ Mustard Remix)
DJ Mustard killed it with this remix of the now heavily trending song FourFiveSeconds by Rihanna, Kanye and Paul McCartney.
Ben Howard - I Forget Where We Were (Boehm Remix & George Oglivie Cover)
A lot of good artists in this one. A great "night ride around town" tune. (Spoiler Alert) The violin around 2:45 is a pleasant surprise!
Coleman Hell - 2 Heads
We are loving a lot of these bluegrass and dance beat combinations! I can see myself doing a futuristic square dance spinoff to this song. Coleman's voice is amazing in this one too.
Satin Jackets feat. Esser - Shine On You
Alternative-Electronic Satin Jackets step out with this tune reminiscent of Miami Horror and Tensnake. This tune will serve us well way past spring and into the summer season.
Julio Bashmore feat. Bixby - KONG
One of my favorite DJ's of 2014-15, Julio Bashmore's new single featuring the soulful singer Bixby. Really housey vibes in this one with some fun, tropical drum beats.
Peking Duck feat. Nicole Millar - High (Yahtzel Remix)
Sultry voice, deep synth-pop vibes, Good night driving or getting-ready song.
Nick Leng - Leaves
Nick Leng kinda reminds me of Washed Out and Prelow. It gives you those floating in the ocean kinda feelings.
Jack Garratt - Worry
Our sassy heartbreak song quota for the week has been properly fulfilled.
Freedom Fry - Shaky Ground (Hey Na Na Na)
Low-Key Hipster dance party tunes make us happy. Take a risk tonight, everything will be alright! (maybe). At least this song leads us to believe so!
Kaytranada feat. Vic Mensa - Drive Me Crazy
Kaytranada is been making a huge buzz since early last year, not to mention Vic Mensa, who came out with a bang last year with his own dancy single "Down On My Luck". Now they have joined forces to make this piece of awesomeness.
